Gratitude~Day 20

I am grateful I was not planning to cook Thanksgiving Dinner this year!
You ask why???
Tonight while cooking a meatloaf I realized that the oven was not working correctly!  Not heating like it should!
YIKES!!
It is over 10 years old and was in the house when we bought it.  So the Mr. will take a look tomorrow and see what's what! 
Just very grateful this guy isn't waiting on me this year!  I'll be having Turkey with friends on Thursday!  

Hugs,
Linda

Hey having a stove conking out can be a good thing - either you get to quit cooking or you get a new stove.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

That happened to me a few days before Thanksgiving several years ago. I BEGGED the service guy to come out and they did! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, XOXO

Sorry! I remember many years ago when my oven acted up on Thanksgiving - not good. :(
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving despite the stove.

I spent 4 months having to pull my stove out and unplug it after every time I used it. That is not convenient! Then, for no apparent reason, it went back to normal. I want a stove that has no electronics on it whatsoever! ~ Maureen

Sorry to hear about your stove, but now you get to have Thanksgiving with others and maybe even a new stove!! Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends. Just sitting around the table catching up and enjoying each other!! And eating good food! Alllll day long :-}}
