Back From Aruba!

Tom's Aruba 001Hi everyone!  We are back from Aruba….unfortunately. 🙁   Not that I don’t love you guys, but our vacation was absolutely fantastic.

Speaking of love, thank you all so much for showing me the love and chatting profusely in my absence. It is so great to come back and see all kinds of comments from both new and faithful readers. 

I am going to just chill today and get caught up, but then I will begin posting like crazy.  We saw great stuff in Aruba, and some of it is even going to make its way onto the blog.  I also have a great house for sale with original 50’s charm, pictures from reader Alex’s house and a great Mid-Century Menu for this week.

I miss the beach…but it is good to be back!

    Yippee-Skippee, you’re back, Ruth and Tom!

    The photo of the winds blowing the palm trees looks so inviting, as long as the winds aren’t hurricane force winds, LOL!

    Lack of beach/water is one reason why I don’t want to move. I’ve always lived near water and if I had to live inland, I’d probably go stark, raving mad.

    Real estate tours tomorrow on one home, maybe two in the ‘hood. The one we’re seeing tomorrow is a foreclosure for (don’t faint, Sara) $49,500.00. Only drawbacks on it is a flat roof (not good in snow country) and no basement (on a concrete slab). The good features are it’s a 4 bed/2 bath attached 2 car garage. I believe the house was built in 1950, so cross your fingers that nobody’s messed with the kitchen and baths! Yep, I had Bob put my camera in the car so I wouldn’t forget it.

    Thanks, Ruth, for posting new stuff on your blog even though you weren’t here.

    I’ll send the oxygen your way, Sara!

    I’ll forward the listing to you, although the photos are that good and they don’t have many interior shots.

    We meet the realtor there at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
