We love long weekends around here. We love them even more when they involve a road trip. Road trips are a regular part of our life and we consider them a good opportunity to sort of blow the cobwebs out - change things up, explore something new and just have fun. Our dog loves them too.
There were properties to look at and, when you're looking at acreages for sale then you're bound to pass some good garage sales too. I found some metal chairs (4 for $5) that need a bit of fixing to be just what I've been looking for. W was given a bike frame to work on (just what he'd been looking for) and S got a box full of old glass insulators (probably 30 of them) for $5!!
There were eggs to be dyed.
There was chocolate to be found.
There were good meals with family and lots of visiting. And...there was a new-to-us free re-use "store". Do I even need to tell you how much I love this idea? I think I'll show you instead.
Plus some other outside things as well. Why doesn't every landfill/transfer station have a free store? Hope you had a lovely long weekend too.
