There is a house about two doors up from us that has been empty for about four years. Three years the homeowner was in a nursing home in Maryland. She died a year ago and this weekend was the weekend they had an estate sale. I have always thought an estate sale required an “estate” of some sort. Not a mansion with massive acreage, but things of value. A pair that apparently ‘handle” estate sales came into our neighborhood and held a two day sale. There were cars coming and going the past two days (and parking in front of our driveway) from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm. I did not bother to check it out. I had been in the house when she was living and there was nothing of value in it at that time. I did recognize her lawn mower, but they sold bottles of pain relievers and everything else. Is that what consitutes an estate these days? When I die are my leftover aspirin going to be put into the “estate sale”. Lord, help me.
So, that was my big excitement. That, plus the new stove. They have gotten so cheap. The grills are little round enameled thingies. The back came bent and the delivery guys called me out and asked me I would accept it. I went around the back and bent the stupid thing into place. They just grinned at me. At least the oven works. On Sunday I baked Grover some wheat germ/babyfood turkey cookies. He loves them and they are alot less expensive than the storeboughten ones. The oven is a tad less hot than the last one which could incinerate a 20 lb. turkey in less that 3.5 hours. It works and it’s installed and I’m happy.
I’m still knitting away on the Cosmo cardi, but I cast on for Peanut’s gift which has morphed about 4 or 5 times since I started planning 2 months ago. I’m nearly done with the other legwarmer of the first pair for Lil Bit. Nothing much to show. I did finally get a picture of my completed Lady Charles mitts. I wear them every morning walking the pup. I love them.
Oh, and that tail of yarn? I did actually cut it and weave it in;–)
And, to round out this Monday morning? My soundtrack today is “Riders on the Storm” by the Doors.
Have a good one!!
