Good bye, Harry Potter

Training: the workout today was to do 6 miles @ 11:30 minutes. I don't have a stop watch, but I was going to be thankful if I made it through the 6 miles. From my place to my parents' house is 3.5 miles so I figured I'd go there and back and walk the last mile. I was out by 7 AM and came home around 8:30, so I think I did alright. The heat wasn't so bad that early in the morning. When I got to my parents' house, I took the newspapers right up to the door and ran back home. When I stopped by there later in the morning, Mom told me that Dad thought it was my cousin that did that. Hah!

Yard sale: I planned a yard sale route, but the only one that I bought something at wasn't one that I originally planned to go to. I ended up taking a large hexagon table for $5 for the living room and some measuring cups for $1. Now all I need is to find a nice lamp to put on top of it.

Putting the table in my car was a challenge. I didn't fit in the back seat or the trunk. A guy walking by asked me if I needed help. "Uh no, that's okay..." He responded with "It looks like it's going to be a little tight" and walked off. Yeah, tell me about it. I finally got it in the front seat and got back in the car. The same guy walked by and gave me a thumbs up.

I came home to drop off the table and headed back out to the movie theater to get tickets to tonight's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 showing. The same area was having a farmer's market, so I picked up some peaches. I was going to pick up a beautiful flower bouquet, but I didn't have enough cash on me. Womp.

Family: My sister won 3rd place in her age group (13 years and older) in the town's sidewalk chalk contest. Her entry was a squirrel eating some ice cream.

Friends: I had my first visitors come by the house that were not family. Meg and Robyn stopped by tonight to check out the house and pick me up so that we could go see the final Harry Potter movie. We ate at a TexMex place and go to the theater 30 minutes beforehand to get good seats. We were lucky to find 3 seats together because the place was getting packed quickly. The movie was EPIC. SOOO good. I felt a sense of sadness when the movie title showed up though. There won't be any more HP movies to look forward to. Fortunately with the books all being published and the movies will all be available on DVD, I can relive the magic over and over and over again. Next up, Captain America.

You've been a busy lady lately! Congrats on conquering your 6 mile run. Whoop whoop! Congrats to your sis too.

Nice scores at the yard sales. My mom has those Corningware dishes and they rock - they'll last you forever.

And yes, I cut that flower by hand. I seem to like to torture myself with fussy cutting. :)

I went to see the movie twice...I didn't cry, but it was still so touching! Now I'm rereading the series to keep it going. :)
