Values I Hold So Dear

It was off to town this morning to get my meds and place a ad in the newspaper for my coming garage sale.. It will be Thursday of next week on the 22 nd... While picking up my meds they were offering the flu shots so I also recieved that again this year... The remains of this afternoon I will seek out more objects I will be willing to part with and price for the sale...
The elements I love and define what I consider my style will have to stay with me as I don't mind as I love almost all of them and my budget doesn't allow much spending...
With aging I have changed almost to the point of dramatic... I find only wishes for a peaceful, much, much more simpler , happier, life.. With the lessen in desires, I have found my life to be much more fulfilling.. Time taken to absorb the gentle breezes and the beauty that is all around me... to allow time to read a book that transports me to a different time and different places many times ... simples pleasures...
The pool crew is suppose to come this week with the cover for our new pool and the first year they will close it up for us... as they have to come and drill screws for fastening and stretching the new cover... The water is very cold and the crickets and leaves are making their way into the pool making it a real challenge to care for... The landscaping we choose to do was simple and is completed , except I would like to make a trip to select stone down by Toledo and pick up a few speciality rocks and one dramatic one for the one stone garden... The seeded area is shooting new grass and showing a bit of green.. Tom is however thinking of seeding it again to make it thicker... The time has come to winterize this wonderful part of our back yard and look forward to the spring opening...
I am off to search out a few more objects for pricing.. As I look about you can see the way I place things together I do truly love most of my belongings.. and do not have to have new or different.. It does become a state of mind...
As the weather report forecasts much cooler weather the next few days... for today it is just lovely and comforting to walk out on our acres and enjoy the calmness of the day.. These days and times are what truly matters and the values I hold so dear....

Sounds like you are doing just fine Marietta and glad to hear it, too. Yes, autumn is settling in gradually, although we've had a lovely sunny and quite warm day today. But spiders are already starting to make their webs and outdoor living will have to wait a couple of months I'm afraid! Hope you have a lovely day, take care, Ira

you have some beautiful things there Marietta for your sale. Wish I was able to come. If anything happens you do not sell the mirror frame with the 2 gals I would be interested.

Good luck and hope for no rain for you. We need it here.

Hugs
