A Busy Weekend!!

Hi all!
Hope you all had a fun weekend!!
Mine was sooooo busy, but fun!
Friday night started with the Ventura Ghost Tour. It was so interesting to find out not only about the ghost stories, but the history of Downtown Ventura.
The tour was given by Richard Senate. He is an authority on the paranormal and history in this area. He is a published author, teacher and he has even been on tv.Google him to find out more.
Saturday, we were busy with the usual Saturday errands, then a lovely dinner out with friends.
Sunday was the Ventura Flea Market. My husband and I went very early, then we met my friend, and blogging buddy Jamie. My husband left us girls to our own shopping time. Jamie and I had a ball as usual. We shopped and talked non stop!! After we shopped til we could shop no more, we all headed to Downtown Ventura for lunch at Nona's Courtyard Cafe. In the Bella Maggiore Hotel. One of the haunted sites on our tour Friday night! Lunch was delicious.
Dear sweet Jamie insisted on treating us to lunch even with our protests!!!! The girl is stubborn!!
She also presented me with the most lovely orchid plant for Thanksgiving.
Thank you sweet Jamie!!
In the pictures you can see my beautiful orchid, as well as some of my flea market finds. I got some old Christmas ornaments, a really great old mirror, old sheet music, and other misc items not pictured.
I'm sure you are all busy this week getting ready for the big T day on Thursday.
I will try to post another day this week. I have more to talk about, as I have received an award from another sweet blog friend.
Have a great Monday!!!
Chat again soon.
