We have been doing work on the house for a while now, ripping things out, patching things up.. must mostly ripping things out. Well yesterday we made our first purchase for something that is going into the house... A vintage green pedestal sink. YES!!! I scoured the internet,looked in salvage yards, all the while not really thinking I would find anything (anything I could afforded) but lo and behold, two days ago I found one on craigslist. Crazy, and only a little drive away. So the mr and I jumped on that and yesterday we drove out to the country, stopped at the pig farm, feed the cutest 5 week old piglets stale donuts and retrieved out new green sink from the frozen mud. I am so excited. We have officiallybought our first major piece for the house. And it's so pretty and green and almost tacky, (could get tacky) but is going to be perfect. Oh how I love me the craigslist.
Other news. Have you hear about the pre-peeled oranges from Whole Foods, the ones that made everyone all crazy and waere all over the news and internet? So stupid right. (Like yeah it's kinda stupid to sell pre-peeled oranges and a waste of plastic, but is it any more dumb the to sell single serve plastic coffee pods, shrink wrapped potatoes, or plastic wrapped junk food. Just saying.) The mr and I were watching the morning news when the story came on. We started to have very normal discussion about who and why and all that when I guess I made a comment about how I have to peel his oranges. (I don't peel his oranges, but I might have helped start a orange a few tines) And then all of a sudden this light hearted discussion about pre-peeled oranges went down hill. The pre peeled oranges made us turn on each other (our argument might not been entirely about the oranges...) Long story short. probably not going to be buying oranges for a while....Or maybe I'll take it one step further and just stock the fridge with pre-peeled, sectioned off segments of oranges.
HAHAHAHA. I am brilliant!
So oranges, new green sink, and the temperature outside is going up up UP. Life is life and going pretty good. I am excited and ready and going to pull my bike out of the basement today. As soon as all the ice is melted out of the road... look out world! And clean. All I want to do it clean. Have you gotten the spring clean itch yet? My itch is like a rash. I want to get ride of EVERYTHING and power wash the inside of the house. I also want to invent something that keeps the dog nasty off of my life kinda like a bath). Yeah, maybe we will wash Washer today. That could be fun (not at all fun)
Other then that, not sure. Hoping for a long leisurely walk (pre-dog bath), a spring time salad situation involving lots of fresh baby arugula and pears and at least one small nap on the couch with window open. Not to much to ask, but we shall see.
