Several weeks ago, I made a trip to mum's to see my son play soccer for his Senior Night at college (*still wonders when she became the mum of a college senior*). On the way there, I had the chance to spend a couple of hours at [personal profile] lady_karelia 's where she made a wonderful dinner and [personal profile] calypsobard joined us! Be jealous, very jealous as you view the picspam :D

friends fun and french dinner )

... was Sunday and we again slept till we woke which turned out to be about 9 a.m.ish. A light breakfast in the room and we dressed and packed and loaded up the car to head home. On the way, as we were getting near the exit off I-40 for Sallisaw, we thought about seeing some things there we wanted to see.

The first stop was the 14 Flags Museum in downtown Sallisaw. Open every day and free, it's a sort of 'unmanned museum' set up in old log cabins, the first of which had been a judge's house. Stepping in the front doors to a small area, you could view the rooms set up from behind a plexiglass divider and see what life for the settlers here was like.

and so ends our Labor Day weekend mini trip :D

Picking up with where we left off with Day 1

Waking the next morning, we had a light breakfast and then took off for Safari Sanctuary in Broken Arrow. While there is a zoo in Tulsa, this really interested us, especially Joe who loves the Big Cats, because you could feed them. They are reasonable for admission and for $8 we got a bag of 10 chicken legs to feed the kitties, and he did! All funds raised goes back into the upkeep and care of the animals there. These have all come to them from "other situations". For example, one of the tigers, had been kept as a pet in a condo and abused by its owner.

Lions & Tigers & Ligers OH MY! )

Day 3 to come yet!

Joe's birthday was in July but during the week rent was due so we never got a chance to do anything special for him. We decided instead, to get away for the Labor Day weekend since he'd have four days off with the holiday and I'd have three. I went ahead and took one vacation day for that Friday and we had a joint birthday weekend since mine was 3 September.

One of the things Joe had been wanting to do was visit Shepherd's Chapel in Gravette AR. It's pastored by a minister he respects greatly and has learned much from. So we found out what time to be there for the daily live bible study and after breakfast, headed on the 2.5 hour drive there.

We arrived with time to spare and were able to get to know some of the daily attendees as well as spend some time talking with the pastor, Rev. Arnold Murray as well as visit the bookshop and find these:
Day one of our weekend )

After dinner, it was back to the hotel and just relax with Flashdance and Grease 1 and 2 on tv and some reading for Joe and crochet for me!

Nation's name: Lietuvos Respublilka (Republic of Lithuania. Poland calls him "リト," which is "Liet.")
Capital: Vilnius
Language: Lithuanian
Birthday (Independence from Soviet Union): February 16th
National flower: Rue (personal note: its flower language is "regret")
Human name: Toris Laurinaitis
Height: Unknown
Age: 19 (appearance. The nation will celebrate the millennium in 2009)
-Exists as the eldest brother of the three Baltic states,
-Used to be a member of the Teutonic Knights, but established independence as the Kingdom of Lithuania after a rebellion against Christianity
-But was often pursued by German knights hoping to convert them into Christianity. (Note: Lithuania was the last pagan nation of Europe)
-After that, became a commonwealth with Poland and peacefully converted to Christianity.
-But was taken over by Russia after a fight over the annexation/partition of Poland.
-A good-natured person who likes to take care of people, and even though he has the Baltic attribute of being introverted, is the type who will take one into his heart when he gets used to that person.
-But, perhaps it is because of this sort of personality that he holds the infamous record of having the highest suicide rate of the world.
-Loves martial arts and literature. Also, his car is definitely a second-hand car. Is particular about taste, and is known to use many flavours of ketchup and mayonnaise in a day.
Ahh, sweet little Liet! Lithuania is a people-pleaser, and seemingly a bit of a doormat due to his unfortunate history with Russia. But Lithuania is quite a strong, loyal fellow! (And such a sweetie, ohmygod ;_;)

You know it was a successfully while night when someone needs to make a doctor's appointment afterwards to recover!

Today was rather quieter with more friends of [personal profile] lady_karelia  coming by for beef and greenbeen curry and naans. More wine. Managed to hem [personal profile] lady_karelia 's cloak which [personal profile] calypsobard pinned up for us yesterday. Crochet, and continuing on with the cheese making.

Now what could have led me to the Mall after we separated from archerpren? A desire to see Build-A-Bear in person and not just online. Hubby and I took a couple of wrong turns but other than that had an uneventful trip to the mall and found the shop.

Once there, I learned they are coming out with a Snow Owl on or around July 10th *grins*. However for now, I obtained Trevor :D
No, this is not dial up's friend here :D )

Outlaw Raceway photos later :D
