Closing and Opening

The house closed on Wednesday after all, two days too late for my overwhelmed immune system.  I took a truckload full of stuff to the closing and started moving in immediately afterward, coughing and sneezing and wheezing.

Yesterday at noon, I arrived for the walkthrough to find deer in the yard. It's a much smaller yard than I have now, but it's got a swingset!  I love swings!

I took the tape off the vintage refrigerator, turned it on and opened it up.  I think it's the same age as the house.  The fridge still works, sort of.  The freezer gave up the ghost years ago, which is ironic, considering how much frozen blueberries, peaches, pesto and other garden bounty I have in the freezer at my place in the country. (Yeah, it sounds way weird to say, "my place in the country.")

Looking inside, the shelves are metal and they rotate out!  I was hoping I could use this for a while, but it's obvious that I'll have to buy a new refrigerator really soon, as in if I want anything cold, I'll have to have a new fridge.  It's a shame to let Sears take this one away, so I'm thinking about putting it on ebay just to see if anyone's interested in a vintage fridge. I doubt it, since there are other vintage refrigerators on ebay that are un-bidded-upon, but I should give it a chance.  It'll be a good excuse to take a break from packing and moving and curl up with the hotpad and the laptop.


  1. Congrats Jordan! I do hope you feel better soon so you can enjoy your "new" place. Hopefully your house in the country will sell quickly and then you can really move on with your life. Good Luck!

  2. That fridge is so cool...

    But I don't want to buy it, (grin)

    Congrats on the move. Hopefully you'll feel beter soon!

  3. I'm glad to hear you were able to close. That is a cool fridge.

  4. Maybe craigslist for the fridge, or the front yard with FREE TO A GOOD HOME, although around here, people come and scarf the copper from stuff and leave it there in worse shape then before and you STILL have to deal with it. Maybe a little note on the feedstore bulletin board and someone needs a frig for their shed and don't care about the freezer... although it would be nice to not have to replace it, at least you know NOW and not when all your stuff is ruined and thawed out. Been there, done that! And you can pick just the model you want..
    Glad you're on the move in and hope you keep posting!
