Yard Sale Success!

This morning Country Boy and I peddled our wares, er, rather 'stuff 'n junk' as he calls it, at the local flea market.  The crowd was not large but there was a decent flow of people all morning and enough of the people that were there stopped at our table and purchased an item or two.  Some people bought a dozen items or more which pleased us greatly!  When all was said and done, we were happy with the amount of money our 'stuff 'n junk' brought in!  It was also enjoyable to sit and people watch!  There are a lot of interesting folks out there!

On our way to the market, we saw the most beautiful sunrise and I, of course, forgot my camera *sigh*.  Country Boy said I need to wear my camera like I wear my shoes!  In other words... I should always have my camera with me... *head hanging in shame*... I know!  It seems that the great shots are when I am camera-less.  Lesson learned (hopefully *smile*).  Maybe it's time I start making lists!  Then maybe I'll remember everything that I need when I walk out the door!   Hmmm.. now where did I put that list?!

After loading the remaining totes back in the house, we both sat at our computers to cool off!  (I broke down and turned the AC on before we left because I knew we would be hot when we got home and it's supposed to be a high of 94 degrees today.)  Country Boy is playing video games on the computer and I've been catching up on Facebook, email and my blogs that I read.  I did have to go back outside though, because I noticed that the bird bath was bone-dry when we got home.  I can't have my birds being without water to drink or splash around in!  After that, I took the camera out to get some shots of the Plumbago that is blooming.



























































I never notice a slight breeze when I'm outside until I'm trying to photographs flowers!  Then it's extremely noticeable as the flower bobs and sways in the breeze as I'm trying to capture its image!  I did manage to get a couple of shots though!

I'm off to figure out what to have for dinner.  (I'd like to celebrate by going to a seafood restaurant!  Hmmm, "Oh Babe"!)

I hope you are having a super Monday!

Till next time,

Congrats on the flea market success. Getting rid of clutter and making money = winning!

The plumbago photos are awesome. That is certainly a gorgeous shade of blue. :)

I am the exact same...I miss the best shots because I've left my camera behind! : )

That is one beautiful flower!! That is the prettiest shade of blue!

Congratulations on your yard sale success! Feels good to make some extra $$ + get rid of some 'stuff 'n junk' at the same time. LOL
