Beaver Run Consignment Sale (Amish Run Auction)



Just a sneak peak - not sure how many pics I'll get tomorrow, since it's supposed to rain pretty hard!  The weather is having a definite effect on the sale already - there's a LOT less stuff over there than usual.  And you can guess why - 
 


This is Friday night.  The night before the sale, after two days with no rain.  Did I mention the weather is calling for heavy rains tomorrow?  I don't think they will be able to get most of this farm equipment out of here any time soon.  And the parking area - which is a field - already had cars stuck in it tonight. Before the rain tomorrow.  





See the empty space?  There's not usually any empty space at this sale.  The rows are pretty short, and filled with a lot of trusses and construction items, not nearly as much little stuff.  The antiques tent, which is shown here, doesn't have much in it either..  


Some of the quilts.  :-)  the pavilion with the quilts is full of chairs, people are finding spots out of the rain already tonight.


I know I'll end up going over for a bit tomorrow - even in the rain.  There are some bee hives I'll watch, a dresser I like for the boys room, and I'll watch the poultry and livestock...  although I'm hoping there isn't too much of that if the weather is going to be as bad as they are calling for.    I'll take my sons jeep..  that's the least likely to get stuck!

Replacing The Broken Glass on Our Patio Table -

We have horrible winds here.  One storm picked up our large patio table & smashed it sideways against the deck railing, shattering the glass top.
After looking at a couple of options, I bought a piece of plywood (they cut it to size for me even) and a remnant of linoleum from our local flooring store.
We should have sealed the plywood with an all weather paint first. 
Then we attached the linoleum with contact glue.  The entire project cost me about $35 and took minutes to complete. :-)

Homiletics Worksheet

One of my favorite seminars at BSF was on Homiletics.  I love the process of studying the bible through Homiletics.  Recently my friend Natalie taught our Sunday School class how to do homiletics, and again I found I really enjoyed the process, and I decided I wanted to use it more frequently.

There is a great "Crash Course In Homiletics" here - http://www.christinakline.com/homiletics-crash-course/
Earlier this summer our Pastors wife suggested, in our Womens Sunday School Class, that we choose one epistle and read it every day, for a month.  I love this bible reading plan.  I have used many plans over the years, and have read the bible cover to cover a few times now, so the idea of really learning one epistle at a time felt like a good next step for me.
For the month of August, I am reading Colossians every day.  It is only 4 chapters, a quick, easy read every morning.  I decided the 4 chapters made it perfect to use homiletics for my weekly study, doing one chapter each week…

How to Make a Chalkboard Graphic

I'm going to assume you already have a basic knowledge of some sort of graphics program.  Gimp is free.  I use Paint Shop Pro - because I have used it for many years, and I lack the attention span (& budget!) to keep up with photoshop.

This site has links to all of the fonts on the poster above http://colormemeg.com/2013/01/free-chalkboard-fonts-printable.html (most of my favorites are on her list, so I didn't see any sense in replicating it. Plus, she did it better than I would have.)
I personally recommend going to Dafont and d…
