My VitaMix arrived!
Yesterday my friend Dee stopped by to pick me up as she wanted to make a hay run… to Little Rock she said! It was closer to Stuttgart! She’d not been there before and we got a smidge lost, but I added a waypoint to the farm once we found it on my trusty GPS. No getting lost next time! Route 3 Box whatever doesn’t work too well on a GPS. All in all a five-hour round trip, but it was a wonderful day for a drive, and there’s nothing I like better than tooling around on back roads out in the country.
It was dinnertime when we got back, so Dee ate with me while I lamented the fact that my new VitaMix hadn’t shown up while we were gone… but it had! The UPS guy had left it on the back porch and since he never does that, I didn’t think to look there. I checked my tracking number and that’s where it said it had been delivered. Good thing he noted that!
Sorry for the lousy picture. It’s still dark out and it’s always hard to take pictures in my kitchen anyway. Look at the size of the cookbook that came with it! I ran it through a cleaning cycle this morning, now that’s just darn cool! I can’t wait to try something in it.
I am down three pounds as of today, which is day eleven of my Primal/Paleo diet change. Tonight is my quilt group but I think I’m going to skip going out to dinner with them, as I’d be limited to a salad at the restaurant they chose, and I’m not a huge salad fan, at least not for dinner, as it never agrees with me that late in the day.
I am chomping at the bit hoping Jim gets to come home this weekend (for good, not a visit) as I am dying to go up and till the area on the land where we want to plant a spring garden. I know it’s a bit late to be tilling, but we weren’t here in the fall to turn the ground under. We should be able to rough till it now, then till it again right before planting and still get some of the benefits of turning all that stuff over.
