Garage Sales

Here I am again over at Karen's house on a Friday evening!
I told you all that I wasn't going to the garage sales last Saturday. Karen came by for Nancy and me on Saturday morning. We went to a few sales and she stopped and got us some food and away we went again. My friend Cinda, was having a sale at her folks home. Her parents passed a aways a few years ago. Cinda gave Nancy some nice Christmas decorations and some Precious Moments figurines. She gave me some too that belong to her Mother. I treasure these
Cinda's Mom was one of my dear friend.
We stopped again at a church bake sale and Nancy was just buzzing! She had a hamburger and I had a hot dog! I don't think I am suppose to have them. I have lost 18 pounds!
On to some more sales and then stopped at a friends sale who I went to school with, back in the fifty's. They were having a bake sale with the VFW. Karen got us cookies there! When we got home, Kelly was home for lunch, she had to work Saturday! When she heard all the places we had stopped to get goodies at she just cracked up!!
You all didn't go to garage sales you went to all the bake sales!!! Well it just made Nancy so happy!!

I am sure praying Psalms 91 over my family in Mexico! My daughter, son-in law, 3 grandsons, two grand daughter in laws, and 4 great-grand children live down there. Karen had an E-mail from my grand-daughter and there is no hand sanitizer to be found any where.

I am sure hoping some time this month I get a computer!!!

I will be praying for your family's safety in Mexico.
I am jealous of your weight loss. I really have GOT to get some weight off.

Garage sales and Bake sales...nothing better than that on a Saturday! hehe So glad you were able to get out and enjoy these things:-) I can well imagine how much Nancy enjoyed herself as well!

My prayers are with your family in Mexico...it certainly is a worrying time with that Swine Flu going around. xoxo

I've not been here for a long long time, and was thinking about you, wondering if you had a computer yet. Now I see I've missed a few posts of yours....

Hope all is well with you and yours.

glad to hear things seem to be going well. It sounds like a fun morning to me. Bake sale calories don't count because you have to get in and out of a car. Sounds good to me.
