Rummage our way through Mother's Day

I'm a bit late on this, but I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing Mother's Day! Funnily enough, my poor mom's day was not as relaxing as she may have wanted, but we did have fun. AND made money!

We had been planning on having a rummage sale together to clear out some closets (and possibly make room for more junk!), but the weather was awful on Saturday, so we pushed it to Sunday. It's amazing how much stuff you can get rid of that you didn't even remember having. I can be a bit of a pack rat, but thankfully it's short lived, so after a time, I easily part with items that clutter my storage areas.

And since I'm a fan of providing everyone I know with reading material, my mom received a subscription to Cooking Light (she's trying to eat healthier and I love my own subscription) and a copy of Murder, She Wrote: Murder on Parade. I couldn't resist buying it. I have great memories of my mom and I watching that show when I was a kid. I still remember the theme music...

This weekend, I also picked up a copy of
Kathy Reichs' Déjá Dead. Her books are the basis for the TV show Bones, which I'm pretty new to watching, but am loving so far.

How was your weekend?

Bones is such a great show! I love it, but interestingly enough, I've never read any of Kathy Reichs' books. I should read at least one of them.

Ahh Murder she Wrote, such a lovely show. I really like Angela Lansbury :)

Hooray for rummage sales!

MissAttitude: I just started Deja Dead and I have to say that so far, it is SO different from the show! I'm kind of excited to see what they had to work with and what they came up with. Should be interesting.

I. Heart. Rummage. Sales. And since we have such a short summer here, I really have to pack them in whenever I can! I have an affinity for old glass. Weird since I'm so klutzy!
