Failing the Apple Pie Test.


no stove

So oven.

This would be that infamous piece of equipment that was “tarred and feathered” in 10 years worth of grease and dog hair.  That same oven that I spent days and days cleaning and rehabilitating after we moved into this town home…

that one.

Well, it failed the apple pie test in spectacular fashion this past holiday, and after all that effort, I was forced to purchase a new range the day after Thanksgiving.  You could say the transaction was truly ‘a day late and a dollar short’…a day late because I could have used a good, working oven to bake my famous apple pie in, but a dollar short because at least my new oven was being offered at a fabulous Black Friday price.

So this week, I’ll be anxiously awaiting the delivery of my shiny new range.  Here’s hoping that the kitchen counters come in too so we can finally install the sink and the dishwasher! 👍

no sink

(Is that asking too much?)

    Oh Lenore, you are too sweet…you have such a positive outlook. 😎

    I lose that positivity at some point every few days, usually when I’m doing my dishes in the powder room sink- ugh. 😏 I thought about putting up a small tree or something Christmassy to raise my spirit, but that would be like decorating the inside of a garage at this point- HA! Oh well, it will all come together will… ✨


  3. It will be SO worth it when you’re done. I promise.
