Yard Sale





We had a yard sale last weekend and I have to say the signs were great. Hockney, Avedon, Katz, Kalman. Who wouldn't want to come? It was a great success and I love ridding ourselves of more and more-- especially now the times seem to call for thriftiness, handiness, resourcefulness, and paring down feels so nice.

On another note, the sun is finally out here (Chicago) and I will confess that I have been so enthusiastic about being outside that these posts may be a little erratic for the summer. The kids, the sun, Lake Michigan's beach (5 minutes away)-- all has me very happy. There's a song we listen to with the line "My arms are brown, I'm sleeping well at night...." Well, I have the summer bug something bad.

I am so sad I couldn't have picked up some of what I'm sure were amazing goodies. Loved the signs and the song...so why does England call? The hedge rows and the townhomes.

Oh, and feel free to send some clouds this way. Houston is a blister. Worst drought in a long time.
