It's the Little Things...

I woke up to the sound of rain early this morning.

Gentle pitter patter on the roof...

that eventually turned to loud crashing rain with flashes of lightening and roars of thunder in the background.

It's been so dry in our part of the world that the thunder shower was a welcome sound.

Lord thank you for the rain.
This parched land surely needed it.

A couple of days ago both my daughters had the day off from work so we decided to drive an hour and a half to a neighboring town to do some shopping.

I was excited to find out this town had a K-Mart.  It was our first stop.  I like to visit K-Marts when I find them.  There doesn't seem to be too many of them around anymore, sadly enough.

Youngest daughter didn't care much for it.  She said it looked like a really big dollar store.  I laughed about it but when I looked around I realized there was some truth to her observation.  There were big yellow sale signs everywhere.  Big Blowout Sale.  I suppose it was an end of Summer sale.

I made my way around the entire store, not really needing anything or looking for anything in particular. 

Just moseying...

enjoying the eighties music coming from the speakers above our head...

quietly singing along.

I made my way to the checkout and paid for my three pair of cotton capri leggings which were part of the Big Blowout Sale.  $4.99 each.  Pretty good deal.

We went to a few other stores...
Target, Marshall's, and one other quaint boutique downtown.

When we got in the car to go home I was surprised to hear that Oldest Daughter P took a liking to a classic eighties song she heard at K-Mart.  I asked which one and quickly looked it up and downloaded it on my phone.  

Don't You Want Me Baby
The Human League

We listened to it all the way home, along with a few other oldie songs I already had on my phone with the help of a nifty little aux cord.  Isn't technology wonderful?

We talked, we laughed, we sang along to old corny songs, and managed to buy ourselves a little something in the process. 

 It was a fun day.
 I love my girls.
