I can't say I'm superstitious, but now perhaps I wonder.... We planned a yard sale for Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th. So let's start at the beginning....
Jerry and Kathleen had found this snake next to our house a couple days before. Let's just say if I would have found it you would have heard me screaming wherever you may live! LOL
We are going through a lot of our things to get ready for the yard sale and one of them was this bench I made for Hayley when she was little. I painted and stenciled it that is! ;-) So I was pretty sentimental in letting it go and had to take lots of pictures. Both girls have outgrown it.
The picture to the right is one Kathleen made of her and the Blue Heron that was stealing the fish from the pond. :-)
The same goes for a rocker that my former sister-in-law made for Hayley, also when she was younger and Kathleen has also recently outgrown.
Our garage was quite full of sale items to say the least!
The girls were pricing some items.
It has been so very dry here and we desperately need some rain to soak the ground so there isn't a need to mow right now. Kathleen however got the idea to pull up the weeds that managed to poke through in the yard, lol. She was determined! She didn't want them tickling people's feet and legs at the yard sale! LOL
Jerry was putting up tents for us and driving boxes down the driveway with his truck loaded with items.
Sadly....this is the last picture of his truck in good condition. Hence the Friday the 13th bad luck....
After Jerry had made another run up the driveway he put on the emergency brake like he always does and got out and had just grabbed another box to load in and the emergency brake gave way and his truck drove down the driveway into the neighbor's ditch and trees. :-( I am so very thankful no one was in the way when it happened. Jerry is devastated, as he has had this truck for 14 years. Of course it was paid for and this certainly is not the way he wanted to lose it. Insurance adjuster comes Monday or Tuesday but I'm pretty sure it's totaled :-(
We seriously have the best neighbor's ever....they were joking about needing to take out a few trees anyway...etc. They too were just thankful no one was hurt. It happened early in morning Friday so luckily the kids were not playing in the ditch like they usually are.
We still went through with the yard sale, we had planned it as extra money for vacation but now it will be going towards a new vehicle. Well a used one and hopefully insurance will cover a good portion of it.
So they brought their materials for selling snowballs!!
Caitlin was also helping us sort the clothes for sale.
We did really well and are thinking of doing another one soon before we donate it. We have a few charities looking for some clothes and stuffed animals.
We had to rent a vehicle for Jerry for work and the lady at Enterprise felt so bad for him she was sure to get him a truck to drive. We thought that was so nice of her! helps to ease the hurt a little bit driving in a new GMC Sonoma. It has a king cab so the girls and I were able to take a drive in it with him. :-)
So how was your weekend?? ;-)
