Welcome to my new blog look! I figured that since I no longer live on Bonnie Lane, it was time for me to find a new blog name. My choice was Life on the Edge. I figured that it really fit what is going on in my life. There were some terrific suggestions from my readers too, my favorite being Kady-did Cottage. Though I am not going to change my blog name to that, at least not for now, that is the name I will be referring to my new home!
Also, I have great news! Remember back in February when I had an interview at a day care center? I was called back today for a second interview and I got the job! It is only part time and the pay isn't very good, but I can still get unemployment to make up the difference between the pay and what I have been receiving weekly. I go in for training tomorrow, and I start on Wednesday! I will work Monday and Wednesday, and can substitute one other day during the week. I am so excited to be working again!
Ok, on with the blues! I am very late in posting this today because I had to get my pictures downloaded to discs in order to put them on this computer, and then I had a ton of other stuff going on.
You may have seen my blue glass before, but since my apartment is too small for my display cabinet, I put it all in my cupboards. I am tempted to remove the doors, but I don't think the landlord would like that. Notice my poor butter dish that fell and broke when I was unpacking! I don't know if I can repair it or not.
Can you believe that I never unpacked my blue canisters at my old house? They were in a box in the garage and I couldn't find them! I am so happy to finally have them at home on my countertop. Sorry for the quality of the picture. My son's computer is so old that he can't download the program that lightens the pictures. I had to use Microsoft Paint to reduce the size of the pic.
My kitchen at my old old house was blue, but in my house on Bonnie Lane, the walls were green so my blue stuff just didn't fit. The kitchen walls here in the apartment are an awful blue and tan plaid, but my stuff actually fits here! It kind of rocks that whole '80s vibe. I actually hate the wallpaper a little less.
My favorite thing of all is the wood display cabinet which also sat in my garage. I had the perfect place for it in my kitchen on Bonnie Lane, but I was so busy that I never got around to repairing and painting it. I fixed the door, but it's not quite right yet and won't close fully, and I am now reconsidering as to whether or not I should paint it white. It's finally getting used for its intended purpose though, for storage and as a place for all my blue spongeware to live.
I'll show more of my apartment and my neighborhood as soon as I can. My computer is out for repair and I don't know when I'll get it back, so I am having a hard time downloading pics. My son suggested the library, so I'll see if I can do temporary downloads there that I can email to myself.
In the meantime, check out the other blue posts at Smiling Sally's blog.
