Recent photo I thought I would share. Hubby took photo so it's a bit blurry. 
By the way...almost all the books were taken in the sale. A lot of things were taken but she has so much stuff it didn't even make a dent. We are now looking for someone to take the stuff to an auction. If not that we do know someone that will come and just pack up everything and take it away. More on this later I guess.

Ready as I can be right now............

Just thought I would share a couple photos with you all. My hands are peeling from all the washing of glassware and nick-knacks. Tomorrow is finally the big sale day. Remember this is a very old house. My mother in law's father built this thing and she ended up with it. She passed at age 83. I haven't even started on the upstairs yet. This is just only a portion of everything that is set out. There is also lots of furniture. I am dead on my feet at this point and need a rest after this before I dive in again.

Update here:

I am elbows deep in cleaning out my mother-in-laws house. The water has been turned off to the place so I am hauling knickknacks and dishes back and forth to wash them. There were heavy smokers in there years ago and the nicotine has to be washed off everything that sat around. There is a community yard sale in the village coming up this month on the 18th. We are on the list so wish us luck in selling as much as we can to empty this house. I am guessing it will be several sales before all of it is gone. This woman collected stuff for years. She was eighty three when she passed and never threw anything out. I will enclose a picture when I get everything set up for the sale. Wish me luck.

Flooding in Texas............
One of my sisters in Texas sent me a picture of the flooding in Texas. They have gotten more than their share of rain and expecting more. This picture was taken while she was driving. Take a look at the water line on this mobile home in the background. This is the Brazos River and it has been in the news.
