Went to Corvallis over last weekend. The Dress Barn was holding a clothes swap. This past Spring I had taken some clothes, well, LOTS of clothes to Corvallis to share with friend Carol and many of them did not work for her, so she suggested I donate to the clothes swap. For each article you get a coupon. In the Fall when all of the clothes were collected there was a swap. For each coupon you can chose an article of clothing. They have the place set up like a store, on racks and everything by size. Sizes from petites up to size 4x. I got 9 pieces I am really thrilled with. Three really nice Jones New York jackets/blazers, nice little sweater, assorted tops- 3 t-shirts, and a skirt.... also went to a couple garage sales and an estate sale...where I found 2 primitive wooden geese for the yard.
It was a beautiful, wonderful day, warm, sunny.. perfect! We hot tubbed that night, fun....
THEN Saturday I drove home. Was trying to get from Lebanon to hwy 20 (?) the North Santiam.. and somehow missed my turn and wandered about for miles..... I had never gone this way in this direction before, have done it from the opposite- east to west, not west to east, and boy did I mess up. The gps was not doing what I wanted it to do TALK to me, just brought up a lame map!!! Just kept going in the general direction of where I thought I needed to go and eventually ended up in Stayton, which is a good thing, but not near the turn off by the Gingerbread House where I wanted to be.
I went over there by way of the Sweet Home pass and it is an awful, windy thing, with LOTS of log trucks and did not want to do that again... I always over time forget how bad that road really is, altho a beauty in its own way.. NOT for driving and no way would I take an RV over it!!!
Flowers were from Carol's house and covered bridge was in my wanderings, bet I could never find it again :)
Take Care All!!!!
Haha.... look at the giraffe peering between our shoulders....
