Sorry for the radio silence yesterday.  I was banned from the internet in order to get ready for our garage sale this weekend.  I can’t believe how much stuff we’ve (mostly I’ve) accumulated in three years.  The two of us moved in to this four bedroom house and couldn’t really tell that we were amassing too much.  Shameful!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – downsizing our house is such a blessing.  But lots of work right now!

What are your plans for the weekend?  Hope it’s a relaxing one for you – I’ll be trying to pack our belongings that we don’t need immediately  after the garage sale is over.  Here are some fun links to look at if you get the chance:
