Garage Sale is over -Packing what's left begins

Spent all last week getting ready for our big garage sale on Friday and Saturday - where did all the stuff come from over the years? By the time we had everything pulled out from the basement, shed, boat house and garage it was was a scary pile - how in the world would we ever get rid of it all!
Friday morning we woke up to clear skies and sunshine, the temp got to close to 70 and we had a perfect day for the sale. Our good friends Don and Jess came over to help (they love garage sales anyway!!) and we don't know what we would have done without them because a sale it was! We had a great crowd and sold ton's of stuff - Friday night we wondered after a day like that, how would Saturday go? Saturday went very well too - just didn't sell the furniture that we wished would go but got rid of the shop and garage items and a lot of the small stuff that has spent the majority of it's life in boxes, closets or cupboards. We do have some left but can add it Ashely and Justin's sale next Saturday in Willmar. We've had sales there with them the last two years and things sell very well there too.
Anyway the worst is over.
Have a little over two weeks to get what we are keeping to storage and then we can kick back for a while.
Our weather seems to have come around a bit - Friday was perfect, a light shower Saturday morning early and around 70 for most of the day.
All the kids are coming over today for Mother's Day - they are bring salads and desert, we cooked a turkey that needed ojt get out of the freezer and will make hot turkey sandwiches.

Happy Mothers Day all you moms.
