A is for Adventures!

Here we are at the A-Z Challenge again!  A letter a day through the month of April.  Didn't we just do this?!?!

'A' here in the Ballpark is for Adventures.  

HOW TO MAKE THIS CANDY DISH
Adventures in writing
Adventures in caretaking
Adventures in DIY-ing  
Adventures in baking

Adventures in family
Adventures faith
Adventures in life -
all over the place.

Today's adventure - our refrigerator went out last night.  ARGH!

I was hoping this was an April Fool's joke, but, alas...no.  I can squish the orange juice cans in the freezer.  

Welcome to my Ballpark, where some days I win, and some days I have to buy a new refrigerator.

Sorry to hear about your fridge. You're right though—it's just one part of life's adventure. :)

Happy A to Z!

Adventures is the best way to think about challenges-- life is just one adventure after another LOL.

Your refrigerator going out is NOT supposed to be part of the great adventure! :-(( So sorry.

Cathy said...

thank you so much for checking out my A-Z today and suggesting I come to see you too! I already love it. Life's adventures can leave us breathless with joy, with sorrow, with wonder...with wonder at the joy and sorrow! :)
I was just looking at your candy jar...how to??? I love it!
Crafts are my sanity some days. After a day of pastoral care and meetings, it's a safe escape, and if I'm lucky I end up with something useful!
It's so nice to meet you!

Boy, can I relate to your post today! We just had to redo our kitchen counters ($2,000) because we had to replace the dishwasher ($400). I do enjoy your blog and look forward to visiting. Happy blogging - keep up the good work! www.dianeweidenbenner.com

Sorry about your fridge Mare and I sympathize. Get that fridge shopping done so we can read your wonderfully entertaining A to Z posts.

What an adventure. Adventures in finances, too. On the bright side, you shouldn't have to be having this adventure again anytime soon.

Sorry your adventure had to start out on that note. I do love the A-z posts though.

First time for the A to Z Challenge. Really enjoyed just thinking about adventure while I read your post. I'm very glad my fridge is working, but I am thinking I need more adventure of a positive nature in my life. Have a great day! Thanks for the inspiration.

Ah, it hasn't been that long ago when I had the adventure of having to buy a new fridge. Unfortunately, at the time I didn't think of it as an adventure ...

Love that photo of the unusual candy dispenser!

Oh no! That's a bad April fool's joke when it turns out to be reality!
