My husband is the king of stopping on the side of the road and taking someone elses 'junk'. And recently, we've had some good finds.
One day, he came home with a door. The glass was broken but the door was in decent shape. Well, my husband didn't see an "old broken door". He saw a beautiful, sanded and stained, mahogany door. That is, when he's done with it.
Then Saturday, my parents called us and said the neighbors just put a basketball goal out by the road. Well, lo and behold, he doesn't only come home with an incredible basketball goal, but a couple of baseball contraptions as well. You know the ones where you can throw the ball at and it comes back to you?? Anyway, we enjoyed this awesome weather all weekend and we, yes, I included, "shot hoops" with my hubby all weekend. (I was NOT the athletic type when I was younger - actually, I've never played in any organized sport!) It was fun, I wasn't too shabby, it was a decent workout I may say. I was a little sore the next day. :-) I love soreness...seriously.
Leave it up to someone else's junk to turn into an AWESOME family day on the few days of 70 degree weather we got recently!
