Life and Kitchens and Pipes oh my

 Redemption Brownies

Have you ever been just totally sucked into a persons blog and just wished you lived in their house, or something like that? Don't worry, I don't see that around these parts. Oh well I like my little house. Some days it can be trying. And some day you get water pipes breaking the day before you have family over (twice, read that, twice) but that's part of the fun of home ownership right?

One night when the washer started flooding the laundry room (blocked water pipe, not busted) I went walking through the house grumbling about home ownership and I told Tbug NEVER OWN YOUR OWN HOUSE, it sucks! She was like so do I get to live with you the rest of my life? I told her only if you want to live in a box because that's where I'm moving next. Over dramatic much?!?!

Truthfully when I was around 15 my family went to Ft. Worth, Texas for the AQHYA Worldshow for me to compete and I saw a family living under a bridge. I started crying and saying I never wanted to live under a bridge. To this day I still wonder about that family and whatever happened to them.

That's kind of one of my fears, not going to lie. And I'm really not sure any of this has to do with the pictures above other than it is of my kitchen. I went on a cleaning spree the other day, just the kitchen, but one room at a time. The next day I tackled our bedroom. Baby steps, right? And by the time I get all the rooms clean it will be time to start all over again, right?

And I may just have eaten that salad and then had a brownie... or two or three... I'll never tell!

Happy Hump Day because I guess you need to know what day it is in case you live under a rock or in a box or maybe with a pet fox.


  1. Your kitchen looks cute! I really, really need to clean our kitchen. Seeing the homeless living on the street breaks my heart.

  2. Hi Love, I'm not sure this is what you are looking for, but take it from me.......because I've lost my house.....true security doesn't come from a building, or a job, or "things". It comes from faith in God to see you through and faith that He is in control, not us. I'm sure you remember what happened to us a few years ago, but it was God's plan and it's been such a wonderful blessing that it happened!!! So I guess what I'm trying to say for Him, live by faith and know that God has a plan for you and yours. It might be different than your plans you have for yourself, but trust me, His plans are always better! :) AND as for all those fancy blogs with fancy are a know that pictures very often don't tell the true reality. They can set the stage for a simply amazing looking photo with a pile of crap off on the opposite side of the's all staging, lighting and careful editing! :) Much love to you! :)

  3. Yes, small steps are all that's required because as soon as you are done you'll start all over again.
