Summer outing

It was an overcast day and the boys managed to sleep too late for us to go to the only showing of the movie we wanted to see - at 11 a.m.  Yes.  They have discovered sleeping in.  No matter.  We did errands and ate lunch out.  By now, the boys ignore that I am clicking away as they go about eating lunch...
The skies over us opened up and poured the rest of the afternoon.  We had a lot to do,  including dropping off some 25 year old Beta tapes to be transferred to DVD, picking up a prescription, 
stopping by Hobby Lobby, HEB, and Home Depot...
But a happy thing happened in the parking lot at Hob Lob.  Next to my car was parked a cart with what looked to be like someone's Goodwill donation - yes, in the pouring rain, just sitting there were these:
Anchor Hocking mixing bowls in mint condition.  The boys laughed at me for grabbing them.  Eventually, I reasoned, they would have gotten smashed out there!  Guess this was my version of dumpster diving. The only thing I found to buy at Hob Lob was this pretty birdy tray:
which was a whopping $2.  It's cute, but may eventually end up painted and  modge podged. 
But, really, I was more excited about the burgers and the free mixing bowls.
  Can't beat free...
