I have been putting off cleaning out my Potting Shed/Retail Sales space all summer. When Far Guy and I built it years ago, we built it in mind that it would someday serve as "My Garage." I do not have to share with Far Guy, he has his own Garage/Lumber yard/Wood-shop/Workshop..I think maybe he parked his pickup in there a time or two. I am looking forward to parking inside, my car won't get covered with a foot of snow , my windshield wipers won't be frozen in place by rain that turns to ice. I will no longer be the car that has so much snow on it's roof that people laugh and point. A snowy blizzard coming off the top of my car will no longer force the people driving behind me to turn their windshield wipers on. This alone should reward enough...so why have I been procrastinating?
Years of stuff, mainly garden and greenhouse related..with a few antiques sprinkled in. Cupboards to clear out and shelves to clean off.. about 20 watering cans to get rid off..I am giving them away! Yes, I put the ad in the paper and I will be have having a garage sale, this weekend. Since we live off the beaten path, I am not expecting a huge turnout, but hey I will have gone through the stuff, marked it for sale and can have another sale in the spring..after all it is a pretty good sized garage and I have a little car. I am finding "stuff" that I didn't remember I had, so it is an adventure of sorts.
Far Guy is getting a tad nervous, he even offered to bring down some boxes that I had marked "garage sale" three years ago. These are stored in a special storage area "upstairs" that you need a twenty foot ladder to get to. I know that this is just a diversion..more boxes to keep me busy so I will stay out of his garage. How much do you suppose I can get out of that extra Ferris Wheel Seat he has?:)
