|This estate sale, found right off Goodnight Ave. will be going on throughout the weekend.|
My youngest gets a bit annoyed with me when I tell him "Let's go treasure hunting!", and then finds out what I really meant was checking out the estate sale I spied down the block. As does my oldest, when asking, "what are we doing today?", and I respond "Dah-ling, today we shall go "sailing"", only to find out what I mean is doing a drive by the yard sale with all the signs hung everywhere around town. What can I say? Its that time of year again. Pueblo-ans love their bargains, and they love the quest and the stories that usually come with them (yes, I'll post mine at a later date, lol!). So come, enjoy the warm weather and join us in the luxe life - "Sailing" with a Sonic Happy Hour stop along the way!

The other day a visiting nephew was tinkering around the house with me. He came up to me and said "You have I love You's everywhere!" When I asked what he meant, he said he was referring to all the written "I Love You's" I have tucked, pinned, written or hanging up around the house. I explained that I guess I hadn't noticed how they added up, but they are just little notes from time to time, that we have written to each other, and that for some reason I tend to save and pin up the ones that say I love you on them. That its the simple little things that count in my book. He said that was neat, and we then moved on and continued tinkering about. But what he didn't know was that he soon made an "I Love You" for me to keep when he jumped at the chance to help me with the doors and porch. See, I know to most people they are just doors with twigs and flowers stuck in them. But, me and "T" know, they are one of those "little things" that make our souls smile. Thanks "T' for leaving me an "I love you" note. You did a wonderful job!

|One of two deer on the loose in Aberdeen.|
Our family, when we are out for drives in the mountains, has an on going bet to see who can spot the first signs of wildlife.
Well, today I win a dollar and it was in the middle of town!
This not so little guy and I literally almost ran into each other this morning. Out for my usual walk/jog (aka the "wog"), with music blaring through my headphones, I saw in the distance something running straight towards me!
I thought it was just one of the many dogs that barked at me along my route. It wasn't till I got closer that it's size startled me. At first I thought it was the Great Dane I had passed in the park, but then quickly realized it was even too big for a dog! I slowed, preparing to flee in the other direction when my eyes finally focused on this majestic looking deer.
I scared him too.
As soon as his eyes focused on me, (he probably wasn't wearing his glasses either),
he shot a sharp right to turn into a nearby driveway.
But then, curiously he stopped and just stood there looking at me.
I wondered why he stood there. Usually they get scared and run off. I sensed his hesitation to run. Was I the "Deer Whisperer"? No. I soon realized I was standing between him and his companion.
Right behind me was another creature as gorgeous and as large as he was.
...And there I was standing in the middle of the street, hardly containing my excitement, scrambling in my pockets for my camera, while frantically, yet quietly, trying to call attention to someone, anyone else, nearby to see.
I know these guys are seen frequently in this neighborhood, and are a dime a dozen around this state, but do you ever notice how excited most of get when we spot one and we have to shout out
"Look! A deer!"?
