Ah, are these summer days dragging on at lightening speed or what? The joy and the pain of recent events are as follows.
Our oven died. I freaked out when the chicken still wasn’t done by 8 in the evening. Thought I was blinder than I had imagined and upset, I reset the oven. Yah, No. The bottom element was cold. So the first week we replaced that. Then we replaced a switchy relay thinger. Then we called in a fix it friend. And now we’re waiting for the Sears repair guy between 8 and 5 on Tuesday.
Tried making oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies in the narrow side oven. All that fits are these pans. Eamon called it an “epic failure”. It was a soak and scrape endeavor.
Fiona got a present from Mum Mum. Exer-saucer!!
The garden gave us some stuff to pick. Figs and a cucumber and grape tomatoes.
We beat the heat by hopping into Brianna’s pool.
Or sliding into it.
And we got to reconnect with some long time friends. Grateful.
There were a couple other “events” that were good enough to require their own posts. Stay tuned. And pray for my oven.
