Happy Independence Day to my Spark Friends!
I'm still not loving this cold that found me and actually am beginning to sound a bit like a barking seal, but it is what it is! After breakfast we headed out to look at a used double oven that appeared to be a very good deal. We've been looking for quite some time and finally have that task checked off. Here's the "new" one:
Our JennAire was about 30+ years old and we were beginning to question the consistency for baking and it had a few other things broken within the panel so it was time. This one is only about 6-7 years old and is a Whirlpool Gold with a top convection oven. I haven't had one of those since the early 80's! Will have to relearn about them. So our afternoon was spent installing this which meant cleaning for me after moving out the old one and pulling the frig out of the way.
Brought my dad over for a few hours and he enjoyed watching the kids play on the slip n slide for a time and all the activity inside with the oven.
There is a nice breeze and thunderstorm moving in so that might affect fireworks this evening. We'll see! We didn't buy much.
BL Challenge - Team Emerald: Today was our Week 3 weigh-in and I was able to say I lost some ounces. I am looking forward to seeing how my new "diet" affects the scale in the coming weeks.
