Thursday Thoughts v.2

Linking up with Sarah for another edition of Thursday Thoughts. Here's what on my mind this week.

[1] My week started with a broken coffee pot. Who knew it would be so hard to find a replacement? No, I don't want a coffee maker that makes one expensive cup at a time. No, I don't want a coffee maker that grinds the beans first. And no, I don't want want a coffee maker that hooks right up to my water line for an automatic fill (or automatic spill). Our needs are simple: 12 cup capacity with a thermal carafe in a reputable brand. We shopped everywhere, and finally found one at an electronics store, of all places! So here's our brand new Cuisinart coffee maker courtesy of Fry's Electronics. Love it!

[2] I discovered The Container Store! Holy cow, I think my husband thought I got lost in there. How did I not know this store existed? I definitely need to go back sans hubby for more serious shopping. Must remember to do a little window shopping on-line and make a shopping list before I go back. 

[3] Still counting down the days to my new and improved hip...20 days until the big day! Just heard Obama is planning a visit in Seattle two days later. Wonder how he heard about my surgery?

 [4] When the weather turns dreary, there is nothing better than cuddling up with a little furry friend. We have two cats, but I really think Trooper was a dog in a previous life. He follows me everywhere I go, loves to chase after treats, and wants to lay next to or on top of me whenever I sit down. He is definitely our Alpha cat, and has a tendencity to be mean to his sister Dash if I pay too much attention to her. Regardless, he loves to be with his Mom, and it warms my heart.

 So much for my deep thoughts...what's on your mind this week?


  1. I love the Container Store!! I wish they had one close to me, but I'd end up spending a lot more money :)

    Trooper is so adorable. I really wish I wasn't so super allergic to cats, I would love to have one.

  2. Trooper is a happy camper! Love it.

    And YAY for a new hip! The day you get a new hip = the day Nick has a Stanford interview!
