How cold is cold?

   ......or how cold is freezing?
Just to let you know this post is not about the weather.....  at least not directly, but as a result!

We have an extra refrigerator in the garage for the typical overflow of when I go on one of my mad cooking rampages or more importantly for my "slight" obsession with this.  A few weeks ago when the temperature was hovering in the single digits I went out to the garage to get my ice cream & found (insert scream) I could drink it instead of using a spoon.  It was very obvious to me that the freezer was not working.  I informed Popster of the dilemma but his solution was to wait a couple days til the weather warmed up to see if that would make a difference.  Meantime I emptied the freezer of all essential ice cream food!

Sure enough after a couple days of warmer temps the freezer got colder.  Is it me or does that sentence make no sense?  I waited more than a week & went out to stock up on the ice cream never know when the powers in charge will decide to do away with the only flavor I will eat!  The very next day I went to put something in the freezer & the ice cream was getting soft again(insert louder scream).

 Popster & I had the same argument discussion about getting it fixed. 

He, however, is not completely convinced it's not working & decides to go to the store to get a thermometer to check it out.  Who am I to stand in the way of a man on a mission so I quietly move all my stash to the freezer in the kitchen.  He was so proud of the thermometer he bought as it had a "safe zone" on it for both the freezer & refrigerator section. 

I just nodded my head because it was then  I decided that you can't fight city hall or if it comes down to it, a man armed with a cool (pun intended) refrigerator thermometer!

I, however, did mutter under my breath that when you can drink ice cream with a straw it's a pretty good indication that the freezer is not working!


  1. Oh my god, you eat ice cream like me, well moreover you eat as much ice cream as me .
    So is the iice cream shelf, I mean freezer working? Can't you just stash it in a snow drift?

  2. Did he really have to buy a thermometre to determine that ice cream you can drink threw a straw is not right? Egads.

    1. Dawn you can't make this stuff up! People wouldn't believe you! He not only bought it but was very proud of it!

  3. What would you do without a man to make sure you don't buy something you don't need.

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val
