Fall is Here

The day began with a chill wind blowing through the flat Illinois fields. The sun began its arduous climb to the apex in the sky. The Baillio family awoke and started picking up their belongings. Having finished rounding up the lost and forgotten articles of the house like wayward sheep, they walked outside to face their destiny...

GARAGE SALE!


We had a community-wide garage sale today at Winfield village and we tried to get in on that goodness. We set out some clothes that we didn't need anymore, including some of Brooklyn's old, or out-of-season stuff, and our old computer desk. We sat out for about 2 1/2 hours, with little luck. Our biggest sale was the desk which sold at the very end for a measly $20. I wanted a bit more, but it was better than nothing, and we didn't need it anymore. So that was great. Celeste sold some of Brooklyn's clothes and made about $3, but then she turned around and spent $2.50 on a gate and other sundry items. It was such a beautiful day with that crisp wind blowing and the sun shining. It was a great morning and great intro to a fun weekend.
