Stewie and I took our walk and I noticed a pink flower that, at first, I thought was an invasive, non-native plant names loosestrife. As it turns out, this was not loosestrife, but another plant; I just don’t know what it is. The funny thing is, I know what loosestrife looks like and this looks nothing like it. It kind of looks like tall garden phlox but it has a less attractive stem and leaves, and the flowers are fewer. Colors are pink and white.
We did our walk early, I had awakened with what I would call, a bang, and then we went out. We passed by the Deerspring pool and since I saw steam rising in the forty-four degree weather, I realized that there had to be some water in it. I knew that the Sprayground was set to go but I did not realize that they had actually started the process of getting the pool going.
Saturday promises to be a yard-sale day, one that I do not feel particularly prepared for other than having pulled and yanked and dragged numerous things out of the crawlspace and placed them in the garage. Our Estate-sale son, Mikey, is coming over to set things up, this was his idea, and we are half-heartedly going into the event. My point is the same as Mary Kay’s…anything that we removed from the rafters in the garage (everything, lol) and from the crawlspace is somehow NOT finding its way back into a Koerner storage venue. Thus, anything not sold will find itself on the lawn near the street or in the garbage. The goal here is not even to get a lot of pocket change, it is to rid us of stuff we have kept for ages, thinking we might use it.
Even with the work we have done, there is much stored. The crawlspace has tons of Rubbermaid containers full of things. Frankly, we could easily stock a second-home kitchen, but I doubt that that is ever going to be a reality.
We came home, I got the coffee going, put the addresses on the Yard Sale signs MK purchased, and got a few things ready. The cars are on the street and breakfast is about to be had. This could be interesting.
Meanwhile, what the heck is that flower I spied growing like crazy in all of the fields by Deerspring’s steaming pool?
