A Bit of An Obsession

Do you know about CraigsList?? and, if so, do you just LOVE CraigsList?? I have to admit I have a mild obsession with this site (in case you don't know, it is, in essence, an on-line yard sale....or that is the best way I can describe it!) It is a great place to look for jobs and I know alot of employers are using it to list openings...but I personally am hooked on everyone else's "stuff" that is for sale - of, even better, listed for free! I just roam through and look for the one perfect treasure.

And, this past weekend, I found it! ROCKS!! Yea boy - all the rocks you want for free! And we have totally been needing rocks. Not huge boulders and not little skipping rocks but good size rocks to line the bottom of our fence in order to keep one certain, nosy poodle inside the fence! Rascal LOVES to be outside and the hotter the better so these past days have been wonderful for him. I would like to just let him out and be able to walk away but, sure enough, if something just interesting goes by on the other side of the fence, he is out! But, not anymore. We scored with free rocks from CraigsList - and Rascal is not getting out:)

Personally, I've just never been so excited over rocks! If you haven't checked it out, its fun...but, I'm tellin' ya, it can get addictive. I suppose I will take a break though as I will be away from the computer (for the most part) this week. I'm off to Florida to visit my daughter, son-in-law and sweet Riley. Riley turns TWO this week!! Remember the birthday party at Build-a-Bear with all those two year olds! I'll let you know how that goes:)

I didn't want to totally abandon the blog so I have some posts loaded to share with you during the week - some of my favorite things around the house - but I warn you, they are totally random. But I hope that you will keep checking back because there is an announcement later this week........

So, keep leaving those comments and I will do my best to be stopping by to say hello as well. Have a wonderful, sunny, week, my friends!

  6. Enjoy your trip to Florida. What fun to get to see Riley and go to her birthday party at Build A Bear. I have just recently started looking at Craig's List, but have not bought anything yet. Lots of fellow bloggers have found some wonderful treasures there. Have a great time on your trip. Praying for safe travels for you. Love & blessings from NC!
