I put the order in on 2/6 to Penzeys Spices and got it already today in the mail. I also recieved a free ground cumin (1/4 cup jar) and a free Old World spice (1/4 cup jar). I told them that it had been a while since my last order and did they have my credit card on file and she said that they did not keep the card numbers for our safety.

I'm just counting myself lucky (but still keeping my fingers crossed) about the pump on the water system. I was putting in a load of wash, tub was about half full, when the water just stopped. My first luck was that the guy was on a call not far from my house and it only took him about 45 minutes to stop by. The second bit of luck was that the pump was not dead; I got away with just the charge for a service call. Could have been a whole lot worse. Don't ask me what he did -- it all looks like magic to me.

Now where shall I spend all the money I saved?

i know that was meant to be a rhetorical question, but here's a thought anyhow--put the money toward a 'k' purchase: kindle, keurig, or ka.

All good ideas, V! I must admit that I painted myself into a corner re buying myself a ka mixer -- you know, in hopes I could leave it to my daughter one day. I was telling her about those new colors you mentioned a while back to see which one would most appeal to her. She still wants one, and now if I do buy one, especially just what she wants, I'll feel plain old selfish using it, her not knowing why and all, me knowing she'll have to wait. Of course, her birthday will be coming up this fall, so....

The keurig -- Truth be told, I'm not really fond of coffee and think I'm just in love with the idea of a single cup maker. Bottom line -- my $$ would probably be better spent somewhere else. And I'm just not ready for a kindle. (I wasn't ready for a microwave for a long time but now don't think I could live without it.) Dither, dither.

Pardon me while I betake myself to the counting house - might as well count it if I'm too stingy to spend it.

Well it is a bright, sunny Sunday morning here and I am feeling good

This morning we are going for a drive through the foothills, too nice a day not to get out and about for awhile!

I didn't want a Kindle either, tin. So last year, I turned one down for Christmas. This year, my sweetie gave me a Samsung Galaxy tablet. It's much more than just a reader and I love it. I'm using it right now

I just finished making a batch of seasoned pita chips and hummus. I'll put those away and then start dinner. We are going to a play tonight so we'll be eating a little early.

I love all my Kindles. Just got DH and me each the Paperwhite, what a cool little device!

We just got back from Costco. They recently opened a new one 45 minutes away. Sure beats the 3+ hour drive to the next closest one! Filled up the trunk with all sorts of stuff, including organic coconut oil! Forgot the lightbulbs.

I find there comes a time when I am done shopping, I am DONE SHOPPING. That's it. No mas.
