Yesterday was one of those April days that as the weather proved today was a teaser. Yesterday, it was really beautiful -sunny skies, just right temperature -pleasant, just all around pleasant.
Today -a good bit on the chilly side, the raw kind of chilly and the forecast for tonight? Not very nice, I'm afraid -possible dusting of snow on the ground by morning. The good side though is the weather forecaster says that as soon as the sun pops up the snow will melt immediately.
Bring on the sunshine, please!
Days like yesterday makes me think about upcoming things that will be taking place soon. Spring, Summer and Fall here supports my daughter's most favorite pastime. (Hmmm -I thought that should be "pasttime" but spell-checker says no, pastime. Okay, so be it.
Always a bargain hunter, Mandy dearly loves -scans the newspapers daily for notices about these events and what will be available at them too. I like a good sale too but I tend to give a lot of interest over to the weekly online events at my favorite online craft store!
No, Mandy's big excitement is garage and yard sales! And she can generally spot a really good one too quite handily, even has some places ear-marked on her calendar planner because she knows this or that one always has lots and lots of great children's clothes in the next size up that the kids will need. Lots of toys too.
As a result of that, these two children here are some of the best-dressed in the whole doggone county! They also have a more than adequate supply of toys too thanks to those yard/garage sales along with Goodwill Stores, The Salvation Army, Consignment stores too, like Kid-to-Kid! Sure do hope the whole country doesn't go the same route as California has in that Goodwill and other places like that can no longer sell used kids clothing and toys because of the risk to lead or something like that. Gimme a break, will ya please, with all these crazy regulations!
So now, go see where you can find a good bargain or two.
