Not really, but for blogging purposes, that title sounded good.
See this pile of stuff? Where do you think that was? I guess the title kind of gives it away.
We just returned from Barcelona, which was a wonderful trip and I'll tell you about it in a day or two, to empty out suitcases for all 7 of us leaving me with the never ending task of Mt. Washmore. (All you Flylady fans will get that!) We were all in 4 different places at one time, which means loads and loads of laundry to contend with upon our return. Not to mention there was
alot some waiting to be done before we ever left because my old dryer was out of commission.
Lo and behold, my new dryer shows up today. I was expecting it this morning, but it arrived early afternoon. No problem. I went to operate what looked like would be somewhat complicated due to all the new settings I would soon get to know all too well, when the dryer just would not turn on. It turns out that socket behind the dryer no longer works. I think the old dryer blew it out. Now we need to get that fixed.
I plugged it into an outlet above the countertop. If you look closely, you'll see it. Go ahead, take a peek.

Oh, what about the first picture of that pile of stuff? That was what came out of the very first load that I dried today. Apparently one of the kiddos had a pack of Wrigley's Spearmint in their pocket. I have no time to check all pockets. Do you do that? Just curious.
My quest will continue for at least two more days. And you know full well, that new clothes are getting dirty as I sit here and type.
I'm just thankful I have a new dryer! Sheesh, it's hard to have a washer or dryer go bad on you, isn't it? By the way, I visited that laundromat twice that day. I have this thing about wanting all of our wash done, and the house spotless before I go on a trip.
And now, totally off the subject of laundry, here is the table as I set it tonight with the help of one of the twins, Grant. Since Thanksgiving is not celebrated here and my neighbors probably think I'm weird with pumpkins out in November, I decided to bring them in. Afterall, we will celebrate Thanksgiving a few days after the official holiday since my sweet hubs will be working on that Thursday.
I love all of the bright colors.
