hangin around

We've been here the last few days, but I've been uninspired to blog. Or, is it too tired to blog? hmmm. How can you be too tired to blog!

We had a garage sale on Saturday. Then, because we did well and the forecast looked good, we decided to continue it on Sunday. There was so much stuff in our basement that had been sitting for 4 years...it was time to clean out. My old dining room table & chairs, our unused home gym (what a beast) and several small pesky items went out the door. Toys, books, odds and ends. Gone for good, and what a feeling! All in all we did well. We made enough to pay for our new dryer and maybe a few nights at Dairy Queen before summer's end.

Guess what? I made brownies last night. Just because I'd been thinking of them and rereading what I wrote in my previous post about how good they smell when they're baking in the oven. Wonderful. My oldest son and I just came in the door from doing errands this morning and there is still a lingering smell of chocolate in the kitchen. ahhh. Can't beat it.

Cleaning out old stuff helps clean the soul, I'm convinced! Good for you, and YEAH for paying for the dryer!

Aren't brownies one of the top comfort foods of all time?? Why don't they make a plug-in called 'homemade brownies' ? I'd buy it!! : )

Congrats on the successful garage sale. Doesn't feel great to get rid of all the extra stuff that tends to clog up our homes? Less stuff and a DQ fund, sounds pretty win/win :0)

Enough to pay for your new dryer?! I'm impressed!

And for the record, "too tired to blog" IS a valid excuse. Rest up; we'll be here when you get back.

Hi, Beth, I found your link from another blog & I see we have a lot of the same blog friends listed as links.

I really enjoyed your before & after pics & will go back & look at more. I so enjoy doing projects & going to yardsales & thrifting. So much fun to make something old new again.

Stop by & see me sometime!

Garage sales are always good.
You can clean out stuff so you can buy more.
Brownies sound good.
Have a great day!
