Mothers Day

 Happy Mothers Day

I hope you can celebrate having one, being one, 

remembering one, or loving one. 

I was fortunate to have my kids drive in 

to help me with the long awaited garage sale Saturday.

I have helped with dozens of friends and clients sales,

 and held dozens of my own, and 

believe me the thrill is gone.

 I've been purging forever it seems.

Of course the weather turned hot, and we were only open 

from 7:30 - 2:00, but still 

I made what I needed to replace a long built in broken microwave,

and treat myself to a fun new item for the backyard.

I still had a nice bit of money left over so it's a win!

The sacrificing a weekend to deal with an awful thing 

like these sales, well was just the best present ever from Ben and Hannah. 

They also cleared out a hidden side yard of accumulated debris

which also made me sooo happy. 

Toward the end I always slash prices and fill boxes with 

free stuff - everyone loves that, so nearly all sold.

I have just a few boxes in my car to donate, and a small pile of good things,

mostly kitchen items, that will just go back on now empty shelves. 

I won't "need" them so I purged, but I will still use them eventually.

Right at the close of sale, UPS showed up and in a fast five minutes 

I took these tired bones and tried out my new.....


Walter checked it out and eventually hopped in also.

Not sure where I will place in the yard just yet.

This was very affordable, and the hammock

removes from frame in seconds so 

I can store inside on the porch, keeping it clean.

 The frame will knock down in five, and everything stores

in a carry bag.

I "hung" out for an hour while the kids talked, and listened to 
music and I could have easily dozed off, very comfortable.

Enjoy your day.

Happy Mother's Day Z.... I'm so glad that you got the sale over with (successfully it sounds), will have a working handle on your micro, and enjoyed some time with Ben and Hannah. That hammock looks awesome. I had bought one somewhat similar (I think) for my husband years ago but it was only out a handful of times. With our winds, it had to be taken down after each use basically and that was too much effort for the giftee. It still probably lurks somewhere in my garage. (Are Hannah and Ben free next weekend?? 😂) Did the Garden Harvest bowl sell or was it returned to the shelf?? ~Robin~

Happy Mother's Day!

Your blog posts aren't showing in my email. I put your blog in my daily blog bookmark folder.

The Hammock and sale! Congratulations! It is a beauty, safe looking, and easy to set up. Consider mosquito net hat for dozing off.
I'd fall asleep in in hammock heartbeat. I have
the net hat and plain head style nets. One I keep in my car. Years ago bees swarmed a whole block area until a beekeepercame, found queen location, and took them to their new home. It was bizarre so many bees flying around.
