Awaiting warmer weather

Now that Winter has departed and Spring has arrived, I can’t wait for the warm days without rain.  I’ll be able to do more curbing and diving as the weather improves.  Just today, I was checking out craigslist and found that many people were putting items out.  I wasn’t feeling well, so I didn’t go out and get anything, but the thought of finding treasures that other people think of junk excites me!

This past winter was so slow for these activities that I’ve kinda gotten out of the groove.  I’ve taken to answering ads on craigslist for those giving things away.  I’ve gotten some cool things that way, but there’s something about rummaging through others unwanted items/trash that brings joy.  Can anyone relate?

Just today, I did get a free camcorder.  With all of the new technology, it seems like things like these are becoming almost extinct.  The camcorder takes mini tapes, but I like it.  Call me old school, but I don’t care for the newer digital video recorders that are surfacing on the market.  I don’t own a fancy cell phone with extrodinary video capabilities either.  With the upcoming birth of the new addition to my family quickly approaching, I thought this was the perfect item.

I also scored some baby clothes.  To my surprise, everything was brand new, with tags still attached.  This was also a great find, even though I didn’t obtain it the normal way.

Rain, rain, go away….and don’t come back!
