• Houston, We have lift off!

    ... or refrigeration, in my case.



    The GE fridge was delivered earlier than promised today which was a plus.  And it will be safe for storing food within 2-4 hours in the fridge and 4-6 hours in the freezer ... faster than I expected.  In fact it is making ice even as we speak.  It does everything the old? previous new one did - with the exception that this newer one actually keeps things cold!   Those are the up sides.

    The downside - and there is only one if you overlook the fact I had to buy a second new fridge in such a short time - the downside is that it is not white.  Yes, I know, I am a dinosaur, I like white appliances.  But to get white I would have had to wait an additional 3 weeks (ha!) AND pay full price.  The stainless models were on sale for 4th of July.  So I just accepted the inevitable and bought the stainless.  We will be replacing our stove and microwave in the next 12 months - so they will also be stainless.  And I am told by everyone ... property buyers want stainless appliances.

    So what are we doing for dinner tonight??   Delivery pizza.  There is no food in the house now until we shop tomorrow,  HOWEVER, tonight we will be able to refrigerate any leftovers, finally!!

    In case I sound too sour grapes about the color, I am not.  The fridge has been here for about 3 hours - the stainless is starting to grow on me!  See ... you can teach an old dog new tricks!

    And now this saga is OVER!  And the elevator in my building is repaired and working!!  And I have gotten no spam since changing up my blog!!!  AND lastly, I am getting better.  While all these things were going on I got sick with a fairly substantial chest and head cold, that I think I got from my darling little grand daughter.  She had a cold on my last visit and I cuddled her for about 4 hours.  You know how this goes ... child gets a cough - last a few days - grandmother catches the same bug - but going on 8 days and will linger for at least that much longer.  No problem.  The cuddle session was worth it.  Soon as I am well, I'll be back for more.

    Things are looking up!!
