We had a yard sale on Saturday morning. We didn't sell much. Kind of disappointing. But everything sold, is something that doesn't go back into the house. I had to clear out my sewing area so my son could move some stuff in. I put most everything into my bedroom, except for the table and the sewing machine.
It's a little cramped and messy, but I still have access to everything. I should have cleaned up before I took the picture, but didn't want you to get the wrong impression of me.
Saturday afternoon/evening we went to a pool party at the boss's. It was really nice. Great food! Good company! and the boys went swimming. No pictures, yet. All in all, a nice day, but quite exhausting.
Then today we put boxes back in the attic. We had them in a storage unit and at my #3 son's house. Now it's all back here and taking up lots and lots of space. I wish I could get rid of it but I can't, yet. Two of my boxes are the good china that I'll put out when we get a hutch; one box is some antique tea cups, again when we get the hutch I'll put those out. I think I have three boxes of pictures which I need to scan. That'll be a project for this winter. Then there is the box with the sweaters my grandmother made for my kids when they were little. I'm saving them for grandchildren... or I'll figure out something else to do with them. There's one box of mine with papers, which I will go through and shred, just haven't taken the time.
I don't mind keeping the camping equipment or the Christmas decorations, but all the other stuff drives me crazy. too much stuff.
I finished another quarter of the spiderman quilt. Just one more to go and the quilting will be done. hooray! Here's a picture of the back. (I think I might like the back better than the front!)
Then we decided to make some beef jerky. It needs to cook for 6 to 16 hours. This was taken at about 3.5 hours .. the house smells great!
and now to Monday ..
