Oh, I'm just dreamin'
Okay it's time for a new.... You name it... the oven goes out, the garbage disposal gets stuck in the on position ~ must use breaker switch to turn on and off. I'm thankful for my loving husband who fixed this in a matter of days. Thank you sweetie. The stove has only two working elements, the coffee pot just quits, and now the dishwasher won't start.
The woman who lived here before me had our 1913 kitchen remodeled 13 years ago. Everything was brand spakin' new. The problem is that she ran a bakery from her home. She put miles and miles of wear and tear on these appliances. It is as if they are 35 years old rather than 13.
My wonderful husband bought and installed this lovely Maytag. It is so quiet we have to put our ear down next to it to see if is actually running. I love it.
See how pretty it is. I chose white, just because I'm a more warm and fuzzy person; nothing against you stainless-steel gals.
I must ask the question though, does having this old broken dishwasher sitting on the drive-way, and the fact that my husband learned to drive on a John Deere tractor make us "RED NECKS?" According to Jennifer over at Dust Bunny Hostage, we could be. We hope not! Actually the dishwasher was carted away in two days by the loving people at HOME DEPOT, thank you very much.
I do not want you to think I am not grateful for what I have, but I was visiting Home-depot the other day, and just dreamin'. A girl can dream can't she? I love these marble counter tops.
Wow, look at the size of this wonderful fridge with the freezer on the bottom!! I'm drooling.
Oh my goodness. Just look at the price of this double oven $$. Right now, I am limping along with my double oven, which I am very very grateful to own, but it is on its last bake. I mean it is on the blink and going out for it's last broil. Right now to set it on bake it takes five minutes. The digital reader is very touchy. I must handle the knob precisely for it to set at the correct temperature. I am thankful to have an oven that does work, it just takes a few minutes to get it going. That's all right for now. I'll let you know how it goes. Next, the wood floors are in terrible shape. They must be re-done.Again, I don't want to be ungrateful AT ALL, but I'm tired of the wood floor in the kitchen. The real me screams, "Checked floors like this.
And this... I've always been drawn to these checked floors in the kitchen. The movie "Driving Miss Daisy," has the cutest kitchen with these floors. I have hard wood beautiful cabinets, which
would love to be paired with these checked floors.
I'm just dreamin'. I'm truly thankful and happy with what I have. Thanks for coming along with me on my dream. " Many of the things I want are just that, wants. They are not true needs. I found this verse and it's a good reminder to me. "...do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable then they?" Matthew 6:25
