So here are a few things.
1. I got a new-to-me refrigerator. It has a freezer on the bottom. My grandmothers both had freezers on the bottom before it was cool and I have wanted one ever since. It is revolutionary. My in-laws moved to Louisiana last month and ended up with 3 refrigerators. So we got this one. Hurray!
2. We went to visit said in-laws in Louisiana. I don’t know why, maybe it is all those books by Rebbecca Wells that I love. Or maybe it is because one of my most favorite vacations ever was taken in Louisiana, or maybe it is because there seem to be Mother Mary’s at every turn. But I love that state. Someday, maybe when I am gray headed and sowing my wild oats at last, I will move there and write fiction.
