Ode to The Refrigerator...and some Loveliness

Ode to The Refrigerator

There it sat, looking so forlorn
It had ceased to be cool,
Became lukewarm

It spoiled all the dairy
Made roast beef
Smell like rotten rosemary

The popsicles were runny
The ice cream dripping
Not so funny!

And new groceries
We lost em
Couldn't take a chance
And so we tossed em

And that's why I care
That my fridge ceased
To cool it's air!

Just thought I'd share what we've been doing the last couple days.  ^_^
Really, I'm a little put out that our baby of a fridge (only six years old) decided to make an early grave of itself.  And now it's sitting on our front porch.  Isn't that just dandy?

Anyway, I have some catching up to do in the wide, wide world of the blogosphere.

Lynette at one of my favorite blogs, Dancing Barefoot on Weathered Ground, featured me the other day  (okay, so I'm just a little late!)  on her Getting to Know You meme.

If you haven't seen her blog yet, you need to go take a little look-see.  You'll love her.  I promise.  Her story will bless you.  She will make you laugh, cry, and leave a better person.  And doesn't her adorable button just make you wanna throw off your shoes and do a little jig?


Another beautiful blogging friend, Carrie at Martin Manor Happenings, has given me this lov-e-ly blog award.  

Thank you, Carrie!  What a sweet gift.  Carrie's blog is a little ray of sunshine.  She takes the most beautiful pictures of her gorgeous family and it's fun to watch her "discover" her talent for photography!  You really should peep in.

The rules are to list 15 lovely blogs that I have "newly discovered".  Ohhhh, I have such hard time obeying the rules because I really do believe every blog is lovely.  I really and honestly do!  Everyone has something that is just so uniquely lovely about them that God gave only them.  So, in my signature "bending the rules a little" fashion, I want all my followers to grab this button because YOU are LOVELY!

Ok, now I'm feeling a bit guilty for not following the rules.  So I'm going to go ahead and list some newly discovered loveliness.

And the lovelies are:

So, to end this extremely random and somewhat lengthy post I will leave you with an exclamation mark.  Because that's just what I do.  I exclaim.  Very enthusiastically and a little too often.... (( ! ))

Joye...you are too funny! I'm sorry that your fridge kicked the bucket. That always stinks when you have to buy a major appliance all over again, especially when it shouldn't have died so soon.

Anyhow...that is so cool that Lynette featured you yesterday. I did see that. I was totally going to do the getting to know you meme like two months ago and just never did. It's such a great way to meet new people!

I will be sure to check out the blogs you listed...I always love meeting new people!

Carrie said...

Oh, bummer on the fridge...that's a sad way to go out...full of brand new groceries! {i bend the rules on awards, too! There are just too many blogs,and such great new friends out there!}

Thanks for the sweet words...you are a so generous with your kindness :)

Hope you're able to find a new fridge with more years in it! Take care :)
{ps...super sweet pic on Making you Home Sing Monday...sorry I missed that yesterday...where did the day go?}

Kate said...

Sorry about your long, lost food! That stinks! Literally :) Congrats on being featured, so cool! I am sure everyone that stops by your blog will love it as much as I do! Thanks for sharing with us!!

mimi said...

I'm a fan of the exclamation point too. Your blog IS lovely :) I will have to go check out the others that you mentioned as well.

And..your poor fridge! Very impressive poem :)

congrats on the award. Our fridge bit the dust about 6 months ago. It was a sad day. Hope you get a great working new one.

Jenilee said...

thank you for the award! how fun! :)

christy rose said...

Bummer about the fridge! But congrats on the award. You and your blog are definitely most lovely!

Tara said...

At least you can make light of a not-so-good situation. I'm off to check out the other blogs you mentioned. Congrats on your awards.

Sorry to hear about the refrigerator. That is no fun at all. We've been wondering if ours is getting ready to go out. I have mixed feelings. On the one had, I would love a new frig. We've had this one for 12 years now. But on the other hand, I don't want to have to pay for it. Hope you find a nice one at a decent price!

Ahaha, I love pressing on the "!" key because it expresses my caffeinated joy :) where's my eyeball missy? Oh wait, that was random. Sorry about that (holds a withered grape close to her chest) Anyway where was I?

Oh yes, thank you for mentioning me! I truly feel honoured :) you're a sweetie pie!!

Psst, my freezer went to heaven a few days ago. I still drank the melted Popsicles, I don't believe in wasting corn syrup capiche?!?

Dear Joye,

I thought of you often this past weekend and prayed for your eye...how are you doing?

Thank you for the kind blog award!

♥ Hope

momstheword said...

Wow. I can't believe it died either! They usually last at least 15-25 years, right?

We lost all our food in the freezer once, so totally feelin' your pain!

Congrats on the award!!!

I understand the refrigerator woes. We had to replace ours last year. Now I actually can have a cold diet coke as opposed to a lukewarm one.

Blessings to you.


Jennifer said...


How sweet you are! I came by to quietly peek in on your latest post, and find that I'm listed as "lovely."

You've blessed me! God bless YOU! :-)

momstheword said...

Thank you for your sweet comments, my friend! I do think we do enjoy the relational part, you're right! It's fun to get to know the people behind the blog, isn't it!

mom-2-4 said...

Hi there,

Dear Joye,

I am going to post your sweet Lovely Blog Award on my blog very soon. I have not had the time to get the blog links together that I need to pass on the award, but I will do it.

Thanks for thinking of me!
