Looking on the Bright Side

I ordered a new stove this summer.  The white one that I have is 20 years old, and at least one burner doesn't work properly.  All my other kitchen appliances are black and the range hood is stainless and black, so a stainless and black stove seemed perfect.  Until the new stove wouldn't fit by 1/4 inch.  There is a lip on the cabinet edge that was stopping it.  I sent the one I ordered back.  Then I had the adventure of getting my money back.  That was in July.

Since then we had the handymen move the cabinet a quarter of an inch.  It appears that perhaps the floor settled a bit over the years and that is why the new stove wouldn't fit.  In the way of things, the stoves had gone back up in price and so I didn't get one right away.

This weekend though, the prices were back down.  It was possible that if we waited, they would get even cheaper, but where is the fun in that?  We stopped by and ordered a new stove on Saturday.  I anticipate this coming Saturday getting a new stove.  It should be very much like the old one except for the color.  I hope all the burners work properly. 

I am trying to think of an appropriate name for this stove.  The old one is Cinders.  Maybe the new one could be Rella.
