Sometimes it is just funny how things work out.  You go into a project or an activity with one plan and something else happens.

This past weekend, I went to a flea market with a friend.  It sounded like it was going to be a big event.  Instead, it comprised about six tables.  But one of these tables was full of original art and prints.  I fell in love with her “education” prints.

Sorry, the colors aren’t great because I snapped this in lamplight with my phone.  But it says:  Education is much like a tree which must be allowed to grow and mature.

I wasn’t looking for a print for my office, but that’s what I found.  Every time I see it on my bookshelf, I smile.

After the flea market, we popped over to Half Price Books.  My friend found a stack of original blue-cover Nancy Drews.  I found two of Jared Diamonds books.  They didn’t have Guns, Germs and Steal which I saw with my teen, but I did get Collapse and The Third Chimpanzee.  

These aren’t the things I went out looking for this weekend, but they are delightful finds.  I know.

I have two manuscripts and a class to finish.  Then I am going to curl up on the sofa and read.
