I joined a blog party for none other then blogging! lol
For the whole month of September I am going to be posting a blog every day.
This is going to be a huge challenge for me since records show I have only posted 2-3 times a month if at all. You can read more about the blog party and also join myself and others by clicking on the blog party picture to the right.
I might even be throwing a surprise or two throughout the month for my blog readers. So be sure to come visit and leave a comment or two through out the month.
Yesterday my mom went to the ER for trouble breathing and was later admitted. Several large size blood clots where found in both her lungs. She is on IV drips meds and we are now playing a waiting game with her body to see if the clots dissolve on their own.
Please keep her and our family in your thoughts and prayers that she is healed quickly.
Friday was a very long and stressful day being at the hospital with my mom, waiting for test results and not knowing what in the world was going on with her. Even though we went to bed very late this morning, Mr. P and I awoke early to head to a farm auction just down the road from us.
You have to understand this auction was not advertised except in a small local free paper. The house we are certain was built sometime in the 1800's. We also had been to a garage sale at that same house early this year and bought a wonderful old handmade trunk (which I will have to show you in a future posting). So we were excited to see all the other wonderful old items and see if there were any bargains to be had at the auction.
Saying Mr. P and I were sadly disappointed would be a understatement. Besides HUGE amounts of farm Tack, wagons, sleighs and 1 or 2 pieces of antique furniture (that went for way to much). All there was, was a bunch of Junk! I have bought plenty of junk in my past and made it look prim but this junk did not even have potential. I bought the very first item they auctioned off, which was a small wooden sleigh with white chippy paint. Mr. P bought a large mirror to hang above our fireplace. We spent a total of $16 and then went for lunch.
I did not get a picture of the mirror Mr. P bought, but I will once he hangs it.
Here is a picture of the sleigh I bought.
Here are a few pictures from the auction. The couple use to have lots of horses. Notice the three huge aisles of horse tack!
