Well, Lily has finished her medicine and seems to be on the mend. She is in a much happier mood and its so nice to see her dancing around and being silly!


I spent the day cleaning and baking bread! There is a bake sale fundraiser tomorrow and I baked 5 loaves of bread for it. 3 Oatmeal Molasses and 2 loaves of 15 grain bread. Both are a favorite around here!

My poor oven is just about dead though! It's being held together with a bungee cord now!


The bolt on the oven door snapped off the other day and went flying!! Now the oven door drops to the ground when you open it and it won't stay closed. The front burner gets red hot then luke warm! So maddening! Especially when your cooking risotto, which takes a constant temp not to burn. The clock has said 5:47 for the last 11 years!
This old doll came with the house when we bought it 12 years ago, and it was 20 years old then!!



Those who know me, know that I cook a lot, a whole lot actually and I could use a second oven, but what I want, what I really really want is a nice cobalt blue 36 inch gas oven, 6 burners.. but its way too expensive!
After 2 trips to China, there is no way we can afford this right now.. or for a long while..


This is my dream.....




But this is my dream come true!!

I love this post because it is so true! Before kids we would buy whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted, because we could. And while sometimes I do miss not being able to satisfy those urges, that want for "things", all I have to do is listen to the giggles in the other room to remind me that all those things don't really matter any more. We have a roof over our head, food in the fridge, and the most wonderful people surrounding us. Life is pretty darn good.

***my ideal is a 48" Wolf gas range...just something about those red dials makes me want to cook up a storm!***

Oh my goodness I love it. The bungee cord, the yummy looking bread, the beautiful kiddos, the tie on the handsome boy, the blue stove...and what you have INSTEAD of the blue stove! Priceless and so worth a bungeecorded oven. :)
