Busy Monday 114

We participated in the neighborhood garage sale on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.   Wheels tucked away the tools in the garage and Bytes laid plywood across  cabinets intended for the basement and the new master bath vanity — still awaiting install — to make tables.  I hauled up tote after tote from the basement where I’d been stashing things since last year’s sale.  And — no surprise — it was COLD, rainy and slow, but we still did well enough to make it worth our time.  The neighbor and I are going to have a “rinse and repeat” sale next month though.  It’s already been rain rinsed and we’ll repeat the opportunity for people to buy great gently used things.  LOL

Today — ah — today!!!    A beautiful, sunny day with just right temperatures and no deadlines!!!  Well, other than opening this fabulous party. . .
