#460: Stove

30 days of thanks: Day 14
I am thankful for my stove.
Being shown by my daughter's T'ai chi 'beautiful' hands.
I haven't had a stove since last spring.
The lemon we bought from Marine Home burnt out its
ceramic unit every year.
I got tired of paying for repair and thought I'd find
a used stove at Nantucket Reuse Exchange.
It was not to be.
Much as it goes against my inner Scotswoman,
I had to buy a new stove.
A toaster oven works for everything but a 17lb. turkey.

Isn't she beautiful?
I think I'll name her Bodacious.

First meal, lasagna.
Oh, it's been a looong time.
I don't need to wait for Thanksgiving to be thankful.
