Today, after driving two of my sons to work, I went to a community garage sale with my daughter. We wandered around the gated community in the sunshine, peering at items displayed on tables, chatting with friendly sellers.
Then I spotted a replacement Crock-Pot. I actually own two of these Crock-Pots but one of the lids shattered on my tile floor and the other lid lost its handle.
Anyway. The new-to-me Crock-Pot was five bucks. I could not be more thrilled.
Well, I could be more thrilled, because after buying a couple other things, I came across a lush desk chair sitting in someone’s driveway. “Are you selling the chair?” I called to the woman in the garage and she said, “Yes.” And that’s how I came to own a La-Z-Boy Horizon High Back Leather Executive Chair for twenty bucks. (Current retail price is . . . WHAT? I just looked it up . . . $829.00? How can this be?)
Anyway, it was an exciting day for me. A new-to-me Crockpot and a new-to-me desk chair.
Add a lunch with my husband and daughter, an afternoon nap and some time to read and it equals a fine Saturday indeed.
