It has been a very long time since I blogged anything, and the words are not exactly flowing now. While the season has passed from summer to fall, it has seemed like my life has been on hold, a Groundhog Day cycle of working and watching Goldfish and being careful not to bump the nose of a dog who is no longer there when I reach down in the mornings to pull open my sock drawer. Chico was not just a good dog, he was the best dog.
In the picture above is Lacey, short for a very long papered name that has "Lace" in it somewhere. Tonight will be Lacey's second night in our home. The photo does not convey how tiny she is, just 13 pounds at 14 months old. She is also a good dog, and last night she slept in the living room with her long delicate nose quite safe from my early morning fumblings with my sock drawer.
I have sort of finished the fridge project as seen by the before and after above. I tore the built in shelving to the left of the pantry cupboard out and rebuilt it 6 inches thinner to accomodate the new fridge. All the new electrical and plumbing and drywall and painting to make that happen does not really show, which I guess is the whole point. I just need to cut down and reinstall the cupboard above the fridge, taking 6 inches off the height, and I'll be done. Goldfish's Mom is flying out for a visit in November, so I'll try to have that done before she gets here.
I turned another year older this month, so I threw a party and had a bunch of friends over. Not everyone has a fog machine at their birthday, but that is just how I roll. I hope getting a quick post out will prime the pump, and I can start blogging again, because there sure is an interesting island out there that deserves comment, and I need to pay closer attention. Cheers folks, and happy fall . . . . .
