Hello world --- well I hope the world is not looking at my very unexciting blogspot....I couldn't remember how to post anything so haven't written lately....first of all my computer was not working, so Mere andJames, bless their little hearts took it to Provo to try it out at their place. It didn't work there either, but yesterday after getting something fixed on it, they brought it back...Long story short, thanks to them and many calls to comcast by Mere, I now have my computer back. What has been happening???? Well, work, work,work.

Saturday I had the most unsuccessful garage sale of my life.....I will not be having any more of those at this house....It is just kind of hard to wind around and find our street...hardly anyone came and it was too much work for the results gained.

The last few weeks I have used Jerry's computer and put a few things on Ebay to sell. I decided that I could clean my house and make $$$ while I was at it. I put 86 items on Ebay...only 27 sold and 59 are still with me. Seems the odds are not too good, so I will have to reconsider doing Ebay sales....That means - "No more buying stuff at the thrift stores!!!!" is hard to resist, but I must curb my bad habit of buying things I don't need and can't sell on Ebay. It is amazing what does sell on Ebay. This is what I discovered....needlepoint (vintage) that went well, Ski sweaters die pretty well, Vita Mix blender did very well... Next time I am going to try some fabric...Oh I did sell 3 pieces of Nifty Nurse Fabric...

I will try to find some pictures and put them on for you to see.

The exciting news in our family is that Andrea, Mark and their 3 children will be moving to Peru. They are going to be gone from 3 to 5 years.... I can't believe it, but it will be fun to visit them in Peru. I think it will be a great experience....The next exciting news is that they are buying a house in Midway so that they can have Midway their headquarters when they come home for visits! I just went to the house they have chosen and picked apples growing on 2 different trees in their front yard.

Tomorrow I am having the lady felters over for a felting session. Most of them are making Nativities for Christmas. I am trying to make some too. I will try to post a picture of what they look like.

Wow, you have been busy. I can't imagine moving to another country to live. It will be exciting for them.

Good luck with Ebay. I have yet to explore using that.
