Bad News & a Pick Me Up

Well we had some bad news today. The deal on the house we were trying to buy has fallen through. What a bad day! This was the fourth house we put an offer on and we paid for inspections, appraisals, and so many other things on 3 different houses. Every deal just kept falling through. In total we are out thousands of dollars. We are going to give it a rest for a few months and maybe later in the autumn give it another go and try to find another house.

To cheer myself up I bought some gorgeous gladiolus. They are just starting to open their lovely blossoms. Aren't they pretty?

I got to spend some time in the kitchen with my youngest son cooking a nice dinner.

Cooking is one of my favorite things to do. It is so relaxing and I love it when Alex helps out. He wants to be a chef when he grows up. He loves cooking as much as I do.

After dinner we made yummy root beer floats. I served mine in my favorite mug.

I guess when it is the right house and it is meant to be it will happen. Hubby is so sweet, he keeps trying to cheer me up. I am glad I got to spend the afternoon with my family. It ended up being kind of a good day.

hi rebecca,

that sounds frustrating, disappointing and upsetting but good for you for finding the bright spots, like enjoying time with your sweeties.

timing can be everything and maybe it's just not the time. enjoy your summer and just relax. sound good?
