Although last night DH had agreed we needed to get rolling and accomplish what we could before the heat set in, he slept late this morning. It was nice to have the deck alone for a while in the early hours, but the heat moved in steadily. Also there was a lot of breeze which is unusual this time of year when the air is so warm. Finally, I rousted DH out and said I was hitting the road; he hustled and joined me. A few errands in town and then over to Sam’s for a few bulk things. Since we were only about 15 minutes from the Oklahoma border, we decided to scout out flea markets in Miami. The wildflowers were beautiful due to heat and recent rains, but I could take no pictures as we were traveling the turnpike. Safety was a factor over picture snapping. Once in Miami, there weren’t many antique stores or flea markets. Loads of casinos if you wanted to gamble though! However, we scared up a place or two,and one was packed with glassware and china. It was a challenge to seek finds in the loaded shelves. When flea marketing, it is really the hunt that is as thrilling as bagging the dish!
Tomorrow the temps are to be even higher than today. So maybe we will brew up pitchers of iced tea early and hunker down for reading some good books outside in the shade.
