I didn't mean to take such a long blogging break, but you all know how life just gets really busy with family and other things just don't get done, like new blog posts.
Thank you everyone who wrote or called and were concerned about my cyber-absence. :)
Saturday morning was the neighborhood yard sale in a big housing addition near us. I try to go every year. This year, my dad, son and 2 brothers came too.
The Lucky Ducks game was $3
My Grandsons and brother had a lot of fun with it and I think it will get played often.
Bead set $1.50 - it had been opened and the instructions are gone but I think most or all of the beads are still in it.
Clock for the craft -computer room 25 cents!
Gallon bucket full of wood geometric shapes $5 (the seller had 2 buckets, I only bought 1 and regret not buying both of them)
The wood shapes were played with by most all family - this is Grand daughter Andie with her 2 Great Uncles, my brothers. Yes, they are wearing leas. It was a birthday party. More on the 3 very fun parties that were 3 days in a row in the next post
I don't have photos of the other yard sale finds but one of my brothers is moving into a new home that is a lot bigger than his old home. He found 2 nice framed prints and I bought him a framed mirror that was just $2. I think my dad bought a coffee table type book about Harley Davidsons.
It is perfect for him and he got his a lot cheaper at the yard sale.
I have been cleaning out my home as well as my children cleaning out their homes. We had amassed a huge pile of cast offs. While I love shopping at yard sales, I dislike hosting yard sales. So my son arranged for a coworker with a pickup truck to come get that pile and haul it to a thrift store. It would of probably been more frugal to sell but certainly not more enjoyable.
