Small fridge for a small house

I got a small refrigerator-2.7 or 3.7, somewhere in there-yesterday at a garage sale, and am pleased with the purchase. If it works out as well as it may, I might not ever want a full size fridge again. I enjoy grocery shopping, prefer everything fresh anyway, and really only need a refrigerator for milk, yogurt, condiments, and leftovers usually. Freezer space is a little more difficult to manage. I love a large freezer, and mine’s usually full to overflowing with bargains. The fact that I forget them until freezer burn sits in makes me think the smaller freezer won’t be such a bad thing, either.

 

 

In other news the owner of the house I was going to buy has signed a release of contract. That’s a relief. I didn’t realize that if the realtor isn’t really good, a buyer may be stuck. A buyer can’t really do inspections prior to an offer, but after an offer has been made if the proper contingencies aren’t written into the contract, the owner can sue if the buyer tries to back out, in addition to keeping the earnest money.

I will be very, very careful if I ever attempt to buy another house. More than likely, though, my next purchase will be the land I hope to build on unless the perfect cabin comes up for sale in the perfect place. I guess I’m slightly strange, but I like the idea of owning a piece of land. If I have land, I have a small means of providing my own food, whether that be a garden or chickens or an orchard or some combination. Without land, I don’t feel truly self sufficient. Guess it’s the country girl in me… or maybe the pioneer blood.

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? http://wp.me/p1CY5z-1R Baptism! http://wp.me/s1CY5z-baptism

  1. I feel the same way. I’ve got to own land to feel like myself. I loved owning my acreage in Douglas County and I look forward to owning more land again someday.
