I have the Nuwave pro oven.. it takes little space, a gift from my daughter..and easy to clean/ dishwasher safe if you have one... other how cleans in a couple of min..

 it is awesome, it cook/bakes easily.. also has a delay switch/timer to cook and I used it tonite to bake some pot pies, set it for 45 min  delay and bake for 30 and after our  coffee session my dinner was done and nice and hot..... NUWAVE.com will show you the uses for it///  gmakitty

Scattered showers and t-storms prdeicted everyday. My grass and garden and weeds love it. 

I think I need to get a new A/C/furnace. Mine is 17 years old and has a glitch that doesn't seem to be fixable. I don't want to go into cold weather worrying about whether or not I'll have heat. My dishwasher is acting up, too. So I've been washing the dishes by hand. That's not such a bad thing - just inconvenient. DS is going to try to fix it for me.

Good Morning

Today is a holiday in

Parts of the UK not Scotland

Beginning of the month

To the forecast & it said it will

Be a nice day so set up the machine

To come on this morning & guess what

It raining so 1st load done & can’t put

It out hoping it will brighten up later

I thought to do it today as I had a

Call & tomorrow between 8-1 the

Engineer will come to service the

Boiler so have to move stuff out to give

Him room plus the casing around the

Bottom or the boiler it will be the 1st

Service since we put a unit in the room

Next to the freezer which I have fabric on

So we see how this works or I know Greg

He will be saying it has to come out of there lol

My back is really hurting this morning

So not sure if I will get to do too much

I finished the last book in the trilogy

I was reading I may go back & read

Some of the trilogy ones by Wanda

Brunstetter plus a Cindy Woodall I

Moved these out of my read folder

To the ones to read on the kindle

Wishing you a Blessed Day &

Week whatever you may be doing

Take care

Good Morning

Hope you are wide eyed &

Bushy tailed this morning I

Got a good night’s sleep as

I took my sleeping tablet

I was naughty yesterday as

I have Wool & Needles III by

Primative Gathering & I was

Looking on the Fat Quarter shop

Site & they had some Jolly Rolls

Of this 42 pieces of 5 x 10 so

I have ordered two packs to help

With whatever design I do with this

Flannel fabric I am just hoping that

The import duty won’t be too expensive

I may not have done it if I could get this

Fabric easily over here can in yardage

If they have it in stock but these are ready

Cut so will save time for me lol
