I hope you don’t think it superficial of me to post a picture of my new fridge. If you saw the old one they hauled out of here today, with her broken door and rust spots coming through the finish-you would understand the enormity of such an event in this household. You see sitting next to my beautiful ginormous new stainless steel beauty of a fridge still sits my 3 burner only working 1970ish range. And my super short counters and old fashioned sink, a broken tile floor…the list goes on. But but let’s not take away from the wonderful fact that I have a new fridge! It is the start of my dream kitchen! The rest will come….hopefully soon…yes it will come if all goes well.
I was actually excited today to do my grocery shopping so that I could put all my new food in the appropriate compartments. (I will probably never feel that way again in my life) It is all good…
I am currently reading Oprah’s book selection. “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.” I am almost halfway through it and thoroughly enraptured in the characters and impressed at the ability of the author to weave this story together. I am not a lover of ALL dogs, I like a lot of dogs and LOVE all puppies of course, and LOVE my dog Molly. But even with her, we have an understanding of sorts. I am not overly affectionate with her, not like my kids are with her. But I am “The Pack Leader”, and she knows this. I am the walker, the feeder, the poop picker upper-she knows I am the boss and to prove her devotion she is right up my ass every time I turn around. (literally I trip over her) She loves me-and I love her.
But this book at times it told from the dog’s perspective and I haven’t been able to look at Molly the same since. I don’t want to give away too much because I highly recommend it! I can’t wait to see what happens!!
I wasn’t into jewelry creating today-I just ran out of hours in my day, what’s new?
I am looking forward to getting better with blogger. I was having trouble leaving comments on Rebecca’s journal….because I am an idiot!!! Lol Now to figure out music….
Night all…

help! How do I comment on journals with (atom) For instance Rebecca's journal? I can't seem to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. I feel stupid but oh well-no question is stupid right??? he he

Day After..

So I feel like I am halfway back to the beginning of learning the ins and outs of blogger. Things have changed since I use to blog and it is definitely different from aol blog. But I do think it is a bit easier than it use to be. I am having a bit of trouble at just making comments on others blogs which I am embarrassed to say. It used to just come up and be able to comment but now not so much? If anyone has some words of wisdom to offer-I would appreciate it!!!

So I have been a bit quiet about my opinion on who I wished to be our new president. My opinion does not quite mesh with the opinion of my husband-so I keep it to myself. But now-now that the election is over I am so happy to say I look forward to what our future brings with Barack Obama as our leader. I think he will be not only a man who makes history but a man who changes the consciousness of our country. I do believe this is a good time in our world-I am so happy to be a part of it.

Today I made a two very pretty pieces of jewelry. I made a bracelet for breast cancer awareness and a necklace with swarovski crystals and a focal pendant. I will take some pictures tomorrow and put them on here. The necklace will be the first item that I have to sell for over 50 dollars. I am nervous about this but the materials cost so much and it is beautiful and took me forever to make-getting the placement of the beads just right.

Today was a gorgeous day here in Maine. The temperature was well above 60. I did some yard work and then worked on jewlery and then we went out to dinner with the kids. It was nice to not have to cook! although my quesidia sucked!

Tomorrow my new fridge comes! Yea! This will be the first edition to my new kitchen. We had to buy this piece early due to that fact that Jack wanted to see how far the old fridges door could open. So now the door does not shut properly-ahhh what a bummer-I had to buy a new fridge! Sometimes Jack's destructiveness works in my favor-for once! I have tried to add a pic but it isn't working!! Yet another learning curve!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful night!! Thanks for reading....
