Fantastic Friday…

Oh my, the garage sales, so many and I was worn out long before we found them all.  North Pekin alone was having a community sale of 40 or more homes.  My daughter and I went to several in town and then to quite a few in the community sale.  I got several books including 2 cookbooks put together by different groups.  I love that kind of cookbook.  It is my kind of cooking.  Lots of really nice Christmas trays and tins.  I do a lot of goodie giving at Christmas and I never ask for the container to be returned (unless it is one of my kids.)   Then we stopped for a bite to eat and then home.


Not a good picture taken from the inside of my car.

It was in the low 40s when we started out this morning.  It has climbed all of the way  up to58 degrees now.  Can you imagine garage saling on the first day of June wearing, jeans, sweatshirt and a winter coat?  Yep, that was me.  My daughter wasn’t dressed quite so winter like but then she is 20 years younger than me and healthier.  Winking smile

Three men ages 24, 23, and 19 were arrested for vandalizing my cemetery.  Just as I suspected they were not juveniles but adult drunks.    

My furnace wasn’t working this morning when I got up.  Maintenance came and fixed it while I was gone.  That is one good thing about renting.

I hope you all have a peaceful weekend.

Stay safe and be happy!!



  1. It's been quite a muggy day here today Beth. Great you enjoyed yourself at the garage sales lots of lovely goodies.
    Glad to hear they got hold of those Vandals.
    Hope the weather improves for you, that is pretty cool for June.Especially when you have to put the furnace on.
    Hugs Sheila and Wile-e xx

  2. It's going to be another odd year of weather. Glad you got out and did some garage sale's how fun!!

    I'm glad they caught the guys, what jerks!

    Yeah I'm glad they came and fixed it so fast! Have a great weekend!

  3. I love visiting the blogs that I follow...makes me know there are still normal, good people in the world....much unlike the news. I'm so glad you post everyday.....

  4. Dark damp day here and rain expected. Sounds like you had a good day garage sale-ing. :) I'm really glad they caught those guys!!

  5. Did you find any goodies at those sales? My daughter and I went today too but only got a couple of little things.

  6. I love going to yard sales! Such fun to treasure hunt! Wow your temps don't sound bad at all since it is 112 here in Phoenix today. Glad you had a nice time.

  7. I can't believe your cemetery was vandalized!! What is it with some people?!!

    Yard-sale-ing is FUN :)) Have a great weekend!


  8. At least the caught the people who vandalized the cemetery!!
    It's raining like crazy here in Md tonight.

  9. Sounds like you had a good time with the garage sales and got some good bargains. My Mom used to do a lot of holiday baking and making of trays of cookies and such to give to neighbors and friends.:)

  10. Pretty good haul there, especially the books.

    They may have been adults but they surely don't act like it.

  11. Sounds like a really fun day. Good. Have a good weekend too. Glad they caught the bad guys. BGB

  12. I can't get over how hot here equals cold there so much of the time. It's supposed to be nearly ninety today with violent weather in the afternoon...I'm going to be watching the sky. A couple years ago at this time we had a tornado and very large hail that ruined our garden for the year. I like your picture for the record, it shows just what's going on and the mailboxes there are a nice touch.

  13. We are enjoying a short break from the unusually warm spring weather we have had.

    You are fortunate to have a prompt maintenance team!
