Yard Sale!!!

What's a fellow to do w hen his parents have hauled all sorts of stuff over to Memere's house and are busy selling it off?

Well, he can always color.

And make cute faces at Memere when she brings out the camera!

At least he did better than these two, who spent a fair amount of time in baby jail:

"Hey cuz, what are you so happy about??"

So here's an abbreviated look at some of the layout today.

We had clothes.

We had lots of clothes, although not nearly as much as we've had other times.

There were tables full of stuff.

There were quilts on the fence. We even sold a couple of them!

The massage chair didn't sell. Maybe next time?

Yes, some of the leftovers have been held over for the "next sale." But most of the stuff has been moved on, turned loose on the world to find its uncertain fate.

Hey, it's out of my house, and that's the important element.

I made a rousing $42.50.

Well, I don't do it for the money. I might not have done it (I've just been donating stuff that I have decided to cull) but D3 really wanted to, and my house really is located extremely well for yard sales. D4 and D5 got into the act too. Then Friend Leigh joined in; she even made us some yummy taquitos and flautas for lunch. Mmmm, made from scratch, too. And refried beans, and rice, and guacamole...

So it was a day of camaraderie, and clearing out "stuff" and since the weather cooperated by being not TOO hot, I think a good time was had by all. Even the kitties, who spent the day in my room, seemed to enjoy themselves. I gave them an extra can this morning, so they spent the time in a food coma sunning themselves on my bed! (Their feeding station is in my bathroom, so they had food, water, litter box, scratchy pad, and my bed. Don't pity them!)

Now, if you'll excuse me, there's a bathtub upstairs that's calling my name.

Yard sales are so much fun. And forty-two bucks is nothing to sneeze at. That's yarn. Or fabric. Or both...

I can't believe how big those grandbabies are getting. Where does the time go? How is it that they can grow in mere minutes? Or is it just that my sense of time is getting all weird now that I'm old? ::sigh:: ;)
