Guess what I did last night!!!

Yup……bought a new fribbider……I bought the last one in May of 1988. Figured I was due a new one. The old one had leaked water and now I have a square foot of rotted floor to replace. Which means refinishing the old tongue and groove hardwood maple ain’t gonna happen in the kitchen.

Dammit.

I told Nick after every time I had to clean water up, that we needed a new fridge. Nope, he didn’t think we did. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I went from an 18.0 square foot Gibson to a 25.0 square foot Whirlpool. I’m LOVING it. It will take a bit of time to figure out and rearrange everything inside but hey……who cares?? My son will have more reno in my kitchen than I figured but the fridge will go with the house when I sell. So let’s do it up right.

Posting this photo below to show Jolie my dining room floor. Honey colored floor and the burnt orange walls make this room just GLOW in candle light. Had to do some rearranging to fit the fridge in here for now till son can do my floor so….. The 1949 Philco Entertainment center with the lamp on it is in the living room. My TV will be on it soon. The bookcase is now in my office as that’s where the fridge is for now.The black plant stand is now on the wall in my bathroom upstairs.

This photo is from NYE 2013…just 10 months before Nick and I got his cancer diagnosis. I remember he didn’t feel real well that night. But we had fun with several other couples joining us to ring in the new year….Little did we know…..

I love my house. I think it’s a bootiful old building that had its 100th birthday last year. My friend Holly is making it SO hard for me to sell it and move back to Minnesota but I must go. My oldest grandson already has a place picked out for me. I want to be closer to those kids. And I’m going to take lots of photos to recreate the rooms she’s done. I can’t thank her enough for all she’s done to make that house MINE.

I still can’t believe this room……Just look at my bedroom! It’s so hard to leave it in the morning to go anywhere let alone work!! I’m so comfortable and cozy and and and…….for the most part I am finding I sleep fine alone now. I think 99% of it is the comfort of this room. I just melt when I go to bed at night just like in the movies, I slide into bed on my hands with a smile on my face and go. … . ohhhhhhhh and land in a puddle of Booness….. I LOVE MY BEDROOM!!!

~And today I leave you to ponder this…..One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. ~ Dale Carnegie
