Mmm mmm good!
That gave me just the right amount of energy to head to the thrift store later on to see what treasures I could find. ;-)
and the dollar store
and W*M* (that's a dirty word around here. But that's another story.).
Stay tuned for my less than three dollar bathroom window treatment! Woo-hoo!!!

Yes I dared. No they didn't notice. In fact, Ari said, "these cookies are amazing".
Am I implying that sugar cookies can be healthy? No. Healthier? Maybe. With a little whole wheat flour thrown in and sipping a cup of healthy pomegranate rooiboos tea along with them, they can't be all that bad for you. Tee hee.
Join Rachel Ann and The Company Girl Coffee that she hosts on Fridays. (link above) Guess what I'm serving? You guessed it. Pomegranate rooiboos tea and sugar cookies!

Later in the afternoon, a visit from a handsome gentleman caller...
And just about the time I'm too tired to think anymore, a little work on a knitting project. [See the remote? I usually knit when the remote is in hubby's hand so I don't get too involved in the assortment of sports he watches (NOT!)]

Recently, hubby bought us a nifty cool new coffeemaker after we went out of town for four days and came home to find our coffee pot had never turned off like it was supposed to and had been HOT for those four days. (I knew it had been making weird noises.)
So, we got a Keurig.
It cost a pretty penny, ahem several hundred pretty dollars to be specific but hey, we like coffee.
This is our coffee station. Notice the nifty coffee K cup holer he found this past weekend...it rotates so you can load cups on both sides. We have decaf on one side and an assortment of regular on the other.
In less than a minute, we can have a steaming, fragrant cup of coffee.
This is the K up close for your viewing pleasure ;-)...
Our coffee habit has now become a more expensive habit.

The vintage model is in the cabinet that the new machine is sitting on...
I really want to figure out how to use the older model so I have a backup when necessary. I'm sure it's me and not the machine. Now excuse me please while I go sew...
It only looks like he's blowing, he's saying "noooo"...
