Restful Sunday

Got up early so Jean and I could go to our local swap meet this morning. It opened at 7 am but we waited until 8 am because if you arrive at 7 am, a lot of the vendors still are not set up and ready to start selling. I have not been to the main Sunday swap meet in years. Ben and I used to go all the time back before we were married even though we didn't live in this valley back then. The swap meet is held at the old Saugus Speedway. They have not used the race track in more than 15 years, but the use the grounds for the swap meet and other events. The speedway was originally a rodeo arena way back in time. Below is a link that will take you to the chronological history of the speedway. We were there for a little over an hour. It sure is not as good as it was back in the 1970's when I used to go there at least once or twice a month. They just don't have any good stuff anymore. Jean bought a few things including 2 rose trees. I only bought a couple of yard decorations because they were so inexpensive. One is a humming bird on a metal stick that it's wings flap in the wind and the other is a flower on a metal stick. When I got home, I did some laundry and did some vacuuming. All the running around I've been doing (Friday evening, all day Saturday and this morning) really made me tired. When I was young, I never got tired from being out running around. I actually fell asleep on the couch around 1:30 pm and didn't wake up until around 3 pm when Hiker came in and started licking my face.
