ROOMBA! I have named her Ruby. Or, rather, Roobie. Anyone out there have one of these? I already wish I had bought the one with the timer. But if she makes life a bit easier, I think she is worth the expense, even for the close-out model I bought. Hit the button, and she zooms around for almost two hours. Talk about set it and forget it! She docks herself for re-charging. Just for doing the little pick-up bit of vac’ing that needs doing almost daily – pet hair, kitty litter, kitchen crumbs…. she’s pretty good so far! Deep clean will still require the big, lug it around vac, but little Roobie is charming so far!
Next is the Nutribullet! On that health quest, dontchaknow. Succumbed to the QVC/HSN syndrome and bought this one. And it is just what I was after. Mix up a green smoothie every evening for dinner most nights. Here’s my main recipe: About 5 brussel sprouts; big spring of broccoli, stick of celery, chunk of cucumber, handful of frozen strawberries, 1/2 a banana, 1/2 scoop of protein powder mix (*Idealean). Add water to the fill line. Zip/zap for 20 seconds. DELICIOUS! Been doing this for a couple of weeks now, and I am craving these smoothies. This thing couldn’t be easier to use or easier to clean. Rinse under the tap. That’s it. I figure this must surely save me about 200-400 calories or more per day? Hopefully that will show on my body one day! Soon. I hope. One of the best $99 I’ve ever spent.
Kept Baby Caleb for a while today while his daddy recovered from the same strep throat this boy had for a while. Kymmie had it too but was well enough to go back to work. Hopefully, Poppy and Grammy won’t get it. Please note the Firefly book he likes to read at Grammy’s house. Who’s the famous illustrator amongst us?
