Written by Sue, Monday, January 21, 2013, a beautiful sunny day, temps. 50+ temps.
They say to always expect the unexpected, but this one I didn't expect....
Most everyone knows I have been busy trying to get things at the farmhouse back in order, two weeks ago this cabinet was one of my projects. Saturday while passing through I happened to look at my supposedly clean and organized hutch,and noticed some red sticky stuff on my dresser scarf, upon further investigation I found shattered glass on both shelves along with this red gooey stuff.
There was slivers of glass everywhere in the cabinet, on both shelves, the cordial had drained outside on the buffet server, down the back of it and had ran along the baseboard on my new floors. It was a mess to say the least. It took me 2 hours to find all that glass, and clean this mess up. Besides the raspberry cordial, not a dish nor glass was broken.

What I don't understand is how this bottle sat in this cabinet for three years, and withstood packing and unpacking and then just decided to explode. What I am thankful for is that it didn't explode in my hands while I was unpacking it and placing it in the cabinet. ~smile~
"There, there, sweetie everything is going to be just fine, Mama has you all cleaned and ready, now doesn't that feel better?"
From now own, I will drink the juice, and put colored water in the bottles. LOL.
