The boy's been begging me to let him set up a lemonade stand. He just flat wore me down, and since the weather had actually given us a break in the heat for today and I didn't have any lemonade, I sent the boy and girl outside with a box of veggies.
They made $6.30 in about two hours of sitting outside, eating dinner and marching around in circles. They would whoop and holler like crazies when they got a nickle or a dime and were so completely giddy that it made all of their "customers" laugh and smile along with them. The boy yelled, "This is AWESOME!" and the girl chimed in "Rock ON" as she flashed her devil horns and gave her best sneer. One woman and I were talking about the neighborhood when the girl walks up to her and says, "Here, take your tomato. You need to give me your money now." I was mortified, but the woman, who actually works for our vet's office, played right along. I was so happy for the kids and so grateful to the neighbors for stopping by. I need to remember to stop when I see kids selling lemonade or the like at the road side. It's such a simple thing and makes kids so happy.
The morning comes early, sweet gardening dreams.
