I Won't Sing The Laundry Room Blues


My washing machine broke. Poor old gal was just worn out. She just couldn't spin anymore.

So Hubs, sweet man that he is, bought me a new one!

Ain't she sweet!

We went out yard selling today and found this Sweetie! Don't you love the vintage green wash tub!

Since I really did need a new washer, we also bought this MATCHING set!

Our town is very small. There is not a yard sale on every corner, like in the desert. We bought this used set from a man parked in the middle of town with the set on a flatbed trailer. Delivery was free!

We had a wonderful day!


I'm back to school. The children arrive on Tuesday. 23 bright eyed little kinder-kids! I can't wait!

Alaska was wonderful. Truly a trip of a lifetime.


These pictures were taken out the window of the Alaska Railroad Train with my IPad.

If you have ever dreamed of going to Alaska, DO IT!

It is amazing!


I will probably be busy with school and wont be blogging as much. I do hope to visit with you as i can this year.

Blessings to you and yours!

  6. Hi, Patti,
    I am so glad you were able to find a new washer and dryer. A gal has got to have a washer and dryer!! I love your antique one, too. Lucky you to have been able to visit Alaska. I have wanted to take an Alaskan cruise for quite a while. I didn't know about the railroad trip. It looks absolutely beautiful there! Wishing you a wonderful school year with your little ones!! Blessed September week to you~Vicki

  7. It's tough when the ol' gals loose their spin :( I think I like that rusty charmer more than your new set! I wonder what you've got planned for her? I hope you have a great year ahead in school (just dropped off an extremely shy little 4-year old at Jr Kinder this a.m.). Your Alaska trip sounds amazing, and I'm sure I'll be out there one day to experience all that beautiful scenery. Wendy

  8. Looks like the old gal gave you lots of years of good service! Love the green washer How fun! Blessings to you as you start your new year. Hope you find time to blog now and again. You'll be missed!

  9. Oh, that's great! It's good to know that you had a wonderful trip! Now, you must be busy with your school kids. But, what an amazing job it is!As you've rightly said. Have fun!

  10. Aren't you glad we don't have to wash with those old wringer washers? I love the windows on that train. Amazing view everywhere you look.


Thank you so much for visiting! May your day be blessed!
Hugs, Patti
