Allergy Epiphany

We're all suffering through cedar season right now, and I would just like to point out that the word snot, reversed, spells the word tons. Lowbrow humor or literary truism -- you decide. All I know is that we've gone through a Costco-sized multi-pack of tissues this month.

And in an update to my previous post, I had no idea that a new double oven with convection would cost around $2,000. Talk about sticker shock. As a result, I'm taking my husband's advice and using the "see-if-your-hand-gets-burned" method of cooking right now. And I put a cheap oven thermometer on the rack so at least I'll have some idea of how to calibrate the temperature. At least I'm not cooking on an open fire with a cast iron kettle.

Yipes! $2000! Have you checked the Scratch n Dent superstore? Most of their defects are tiny and cosmetic only; we were pleasantly surprised at their nice selection and prices.

Oh, and I've been wondering since you changed your blog format: am I "friend", "family", "stranger", or "aquaintance"? Or maybe just a "strange aquaintance"? A "family friend"? Hmmm...the possibilities....
