It’s been another busy week – and the weekend’s not going to be any less so. Today I’m having a garage sale at a friend’s house. Wish me luck – I’m not a garage sale shopper, and I’ve never hosted one before. This should be interesting!
Here’s my week in a nutshell:
I started last Saturday off with a bang, hanging out with the AAA while he gave me a jump start. This is the fourth time in a year and a half that the AAA guy has paid me a visit. I’m thinking it may be time for a new ride.
I was ready to give up on my raspberry bushes. Three summers have come and gone with nary a berry produced. To my surprise and delight, the bushes are not only abundant with flowers (the prelude to berries), but have multiplied like crazy and are now taking over a huge space in my yard.
Every year my husband puts the flowers in our window boxes as a gift to me. It’s a gift I get to appreciate all summer long as I watch them grow.
The basement is nearly complete – now it’s just last minute touches and furniture to finish the job. After several months of having random men in my house at any given moment of the day, I’m thrilled we’re in the final stages.
I am also thrilled to be getting rid of all our baby/little kid stuff. We also have a ton of furniture, clothing, and other treasures that just don’t work for us any more. We started yesterday with a neighborhood preview and have sold a LOT of stuff – and it hasn’t even made a dent in what we have yet! All the money is going here and here, so I’m even more excited about hosting this sale.
Not much is better than ending on ice cream, right?
What were you up to this week?
