It feels like summertime. High temps, humidity and lots of mosquitoes! It feels like summertime, except that it still cools down enough to turn off the a/c at night.
We were up early Saturday morning for the garage sale. We had a pretty good sale and ended up making $281. The best part is I unloaded :) one set of china! One down, two to go!
Sweet Pea came over early in the morning to help with the garage sale. She loves greeting all the people. We were worried that she’d end up getting hit by a car with all the people coming and going. Al took her back home 3 times and 3 times she came right back.
The third time she came back, she brought her friend the Jack Russell Terrier, with her. Between the two of them, we were constantly having to worry about them getting run over. We knew she wasn’t going to stay home with all the company at our house. so we decided to try “plan B.”
We have two large animal cages. We managed to coax Sweet Pea into the larger one and quickly shut the door! She wasn’t real happy, but she behaved herself and was safe from getting hit by a car. Then we decided to try the rambunctious little Jack Russell. With a few bits of kitty food, she went right in and we locked the gate!
So now, we had two dogs trapped in cages in our garage. Of course we had to explain to everyone that we weren’t being cruel to these two dogs. We put a fan on them, so they were nice and cool. They were so cute in their little jail.
The owners of Bella, the Jack Russell came to get her later in the morning. They had heard we had their dog and appreciated us keeping her safe. One dog down, one to go :)
One reason we had hesitated about having garage sales at our house, is because we didn’t want people wandering around our property. Yesterday about 4:30 in the afternoon, we had someone else come for the garage sale. Our signs said the sale ended at 1 pm, but they ignored that. That wasn’t the worse though. Sometime after 8pm, we had another garage sale customer! This lady looked at Al’s big tool box and said she’d bring her husband back. Well he was working and didn’t get a chance to come back during the day, so they came by last night. They didn’t buy the tool box, but I think they’re coming back to get it. They are interested in a few of the larger tools and maybe even the wood splitter, so we can’t complain too much. But really….8 pm?
Today is another day and another garage sale. I’m really not optimistic that closing will go as scheduled on May 6th, but if it does, we will only have 3 more sales here at the house. We had way too much stuff and the guiltiest party is Al. I never dreamed he had so many tools!
Time to get moving!
