Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real

PrettyCream Cheese Pound Cake, Sliced Strawberries fresh from our berry patch, with a dollop of fresh cream, whipped with cocoa and lightly sweetened with sugar.

Happy – Color on my entry way wall! Grateful for a husband who spent the better part of his one week vacation spreading paint on the ceiling and walls of my front hall and entry way.

Funny – New form of exercise? Nope. Dani is just taking the opportunity of cleaning the sides and back of the fridge while it’s pulled out of its normal position. We short gals have to take advantage of all sorts of things to reach those hard-to-get-at places, and that includes standing on the kitchen counters.

Real – Did I mention that we’ve been without a dishwasher for the last couple of weeks or so? The fridge had to be moved, so the laminate flooring could come out, so that the old dishwasher could be removed. The “old” dishwasher was just slightly less than three years old! Is anyone else discovering that “they don’t make ’em like the used to”? Aaron has been a champ to wash the dishes by hand for the last two weeks, mostly  usually sometimes without complaining. We’re all thankful that the new dishwasher should be installed within the next 24 hours or so.

    I am so with you on “they don’t make ’em like they used to”! We have been having the same experience with our refrigerator. VERY frustrating!

  • tee hee hee…I was tickled about that rag in Copper’s pocket, too!!!

    those strawberries were definitely picture-worthy! what gorgeous color!!!

    there’s no room in our house for a dish washer. I’m thankful for Isaac’s caregiver who agreed to do them in her contract. 🙂

    loved this post!

    I’ll say it, too. That cake looks fabulous!! I also want to see the finished paint job.

  • That cake looks delicious! I think you’re right, they don’t make them like they used to. I look forward to seeing the entryway.

  • Hi Cheryl,
    That cake looks so yummy. I seen Dani on your Facebook page and she is beautiful. I am surprised there is not a line of young men a mile long at your door.
    We just got a new dishwasher. It is so quiet. I just love it.

    My inlaws have a 6 year old microwave..beautiful, stainless steel and cost a bundle. The plastic handle just broke off..unreal.

  • We have replaced 3 appliances in the last year and I am not really happy with any of them. They just don’t make ’em like they used to.!

  • That cake looks absolutely mouth-wateringly DELISH!

    I can’t wait to see your entry way when it’s finished. Love that red. 🙂
