City Wide Garage Sale Saturday !

I had a great day yesterday! It was our City wide garage sale day!! I don't need to go out and find stuff like I used to when Kelly was a little girl. I just like to get out and about!! Karen drove up at 9:00 and we were off to see what we could find!!
Nancy, my special needs daughter had told me "Find me Christmas things"!! I know they have some Christmas things out but usually large decorations she wouldn't care about. At the first place I hit the jack pot!!
Not before I scarred Karen!! She had given me money to have fun with and I had it in my slacks pocket and move it to my hand and then I am talking ( some would say Well, that's a stretch ) LOL I said I can't find my money!!! Karen looked where I had been standing and it wasn't there. She said, "Did you look in your pocket"? Yes! Yes! I have, it is not there!! I looked it my jacket and it was at the top almost falling out and I was so relived and happy! By the way Karen took the money like I might lose it!! LOL
The lady at this place had a box of ornaments that were just right for Nancy to sit and go through! She just Loved them!! They are so cute !
Karen stopped at a church where they were selling goodies and I had a brat and it was very good!! More garage sales and then at the top the hill where I lived when I was married, we went around the corner and I said I wonder if my friend Jackie is out going to garage sales this morning! Karen said ,"No she is having one!! I got out of the truck and would you believe a bunch of ladies from the church and prayer groups we all went to over 30 years ago were sitting in lawn chairs visiting and had put stuff in her garage sale!! They got another lawn chair for me and I sit and visited with my friends for quite a while and WOW what fun this was for me!! I think we all enjoyed this because we all have gone through a long winter and what a beautiful day and beautiful friends to be with!!
I felt so blessed to see every one!! Catching up on every one news it always fun!! I told them" Oh, I wish we had Karen's camera and I would take a picture and you all would be in my blog!"!! Then Karen said, No one is safe with Mom blogging!!!! I said, "You know my family tells me "MOM don't blog about that" !! In fact my daughter in Mexico has even said "Now,Mom that not for your blog!! By this time every one is laughing and teasing me!!
Karen took me out to Wal-Mart,out to her house and then home!!! In the evening we had our friend Linda over and she fixed supper for all of us!! It was so good!! All in all we had a great Saturday!!!

sounds like you had a great day. Man, wish you would've had a camera. I love to see pictures:)
I also love garage sales. I don't get to go to them as much any more,because here in town they have them Wed-Fridays and some on Saturdays. I just can't get out during the week with work.
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
God bless,

Sounds like you had a great day. I'm glad you had a chance to get out and spend some fun money. What a bonus to spend time with old friends.
I have some ornaments I'm going to be getting rid of, I could just send some to Nancy.

I am so glad you got out and about and had time to visit with your friends. That was delightful and I do wish you had taken your camera. I would have loved to have seen a photo of your lady friends all sitting and chatting in their lawn chairs.

I'm sure Nancy loved the Christmas decorations. That would have been fun for her sorting through them.

We haven't had too many garage sales here yet. It is still chilly out when there is a wind, but I'm going to check the newspaper for next week's sales. I'm always looking for good things at a fraction of the cost to help organize this place.

Take care. I'm so glad you had a wonderful day.


Denise said...

What a great day.. sounds like you had a great time,,,, I love City Wide garage sales.. We do that here every year and I look forward to it again this year... take care and have a great week...

I am over from Karen's Korner. It sounds like you had a wonderful day. Good friends and yard sales go together! I enjoyed reading your Blog.

Good Morning Grams,
I'm so glad you were able to get out and go to all the garage sales. I think there is going to be a City Wide Garage Sale in another town near us next month. I have never been to them before, but if I'm not busy when they do have it, I may go. I always love going to yard sales and seeing what everyone has. I bet Nancy was so glad to get those Christmas Ornaments. I'm sure glad you didn't lose your money. LOL. I guess Karen is going to have to start holding it for you. LOL. It's great that you got to spend some time with your friends as well. It is a chilly morning here. It is 43 degrees and it's suppose to get down to 39 degrees tonight. I had to turn our heat back on this morning. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

I simply LOVE GARAGE SALES!!! Especially if the whole town is having one!! I am so happy to hear that you had a great day!! I did too. I got out with my daughter and her two kids and went to an air show on Sunday!! I think I needed to get out just like you.
Thanks for praying for me. I am doing a lot better now.
Blessings, Sandy

Hi Grams,

You sure had a nice day at the Garage Sale! And finding some old friends was a bonus. And the Christmas things for Nancy was a good stroke of luck. I love garage sales. Around here they call them yard sales.

Have a great week!

We had our city wide Garage sale this week also. We didn't do one. I really don't like getting ready for them and I won't let Mike go to them any more,cause we just don't need any more stuff to move around. I am glad you enjoyed you outting though.I know it had to be fun to get out and see old friends.

I'm getting ready to down size my Christmas things after I get back from my trip...If you don't mind maybe I can give some of them to Nancy. Some I've had for over 30 yrs,but they never see the light of day any more.

Only 10 more days before I leave...Woo Hoo!!!

Love & {{Hugs}}

Glad you and Nancy were able to get out and about on Saturday. My community is getting ready for its big sale. I'm not going to be participating this year. I plan to just walk around and maybe find me some goodies.
