Ran Away….

I woke up today and asked Charlie if he wanted to go to Grand Haven.  He said yes so we left the house in 20 minutes and were gone.  Ran away and threw the job list out the window.  We took the CJ 7 Jeep down and Chloe went with us.

We walked along the Chinook Pier, stopped into a Celtic shop and bought a few fairies for the fairy gardens, looked at the boats and trains and wandered back.  We drove up and down the downtown shopping area and had a peek at what was there.  Stopped somewhere to grab something to eat and decided to take the top down off the Jeep.  Once it was folded down and tucked away it started to spit with rain.  I mean almost IMMEDIATELY.  I am not joking.  oh well.

We drove up to Muskegon and looked for Korina’s coffee place called the Brew House.  She has been bugging me to get down there and of course since it was totally unplanned we missed her by a short time as she had already left.  Sod’s law.  We meandered back along Business 31 instead of the express way and went through Whitehall and Montague to look for the location that has the farmers market and the artisan market.  I noticed that Dogs and Suds was open finally as every time I had been by they had been closed before.  We got something to eat and meandered home via the back roads.

Charlie took photos of Chloe and I sitting on the two new boulders that I impulse bought for the stone circle in the woods project.  They were delivered last week and dumped by the front fence until we get a few more.  We have to decide where they will be place in the forest.  One is two ton and the other is 1.5 ton.

Charlie and the Sun Flowers

Charlie also wanted a photo of himself with the sunflowers to show them to scale.  These sun flowers were planted by the birds on top of my tatties!!  Sunflowers are doing great but I haven’t seen my tatties for some time now.

 

Red Sun Flower

I have been waiting for some time but finally the RED sunflowers that I planted just popped yesterday.  woohoo!

All in all it was an enjoyable day even if we didn’t get a thing done.  On a side note: my new short spikey hair cut really works well in the Jeep.  All that wind makes my hair stand straight up which is exactly what it is supposed to do!
