It picked a good day to die

Last night as I was getting something out of our deep chest freezer, I noticed our food was getting soft.  Oh no! The ice cream was more like milkshake consistency rather than ice cream and our homemade jam looked a bit more like strawberry syrup.  This definitely constituted an emergency! We have so many homemade goodies in our freezer.  We have so many hours of hard work from our garden stored in there.  All our garden treasures from the summer!  All of our favorite foods! Thankfully, our big freezer picked a good day to die.  With temperatures this cold, we set up a make-shift freezer section outside and all our food was saved. Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I immediately started looking for a replacement and first thing this morning, Mr. Yesteryear Acres and my son were on their way to pick up a new freezer. We were lucky to have found a floor "scratch and dent" model at an appliance outlet store that was available for pick up this morning.  The manager had indicated that it was cosmetically in bad condition but the freezer was in good working order. When Mr. Yesteryear Acres arrived, the store had TWO models and one was in great condition! Guess which one came home with them?! I couldn't believe it when they pulled in the driveway - one perfect new freezer!!!!!  While Mr. Yesteryear Acres and my son worked on removing the old chest freezer and installing the new one, Bri and I got all the food outside organized into neat and tidy sections. We just have one thing left for our evening of "fun". Time to carry everything back inside and fill up the new freezer.  And people say we don't know how to have a good Saturday night! Hey - maybe if we finish at a reasonable hour, we can celebrate with some nice cold frozen ice cream!  I happen know of a good ice cream section outside with great flavors!  Coffee Toffee Crunch anyone?
