Buyer Beware & Tree Down
Last week while at the antique store, on my duty day, a woman came in with "jadeite" to sell...hmmm, Since I was "first" person in, I could buy first. I didn't ask any questions. She said it was from her sisters collection who had passed on. She gave me a price, thinking it was REAL jadeite, I bought it, feeling a little "smart"...I went home and looked it up...ALL REPRODUCTION pieces, not so "smart"...LESSON LEARNED! Not the lady's fault, mine! I won't be buying any more glassware! (Unless it is for my collection!)
This is what "we" were doing this Sunday. Taking down this dying tree...it is WAY bigger than it looks in the photo...hubby was 2 stories up on a ladder cutting some big branches down before cutting it at the base. I was PRAYING!!!It came down perfectly! Thankful! It was 85 degrees on Sunday...perfect day to do yard work...LOL!!!
We will use some of it as firewood...hubby working on it today.
We let the little girl on the tree and she is "queen of the yard"! She is almost above out heads on the tree limb. The boy dog wasn't very sure about being up so high, so I couldn't get a good photo of him.
I LOVE Zumba. The music is a tad loud, but love sweating!! Going tonight. I'm trying to go 3 nights a week, not working out that way.
With this awesome weather, it isn't feeling like October, I hope it last until December and then it can snow!
