Liquid Goodness

There has been an awesome new addition to our household. A lot of our stuff is still in storage in California which makes buying things a little difficult. I don’t want to buy a bunch of stuff for the place and then have all of old belongings come back and have no room for them. This makes trips to Target a little hard on me. Target is my place of sanctuary. I can spend hours there. Anyway, back to the new addition.

As I was walking down the grocery aisles I came to the coffee section. The fragrance of coffee stirred a longing for caffeinated delight in me. I decided then and there that if I could find a coffeemaker for around ten bucks I would purchase one. I walked hurriedly to the kitchen appliances aisle and was thrilled to have found a $9.99 ChefMate coffeemaker. I quickly procured the coffeemaker and some filters and tossed it into the cart.

I promenaded proudly back to the coffee aisle and picked out a container of Folgers of the French Vanilla variety and some decaf for Bobaloo. As I checked out I could hardly contain my anticipation as the cashier scanned my items.

Once at home, I placed the coffeemaker in a hallowed corner of the counter where it could be admired from all corners of the kitchen. It was brilliant and shiny and new. I immediately half-read the instructions and started to brew my first pot of liquid goodness. I poured the russet liquid into a travel mug along with some French Vanilla creamer. I went out to the patio, lit a cigarette, and enjoyed the coffee. It was bliss.


  1. 1. Target is heaven.
    2. You experienced shopping destiny. I also set these limits for myself :)

  2. Jillie,

    My espresso maker is on the fritz, so what did I do? Called the manufacturer. He said I need to send it in for repair. So what did I do next? Ordered me a new coffee maker to have during the 3-4 days my other one is being fixed. Girl, how could you LIVE without coffee all this time? I told hubs that if someone said, "Coffee or your husband?" I'd help him pack his bag. Glad to hear you're caffeinated once again with the rest of us on the dark side. ;-)

  3. Target IS heaven. Reading your post almost has me wanting to drink coffee. It smells so delicious...

  4. Thanks for your lovely comment! And thanks for stopping by my blog!

    And I LOVE Target! It's sad because there isn't one in Boston and when I read posts about people spending time in Target, I get insanely jealous!


Hey you! Got somethin' to say?
