Friday night Susan began getting ready for the hurricane by purchasing a 504 piece puzzle for the daughter. They wanted to get in a little puzzle practice so they spread it all over the table and set to work. At the end of two hours, with only four pieces connected, they dumped it back into the box.

Saturday Susan continued her preparation by taking down her wind chimes. She also clipped all the sunflowers from her front yard and put them in her dining room. A quick check of supplies determined there was more than enough liquor and ice cubes to make it through to Monday. There was also enough coffee and reading material.

And speaking of coffee, Susan's new countertop necessitated that she trade up to a French press and now she and the husband are hooked. Hooked!
They can't go back.

Oooh, a puzzle! I haven't done a puzzle in a while. I'm thinking I'll wait till winter, because I'm told there will be snow. Ugh.

Anyway, I have a french press, too, and love it!

Puzzles are like magic, better left to the experts whomever they may be.

We refer to our French Press as Mister Master Magical Man.

NPR this morning was giving away French Press Coffee Mugs to any lucky caller interested in giving NPR $12.50 a month, for a year. As soon as they said it can be used for tea leaves I scrambled for my bank card. But then I realized Target probably has them for $10.
