Yesterday I spent the day at the county office as a writing consultant, giving feedback on the writing process in primary grades. It was fun and encouraging.
Harry and Suzanne came to the house after work to go through John's books, videos, dvd's, and cd's I didn't want to keep. They took home 4 boxes, which left me with only about 3 for the garage sale.
Sharon spent the night last night and we went to the Havana Relay for Life. I bought cookies from my neighbor, Judy's, tent and got a caretaker pin. They didn't have caretaker shirts this year, but I collect pins, so this was even better. Sharon got a pin for Mama, too.
The rain began around 10:30 p.m. When we got up this morning, it had stopped, and we went on with the garage sale set-up. We put it in the driveway this time to make it easier to pull in if it rained. IF....haha.....thunder, lightning, ladies shopping holding umbrellas. Sold the old lawn mower! Traffic stopped during the worst of the rain. We're going to do another garage sale in a few weeks and give it another try.
I wore one of John's favorite old t-shirts. This is he first garage sale in years that he hasn't been at. It was a year ago when we had the garage sale to get rid of his excess stuff right after we got married, and ended up taking him to the hospital that night to find he had air in his brain.
a nightmare weekend
Georgena and I walked around Edinburgh Thursday. 3.5 miles....hard in the heat, but not impossible. Need to do that a gazillion times more before heading to Glacier this summer.
