Babe, we can't be having any of that foolishness. You have to take better care of yourself. There would be a very big empty spot in DC if you weren't with us. You are such an important part of us. You need to keep sugar at your side at all tiimes. In the meantime here are some xoxoxoxoxoxox and {{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}} to go along with every best wishes for a great holiday for you. We all love you and worry about you.

I have been busy cooking and cleaning, getting ready for TB's parents and brother to come for lunch tomorrow.

Since TB will be vacuuming in the morning, I decided to give the "kids" one of their presents early. I didn't get a picture of the toys before I handed them over, but they were a cute little stuffed chicken and pig, each with a "donut style body. The pictures show each of them working on the chicken, and Violet flaked out after the "hard work".

Very cute, LP.
And way to take advantage of someone else cleaning up the stuffing, lol.

I am sitting here watching a WWII documentary on Stalingrad, trying to pick out the various military weapons... and enjoying my first cup from my Keurig.

Pac, let me know what you think of your Keurig. We are considering getting one since our Tassimo was recalled and then never worked with the new part.

As for the dogs, I did pick up most of the large pieces of stuffing, that were in my range (can't go under the table) but the small stuff can be picked up with the vacuum. The toys they get today have no stuffing. Just a lot of squeakers which is what Violet wants. She gets bored with a toy once she has removed it and we take it away. So her new one has 19! Joie just loves to suck on the fabric so he has a stuffing free bird with big wings and one squeaker! I love watching them play like that!

It's nice. That's the first time I've had the smell of fresh brewed coffee in the house for a while. I have no qualms at all about the way it works. I set the machine on 6oz and ran it twice through the same K-cup to fill my mug with a little room left over for milk. And the commercial model isn't supposed to have the water pump problems of their platinum series. If it lasts like it should I'll be a happy camper.
One thing I did not realize is the machine needs turned on to heat the water for the first cup. Not a big deal, but I always assumed it had an instant water heater. I can turn it on as I head out the door in the morning and by the time I come back in and am ready for that first cup it will be more than ready. Just don't walk out to the kitchen first thing thinking you'll be drinking a cup of Joe in 30 seconds if the machine isn't already on. And a small gripe, at least with my model and my kitchen sink, is that it takes a bit of finagling to get the water reservoir to sit just right in my sink so I can turn the water on and leave it while it fills. Minor, but noticeable. Overall I'm happy with it so far. I just need to find the right blend. I already know I don't like the Green Mtn Breakfast blend as much as the Donut Shop blend. I started rating them on a piece of paper so I can keep track

Leave the reservoir in place and use a pitcher to fill it...

welcome pac, it'sso nice to have a new person to talk 'keurig' with. regarding the water tank, i personally find it much easier to bring the water to the tank, than the other way around. i just remove the top, and pour bottled or tap water directly into it. as much coffee as i drink, i'm doing this several times in the course of a day.

i'm glad you mention the donut shop coffee blend. it is described somewhere as being a fresh, no-nonsense coffee most like you might be served at a diner. i agree--unpretentious, straight-up good, honest, no-frills coffee--especially good in the donut shop xtra bold. i'm not surprised at your not being impressed with the breakfast blend. i bet it's popular with those 'occasional' coffee drinkers though.

i'm not familiar with the keurig model you bought, pac. what size is its reserve water tank? i think 60 oz. is the largest tank available. i use the mug setting on my keurig, 10 oz., i think. but you will probably get a more intense brew using the 6 oz. setting twice. all of that, the size and coffee flavors, is just a matter of trial and error.

i hope you continue to find more good and fun things to enjoy about your keurig. since you will be using your own coffee brand(s) you will be missing out on one of my favorite keurig excersizes--that of trying and selecting different and new coffee blends. i'll be interested to hear how you like using the 'my' k cups, and how well they work. have fun with your new toy, pac....:)
