yard sale flowers
My mom was in a great mood physically and mentally today. She wanted to go yard saling of course! Well, sometimes Thursdays are hit and miss for good sales, but we tried anyway. There was a yard sale down a long winding dirt road. I almost gave up trying to find it, then we hit pay dirt. A wonderful lady was paring back her amazing garden to make room for new growth. She had mounds of creeping myrtle, which is a wonderful ground cover and grows for even the blackest thumb. She dug up two mounds for me filling two bags. The price you ask? $2.00. I also got a nice sized red raspberry bush for $2.00. Mom got a hosta and an antique ladder/plant stand for $5.00. Since Mom was in a wheelchair, she asked about her cancer. When she heard the details, she was kind enough to give us a mint plant free of charge because she had read that mint plants were good for cancer patients. Some days really restore your faith in humanity.
My nickname is Deal Squirrel, due to the large number of deals I have "squirreled" around the house. My husband and I both work for Christian ministries. Every little bit helps to give more and build our future together. Find a great deal? Let me know by email at dealsquirrelblogger at gmail dot com.
