Blabbin' Grammy had a post the other day of the things she had on her refrigerator. I promised her I would post a picture of what I have on mine. Take a look!I keep this chalk board on the top....I'm forever writing different things there. If I'm not feeling well, I will write "Clara's Cafe CLOSED for the day." It's fun!
This is the front. In case you cannot read what is on the paper, I will write it here. I wrote this about twenty years ago. It is all splattered and wrinkled, but still there. Maybe someday I will cross stitch the verse. It says:
Thank God for dirty dishes.....
They have a tale to tell....
While others may go hungry,
We're eating very well.
With Home and Health and Happiness....
I shouldn't want to fuss.
For by the stack of evidence...
God's been so good to us.
Isn't that true?
Then over on the left are two little stuffed faces I made....a pig and a cat. They are old also. Then there is Ryan and Lucas. The little sign on that side has different women mopping, washing clothes, ironing and up at the top it says, "I'd rather be knitting." There's a little tiny piece of paper taped there that I got out of a fortune cookie the other day. It says: "There is a prospect of a thrilling time ahead for you."
I say "Bring it on.....I can't wait for that." LOL..... And that's what I have on my refrigerator!

Clara, I love the board on top of your fridge. I cook a lot and could close up once in a while, also. lol.
That poem is so true. We are all very lucky. I have my grandson on my fridge, too.

Hello Clara
I know that I for one would rather be knitting than cooking lol
Take care

I hope it's ok if I play things on my refrigerator too?

Dear Clara,
What a lovely idea of a poem on your fridge! And yes, there are a lot of things that I would rather do than cook and clean, and most usually, I am doing them. Ha!
However, I do love to cook when I am in the mood for it.
Wonderful stuff on your fridge.

HI Clara! I love your little chalk sign! Maybe sometime I'll show some of the things on my fridge!

Very neat peek of what's on your refrigerator.
I really like that chalk board, and the poem connecting dirty dishes to God's blessings is really cute.


Blogstock was really fun. I hope to have a chance to meet you in person some day! Maybe at the next Blogstock.

Love the verse on your fridge. I must say - your looks much neater than mine. I tend to accumulate pictures and such.
