As I was coming in the back door of the mudroom, a couple days ago I smelled some kind of strange smell. I couldn't make out what it was so I didn't think too much about it. The next day it was a little stronger and Hubby asked "do you smell somthing out here". Yes, I said, but I can't figure out what it is. Suzy and Josh were both here and Suzy said she smelled somthing when she came in. Ron asked me if I thought maybe it was my Lavender that was drying...but no way does Lavender smell like that! After the kids left we started looking around the mudroom and couldn't find anything!!!! Then Ron looked at our freezer and said "you don't think?" as he opened the lid. OH MY!!!! What a smell!!! Some how the freezer had been unpluged and every thing in it was BAD!!! Big ole turkey, a ham, and I don't know what else. When that smell came out of that freezer it hit every fly in this town and they were all over the windows and the screen door. Ron was sweeping them up with the sweeper, there were so many, and I went to the store after fly spray. Needless to say, we spent today cleaning that freezer and that mudroom. WOW, what a mess......but we got it done and moved the empty freezer into the kitchen. Now I have more space in the mudroom and am in the process of fixing up my tole painting area so I can get back into painting.
