Wrong

Well, a few things went wrong, and I was wrong about a thing or two, so my photo represents putting things into perspective. Hubby was so tired he forgot to get the things I wanted him to shop for. So we did not have the meal I wanted and he wanted for breakfast. That was wrong, but not deliberate. I was wrong about the herb class. It is next week, but I am going to Oklahoma. That is okay. I am going to a ladies' luncheon there for some fun. The weather is stormy. All of our electrical power went out. I was going to cook something in our gas stove, but that was wrong. Newer gas stoves have electronic ignition. I could not get here to myLot, due to no power, either. Plain old wrong. We seem to be on the right track now. Supper is in the oven and I am online, because the power has been restored. I am thankful for all of our modern conveniences, and I miss them when they are not working. I am thankful to have power back on. I will be checking in some more with all of you.

Hubby had a monitor go out, then after being out over a month, we had an outage last Thursday and when the power came back it did too. How weird.

I don't know about your stove, but when I had a gas stove with electronic ignition (two houses ago) I could light the burners with a match when the power was off. Never tried the oven, though.

I was needing the oven. I did not try the burners. In the oven it seemed not to even let the gas through once the electric went off.

@GardenGerty Same with the one I had. But the burners let the gas through, so I was able to have my tea.

@BarBaraPrz A hot beverage goes a really long way toward making things right.

I think there's still a way to light a gas stove even without an electric ignition, like using a match to light the flame on the burner. It may vary by stove though. Are things "more right" today?

Oh, I posted this today, and the power went out again right after I did. I had the oven on, but when the electric went down it went out.

@GardenGerty Oh, how frustrating! So it needs the electricity to stay on too?

@spiderdust Yes, it does. I think something about the flue allowing gas through.

Right after I posted the power went off again, my lasagna quit cooking. I put it in an ice chest to cool down so I would not get food poisoning cause it was not done. We went to one of the towns nearby and ate and shopped for the food he forgot.

It is nice to have the rain, though. My power went back out for a while.

@peachpurple No, it was not a lightning strike that cause the outage, but was strong wind at the local power station.

Our power doesn't go out often but it's a real inconvenience when it happens. You don't even have a light to read by.

That is right. There was at least some light coming in the doors if I opened them.

@RubyHawk Our power came back just before dark. I think if it had not I would have just gone to bed.

Times like this, make you appreciate the times things are working well, and Hey even when things are not working as well as you think they should, there is always something else out there for you to be Thankful for.

You are correct, If I look I can find something to be thankful for.

Sometimes it seems the Fates conspire against you and nothing goes right. Glad you have power back on now.
