Refridgeration, sweet, glorious refridgeration, is ours once again. We snagged this beauty of a fridge off Trade-Me last week for a pretty sweet price. And this one- cockroach free!
Our friends Amber and Dale helped us pick up and move our new purchase.
What was I most excited to refridgerate?
And a big block of Tasty cheese, known in North America as cheese of the white cheddar variety. I am pretty stoked to now be able to keep frozen berries in the house too.
Along with a fridge, we also got a couch! Also a Trade-Me buy.
The addition of a couch has made the hugest difference in helping our place feel like a home. Finally, something to collapse into at the end of the day!
Our favorite aspect of the couch is probably its dual-napping feature. The chaise makes it possible for two people to nap on the couch at once. What a marvelous concept! Mel has tested the couch out pretty much every evening this week, and has confirmed that the couch is indeed great for falling asleep on.
It’s been a big week in the Neilson household, as far as home furnishings go.
The further addition of some bedside tables, fashioned from some wicker baskets, along with a table lamp that was a steal of a deal, have made our place feel like even more of a home, although they pale in necessity to the couch and the fridge.
You may be surprised, but living without a fridge for 5 weeks was really not that bad. Our friends, Brandon and Kristen, lent us their cooler, which functioned as a fridge when filled with ice a couple times a week. Nevertheless, we are definitely thankful to have a more permanent form of refrigeration at our disposal now. It’s funny how you take things like having a fridge for granted, until you find yourself without one. Now a trip to the refridgerator to grab some yogurt or a cold drink feels like more of a luxury than a right.
