Well, here's the newsy post promised earlier...now for the news! :)
My Family and I have been living in Georgia for 3 years and 4 days! Wow! It seems like yesterday since we moved here from Florida! I love Georgia though...the seasons are so beautiful. Florida is HOT and then cool for a while and then HOT again! Well, at least the part where we lived.
The yard sale was postponed to today due to Tropical Storm Fay sweeping through last week, when we originally planned to have it. I sold a lot of my jewelry and made quite a satisfactory amount of money...we got rid of a ton of clothes and books and ...junk! :) We were very pleased with the turnout of people ...there were many more than we expected.
This week I've basically just been preparing for the yard sale...but I managed to read through a GREAT BIG BOOK of every single Sherlock Holmes story that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ever wrote! I really like Sherlock Holmes...he's incredibly, amazingly, singularly smart!! I love the 'old English' the books are written in. But some of the cases I didn't enjoy due to the sometimes gruesome details....don't get me wrong, most of them are fine... but I would advise caution when browsing through the stories. Overall, though, I think that the books are worth reading.
AND, one last tidbit of news....I created a "True Friend Test"! You can see it on the sidebar over there on the upper right-hand corner. So far Madison and Lydia have taken it! It's really fun. I thought up the questions myself and some of them are quite humorous, in my humble opinion.
Thanks for all the comments on the last post...I appreciate everyone's opinions, and I am grateful that you took the time to leave me a note! :) I'll try to reciprocate! :)
Love and blessings,
