"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Perfect Moment Monday: Let Us Eat

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that "Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."
My new-to-me stove/oven/range (orwhateverthehellyouwanttocallit) is working. The temperature of the oven is absolutely perfectly calibrated. It only cost me $80 and 3 gallons of gas (2 trips to the Craig's List seller). The purchase and subsequent issues with this oven added the name and number of a scrupulously honest Craig's List seller to my address book. Not only am I cooking the first dinner in it, but I actually did all the diagnostics that figured out the problem and I switched the power cord from our old one to the new one. Yay me!



Go check out the other perfect moments at this week's Perfect Moment Monday on Weebles Wobblog.

I'm impressed that you found it, that you made it work, and that you got it calibrated!

Now I'd be REALLY impressed if I had one of your meals, FOR SURE.

thanks for stopping by, make sure to tell your hubs that Dead Snow is a great movie, it's subtitled but after the first few minutes you forget you're even reading it.
