Day trips are one of the ways we are spending our recent retirement.
On the way to our destination yesterday, we stopped in Decatur (IN)
at one of the thrift stores we occasionally check out.
I was pleased to find this unusual small covered dish - for a quarter!
Then, arriving in Redkey,
we parked the car behind this stop sign,
stepped onto the sidewalk and took a peek at the street fair ahead of us.
Before venturing forward we turned the corner to check out Jeffrey Miller's shop.
We were amazed by this colorful display of mid-century modern glassware in its window!
Corner Store Antiques ~ "Mid-centery and Beyond"
This place was chock full of interesting mid-century pieces!
After a stroll through a couple of other shops,
a walk through the street fair,
and purchase of two amazing taffy apples sold by the local Nazarene Church,
we headed home on country roads.
I asked Gary to back up and stop the car so I could get a picture of this deserted building.
(Not sure WHY it captured my fancy.....)
Banks of beautiful trees in their autumn splendor
lined fields to our right and to our left as we traveled roads we'd never traveled before.
I am so thankful for this season in our lives
and the health and resources to enjoy it.
Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father,
who created all the lights in the heavens.
