Yard sale is over, now back to normal?

Saturday, January 29, 2011

DD#2 spent the night at #1's house so they could keep an eye on the yard sale stuff in the yard. I got up at 5 and went over about 5:30, and the first customer showed up about 6:15, just as we were folding up the tarps. By 11 just about everything was gone, so we packed up what little remained and took to the local donation center. There was barely half a pick-up load, we were all pleased.

The grands came home with us and the oldest practiced with his bow and arrow (gotta get him a better bow) and the youngest played around till supper. It was a beautiful day and warm evening, so we had a treat and toasted some marshmallows before bath. After I put them to bed I got on the trainer and got 30 minutes riding in. They are now fast asleep (I'm not far behind).

Life is good.

  That's a long day! Hope you allowed yourself a marshmallow or two... I was going to send you a campfire, but they don't have one!

Another short ride and yard sale time.

Friday, January 28, 2011

We got out and rode before lunch today. It was cold and windy again, so we went slow and only rode about an hour. But it was nice to be out for the 3rd time this week.

After lunch we started moving things for the yard sale. It took two trips with car and the truck and trailer to get every thing, but we did. People started showing up as soon as we began to unload. So far we have sold most of the furniture, all the TVs, and the washer and dryer. And no haggling over prices, so all is good. Hopefully everything will go quickly tomorrow.

Life is good.

Great day!

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Slept in today, and it felt good. Put dinner in the crock pot, then we hopped on the road bike and got in a nice ride, 26 miles in 2 hours and 5 minutes. It was slow, but it was cool and very windy, so I'm not complaining. Ran some errands and got change for the yard sale, picked up the trailer to move the furniture to DDs house. SonIL came over and helped put our couch in the trailer and move MILs upstairs to make room to put DDs downstairs. I think they call that a fruit basket turnover? Then got all my boxes of things in the truck. Not enough room for the clothes so they will have to go in my car. Tomorrow we will pick up the furniture in DDs apartment and deliver everything. Lots of work left, but the end is in sight.

Life is good.

    I am so jealous that you can ride outside in January!

I spent an hour shovelling snow this afternoon. - And that is AFTER the neighbour blew out the driveway!

Good thing it counts as cardio.

    I donate everything. Much easier than doing a sale.

Getting ready for the yard sale

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Well, tomorrow it is supposed to be in the 40s, so we will get another ride in. That will be so nice! After we ride we will take the tables and one load of things to DD#1s house, then we will have to take the trailer over to DD#2s apartment and make sure everything is packed and ready for the yardsale Saturday. Friday she will be here to help load the trailer and take everything to DD#1s for the sale on Saturday. I have MIL's clothes and all my assorted household things ready to go. I will be so glad when this is over and all these boxes are out of my house. I'm taking the lazy way out and have things in boxes and will sell the whole box for one price. I just want everything gone to a new home. Lots of work still to do, but at least I'll get my exercise.

Life is good.

    So, do you have your yard sale in the garage, or out on the driveway/lawn this time of year? Sounds way too cold to me. Good luck with it all. And you are right; Life IS good. Hang in there.

    Have a great ride! I hope to get out too. Am still recovering from my cold but I should be able to get in a few miles. Hope your garage sale goes well and you will regain your space.

Back in the saddle again

Monday, January 24, 2011

and riding the mountain bike. It got up to 51 today, so we headed to the woods and rode 15 miles. Sure felt good to be riding outside and not on the trainer. Tomorrow the rain comes in, then Wed the snow. This weather sure is playing havoc with our riding. But on the brighter side, riding the trainer has served it's purpose. I rode the 15 miles and didn't get sore or overly tired. Looks like I'll be riding the trainer the rest of the week.

Life is good.

    Fantastic!! 15 miles that's great. Hard to do that inside as it gets quite boring looking at the walls or even a TV. I like to put on an action movie and then I just go crazy on the bike.

    Kuddos to you for cycling indoors! At least you have a little window of opportunity today - enjoy!

    Wow! Awesome. Doesn't it feel good to get out on that bike? I got in another ride yesterday but took today off. We will have dry weather for the next few days so hope to get more. It's been a really weird year weather wise and so I try to get out whenever I can. I love this mountain bike because I can go out even if it is raining a little bit.

Happy trails to you:)
