On a Country Road (Sale Updates)

While driving the back roads to Belvidere, I passed this grazing land with cows on it.  One cow decided to leave the rest to sit down to relax.  I loved how it looked just sitting there looking around. So, I got out of the car to take a picture.  The cow immediately got up and stood there as if he knew I was going to take his picture.  He just posed for me.  I loved how the picture came out.  I didn't mean to disturb him, but maybe he is used to getting his picture taken.

I love driving rural roads.  You never know what beautiful sights you will see.

My garage sale was a little slow.  The weather was cold and the people didn't seem to be buying or coming out for that matter.  Usually this time of year, sales should have been good.  I did sell things and at least I made some money.  Everything that didn't sell was donated to Savers in Crystal Lake. They give out punched cards for a discount on your next purchase with your donation.  They were also giving out wildflower seeds for Earth Day.  (My next garage sale will be in the fall.)

Upcoming rummage sales:  Thursday at 8am is the Presbyterian Church sale in Woodstock.  Friday at 7am is the Linn Church sale in Linn WI and at 9am is the St. Johns church sale in Woodstock.  The Crystal Lake library sale is this Saturday April 30.  The antique stores in Ridgefield IL will be having their garden antique open house on Friday-Sunday April 29-May 1.  

This is what I have on my calendar for May so far:  The stores on Pepper Road in Barrington and vendors are having their second market on May 7, Sandwich flea market in Sandwich IL is on May 8, Pecatonica flea market is on May 14-15, Elkhorn WI flea market is on May 15, Northwind Perennial Antique market in Burlington WI is on May 20-21, the Woodstock IL fair grounds will have a garage sale/market on May 21-22 and Cedarburg WI flea market is on May 29.

Lots of great sales coming up!!!!!  Happy treasure hunting.
