Sorry I’ve been a little MIA since Monday’s delicious Ginger and Pear Butternut Squash Soup post. Truth be told, this week has not been great. I don’t know if it’s this Wisconsin winter that has no end or the fact that my hair is all about static these days (and don’t forget the pale, dry skin!), but this time of year has me dreaming of spring. So in Thursday Things format, here’s what I’ve been up to lately.
1. I’ve finally cleaned my coffeemaker!
Before you go all Martha on me, let me tell you what this machine has gone through. It’s almost 7 years old. It got Brenton and I though college and this cruddy old thing was how I got addicted to coffee. After all that, you’d think we could show it a little more love. But no. It hasn’t been cleaned this whole time until this week (ok, we have cleaned the pot but not the actual machine). I actually used this Capresso Cleaning Solution.
Basically it’s a powder that you dissolve in water and you run it through your coffee machine. This really helped get rid of the grime and anything that was left behind we whipped away with a paper towel. I’d have to say, I really think our coffee tastes better now that we’ve cleaned the machine.
2. Tuesday was a treat. The day started out with me checking my personal email (of course). Well I guess someone else had the same idea because my account was on lockdown due to their attempt to break into my account. After a solid 30 minute freak-out, I was able to get back into my account and change my password.
Well, later that same day I was driving down the interstate and a stone hit my windshield and it cracked! Thank goodness a repairman could drive to my house and fix it.
3. To cheer myself up, and anyone else who’s having an off week, here are some cutie-pie pics of Oliver. Enjoy!
What a good sport :)
Question: Have you been having an off-week too? What happened? Feel free to vent/complain. This is a judgment-free zone!
