Our oven has been broken all summer. I finally had a repairman come yesterday. He took it apart and didn’t have the right piece to fix it, so he put it back together with the old piece and was going to come back later. Well, when he turned it on, it started working again! SOOOOO this morning, Annie and I went to Walmart and I loaded my cart with ALL KINDS of baking junk! We got pumpkins so I can have pumpkin seeds (my whole desperate reason for having the oven fixed). Annie loved helping me scoop out the seeds.
While the seeds were cooking, I was making a double batch of banana bread. Little did I know that THE OVEN HAD STOPPED WORKING AGAIN!!!! AAARRRRGGGGHH!!!! So, I finished cooking the seeds in the toaster oven. I called Linz and she saved the day by helping me with the baking part. I got on Emmy’s scooter and drove like this to Lindsey’s, laughing all the way. I looked ridiculous……aaaaaand I kind of crashed when I got there.
It’s days like this (almost every.single.day) that the thought of moving tears my heart into tiny pieces. First Linz saved the day with her oven. Then all these cousins were just running to each other’s houses and playing all afternoon. I love it with every bit of my soul.
