It's been pretty cold the last few days and it's also been windy, which really makes it pretty uncomfortable to be outside. Those of us who live in colder climates know that the wind can make all the difference.
It used to be buy this time in the Winter my body had adjusted to the colder weather and being outside wasn't so hard. These last 5 years or so it's taken me longer and longer to get used to it!
Although I have lived in and loved this state all of my life, and will always consider myself a Michigan-girl, I am no longer adverse to moving to a warmer climate. I always tell Shauna that I'm ready when they are! They would have to move, too, because I don't want to be away from my grandsons!
Anyway, at least we don't have a ton of snow right now!
I bought this Ninja blender about 6 months ago. It's pretty powerful so it has suction cups on the bottom to keep it steady while it's blending. The problem is I have to put my finger underneath and break the suction and pick it up every time I move it, which is pretty much every day to make my morning smoothie!
I saw this little appliance caddy on the internet so I thought I would order it from Amazon and give it a try. It is mostly advertised for coffee makers that have to be moved to fill, but I figured it would work just as well for my blender.
It actually works pretty well! The suction cups don't stick to it, and I was a little worried that it would shake itself right off of the caddy but it stays put. Plus, it's nice not to have to keep prying suction cups off of the counter!
Rich and I both had birthdays and now I am the proud owner of a Medicare card!
I'm back to my regular work schedule this week. It will be nice to be in my regular routine again. I do really like my job and Kate gave me a small bonus for helping her out these past two weeks. I definitely feel appreciated!
I'm starting to think about my Photo A Day February project that I do every year. Maybe I can come up with some kind of a theme this year.
Thats about it for me for now!
Until the next time stay safe and well my friends!
