We all have those days
when things don't go as planned
And this has been one
Early morning spent setting up a lovely garage sale
to make room for the treasures that are yet to be found.
Signs posted, change ready, coffee made, and now we wait.
Winds pick up
big gusts now - blowing down the signs (unknown to me).
Neighbors come to checks things out, bringing fresh beans and cukes,
putting my signs back up before coming up the lane to visit.
Rain starts - ducks are happy
I don't have to water the new fruit trees and flowers in the field
Nor sweep the driveway as winds have taken care of that.
People continue to stop by and chat
we now have a "coffee clutch" table going.
Being new to the area, it's nice to hear what is going on locally.
Idle chatter, lots of laughs and introductions
and a few good sales along the way.
Rains are coming harder and wind is stronger.
Garage sale will be continued to another day.
The best comment of the day came from a total stranger,
who commented on this flower in the garden, saying,
"Look - it's not perfect, like us, but is beautiful in its own way."
How nice and how true.
