Weeeellllll. How’s everyone doing?? ME TOO! It makes sense that my last post was about slacking, b/c it’s been two days and I haven’t been blogging – or even READING BLOGS – at all. Crazy! I know. And I am sorry. I have been thinking about everyone, but that whole “losing my dishwasher” thing really threw me over the edge. I am verrry pleased to announce however, that as of today, we HAVE A BRAND NEW DISHWASHER!!! And it is NOT ME!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to introduce Whirlpool 2. Look how beautiful he is!

WOW! My husband is HOTTTTTTTTTT. And the dishwasher is good looking too!

We did end up buying our new washer from Lowe’s. It was affordable (sort of) and did not leave me screaming inside anymore. So I am so happy. I did however end up having to wash a whole helping heaping of pots & pans.. Not good. I have a terrible time w/ dishwashing liquid b/c my skin is incredibly dry. I am going to have to moisturize like CRAZY to get them back to the level of suppleness they are accustomed to. It is HARD being a housewife, let me tell you.

SO. besides the whole DISHWASHER saga. Today was the first delivery & pickup for our CSA. For those of you unfamiliar with a CSA, it is a Community Supported Agriculture group, a produce co-op if you will, and it is AWESOME. A friend (HOLLA!! J.) and I are co-hostess-ing this year, and since she is away on vaca (hissssssssssss) I am taking the 1st half of the season. I met many lovely people today during pickup hours (and doesn’t THAT sound exciting – hah!) we got a whole delectable array of gorgeous organic veggies, including asparagus, portabello mushrooms and an assortment of greens. For dinner I made pasta w/ sauteed spinach and mushrooms, and it was FABBBBBBULOUS. Yum. Yum. YUmmmmm.

I wanted to remind all of you that tomorrow (or TODAY, depending upon when you read this) – FRIDAY, MAY 9th is your VERY LAST CHANCE to sign up to win a FREE NECKLACE in my (Curly-inspired) Pay It Forward. I am getting very excited to make those beautiful pieces and I am wishing you all the very best of luck at winning them. If you’ve yet to sign up, do so now. Time’s a-wasting! I will be drawing the 3 lucky recipients Saturday morn, once I have shaken off my beauty sleep and fed our huge cadre of animals. Woohoo. It should be lots of fun, since I am going to do a super high-tech *Picking it from a HAT* drawing. WOW. Until then, Good luck everyone!

  1. i can see from your picture that you’re a kitchen-aid whore. v. sad. i, too, have a kitchen-aid mix master. it weighs 324 pounds and lives in my basement. with my airhorn. and my waffle iron.

  2. Thanks ladies!! I am truly loving this new dishwasher. I took the first load out and was AMAZED. Everything was sooooo sparkling clean – My dishes and glasses have never looked so goood. I do not think Whirlpool 1 ever was this good. Dishwasher technology must be moving at warp speed.

    Thanks also for the lovely comments about John. I think he is gorgeous too.. I am one lucky woman.

    Curl, I do have 2 kitchen-aid mixers. I’ve had them for years – one was a Christmas gift when I was in my late teens, the other was my G-ma’s – I got it when she moved into her hotel-cum-retirement home. I loveloveloveee them both, and sometimes think I need a third. I do bake a lot. You should pull yours out this weekend and whip something up. Then you can post pix and we can all oooohhh and ahhhhh. Then you can send it to me to add to my collection.

    PS: I just found out we’re going to Williamsburg! I’ll look for you! 😉

  3. Yeah for the new dishwasher, washing dishes sucks!

    I have a Kitchenaid and love it to pieces, but have to agree that they do weigh about 200 lbs. Also no matter how much cleaning there is ALWAYS more flour or batter hiding somewhere. I suppose that just means it’s properly loved though 🙂

  4. Awww…good for you! You two go very nicely together…well of course I meant the husband!
    My kitchenaid is lonely b/c I appear to be on strike. Hope you are feeling better. What are you using on your dry skin? My derm recommended Cera Ve lotion but it appears to have those questionable parabens etc. in it. Fresh vegetables are always a welcome treat! Good Luck to everyone in the contest…
    p.s. scarf will be on route before next winter…I PROMISE!!!

  5. Oh Hayden, I understand. PS: If you don’t win I can always make you one as a belated bday gift!

    OrSo, I agree 100%! Dishwashing is no fun. Unless you are 4. My younger daughter LOVES IT. Too bad she doesn’t do the best job or it would be hers. My mixers have caked-on goop too. I think of it as a Badge of Honor~ !

    Thanks Connie! You will have to whip up something for your adorable grandkids soon. Better yet, let them make something for YOU this weekend, and have the menfolk do the cleaning up! Yay! For my dry skin I use L’Occitane shea butter ultra rich body cream – fabulous stuff and it keeps my skin so soft and smooth. I also recently got a super thick salve from Vermont called (no joke) Bag Balm.
    Happy Mothers Day to you!! And I can’t wait for the scarf! THANK YOU!!
