Preeti Shenoy had this post on her blog a while ago which captured my attention and I have been wanting to do this for a while now. Finally found the time to take a picture and upload.
Like Preeti says, fridges do have character. Every time am at a friend’s place, I am fascinated by what the have on their fridge or not. I look at the things stuck on it and wonder what story they are trying to tell. My fridge is a mute witness to my life and tells a story by itself.
Mostly there are magnets that are reminiscent of the places I have visited. Each time I look at those magnets, I remember something lovely from the time I spent there. Like Napa valley with my cousins wine tasting or Hersheys with my FIL and mom or Seattle and endless chat sessions with my cousin. Then there are innocuous looking magnets that were gifts from K to me. The one that says “Happiness is home brewed.” Nothing could be truer of our lives. The two pastel hangings were a gift from my friend Arch for my birthday in 2001. I remember being touched, thrilled and surprised that she remembered to not only wish me but send me a gift as well. Those are one of the most treasured gifts I have.
There are the two witty magnets acquired from visits to Amish County 30 miles west of where I live. Each have provided laughs whenever someone visits home and reads them for the first time. To me they are a reminder not to take my weight issues or fights seriously. On a rather sober note, the one about not going to bed angry always reminds me never to carry over disagreements to the next day. It’s a rule K and I live by and is quite something we are proud about.
I could go on about each of those pieces stuck there but I am guessing you get the drift. Now, I’d like to ask — “What’s on your fridge?”
