Saturday was "let's go garage sale-ing" day. It was fun. Most of the stuff we saw was total junk that even the Goodwill wouldn't want. My motto was beginning to be "One man's junk is one man's junk." But we managed to end the day with a boom box for the garage and a brand new picture frame. Oh, and let's not forget the piece of milk glass that Phil505 bought to add to his collection.
On the way home we stopped at a greenhouse and I got enough flowers to do three of my pots. I'm still waiting on the tulips to die off before I can plant the big raised bed. It felt good to get my hands in the dirt again.We also broke down and got a pizza. First time we've had pizza in a long time.
Monday we went for another long walk. There's a really great paved walking trail right behind our house. Well, behind our house and across a really busy road. And you have to walk out of and around the neighborhood to get to it, so it's not like it's easy access or anything. We've lived here two years and we've never been on it. . . until 8:30 Monday morning. I was always a little afraid of it. Isn't that stupid?
As we were coming around the loop on our block, we saw a little girl with her backpack heading toward the bus stop. I asked her if she knew there wasn't any school because it was Memorial Day and she started crying and told me her mom said to go to school. I told her again that there wasn't any school that day because all the schools were closed and she really started crying. I felt so bad for her. We could hear her all the way down the street. (Get a clue there, mom. Kids don't go to school on national holidays.) She wasn't there after the hour or so that it took us to get back, so I'm hoping her mother was finally able to wake up and smell the coffee.
Mix in a little yard work, garage organization, laundry, TV, and extremely sore feet, and you could say we had a lovely finish to our weekend. Now we're looking forward to the next national holiday. . . Phil505 and Wendy celebrate seven years of marital bliss followed the very next day with. . .Wendy's spectacular birthday extravaganza!
