Today we hit the shops

We have bought a new mattress

It is a Sealy, we just bought the mattress as we have a slat bed. It was $2199 on special for $1200

We also bought a Miele Vacuum cleaner, tried it already, works a treat...did a lot of research and they say this is better than some Dysons, so that is good and a fraction cheaper too!

I am sitting here crossing another K-cup off my list. Tulley's French roast. If there was ever a cup of coffee that would make me start using sugar, this is it. The first sip made me think of the bean that spends part of its time inside of monkeys...
And shortly I will be going back outside to look for my driveway.

Julie is not too bad, keeping up with Cleese is hard work...have to think fast around him, he keeps trying to give me a dead parrot.

i've been trying, time and again, all my life, to like yogurt. just couldn't pull it off. no matter how much fruit or blueberries i'd mix in there, that sourish-bitter yogurt taste would come crashing through, defeating my every masking attempt.
i feel finally liberated and...Happy. this first, virgin cup of chobahi's yogurt was layered at the bottom with passion fruit, but i can see there will be many, many yogurt cups ahead for me, with all kinds of fruits and berries, or with none at all.
i think i'm in love with the peculiar little man who followed his dream with a shut-down factory in upstate new york, and, in a few short years, built a giant yogurt empire, internationally known today.
he has succeeded in winning over yogurt-averse people, like me, and turning them into true believers and faithful customers. :)

so, here i am again, late to the game. but at least i do, in most instances, eventually, make it there.... .
Sitting in my fridge right now are two cups of greek yogurt from a new-to-me maker -- the brand is Liberte' -- and it's so good that it comes complete with guilt feelings. It can't be good for me, it tastes too good - like a dessert on its own. Shall I have the coconut or lemon next??
