when things get too quiet

I love a good yard sale. I like getting a peek at what people have stashed in their attic or basement. I've been to some pretty shabby ones in this neighborhood,and also noticed the phenomenon of the perpetual yard sale, where people just leave the same stuff on their porch or in their yard and try to sell it week after week. This past weekend renewed my faith. With Naya strapped to my chest I set out to have a look. I rummaged threw boxes with old cameras, Christmas ornaments, tools and toys. As I glanced up from admiring the pictures in a stack of Life magazines from the sixties, I noticed the man having the sale seemed pleased as Juden and Ella curiously explored all the trinkets that probably used to be his own kids. He smiled at Ella's squeals of delight as she squeezed a white plush cat. He was incredibly generous and gave the kids some things for free. And check out what else I scored there.
Five bucks people...I have always wanted to play. I may not have a lot of time right now but I'm looking forward to Josh getting me started. Besides how could I pass that up?

And I got these great stamps which will be awesome for making cards and scrap booking.
We also got some cool new craft supplies for Juden and when things got just a little too quiet here's where I found them...


Naya became the art project without even a single protest!
