*monday musing

* do you see what I woke up to Saturday morning? Rain. Yes, RAIN! I was beside myself.... ok, what exactly does that mean? Must find out.
* WikiAnswers says- Speechless with bewilderment. Dumbfounded with a tad bit of shock.
Oh ya, that would be me Sat.. I was beside myself.
* good news, we'll be getting a new kitchen. Even better news, we don't have to start the kitchen remodel till after the holidays. Yeh!
* spending an inordinate amount of time looking at kitchens online.
* embarrassed to admit that one of the wall units they tore down held a bazillion magazines... some that date back to the 90's. I know. Because they were stacked, only the bottom few got wet. So I've been slowly tossing them all week... but not before checking out any possible kitchen designs. Bye beloved magazines.
* my son Shawn inherited my love of magazines. Sorry Nicole.
* the flood has forced me to take note of all my stuff. Must weed out stuff.

* uncovered this large metal cooler with spout in the garage, that I thrifted years ago for a dollar. It will now be a part of our cottage camping adventures.
* the green plaid lunch box was mine when I was a little girl.
* love the color and design of old thermos bottles.
* the mess is getting to me. Overwhelming. Paralyzing. Dismal.
* I think I need a grandbaby fix. A well known cure-all for everything.

Love your lunchbox. How cute you still have it. Yeah, a new kitchen! I am happy for you! Go with granite if you can...we have never been sorry!
Have a good week. Get out and away from the mess. Take a break. That can get old fast!!

I know what you mean about the mess getting to you after awhile. We are in our third week of remodeling. At least we picked the timing for our disarray and yours was thrust upon you.
Praying you will feel a little less anxious and discouraged.

It never ceases to amaze me how many things you have from your childhood. I have like nothing! It will be so fun for your kids to inherit all these treasures.

I hope you're excited about your new kitchen because I am. If you want me to bring you any of my decorating magazines I can do that too. My sister found some really awesome eco-friendly counters for the house she remodeled and is selling. Take a look at them at my Picasa web albums. Let me know if you can't find the pics and I'll send you a link. They have little bits of colored recycled glass in them. Very cool! I'd love to hear what colors/style you're leaning toward so I can help you look for possibilities. If you need a shopping buddy to look for ideas, let me know.
