I Will Get the Hang of This, Right?

So far we’re adjusting relatively well to the space. It’s really not much different than the space we were in previously but it is set up quite differently. Now what I’m definitely still trying to get use to is working with a 30 amp set up. Basically, I have to turn the AC off before I use anything. Yep, just about everything (bigger items, like the microwave and Keurig) will trip the breaker unless the AC is turned off. I’m slowly getting used to it, now that I’m learning what won’t work with the AC on, lol. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve tripped that breaker since we moved in, lol.

Something else I’ve learned is that our induction plate gives off a high frequency noise that only our kids can hear and get a headache from when it is set on the highest settings, 7-9. Most things I don’t need to use that high of a setting anyways so it’s normally not a problem. What I do need a high setting for, though, is to boil water for things like noodles. In that case, I’ve learned to use the stove top. Sure, it uses the propane but it’s so worth it since it takes less time. I will say though that I’m thankful it hasn’t been too terribly hot in here this summer, I totally wouldn’t have been able to cook with those flames, lol.

Now that I’ve shared those learning experiences, I want to share the stove cover my hubby made for me. We found the board at Lowe’s for a good price so all he had to do was sand and seal. It took a few days for him to finish but I am super thrilled to have it. It fits PERFECT! I can cook AND have a little counter space, yeee! Isn’t it pretty??? It really comes in handy when I’m doing the dishes also, I have room to set them all over there. Yep, totally doing a happy dance, haha. (Please excuse my jar of coffee grounds, haha.)


Author: The Rutherford Adventures

Hi! I'm Amanda, a wife, caregiver to my Parkie hubby, homeschooling mom of three and recently have become a soap making enthusiast. My hubby and I have had many an adventure over the years, our most recent being homesteaders in a small rural area of Alabama. We currently have chickens, a dairy goat we've lovingly named Georgia, three young Hereford pigs, a livestock guardian named Snow whom our children adore and two spoiled cats named Felix and Emma. Soon, we plan on embarking on our biggest adventure to date, an extended cross country trip around the United States. Our longest trip was a two week trip to New York and Canada and I thought that was long! So, thank you in advance for visiting my blog, my first by the way! I hope I have something to offer to my readers. Happy reading!
