.. and I lived. Up at 4 am. Ugh. A bunch of eye drops, 3 sticks to get my IV in. Argh. My eye doctor is neat though, he calls me Terri. He did his thing and it's now 11:40 am and we got home by 9 am. My "new" eye is fuzzy but here I am.. like a true professional blogger.. (lol).. doing my thing.
Our new fridge was delivered and installed yesterday. It was fun to find that the ice-maker makes cute little cubes. Not much bigger than dice.
See how small they are?
I snapped a photo of the guys moving in the big fridge.
The inside.. I wish it would remain this spotless forever.
When we were clearing things off the old fridge we took down my precious spice cabinet. Right after we got married I asked my dear stepfather if he'd make me a spice cabinet and he did and sent it to me from Oregon to Louisiana. We married far away from home and friends and we did not get even one wedding present. So, this is special to me. I think I will put my collection of salt and pepper shakers in it. I gave it a good scrubbing.
My stepfather's real name was Max but when he met my mom he gave her a fake name, Danny French. She called him Frenchie. Then introduced him to all of us as Danny, which remained what we kids and grandkids called him. Turned out he was married when they met, but he fell for my mom, divorced his wife and married mom. How's that for a story? We all loved him. He was handsome, a cross between John Wayne and Paul Newman. He was great to me and my little sister, I was 15 and she was 12. The note he wrote on the back of this cabinet brings tears to my eyes.
I got my Christmas issue of Victoria and many happy moments yesterday slowly savoring the beautiful magazine.
Beautiful trees and homes.
This is a historic home on the San Francisco, CA peninsula.
Look at this amazing room.
It also has extensive gardens.
They have a tea each year to raise funds to care for the estate.
I love how they set the tables and show a delightful array of goodies.
Wouldn't you love to be a guest at this sumptuous table?
Well.. time to rest my new eye. At least now they will both work together. It was hard when I had one new lens and one old cataract one. Any fun plans for the weekend?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
