Found a peanut, found a peanut, found a peanut just now...

So the estate auction is about a month away and we're getting things ready.  Among the things I', selling of the things I am selling is Mom's car - a 2006 Toyota Highlander, and today we started routing around in it getting it ready for the auction.  Poking around under the gear selector I found a bunch tapes and CD's, .75c and a half a peanut.  The CD's and the tapes are going into the auction. 

The peanut went into the trash, prompting my mother's voice to ring in my head and say "come the Revolution you'll be sorry that you threw that out!"

I'll take my chances.

I'm also selling the Kindle Dining Room suite that she always had.  That was a tough one to agree to sell.  Its gorgeous.  But we simply don't have room for it in our house.  I'm also selling her Erwin-Lambeth coffee table which will go for a fraction of its worth. 

My hope is that someone will buy that monster of a coffee table - its huge and needs to go to a house where they have a living room that can handle it.

The dining room furniture is another story.  I hope whoever buys it will love it as she did.

More as we get closer to the sale date.


  1. I don't envy the task... It must be difficult to part with the things that were some of your Mothers favourites.

    Emotions and memories do over the years get tied to objects that seem to take on their own character after a while.

    I just hope that they go to someone who will appreciate and love them just as much... as you and your Mum did...

  2. if you can, take photos of the coffee table
    & dining room set. i'm most curious, can't help it.

  3. That half a peanut could have fed one of my squirrels.
