Isn't Life "Grand?"

We had a lovely extended weekend.  It was really 'grand.'

Hope your weekend was full of good things.  Our refrigerator stopped working Thursday, and thankfully we had a dorm size fridge and a full freezer, so we moved everything to those, and Tim and I still were able to leave on Friday.  Now we have to see if we can repair this one (its about 16 years old) or if we should just buy a new one.  I looked this morning on a local website for a scratch and dent place and there are some nice fridges, so we'll see.

Tim is busy and I want to have this dealt with quickly, especially in this heat.  


  1. AWWWWWWWWW thank you for sharing the photos...beautiful.

    OH!!! I meant to email you! You were talking the other day/week about dark spots/circles. Guess what I have picked up last week and have noticed a major difference? Loreal Youth Code Dark Spot Correction. One week and wow!!! What a difference. The dr. told me, once a woman hits menopause, hormones change. Well, I had a complete Hysterectomy a couple of years ago---never dawned one me that so many changes (not good changes either) would happen. Of course, you know, that is taboo to talk about, gosh forbid anyone mentions these changes ---of course I am trying not to be sarcastic. ANYWAYS--it was $13-the product, I mean.

  2. They are all adorable and I see that they wore Grandpa out! Love the photo of you with the baby.

    Sorry about the fridge. When this happened to me a year ago or so, I was told to just get a new one since other parts would begin to wear out as well. Personally, I think appliances should live forever.

  3. Such sweet little faces (and adult ones, too). The best of times. Fridges (and other appliances) tend to go out at the most inconvenient times, don't they?

  4. Awwww....these are lovely photos. So glad you had a chance to visit. Sorry about the frig, hope you get it sorted quickly.

  5. ABSOLUTELY life is GRAND! What sweet pictures! I am happy that you were able to visit even with the fridge problems. Hope you find one! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
