Big Red!

What a lucky day it was! No, not the A/C going out but what happened after words..... I have wanted a Kitchen aid mixer ever since my father-in-law "Jack" bought one when we all lived in Houston(20+ years ago). I had already purchased a differant brand so couldn't justify the money for the Kitchen-aid. I've worked extra hours this summer and decided to treat myself to a Kitchen-aid stand-mixer. The white one was on sale at Macy' for a really good price so I clicked the buy button! I had just received it the night before and had it on the kitchen table. Long story short, A/C went out, my A/C guy and friend came over and fixed it. We were sitting at my kitchen table and he asked who's mixer that was. Then he asked if I could return it. He had one "like" it at his house and if I came and got it, it was mine. I was thrilled to say the least. He was refurbishing it for a catering company, but before the parts got in they decided to go with an industrial mixer. He told me it was purple. After I cleaned the dust off of it to my surprise it is this pretty red, my favorite color!!!! Then I went to one of my fav web sights "" and for just over $50.00 got the accessories that a new one comes with.
Hum..... what should I whip up first?

Can I do this?

I have a lovely home but it needs some updating. I'm going to try and tackle the master bath! The vanity is cream color so I thought that I would sand the cabinet and stain it a dark brown, change out the faucets and lights and maybe even put a frame around the mirror. If this doesn't work I'll go to plan "B".....

the yellow pages!!!!

dream of a chandy with lots of bling!!!!!

Country decorating???? It went with the mauve paint!!!!!

One morning I went to open the drawer and the handle broke......

Hope you'll come with me on this adventure!

Tender Mercy's

I know Heavenly Father is mindful of my family. Right before Evan (the estranged husband) left, we started building a handicap bathroom for out son. The finishing touches have been left up to me to get done and with the help of some really good friends it is getting there. One of the things that we needed was a changing table. I have been looking at them on line. They, like all medical equipment are pricey! That the beginning of the week I made my to do list. Get a changing table was at the top of the list. I thought for the heck of it I will search the Craig for an exam table. Low and behold there it was!!!! Just like the one I had my eye on but a lot less. The posting was almost 30 days old and it said they would take the best offer. I called and offered $85.00 less than what he was asking and he excepted it and would be in the office the next day to help me load it into my van. That was wonderful but not the end to the story. Brendan, one of the RN's that worked on Sundays while going to school had quit to finish up in Feb. He came by to see how Kenneth were doing. I told him about the table and he said why don't I come tomorrow with my truck and help you get it. It has all worked out and the table has a new home and will be put to good use. Now we just need the shower wheelchair and we will be set!
