A change of plans

We were going to have a garage sale today. We got everything together and set it up. We sat out for three hours, but only a few people came up. Even the traffic was a lot lighter than usual. We decided most people must be camping. We didn’t want to waste the rest of the day, so we packed up. Grabbing a friend we went out to lunch and then drove to the beach. Lake Michigan was misty and a little rainy. Yet, I found it beautiful. Many people were out taking their first sails.

Jeff’s brother called to say they were in town. They joined us at the beach. The kids laughed as they all went swinging. Then the nine kids hunted for fossils and shells.

We got a call from my mother-in-law saying they were going to the garden store near our house. Could they stop by? So they came over and Jeff’s brother’s family came over. The kids ran all over playing games outside, the men were attempting to fix my computer and I talked with my mother-in-law.

The day turned out to be a delightful change of plans.

I think we’ll try the garage sale on Memorial Day, right after the parade. The parade will be just a few blocks from our house. Lots of people will be traipsing by that day.
