BOOK BLURB: Fifteen-year-old Kari Rose discovers how much trouble she and her two sisters can get into when they stay at their ancient granny's for spring break. Granny gets a wild-haired notion at three in the morning, and she’s leaving with or without them. Kari makes the decision to take her sisters and ride with Granny in her old Cadillac on a five-hundred-mile-long trip north to visit family. Miles down the road, this harmless act finds Granny no longer able to drive, and Kari must take the wheel. Soon after, the four travelers are caught in a freeway-closing-down snowstorm which brings everyone and everything to a standstill. 

A second blizzard with catastrophic impact is about to descend upon them, and Kari must determine the best way to find shelter and beat the storm. Will Kari trust her gut instincts and rely upon a complete stranger to lead them to safety?

I really like these questions, and I'd like to chime in. If I were given a grant, it would be used for making us an elevator to the upstairs. We bought this house in July and, after looking for a new piece of property for eight months, we found this place. Although, it has stairs. And at my husband's and my ages, 72 and 66, we may eventually need a chair lift or something to get upstairs. I'd like to put one in before we HAVE to have one. Recently, we discovered we have space for a real elevator-type lift and it can be done for not a whole lot of money. :)

I would choose my kitchen because it truly is the heart of our home. I would incease shelving, add a pantry, have a huge farm table for family meals, have a farmhouse sink, and recessed lights and a pendant chandelier. Not to mention a huge built-in bookcase for my cookbooks!

1.  My entire house needs a makeover, but if I had to choose a room that needs to be remodeled is our kitchen. I would have to replace my ceiling because I have water stains and holes because the plummer was trying to find where the leak was.  I would have new granite counters put in and a tile floor put in.  Oh, and I cannot forget appliances.  Since this is the heart of the house..where all our meals are prepared this would be our dream.

If I had good friends visiting, I'd take them to Elements Restaurant in our town. They have great food served beautifully, and the setting is lovely. I think they'd enjoy it. It's a little pricey but not overly so.

1. If given a grant I would turn my garage into a family room. 

I would redecorate the kitchen.  It needs it desperately.  I would gut the place and put in solid woods cabinet with the bottoms in red (my favorite color).  I would have open wood shelving on top.  I would like either quartz counters or butcher block.  I would love an Aga stove or a vintage looking stove along with matching fridge.  I would take the cubby where the washer and dryer are currently located and have it redone for the fridge to provide more counter space.  As you can tell, I have thought about this.  Happy Holidays!

(1) Redecorate my kitchen by adding more counter space and cabinets.
