The oven works!

I was right, it was the oven temperature sensor. $17+ dollars with a 2 week wait for the part to come into the local appliance store and 5 minutes to put the new part in. YAY.

To celebrate, I made 5 apple and 2 pumpkin pies for dinner Sunday. :)

Finally! The weather in this area of Virginia has been wonderful the last week or so. Not too hot, not too cold, perfect fall weather. I like it when it does not get above 80 during the day and stays above freezing at night. Of course, as soon as I remove the air conditioners, it will probably get warm again...

Stink bugs!


They are everywhere this year. My kids rooms (on the second floor of the house), the ceilings have many stink bugs. They have found their way into my home office/ hubby's workshop. I have killed a dozen today and there are still more in my office. ARGH!
