30 Day Challenge~~Thanksgiving~~Day 19....

Cat, at The Whimsical Gardener, has challenged us to a 30 Day Challenge of Thanksgiving.
A post a day, for 30 days, to celebrate the things we are thankful for, in our lives.

~~Day 19~~

Today, I'm thankful for my new oven.

This is what we had, when we moved in.
I took this picture on one of our tours through the house, prior to buying.
No push buttons here.  Turn a knob for the microwave.  Hope the oven gets warm in time.

We redid a lot of things here.
I stripped the cabinets.  Ones you can't see here, were green.
I stripped wallpaper off, and textured and painted.
I put in a new tile backsplash.
We had granite countertops, a new sink and a new cooktop installed.

But, the micro/oven worked.  So, we waited.
We decided we could just use this vintage model.

This week...we had this installed.

You'll notice it's shorter than the old one.  Gives me a shelf under it.
We just need to finish it out.
The new technology doesn't require as thick insulation.

New and shiny...we've moved into the twenty-first century.
Just in time for the holidays.

There'll be some bakin' goin' here!
Everybody's thankful.



  1. Congratulations on the new oven! Your kitchen looks nice.

  2. I would be thankful too, if I were driving my your place when that baking is going on. You waited a long while!


I love your comments. Thanks for dropping by.
