The last piece...

... of a renovated kitchen arrives today! We're in to the delivery window now for the new fridge, and that is the last thing we need to replace to have an entirely new kitchen. And we're home tonight to enjoy it! This kitchen renovation process has been so positive, and our real estate agent informs us that we've probably added about $30,000 to the value of our house as a result. Myabe I'll celebrate tonight by continuing my cookie project (see 'C' here!)

I was cleaning out the fridge last night, tossing ancient leftovers, and consolidating duplicate bottles of "stuff," when I opened the back door to empty the large garbage can we keep on the back porch. When I pulled the old bag out of the can, it revealed a wee tiny dead mouse at the bottom of the can. I am afraid of mice, and I had to go inside and shut the door before I could get my head straight to figure out what to do. Eventually, I did the logical thing, which was to dump the can in the snow. RIP Mousie. But despite the fear, and relief that I had not encountered him alive, I was sort of sad that he froze to death all by himself at the bottom of our garbage can. This is the part of the story where WH interjects and says, "Um, we're talking about rodents here, right?" Yes, yes we are.

Anyway, today is for waiting for the call that the fridge has arrived, and thinking about the little creature at the bottom of the garbage can.

And trying to reconcile myself to THIS!

You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!


UPDATE! Fridge has arrived, and they were able to get it in the door, and it fits the space between the cabinets, and all is good!

I can't wait until we can completely redo our kitchen. It would be nice if we could make it larger but I'll settle for new countertops and cabinets.

We have done new windows, floors, lights, and appliances. I LOVE my new range and fridge. It really is sad just how much I love those appliances.

ccw - new applicances are the BEST! Windows and lights are on our list, but pretty much for the whole house, not just the kitchen. It never ends in old houses, does it!
