Well woke up this morning with the excitement of a new stove and oven. The new stove arrived and the guys set it up and all seemed fine until they left, I set the clock and set the oven to bake. I got on the phone with my mom and waited for the oven to preheat. I finished my phone call and turned back towards the stove and low and behold the clock was not lit up anymore. OH MY GOODNESS!!! "Okay, okay do not panic," I said to myself. Be logical and check the breaker to see if it was blown. NO, that is/was not the problem. I have lots of baking to do before my surgery tomorrow but it is looking I am not going to get it done. I hope that this will not be the case. If I can't bake today oh well I will just have to do it next week and be really careful with my left hand. At least I am right handed and that hand is in decent working order. I am still recovering from carpal tunnel surgery on the right hand. Well at least I got my candy made, butter cookie dough mixed and shortbread is ready to bake. I will just have to do what I can and not worry about the rest. I will not stress over the things I can't do anything about. I have done what I can and now it is up to somebody else. I learned this lesson a long time ago do not stress over spilt milk. It won't get me a new stove and I just will feel awful and what would that accomplish? Absolutely nothing!!! So I guess I will just focus on mixing all of my cookie doughs which is what I really needed to do before surgery anyway. The baking can happen later and besides I still have the stove top to cook dinner or whatever until the new stove gets here. Hang, hang, hang the phone is ringing and I need a stove so wait I'll be right back.................... I just recieved a call and the new stove will come next Tuesday. Oh peaches I am sooooo excited all over again. Do you detect a slight bit of me being a little facecious? Well you would be right! And just a hair bit preturbed! Do you blame me? Heck no! If I was the average gal I would be taking a valium or something! But I am not the average gal I am just going to go on with the day ahead of me. Breath Melanie breath!
Well folks it is a beautiful day here on the ranch. The sun is shining, the sky is blue with a few clouds and a bit crisp out there. I happen to be indoors with a nice cozy fire going and pleasant music playing on the radio. There are so many things that I need to get done that there just isn't any time for idleness. FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS!!!!! Catch you all tomorrow. Loves, hugs and kisses.
Okay people I am back!!! My new stove seems to have a mind of it's own. Was there a short, is there a short? I could not say however the oven is back and I am going to give it a try. Temperature is set and baking here I come.
By the way I may not be able to type tomorrow so I might not be back for a couple of days. Please do not fret I will return with a lot to say. Love ya. Wish me a safe recovery.
