My sister Lindy and I went from the foggy Carpinteria Flea Market (at the beach) (do you like the new farmer's market shopping bag i found there? can you see all the work that went into it? It's all hand crocheted) to the sun and tree filled Lavender Festival in Ojai (about 20 miles inland). We walked and walked and shopped and talked. We drank lavender infused iced tea (so delicious). We ate (and no kj, i didn't have any trouble). The one thing i didn't do was take many photos, I blame my little finger. Besides I could never have captured the day, you had to be there.
After the festival we took a walk around downtown Ojai and to the best little independant book store in the world (besides Powells). I found these vintage books, the Tolkien triology and the three nature books. I love the gentle words and illustrations found on every page. It was a perfect day, being with my sister, finding treasures, and seeing the old oak trees i love.
Today it's monday and back to work (right after xrays). Have a good week everyone. :)
