A story for you...and more...

Well..I have posted a story for you all over on the collaborative blog I have called "Country Mouse/City Mouse"...see the left hand side bar and click on the little mouse will take you over to the blog that I create along with "the city mouse"..(smiles)
I think you all will enjoy this particular story.
And do feel free to link to the blog, and to share it with your friends.
Of course as you all know by now...the Garden Goose my "home base" blog..and it isn't going anywhere..I just am a gal that keeps busy with a few things here and there..
Well..shiver me timbers..but it has been COLD! here in North Florida..and it is supposed to get down near the mid 20's in a couple of days. My gracious I do not for the life of me know how you folks in the northern climates can handle the
cold. ..yes..I'm a Floridian through and through..and I tell you I wimp out when it drops below 50 around here.
I guess it is a good thing that my family and I have opted to stay in Florida after all for our home.
I am afraid I'd turn into a popsicle elsewhere..big wimp that I am.
I hope that everyone's new year is off to a nice productive, and happy start.
My... but I have been a wee bit busy around here as well.
I managed to enter the "Mind Wide Open" I found the time?....well..I managed to squeeze it in somehow....and I'm glad I did..I enjoy a nice art challenge from time to time.

Then I have been busy clearing out items from my house..yes..still!...and packing and cleaning/sorting things out in prep for getting the house on the market soon. does seem like this has taken a while..but..a lot of it is all packed now..and I am starting to see a much bigger light at the end of the tunnel.
And I've been gathering things together for a big garage sale.
I have to wait until the weather warms up a bit..I don't think folks would want to venture out into the cold and shiver their way through looking at all the items I have. So..hopefully soon we'll have a nice sunshiney Saturday coming up, and I can then gleefully greet all the garage sale folks with a smile(of course you know I I would much, much rather go to a garage sale ...any day..than to haggle prices with folks that quibble over paying a quarter versus a dime for something..ha)..but I'll of course put on my happy "customer service with a smile" face and "let the show begin"...real soon.
(did I ever tell you I was an actress in a former life?...haha...hee hee)(o.k...o.k...not really..but..that's beside the point)
Hey..anything to unpack this stuff and avoid moving it all..right??
I can put on a "happy saleslady" face for a day or two..surely I can.
Wanna come join me..I'll pay ya in cookies.(ahh darn...what's that you say????..oh... uh-huh..I hear'd rather go to garage sales too huh?...well..gee a whole lot of fun you are!!!) Gee......ahh well was worth a try.....enjoy garage saling...and don't forget to try to quibble over the quarter items...try to talk em' down to a dime you know.....ha.
I'll be having my garage sale here soon though..wish me luck please.
Oh..and if you have kids..join in the drawing's almost time to draw a few names out of the hat.
Thanks for stopping by..have a grand day!

Hi Tina....wish I could come to your 10 and 25 cent garage sale! :) I didn't know it ever got as cold as the 20s in's the kind of temps we are getting here in Arkansas right now.

Stay warm,

About that cold: it takes all kinds. I'm the kind that wimps out when it gets over 85 degrees; heat makes me slow and sluggish. And crabby, ask Wonderhubby. (Course here at a mile above sea level the sun is pretty durned strong, not that that's any excuse for being crabby. :D) Give me snow, however, and I make like the Energizer bunny. Snow makes me feel like a little kid. I adore an invigorating lungful of chill air. I do. Marvelous that this planet has climes for all kinds, eh?

Best wishes on your garage sale, I wish I could attend.
