This last weekend was full of summer wonders and wanders. Grant and I went to the Norman mid-summer festival and Grant bought his first piece of art for our home! It is a brush-work style rooster that had enough personality that it called to us. I also acquired a blue gem hairpin that catches the light beautifully. We treated ourselves to fresh lemonade and an indian taco while we listened to a Jimi Hendrix cover band. Also, as a little Friday the 13th indulgence, we took ourselves to see The Cabin in the Woods!
The rest of the weekend was spent roadtripping with some pretty fantastic ladies to Eureka Springs and Crystal Bridges Museum. Waffle House eats, quaint farmer's market, the original Walton's 5 and Dime, America!, gypsy jazz, holy springs, terrible Indian food but the best chai on the planet, ill-formed hippie bands, ghost hunts and snooty cats, odd monastic buildings, crazy shop owners that mumble strange things, homemade ginger ale and gin, spilled wine, reggae dancing, lurking deer, a sporatic rainstorm that looked like magic on the water, the Complete 'Course of the Empire' series by Thomas Cole, dorrito tacos, Doubleshot, seeing steam rise from the hot pavement, we shut down the town and morning came too soon.
