This week has been one for shopping. I wrote about my wedding outfit/shoes shopping in Thursday Potpourri: Spotlight Home and Family.
While I was out shopping, I circled around to the kitchen items. (Yes, I was in Target).
A few years ago, my daughter “borrowed” my blender, and I have yet to get it back. She does that…with appliances, and cookbooks (she says “you don’t cook, so you don’t need it”). Who knows what else has ended up at her place?
So…I wanted a blender, and since I’m not getting my original one back, here’s what I came home with. I love red…in appliances, etc. Note: my March page of the Mary Engelbreit calendar, a favorite that I buy each year. I also see that the top of my stove has lots of spices, etc. It almost seems as if I cook. LOL.
And here’s my red coffee pot, toaster, and a full mug of coffee:
The thing about buying new stuff…I have to clear out the old, and clean…and then rearrange everything. So there is a method to my madness.
Today I want to make a smoothie for lunch.
I just finished It Happens All the Time…(click title for my review), and I couldn’t stop turning the pages. It was not a thriller, but it was a story about sexual dynamics and friendship. I wasn’t sure how it would end. I must say that I was a little sad about the ending for one of the characters…but it was a book that will make me ponder the nature of sex and friendship.
What are your weekend plans? Do you ever shop for new kitchen stuff, just for fun, or because you have done without an appliance for a few years and now miss it. Desperately?
