Well, the day went good but I am so very weary from being on my feet since 9:00am until 6:00pm. I was up until 4:00AM working on things, making Apple Crisp, Pumpkin dessert and Taco Soup. I thought I would attach the recipes, in case you might want to try them. My hubby had a whole pie by himself day before yesterday (just to "test" the recipe) and tonight he ate three more pieces! When I tried to give him some meatloaf tonight for supper he didn't eat another spoonful. He was such a blessing to me in this "Open House" endeavor. This morning, (in the rain) he put out signs, vacuumed the patio carpet, went to the bank for change, moved the cars then woke me up! (Then he took a well deserved nap) These recipes were from other people's blogs and in the rush I totally forgot to write down their locations. Sorry for the error but I will do better next time. The Taco Soup was from my precious daughter-in-love in 2006. I use it often and pray for her wonderful family each time I pull out the recipe.
Ladies started showing up exactly at 10:00AM and there was someone in and out all day long. A neighbor bought my lovely teddy bear and they bought my green twist bracelet too! Wooohooo! Lynn came from LynnsLovelies.blogspot.com and brought the most precious things! Little hats, booties, neck scarves, throws, and a picnic basket full of cookies to share. What a sweetheart! I wanted each one of them but monies are short for everyone but maybe someday I will get one of her treasures. She just "fit" in and I loved getting to know her better. I hope next week end will be busier for us both.
The things I thought would sell, didn't and things I didn't think would sell did. Funny how that works. I sold all but one of the cigar boxes and got an order for four more in HOT PINK! One of my neighbors came (Ivie) and said she has an all white tree with hot pink decorations! What a fun fun lady.
My very favorite thing about the day was having friends in my home just to visit with. Isn't the Lord wonderful to create the closeness of "Friends"?
By the way, did you know that you can right click on any of my pics and save it to your computer? Also did you know that there are other "pages" that you can click onto by going to my history for 2008? I am new at this blogging idea and I thought maybe there would be others out there who might not know all the "tips", like I do or didn't when I started. Have a blessed Sunday! I will not be going to church as I have a Bridal Open house and they wanted me to bring my jewelry. I sold my favorite bracelet, I had just finished and the cameo necklace was sold to a wonderful dear friend. Both of them were hard to let go but they are going to two wonderful homes.
