Today is supposed to be whine-fest Wednesday but I've been in too good of a mood to do so. Instead, you're getting a mix of stuff that I've been wanting to talk about but have been putting off for other posts.

The hunt for a new refrigerator continues. We have to settle for a 22 cu ft instead of a 25 cu ft fridge because of our space constraints, but that's better than opening the door and having stuff fall on your feet, ice on the eggs, and water on just about everything. My landlord said that he'd pay to have a repairman come and look at our existing fridge, but that things older than dirt and I want a new one, heheh.

I'm also still on the hunt for someone to fix the window in my back door. Neither of the two places that said they'd look at it showed up. As they are the only two glass repair places in the phone book that do home and not auto glass, I'm not sure what my next step is going to be at this point. I might go and physically drag one of them home with me today. ;)

I finished reading Philippa Gregory's The Virgin's Lover on Monday. I really loved this book about Elizabeth I and her romance with Robert Dudley. The more I read of Gregory, the more I enjoy her writing style. The way she takes historical fact and tells a fictional story around it is great. Throughout the entire book I was wondering if she'd end it the way history did or if she'd create her own ending. I do the same thing when I'm watching The Tudors, heheh.

Yesterday, Jennifer S. sent me congratulatory flowers. She must have the fastest dialing finger in the west. I was surprised to get them so fast, lol. Here's a picture:

Aren't they pretty?


  1. Hey, those look pretty good.

  2. Those flowers are gorgeous!

    I've never read Gregory before but I usually pick up her books and thumb through them at the store. I might have to give one a go sometime. I also added the Tudors to my Netflix awhile back after you mentioned it. It looks really good.

  3. Yup. I'm totally enjoying the flowers.

    Pam~~You should give Gregory a go. I don't think you'll be disappointed.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
