An empty room with clean carpet is a good thing! I determined that before the Christmas tree could go up, the carpet had to be cleaned, so that's just what happened Monday. Of course, all that stuff from the living/dining areas had to be relocated, so that hampered movement around the house all day. No matter, the carpet looks new again (except for that coffee stain that we won't go into here, sigh). This morning the furniture went back in, and I'm going to be careful about the junk that goes in - at least for awhile. :) With eight people living here, the junk piles up fast!
My new kitchen buddy arrived the other day. Meet my new friend: Nutrimill
The grain mill I used last year was killed in an act of total oblivion and negligence on my part. With my Bosch mixer and grain mill side-by-side, I dumped the water intended for the mixer into the hopper of the mill. They're very similar looking and my mind was obviously elsewhere! That I could do such a stupid thing traumatized me for months and I couldn't consider buying another mill. But the holiday baking season is here, I realized that duty calls and cinnamon bread must be baked. I can't wait to get baking again!
The U.S. has had some awful weather the last few days and I hope all my friends who've had to endure it have come through safely!
