It started on Saturday morning at 5:30am when I got up to get myself ready to go to a garage sale. Our township, was having a garage sale and I had booked a table inside back in February for $10. Turned out to be a lovely day weather wise but cool, so I am glad I paid the extra $5. There were 50 vendors and it was a great morning. I came back with very little and made $69, but more important got rid of
I got home around 1pm, had a bite to eat then popped into town to spend my $69 on gas/petrol for the car and my gas containers for the lawn tractor. Cost $80 but with Canadian Tire having a 10 x the CDN Tire $ I got $2.50 back in CDN Tire money.
Came back home and then dh took me into town to get some grocery shopping and run a couple other errands. As we were heading home dd was on the phone as they had seen a house and were wanting to put an offer in, but could we (mainly her dad though) come down and give it the once over to make sure they weren't making a mistake. So after unpacking the groceries we set off at 4:15pm to go to Pickering. Luckily the traffic was light and we got there by 5:30 pm.
It was 7pm by the time we left the house. I sat and talked to the real estate agent after looking around the place, while dh, dd and son-in-law, looked at the house in great detail. We had something to eat on the way home in Schomberg, at a great little place called Cross Roads Fish and Chips (serves a lot more than fish and chips) which is on Hwy 9 at the main lights. So it was 9pm when we finally got home.
I sat down had a glass of wine, which I know is very strange for me as I normally don't drink, but I saw a bottle of Jacob's Creek Moscato on sale in the LCBO and it is fizzy and is sweet, my kind of drink!!! My head just hit the bed and I was out for a count, but it had been a full and productive day.
Sunday I had a lay-in and didn't get up until 7:30 am which is late for me. Then I basically spent the whole day out in the garden, most of it cutting the grass. I am now pleased to say all the grass has been cut at least the once. That first cut especially in the field and on Kamikaze Hill is hard going as it had gotten so long. I want to concentrate on weeding and prepping the veggie patch this week, if the weather holds out.
So there you go a crazy busy weekend, oh and dd and son-in-law bought the house and got it for under asking price..................only because it needs a bit of work doing on it.................but to hear their excitement in their voices is such a blessing and a joy.
