Shew!!!! Wednesday already... I have been busy working, but have gotten a few things done by choice and some not so much by choice. Don't forget to check Leslie for others who are probably working on better stuff than me.
Lets see hubby was hunting all weekend since bow season started. He hasn't shot anything, but he saw the BIGGEST deer you've ever seen. I think it's kinda like the big fish that got away. I'm not so sure he saw it. LOL. Anyway, so I thought I'd get busy working on Christmas. So, my one friend asked that I make her snowman ornies to sell. She wanted two sizes. So this is what I came up with. I know the stain got blotchy, but I screwed it up. Yep imagine that. O alright I tell you what I did you twisted my arm. Now I have been staining for a long time so I have no idea how I did this. I put some cold coffee in the microwave to warm it up. hehe must have put it in a little too long because when I went to add some more instant coffee it bubbled up over the top of the container I had it in and ran everywhere. So... to all of you don't put instant coffee in really hot coffee. LOL. Lesson learned!!! So, I clean up a little a one not to waste I used what was left. I also let these out in the air to dry, not in the oven like I usually do. Oh yeah right the picture... They are not done yet of course (the hand was for size for my friend so she could tell how big they were)
I am also working on gingerbread men. I have only sewed them not clipped and turned so I'm not going to show those yet.
Let's see... oh yeah remember this picture??? AWWWWWW how cute.... looks great.... right???
This is how it looks this AM...
My hubby and I decided to go to Lowes to get a few things. I found my matching microwave to my fridge and oven. Ohhhhh I was so close to buying it, but didn't. OK what does this have to do with my fridge you're thinking... well my fridge must have heard talking about this new member of the family. Huh??? Well, when we got home my hubby noticed some water running down the front of my freezer door where the ice and water come out. He goes and wipes it up. Opens the freezer door and what???? why is our stuff melting??? Yep my NEW fridge took a poop. We bought it last April when we bought the house. Oh I was furious. It is Sunday, I can't find my extended warranty paperwork, and now what am I going to do with the the fridge and freezer stuff? GRRRRRR... look at my last post can it get much worse???? If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all. LOL. So luckily we kept the old fridge that was in this house out in the garage for pop and water and freezer jam, etc. Just over flow stuff. We shuttled everything out there to save what we could. My hubby is now on the phone with Lowes asking them what to do. Of course they give him another phone number to call. So he calls it and tells them the problem and that we can't find the paperwork. No problem the guy says if you say you bought it I believe you and put us down for the four year warranty. Thank goodness for nice people. He said I'll call the repair people and we'll call you tomorrow. Great!!!! The call came in they can't get to you until Tuesday (yesterday). Fine please call when he is on his way since it would be somewhere between 8a-5p. Well both my hubby and me had to work so no one could be here. Hubby can be flexible since he works for himself. Well, he gets this call that the guy is at our house and never called. My hubby was about 30 minutes away and asked now what? The repair guy said he had another repair to make in our town and that he'd come back. My hubby was so mad because the place promised to have him call BEFORE he got there. Hmmm... bad customer service I'd say. Anyway, long story short, my freezer is fixed (some kind of fan on the back of the freezer) and I don't have to pay for it. YIIPPEEEE!!!! Now I just have to redecorate, but luckily I have pictures to do it the same way. LOL.
We have poured our concrete pad for our new outdoor wood furnace that should be arriving any day now. We decided that this would be the best heat source for our home this winter since the price of propane and natural gas are going to sky rocket. Last year we paid between $500-$800 a month for propane. If you don't know what this type of outdoor furnace is wait and I'll post about it when it gets here. I am so excited and hubby has been busy cutting wood. I might be able to stay warm.
Other than that not much has happened. I plan on getting some stuff done today and tomorrow since I'm off. You know laundry, baking banana bread, cleaning, redecorating. LOL.
