What's Been Happening

Well, seems like every weekend I intend to do a post and end up not doing one! So I am going to try my very best to post every weekend and catch up on what's happening!

I'll call it my Weekly Catch Up!

Anyway, on Mothers Day we took a little trip to the cemetery. They turned off all of their water spigots so to get water you have to stop at one of their watering stations, fill your little container and then carry it to the particular grave. We just needed to take a short walk to get some water for my mom's flowers and on the way we saw this gravestone

Surprised they allowed it because it's a Catholic cemetery.

Saw this little lady in Meijers parking lot. She nests there every year which is crazy because there is tons of traffic. She was gone the next time I went there so I don't know if she changed her mind or they removed her or maybe the ducklings hatched and she got them safely to a nearby creek!

They hired a new administrative assistant in the faculty office and she decorated her cubicle so pretty! I snuck in there early in the morning before she got there so I could take a picture of it!

I had a garage sale and got rid of a lot of stuff from my Dad's house and some of my stuff, too! I sold a Kenmore sewing machine that belonged to my grandmother on my dad's side of the family, I didn't use it much and it was just taking up space. I was asking $50 and some lady offered $40. I said yes and she was so excited she hugged me!

You can see the sewing machine in this picture. It included the seat which opened up with a bunch of accessories and the original manual. No wonder she hugged me! That's a great deal!

I'm glad it found a good home.

That's all for now.

Until next time...

Good to see what you have been up to! I have never seen a "partners" gravesite anywhere. I love walking through cemeteries and seeing the gravestones and wondering about people's lives! We have lots of ducks at the one I visit for my in-laws! Yes, that was a great deal on the sewing machine!! Lucky lady!

Good idea you had the garage sale.

I miss the ducks from my old neighborhood even though they travelled in the road at times. I'd get so upset when people would blow the horn at them. Sometimes, though, a nice person would park and sort of guide the across the road to the lake.

Wow - yes, I'm sure that lady was happy with her purchase. She got a great deal. I had my mom's sewing machine, and somehow it disappeared. I think Patti left it with a neighbor during those times when life was rough; and, now she doesn't want to re-claim it and that's okay.

No, I agree - never saw a partner's gravesite, but I suppose we shouldn't be surprised at anything, anymore.

The cemetery though reminds me I took some interesting pics a while back at a very old one intending to show on my blog. Maybe I'll do that today.

Always HAPPY to see you here, buddy.
