On the road

After longer than expected time off due to flooding in the East, we finally hit the road again tomorrow.  I leave with a new and improved list of items I would love to find thrifting or at flea markets, items that include but not limited to vinyl.  Come Spring we'll be adding on to the rolling caravan of fun and adventure and I would like to have a welcome basket of vintage sundries and nostalgic gifties prepared.

I find myself looking forward more and more for those deliciously stocked, independently owned book stores much like the one we stumbled upon in Kentucky. When we pulled a book out of the shelf, there was no backing to the shelf. When we took a look, we could see a giant, dark room on the other side with shelf after pregnant shelf just overflowing with books. We asked the owner if we could browse that room but she replied that it was her warehouse. I still find myself fantasizing over what could be there.

We leave Texas just as glimpses of autumn are being ushered in. This evening I caught the feeling of October and almost expected the scents of that month to come wafting by. Since it is a big festival month in the state, there  has never been an October, in my memory,  without the smell of caramel corn, cotton candy and even pinion wood burning late in the evening. I would always get the chiminea and Mexican hot chocolate started by mid month.
