Totally Exhausted...It's a Good Thing



Another neighborhood yard sale and
"Bistro on the Porch"
has been put to rest.
We had a very busy weekend and
I am totally exhausted today.


While I have been baking and freezing for weeks
(LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new freezer),
final preparations the past few days have been intense.



While Nancy set up and manned the yard sale on Friday,


I spent most of the day in the kitchen.
The biggest job was making
homemade chicken salad sandwiches.
Eighty of them -- sold out by the way!


This was our fourth year for the Bistro on the Porch
and we pretty much have it down to an art.


We weren't quite sure what to expect this year.
Weather predictions on Saturday
were for 70% chance of thunderstorms.


Since most of the work had been done by then
we pretty much had to proceed and hope for the best.


We were ready for business by sunrise on Saturday morning.
Can you see the crowd heading our way?


We must be living right because...


except for a few early sprinkles,


the rain held off until the very end
and the crowds were great!


You can't really tell from this picture,
but it was taken within a half hour of the end
and it was POURING down rain.



Everything has now been put away,
back in order,
and another yearly event has
been put to bed!
Whew!
