To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven. - Johannes A. Gaertner
Hi folks, I was able to get one in full bloom! So beautiful, unbelievable colors! I don't think the owner has ever seen it in bloom, but she should be home next week, hope she gets to see it. It only stays about a day and then the bloom closes.
Since we are embarking on Thanksgiving thought I would write some things of which I am thankful for the next few posts.
Yesterday I had a yard sale. whew what a work out! I did make over $200 and I got rid of some things out of the house.
Some men in the neighborhood have been so helpful in pricing things for me so I won't get robbed! What do I know of what tools cost? They even helped getting the heavier things out of the shed, and one of them is barely able to walk!
One neighbor housed the hubbies motorbike in his yard so I would have more room for the yard sale. A couple others 'made' me put a sign on it so I could sell it!
One guy brought me a banana split! I joked to him I needed one, and low and behold he went and got one! He even bought blizzards for my daughter and my friend. I can't eat a whole banana split, but it sure tasted good!
My daughter rode her motorized bike about a mile to a little sandwich shop and got us iced tea and also my favorite clam chowder they have on Fridays.
My friend did most of the selling, did I tell ya I hate yard sales! Especially when people start dickering!
Hey, I bartered about one thing and a guy who does painting and power washing gave me some money for a carpet cleaner and threw in a power washing for my gutters and trim! (I had already done the house)
My knee is killing me today, but I did have a fun time talking with neighbors and friends that have been away for awhile, I also got to meet new neighbors, so guess I'll do it all over next year!
just one little thing I am not particularly grateful for, is my toe hurting like the dickens! I ran over it with my daughters motorized wheelchair while putting it away!
