The past week has been a ok. Besides from the great SFCD (stupid fucking computer day) fiasco, nothing too crappy has happened. We had a family birthday get together for my (now 16 years old) sister where every single sibling, niece and nephew was in attendance at the same time. We got in some.dinners with family members, had a night at the park with some littles for a moonlight play date, even got in a bit or light hiking with the pup. An all around pleasant sort of week.
As for this weekend so far… Not going to lie, I am a bit of a cranky pants. It started out ok. Yesterday morning I woke up super early, read for a little, then me and the pup went for a nice long walk and watched the sun come. My only complainant there was that I was wearing sneakers tha did not keep my feet warm so I was freezing. After getting home and unsuccessfully trying to warm my feet up, I went about getting to what I had planned doing. I got my baking stuff together and turned on the oven, only to realize after 10 minutes that the oven was not hot. MOTHER F ing FREAK!
Not again! Not a-freaking-gan. Luckly the mr was home and jumped to the rescue, well kind of. We pulled the sucker out from the wall and basically took it apart. It turns out that I have blown the igniter… again. Yup, this is the second stove, third time, that I have blown the little mechanism inside the stove that lights the fire to make it hot (And no, this stove will not let me manual light it for there is a build in safety lock or some shit) The third time! And this stove is only a year freaking old!
It's official, I am a stove killer.
So not havving a stove just threw out my days plans, plus dinner plans, not to mention I was still really cold and was counting on the stave for heat. And to top it all off, I did something to my back and am walking around in a constant state of pain. But the worst part is that the mr had to order the part and it's not coming in until monday. AAAAGGGHHH!
So today, tI don't even know. Again, I have oven plans, but not anymore. But I am determined to make today good.. No I will not be able to bake lots of bread and cookie, and maybe I might have to wear 5 sweaters and my wool socks plus slippers while in the houses, but it's cool. I won't let that ruin my day. I'll just boil some cinnamon sticks (at least the burners works) to make the house smell nice, make lots of coffee, grab my book (Mindy Karlings new book Why Not Me!) my knitting, and my big wool blanket and park it on the couch for the day.(When I think about it, it's proabaly going to a grew day!)
Anyways hows your weekend going? Cold yet? Have you tuned on you heat or have you been using your stove for warmth instead of tuning the heater on like me? Well, whatever your doing, I hope your enjoying it and that you are not freezing your butt off.
