Yard Sale

A few weeks ago our community had its biannual Yard Sale, in which dozens of families pulled out their folding tables and displayed their unwanted possessions in their front yards for all to see and bargain for. Happily we kids and Dad piled into our van that morning and meandered all over the neighborhood, coming home with many treasures cheaply obtained.

The spoils included:
  • A clock for Hark and the Golux
  • A bag of assorted ribbons
  • Eragon
  • A big sword. :D
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • A cookbook
  • A birdhouse kit
  • A Coke
  • Five candles
  • A chess set
  • Two books for Dad (something about the history of America, I believe...)
  • Pokemon cards
  • Pokemon toys
  • A wooden display case
  • A bug/amphibian cage

My personal purchases, shown above, are the marble chess set (handmade in Mexico, apparently. Sting still has not accepted my challenge to play a game with it...) the candles, and Alice In Wonderland. 'Twas a good day!

As many of you know, NaNoWriMo (shorthand for National Novel Writer's Month, in which a bunch of crazy writers all attempt to each write a 50,000 word novel in during the month of November) is approaching. Soon. As in, tommorrow. >_> Or on my part of the globe, in two hours. *excitement* This should be great fun.

Over and out,
