The World’s Most Beautiful Kitchen…

When I moved into my current home in Suffolk, it was my intention to stay in this house until I breathed my last. And it did work out that way - sort of. On September 5th, 2018, I was carried out of my house and transported to a local ER when - despite the efforts of the medical staff - I bled out, had a heart attack and died.

The heart attack had nothing to do with my heart - except basic hydraulics. When there’s not enough hydraulic fluid in the system, the pump shuts down.

When my heart stopped, I popped out of my 59-year-old body like toast out of a toaster. As I floated away, I had the time of my life - literally. Nonetheless, as my buddy Dales says, heaven sent me back.

Subsequently, I came to realize that I wasn’t living my life the way God intended. I had been miserable. Lying in the hospital bed for five days, I had time to think and reflect and I decided that I had to make some big changes. And I did.

Now I’m planning to move to the Midwest, and as part of this new life, I spend way too much time looking at Midwestern houses for sale, and I have found my dream kitchen.

Enjoy the pictures below, and if you are in the Williamsburg area on Saturday, come to my talk about my “temporary death experience” at 11:00. More information here.

    Hi, dear Rosie. The kitchen does look like culinary perfection. Unfortunately, we have to be logged in to view the property on Zillow.

    In your last caption, did you mean “kitchen?”

    Wow, I sure did! Thanks for catching that. I’ve fixed it now. Sometimes, I wonder what exactly is going on in my brain! :)

    I had no idea you had this experience! Was I not paying attention, or had you not mentioned it?

    I’m certainly happy you came back! I had a similar “temporary death experience” this week when my friend told me his sister tore out the original metal cabinets in the 1950s house she just bought!

    I begged him to tell me she had them donated to ReStore, even if she didn’t, just lie to me!

    Don’t forget to look up the Alton Franciscans.

    They have one of the largest novitiates (sisters-in-training) in the US.

    I’m a weirdo who is terrified of gas stoves, but it is a great kitchen!

    The blue and yellow remind me of sunny days at the beach! I think it is an overall nice house.

    I’m a sucker for dormers and a garage is always great! (When you don’t have to scrape frost off the windshield in the morning, you can give the snooze alarm an extra push! :) )

    Good Luck at your talk! I’m sure it will go great and your story of heaven and healing will bring hope to others.

    Your new adventure should include a new challenge - designing a new kitchen within a reasonable budget for the older house.

    HGTV and This Old House wont have any interest in your project but we enjoy following your updates on “Rosemary’s Dream Kitchen Renovation”

    Rosemary, I attended your talk today in Williamsburg, spoke to you afterwards briefly about writing your book.

    I forgot to mention that you have already written the book, and you just read it to us.

    It’s all on tape for you to transcribe. Now I’m looking forward to reading it from the page.

    Thank you again for sharing your amazing experiences.

    Marnah
