An earlier than usual alarm sounded this morning just before the sunrise. Hubbie and I did chores and then headed south down the interstate to Chesnee,SC to look at the oven I called about Thursday. Traffic was light thankfully on the way down the mountain and we watched the sun rise and hoped the rain predicted for today would hold off until we could get the oven back home.
The oven retailed for $3399 and we paid $1695 for it and couldn't find anything but a small dent in the side which will be hidden in the cabinet . I feel like both were great deals and they come with the 1-year warranty all new appliances come with.
We got them loaded up, tied down and headed home. We made one stop at the Strawberry Hill shed to get fresh strawberries.
As we came up the mountain the clouds got thicker but we made it safely and dry and got the truck backed in the barn by 11:00.
We both hadn't eaten anything but breakfast bars this morning so we had an early lunch of left overs.
After lunch we went up to a green house in the Blantyre area of Transylvania county and got our garden plants. They have pretty good prices and their plants are supposed to be locally grown and very hardy for the area. Daughter met us there after her doctor's appointment where everything was okay for her. Speaking of doctor visits ,d-in-love sent me this pic of g-son at the emergency clinic this morning. He had a 102 fever, sore throat and felt really bad but they did all the flu and strep test and they all were negative so they assume he has a virus. Poor guy, not a good way to start spring break !
Hubbie tilled the garden to get it ready for planting when all this weeks predicted rain is over.
I planted a row of sugar snap peas that I had forgotten to plant last week.
I also cleaned out the flower beds around the porches and emptied some pots so I can be ready for more plants .
I have decided to plant some flowers seeds this year instead of buying alot of plants so if it is a dry summer I won't feel so bad if they die.
I also did the weekly 3 loads of laundry this afternoon.
After chores #1 son brought the kids up and helped hubbie get the new oven in place and hooked up.
My job was playing with the kids.
I am glad this guy is feeling a bit better and his sister loved having him push her on the swing.
I love the oven and both ovens work very well as I tried each to make sure they worked since it is a scratch and dent product.
I am very tired tonight but this has been a good first day of spring break week when I get a bunch of things done without babysitting duties on any days.
We got a pretty good short rain shower tonight but are hoping for more over night.
Thankful for the blessing of safe travel and for the blessing of family that is always willing to help.
God Bless and Good Night.
