Well, actually not here yet,
We ordered this in black.
When do you get it, you ask?
Delivery date is
A party at my house for 30 + people next Saturday night.
All the Christmas baking
(which is really no big deal, I don't bake much anyway)
Christmas dinner at my house for a family of 19.
You might say,
Why Cathy, how are you going to do all that with no stove?
I have answers.
1. Electric Roasters
2. Electric skillets
3. Crock Pots
6. Jenn's stove next door
7. Cold dips
8. Kids that do have stoves and do bake
9. The local bakery
I think we have the holidays covered.
What prepares us for all of this?
A brief story.
One time, about six years ago,
we organized a mission trip.
1. Bought the tickets,
2. Arranged for lodging,
3. Hired a cook.
The cook never materialized.
JWS and I cooked for 30 people for two weeks
in a Third World Country
on three burners
on an old gas cookstove.
It was an experience I will never forget.
I still make about the best fried plantains you will ever eat.
Not to brag, but people have told me that.
You just can't buy plantains very often
in rural Western Pennsylvania.
they don't have a lot to compare them to.
Quick sewing project.
I found this handkerchief at a antique mall last summer.
Loved the colors.
Brought it home and laid it on this pillow and there it stayed.
actually it fell off regularly.
I sewed it on.
And more progress on the penny rug for my table.
This is almost the never ending job.
Another row of red the whole way around and then I think I cut enough for two more rows of green.
This may have to wait until after Christmas.
I have a few other gifts that need done.
