Do to the pandemic I had not been to a yard sale in nearly two years.
It is hard to believe that it has been over two years since we all went into quarantine.
Things are slowly opening up and we are able to get back out and mingle with other humans.
I got to go to two yard sales TODAY and saw signs for several more this Saturday.
Now before the pandemic this wouldn't have been a big deal but after two years of avoiding human contact, it was amazing to see Yard sales in my neighborhood.
As I got out of my car just walking up to the yard sale brought up MANY happy memories of times gone by.
And just like the good old days as I looked at the items for sale it would trigger memories of people I knew that used to own one of those.
You don't have to buy the item to enjoy the treasured memories that the item brought up, it's free to enjoy.
I took my time looking at what was for sale perhaps longer than I should have but I did because it had been years since I had a Yard sale to enjoy.
I didn't buy anything but I sure had a good time just because someone finally was having a Yard sale.
Just a Mile down the road I saw another yard sale sign, of course I was going to stop by that one too.
Suddenly it felt like we were finally getting back a little bit like normalcy.
I saw a few more signs for Yard sales on Saturday as I drove around doing my errands.
It's been a tough time while we all have been living through a pandemic.
Things won't ever be quote normal again but our new normal is full of good times to be had.
I can't wait to go to the flea market next and enjoy the treasured memories that will Pop up for me to enjoy as I walk down to see all the items for sale.
Of course there is also the dream of finding that million dollar painting as I am looking through the items for sale.
We survived the quarantine, but now it's time to enjoy human contact again.
