Happy April

I just realized that it has been well over a month since I posted a blog. Just one of those things that I wanted to do, but didn't. Winter really took it's toll on my mental health. Just couldn't get up and do anything. I was very content to sit and read blogs and facebook and watch stupid tv. Hoping that the nicer weather that we should get will put me on the right track.

Lots going on at ginnysyard and I will post about it. Just not today, as this is a work day for me and that I must get up and do.

Hope you have a great day and not too many people play tricks on you!

Happy April Fool's Day.

Waiting on another storm

Hope all is well with everyone. Here in PA and many other places on the East coast we are waiting for another snowstorm. Anywhere from 12-18 inches is what the weather wieners are saying we could get. Les and I so have cabin fever that it has even rubbed off on to the cats, they were wild today, hissing, spitting, fighting they got it all in or should I say out today!

Thought I would share some February bits with you. These come from the Farmers Almanac.

Feb. 10th (a bit late) - When lunar gardening, the best time to start seeds for annuals and leafy vegetables is between the new and first quarter Moons. Anyone start their seeds yet?

Feb. 12th - St Eulalie Day. If the sun smiles on St. Eulalie's day, It is good for apples and cider they say. Sun was out here for a bit, maybe it helps the buds on the trees?

Feb. 14th - St.Valentine's Day. Hug your honey, it will help keep you warm.

Feb. 14th - Full Snow Moon. Sure hope it stops snowing by then so we can see the moon. Also, Snowdrop flowers may bloom this month, even through the snow. Don't bring them into the house as cut flowers, as it is considered bad luck. With all the cold weather , frozen ground, ice and snow if the little snowdrops will poke their heads up?

And some very special news that I can finally share with you, Les will be starting Auctioneers School in March. This is something that he has thought long and hard about and decided that it was now or never. I will keep you posted on his progress.

Have a good evening, stay safe if you need to travel in the East over the next few days.

Mid January

Good Evening Everyone!

It's already January 15th and I have not wished all of my friends a very Happy New Year. My last post was about our antiques show in November and then I think I went to sleep, lol.

What we thought was going to be a kick back and chill December turned out just the opposite. We worked three weekends with our auctioneer in additional to our regular Tuesday auctions of which some were cancelled thus having to pick-up Saturday/Sunday work.

We were also expecting family/friend to come for Christmas/New Year's visit but that did not happen which I do have to say weather played a part in that.

And then the Wednesday before Christmas my last duck past away. This hit me like a ton of bricks. I raised ducks from day one of moving to Pennsylvania way back in February of 1988. I am getting better, but I do forget and say to my self  "oh I need to go check on the duck".

So, now we are in mid January and stuff is happening which I will save for another post, that way I won't be at a lost for words and not blog, like that would ever happen.

Have a good evening and if you have a clear sky, go check out that Full Wolf Moon.

Happy December

Hope all of you are doing well and not stressing yourselves out, Ha Ha. Yes, we all do it no matter what we tell ourselves.

Our antiques show last weekend was a hit, best one that we have had at this venue. Now its time to get ready for the next one which is in early March, never too early to start buying those treasures that our wonderful customer's are looking for.

I have not started to decorate yet :-(  around the house so I thought that maybe I would start with my blog and that will get me started.

Have a wonderful and festive weekend no matter what you do. Just take care of yourself.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing all of my friends near and far, a Happy Thanksgiving.

Here are some pictures from around Ginnysyard. We are getting ready for a antiques show this weekend. This is one of our favorites. Wish us luck, taking lots of different stuff, furniture, textiles, advertising, industrial.

Have a great weekend everyone.

My little girl.

Our pond with a dusting of snow on Tuesday morning. And yes that is a thin layer of ice under the snow.

First day of October, the beginning of the last quarter for the year of 2013. Where does it go?

I surely don't have the answer! It seems like it was just Labor Day. I guess the saying "Time flys when you are having fun", really is true.

Les and I have been busy, busy with working for the auctioneers, which is our FUN, lol.

Enjoy your day friends.

Hey It's Friday

Hopefully many have the day off today, but I know my retail gals are hard at work and for them I wish big dollar sales today, lol.

I was back outside this morning pulling more weeds and cutting back stuff, where does it all come from. My yard is in serious trouble, with all the rain that we have been having and then if its not raining we are usually working. So, now I am left with a big mess, too embrassed to show before pictures but maybe some after pictures we will see.

I have errands to run today, so I need to step it up. Have a wonderful day my friends.
