HOW BIG IS A CUBIC FOOT????

Ohhhh!!!! It can't be housework Tuesday again already!!!!!!!
Ahhh,but it is, so up and at it because I have plans for the afternoon. All the new furniture is still in the back of the truck,at least I can put off moving things around until later.
I finished cleaning and laundry about 3 and headed out to make a couple Avon stops then off to Lowe's to shop for more plants and look at new front load washers,yea, I've wanted one of these for a long time and with the rebates coming next week,I've decided now is the time! After looking them over and talking to a salesman,all I need to do is decide the size I want 4.0 cubic ft. or 4.5 cubic ft.????? Decisions,decisions, any suggestions?????
Made my way home with my new plants,learned something today, when daughter and I were plant shopping a week or so ago we saw several plants that I went looking for today and was told they were sold out and they would not get any more,lesson, when you see something you want buy it then!
I worked all evening planting the plants, it got to dark before I got it all done to make pictures so that will come tomorrow. I need a large cement or faux cement pot,but I refuse to pay $50 for a flower pot so I am going to a local place where they make cement pots and lawn ornaments of all kinds to see what they have,hopefully tomorrow.
I took this pic earlier today,my forsythias are really showing themselves this year.Here is a super cute picture from a homeowner in Asheville today of what she saw on her patio.Very rarely do mama bears ever take their cubs anywhere close to humans,wonder what she's thinking?
Although a very cute picture,I think this sight on my patio would make me very nervous!
I baked cakes tonight ,after helping hubbie and #2 son get the new bed into place.
Thanking God for all the blessings of today.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, Yes----I always wait too long and then they don't have anymore for sale.... I keep thinking that I have plenty of time to buy things.... NOT!!!! ha

The Forsythia is gorgeous... Our Redbuds are really showing off this year... I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Ugh---that Mama Bear and her cubs are adorable. BUT---I'd die if they cam on my deck or patio.... Yipes!!!!!

Have a great Wednesday.

Hi Marilyn, Beautiful, brilliant forsythia photo!
I have heard horror stories from both my sis and brother about front load washers. They constantly have problems and both had to replace after only 3 years. I wish you the best with your choice as I know as busy as you and your family stay you don't need trouble and aggravation!
I bet your home smells delicious with cakes baking!!!

Have a blessed day.

My sister-in-law has had "visitors" like those at her yard but they haven't been as cute as those in your picture. :s SCARY!

I wonder what's the difference in price for only .5 cubic foot ...

Merle had a front door washer and she has had trouble with it too. Her model had been discontinued though ... so who knows, sometimes the more technological we get more trouble is there to come. Hopefully by now they have perfected those models and yours will work great!

Hi, I'm Amy! said...

I'd say if the price isn't much different, go as big as you can!

My mom has a front loader that shes had for quite a while and she loves it. You might want to ask her what brand it is...
