Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice"
to the Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Tara, Betsy, Dana, Beth, and Anna

and for nurturing our writing lives.
We are nearing the end of our kitchen remodel. Can you hear my shouts of joy? We've had the best contractor, and today only marks week five of the project. My appliances were installed today and it's all good, but I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. You see every appliance has a manual that I need to read in order to understand how to effectively use it. I'm sure that I'll eventually figure out each appliance, but right now it feels like a steep learning curve (and I kind of miss my old familiar kitchen friends). So I'm starting with the microwave (baby steps, right?). When I looked at all the buttons on it, I laughed. Can it really do all those things with the push of a button?
The best part - it's a microwave drawer that glides open with a small pull on the handle. It closes the same way, one small push and it glides closed. Items are loaded from the top rather than the front. And when I went to take a photo just now, I couldn't resist giving it a little pull to watch it glide out. That's when I discovered a handy guide to the buttons on the top of the drawer. No more looking for the manual to use the microwave. I think a woman designed this appliance.
Today the microwave, tomorrow the dishwasher!
