Weekend Update!

Maddy & Friend!!

For the past three weeks, I have been getting ready for our neighborhood garage sale on May 4 -- sorting stuff, marking things, making plans for all the $$$ I would be making!

You know what they say about the best made plans!?!!!

Yep, the sale was a bust!  Instead of throngs visiting and buying stuff, there were not many visitors and even fewer sales!!!!!! 
Arghh!!  What a bummer!! 
Of course, it turned out to be an extremely hot and humid day. 
What's with 90% humidity and 90+ temps on the first weekend in May???  
 One crabby lady told me I didn't plan my sale for a very good day!!!! 
Huh????  Well, I can't pre-order the weather, can I??  No water for her!!!!

What a day!!  Left me with extremely frizzy hair and ginormous headache!

But that was Saturday and Sunday, a heavenly cool front appeared and saved the weekend!

Maddy and I ran around a little -- taking more stuff to Goodwill and attempting to take some photos for one of Lisa's classes.  Lisa is a fabulous teacher and so patient, especially with me! 

Maddy and I had fun at our downtown Haymarket area and
she strummed away on her ukulele. 

The weekend was not so bad after all with my helpful girl and that sweet smiling face!
