Isn't Easter about surprises? I imagine a few people were not expecting the stone to be rolled away when they went to check Jesus' tomb. Though Easter really is about the resurrection of Jesus, it's not surprising to find plastic Easter eggs scattered on lawns on Easter weekend. My Easter surprises did not come in a plastic egg, however. The first surprise came when a visitor showed up at our gate Saturday wanting to know if our house was the one for sale.
"No," we replied. Yet our little cottage cabin interested the visitor who just happens to love cabins.
Surprise #2: A neighbor held a yard sale with a fridge and washer for sale - two things my cottage cabin could use.
Surprise #3: Mr. Fun and I were blessed with a new table and chairs - FREE!
I love surprises, especially exciting ones. I gardened this weekend and planted tomatoes, - and strawberries. My husband and I stopped by a yard sale Saturday where I noticed a strawberry clay pot. The day before I had purchased a strawberry plant at Lowe's. When I walked up to the pot, however, I saw string wrapped around the pot and other items. "Has someone already bought this?" I asked the gentleman.
"No," he said, "That's not for sale."
"But I want it. How much will you sell it to me for?"
I browsed a little more then approached the gentleman again about the strawberry pot. "I really want that pot, but I don't have $7.00."
"How much do you have?" he asked.
"Five dollars." He let me have it for $5.00! I was excited.
To top it off, I've started my raised bed garden. If you're interested in knowing more on how to begin a raised bed for your garden, read my kitchen blog on Wednesday.
It was a fun weekend, filled with outside work at the cottage cabin, but fun.
