And The Winner Is...

It's Give Away Day!!! Hubby shook them up, and shook them up again, put it up so he couldn't look in the box while he was drawing the name and..........................The Winner Is:..."CRAFTGAL"!!! I'll be getting the book and necklace in the mail to her as soon I get the address... Congratulations!!!...This was fun!! I'll have to do it again soon!

  Besides doing the drawing this morning, hubby had his mind on something else today....Tag Sale! It's so early in the morning, and already he's in a frazzle! He's gathering all of the tag sale things into the living room, looking for tape (to use to put the signs up on street markers), talking about what he's going to get at the donut shop for the guys that are helping him take the things out of the house, etc...He's making me tired just looking at him! :-)) But as frazzled as he appears, he loves this kind of thing!!! I think now that he's been off work for 3 whole weeks he was just waiting for something big and confusing to sink his teeth into...taking care of my breakfast apparently wasn't challenging enough...Go Figure! LOL
  I almost don't want to show you what my living room looks like, but here goes! Every thing on this table...AND the table and in the tag sale today!...EXCEPT my red T.V.! That's not going anywhere!...Hey! What is it doing on that table?!!
  Then I have two lamps that used to be touch lamps, until I touched all of the 'touch' out of them!! LOL We had them re-wired a while back because I loved them so much. But now there is just nowhere to put them. I'm hoping someone else will want to love them like I did... *deep sigh*
  There's also some computer equipment that dates back to the time of the dinosaurs, I think! My girlfriend said she doesn't even think anybody would buy them for parts! LOL Well, I hope she's wrong. Maybe someone wants to buy them to use as decorative art!...Okay, so I'm still a bit delusional about my stuff!
Let's see...what else is in this mess...EH!...UM...wonderful tag sale?!
  As you can see, it's quite a lot of...stuff! And the part I'm showing you is only the tip of the iceberg! I also have a bunch of my crocheted blankets, a sofa bed, some dishware, a chair and ottoman, glasses, and some other stuff in there too! We might actually be able to see our way around our new home when we're finished!!! That is if all of this STUFF sells!!!....PLEASE SELL!!! I want to see if Jimmy Hoffa is buried in here! LOL Now, let me see...what is gonna fill up all of this empty space?! I know...LOVE!

Love Fills The Holes

Isn't  it wondrous,
this life that we live,
the holes we fill up
from the love that we give?

Even the hard times
make wonders abound,
because of the memories
of times safe and sound.

The good times, they come,
they fill us, they flow
and leave behind a smile,
like the hard rain's  rainbow.

So, its the love that keeps growing,
that adds wonder to life;
because no matter how peaceful,
or how full of strife,

Isn't  it wondrous,
this life that we live!
Cherish it always-
for the holes it will fill.
