Saturday morning I took the van into Sears to get new front tires, the transmission fluid changed and the oil changed. They estimated it would take 3 hours so I took the time to do some clothes shopping. It was important to find a dress to wear to the wedding on Saturday. I looked through Sears, walked through Old Navy and wound up at JC Penny where I found the dress on the left. I tried on about 5 and this was the last one I tried on, cause it was the most expensive. Naturally it fit the best and I loved it. $100, marked down to $60. Well that was more than I wanted to spend but oh well, I love it, I can wear it with anything and it looks good on me. I took it to the counter where it rang up at $50 and they gave me an additional $10 off. 60% off a dress that I like and fits me perfectly! Wow! Then I went to the GAP and had to ask for a smaller size for the pants I was trying on. Hello 10's!
(we won't speak of the fail that is the Victoria Secret Boy shorts that I will be returning/ exchanging for underwear that does not get stretched out all to hell in one wearing)
After shopping I oversaw the set up of the 2 rounds that I completed last year (one was completed in Jan of this year). They turned out pretty good. I'm borrowing one for Lilies since I will be attending solo. With P's knee out of commission he is going to stay home and watch the cats instead of hobbling all over uneven terrain for a week.
Sunday I did some wood working and general gathering of my garb to ready it for the packing. I knocked the edges off the center pole, did a bit of sanding on the spokes, secured and drilled out the support hole on the sleeve on the center pole, built 3 benches, sewed straps for shelf and bar that I'm rigging in the shade fly. I brought up my food boxes and have started to pack them. I have a head wrap and kerchief ready for hemming. I have a wool hood partially sewn.
Now I just need to find the time to see a play at the Guthrie on Thursday, pack the van and be ready to leave for Sandstone Friday afternoon. It's going to be a crazy week.
