Houston, We Have Lift-Off!

Here is a picture of the new Bosch stove about where it will finally go. The gas was hooked up today and we just plugged it in to an existing outlet for a "test run". Our old electric stove is, sadly, been placed on the back deck, in the rain, awaiting either a new home or recycling.
I was holding out for a dual fuel unit until we saw this Bosch gas convection oven unit on sale. And it only took half an hour for me to figure out how to set the clock! :-)
Tomorrow is Electrical Day with Ralph and an electrician friend putting in new outlets. Most of the outlets that are to be wired are of over and under cabinet lighting. Cool. Just as long as the dishwasher gets installed and we can get the cabinets in soon. (We have to wait on some of this due to one cabinet lost during shipment and the pantry unit being crushed during shipment.)
We stopped early today to have dinner and watch the beginning of the new "Survivor" series. We must plan around good TV you know. ;-)
I feel as though I have been neglecting the sheep-folk here at "Oleo Acres" (One of the Cheaper Spreads), but we had rain most of the day today and they preferred to stay inside - to eat and sleep.
Must be nice...

Oh, Beautiful new range - and Bosch is a very good brand - I had to get a new range two years ago when the cats brought a rat in (live, of course) and it made a little home between the GAS cook top and oven and started chewing on the wires - off went the electric & the gas! The new one we bought has a sealed back on it - No more rats in my range (LOL) Wish I was there to help you bake some brownies in that new stove... Tina

I wish you were here, too, Tina! We'd sure put you to work! :) I am really looking forward to trying out the oven and cooking on this. And to have a dishwasher will be nice - our 28 year old dishwasher went to NZ and the 56+ one won't work worth a damn on the dishes - or works only under duress.

I'm pretty lucky - since I do the cooking - JP does the dishes - and don't be fooled by Neelix and Sinda - they only LOOK peaceful...LOL :-) T.

I was keeping out of Ralph's way. He was doing the electrical work and the guy who built this place had the wierdest circuits of anything he'd seen. It was stay out of his way or divorce court. :)
