A few things

Where is the love?

Dsc09875_2 Dsc09870

Here's proof that before we ever heard of blogs, we took pictures of ridiculous things.  This picture is taped on the cabinet door above the washer -- a constant reminder of when love was new.  Do you see?  I'm polishing the Maytag emblem, just like the Maytag Man.  (I have bangs!  I haven't had bangs in years!)  Alison is being very helpful with the prep for the inaugural load, and you can read so much in Katie's face, can't you?  "My parents are nuts.  I can't believe he's taking a picture of this.  It's a stupid washing machine.  He really is taking a picture.  I should smile."

Dsc09871Look what I found in the garden room the other day!  There are  two and they're just gorgeous.  There's also an African violet blooming in there, as well as a pretty, pink, hanging geranium, and a Gebera daisy shot out a flower recently.  It's a happy room right now.  ; )  It's full of jade plants and other succulents, all waiting to get outside!!

I'd better go get dressed and make some elbow room around the washer for the repairman.  Fingers crossed that it'll be fixed today.  Otherwise, much of this day will have to be spent at a laundromat.  Ugh.  The only good thing is that it'll all get done at once and I can spend my waiting time either a) knitting or b) reading.

Ah young love....too bad it never lasts. You look great...it's because of that big smile. Hope the washer is fixable.

You know, we were pretty excited when we purchased our first washer and dryer. I think it was because it felt like such a rite of passage after years of living in apartments and using quarters to do our laundry. We didn't take a picture of it though...but if I had a blog at the time, I think I would have, we were just "that" excited. I hope the washer feels better soon.

Yep, I think we all made the bangs mistake once. ;)

Maytag repairmen are NOT lonely! Good luck with yours today.
And I've got another one for "They don't make 'em like they used to." I went to the store yesterday for a piece of baseboard that was missing from our dining room. Don't ask. I had purchased the same baseboard ten years ago at the same store. The fellow there took one look at it and shook his head. "You won't find that. Somebody milled that by hand, we don't carry anything like that" He was very surprised when I told him that I had I fact bought it at this store, "off the rack' so to speak. When are we going to stop cutting corners on products I ask you?

So - silver lining with the knitting/reading thing. At least we had fun last night.

Fingers crossed for a successful repair job!
