Appliances! 

I haven’t said much about our appliances because they are often so utilitarian. 

But wait. 

Here’s what: I got the most basic of all stoves because cooking is a necessity. I have a glass top stove in the Savannah house that we are renting out and I really never enjoyed it. 

We went to pick out the stove and the guy started at the very top of the line. I think he saw my eyes start to cross because clearly I wasn’t interested. 

“Show me the cheapest, bottom of the line model. You know, the one with the burner squiggles like I grew up with.”

We walked past every single stove, oven, drop in, freestanding and whatever else. It was even a little dark in the corner of the cheapest stove known. 

It stood, in all its basic glory, beckoning to me. “Let’s cook…..or not,” it said. This square metal thing spoke my language. If it had said, “No, wait, let’s just eat out!” I would have wrapped my arms around it and kissed it right smack in the clock. Here’s my little cheap friend. So basic. Not showy. No filter either. What you see is what you get. We were meant to be. I’ll tell you about the dishwasher while Ninja Man measures whatever he’s measuring underneath the cheapest stove known to man. 

The dishwasher is the ONLY thing we kept out of the original disgusting house. Ninja Man assured me it was new. So new, in fact, he’s not sure it was even used. I made him check it from stem to stern to be absolutely certain there was nothing disgusting about it. He did and he has proclaimed it perfect. Now that fridge is a whole ‘nother story. 

I saved money on the stove, got a free dishwasher so the fridge was my splurge. 

Did I get the one that will text me when we run out of cheese? No. I’m not THAT bad off. But I did get one with some features I will use all the time. There’s a water and ice dispenser on the left door but that right side… ohhhhh.  It does THIS. Ok, now don’t be thinking that’s my actual fridge. This is a screenshot from the interwebs. The ACTUAL one has no food in it yet. We just got plumbing and electrical finished so I haven’t felt good about having food stored on temporary power. 

But THAT LITTLE DOOR Y’ALL!! Isn’t it the cutest? I know. I’m gonna be playing house big time. 

“Would you like some ketchup with that?” My guest will look up from their coffee, confused, but quickly realizing I’m in my playing-house mode and they will completely understand. We will then discuss where to go to dinner. (They will know my stove is mostly decoration). 

There’s a water heater which irritated us because it had to be here- then moved there- then had to be covered like this and that. Just heat the water. You have ONE job water heater. 

There’s a built in microwave too. I have no clue what it looks like or what it cost. I was busy hugging the refrigerator and hubby just went to aisle 12 or somewhere and came back with a microwave. It was all very magical. 

What’s next at Six Little Acres? Oh, we never know. But we are very eager to get in there and call it home! 

Thanks for stopping by! Please pray for Wren (on FB: Hope for Wren)

God bless.

  1. Hi Kathy, I stumbled across your blog yesterday and read every single entry. First of all, you are SO FUNNY! I love how you write! And your doublewide is gorgeous. My family and I are paying off a home in a small town but it is my dream to some day sell and buy a doublewide in the country (and be debt free!) that we can renovate and make beautiful just like yours! So happy to see someone else realizing this journey. It breaks my heart for your little granddaughter, sending prayers and well wishes to her and your family.
