It is so quiet here right now. Here being home. My parents are finally back from a month long road trip and they invited Kiah and James over to play with their new puppy... a miniature dappled dachshund. Her name is Daisy and she is about the size of one of Mo's paws. Mo is their lab mix... he is BIG. Pictures are necessary for full comedic impact of that pair but they will be shown at another time.
Anyway, my other two lovelies are napping. I wore them out at the thrift stores this afternoon. My Love is home but also napping. He has kid duty tonight and so must be fully rested. I am working tonight. 5-10 doing something that will probably make me sore. I did not realize that making pizza was such a workout but I have come home after each shift very sore and exhausted. But being a mom I recover quickly.
Next week end I will be busy busy busy! I work 6-11 thurs, fri, and sat and I'm doing a yard sale. I LOVE having yard sales. Its a great way to get grown ups to come to my house. I usually have water or lemonade available and popsicles or lollipops to give to kids. What doesn't sell will most likely be going to the thrift stores where I can make regular visits to it until someone gives it a home.
I have completely enjoyed doing this last giveaway. Stuff like that is so fun for me. I'm a giver. When I'm out shopping around I see little trinkets (ok sometimes secondhand junk, lol) at thrift stores or garage sales that reminds me of someone, and I want to get it for them. Usually I refrain because, having done so before, I have found that the thought of getting stuff from the thrift store makes some of my pals naseous. I don't get that. I'm all into second hand stuff. I love thrift stores, garage sale, yard sales, *drool* ...
I thought I would do give aways a little more often... smaller ones, using some of the great finds I come upon. After my yard sale I will set aside any of the nicer stuff and do giveaways for it here. Hmmmm... I'm just wondering if it would work. It would sort of be like a thrift store but you don't pay, you just enter a drawing to win my junk. Would any of you be into that? Maybe in a new blog by itself. I'll have to work out the details... Free Stuff Friday is kinda catchy ;-)
I suppose that is enough rambling for one post and I want to hop in the shower before work.
OH! To all my giveaway winners I'll be going to the post office Mon or tues to ship your stuff. Thanks again for playing!
Robin, I got your email, we're good to go.
