Buy the Cow

I am in desperate need of a dairy cow! I think we have steamed 4-6 litres (1 to 1.5 gallons) of milk with the new espresso machine already. In two days! On top of my lattes and cappuccinos the kids have been having endless vanilla steamers and hot chocolates. Hubby picked up vanilla syrup as well as the Bailey's and Kahlua, endless hot milk and coffee possibilities. I need to run to the store and get a few more gallons of milk.

We just finished our Advent readings together and the kids are getting ready for bed. I am thinking about that dreaded to do list again and I feel like burying my head in the pillow and ignoring it all. Like the school prep I need to do right now, and the scrapbooking/calendar making that needs to be finished.

Maybe I will just make myself some hot chocolate and pull out my crochet bag. I can work on Zed's stocking while watching some tv with the hubby.Tomorrow will come soon enough.

  2. Ah - Zed's not old enough to realize he doesn't have a stocking. Let that one go, girl.

  3. My sister bought one of those machines, and did the same exact thing. For weeks, it was constantly going. But that's why you got it, right? Enjoy it.

  4. Sometimes I think we need a cow, just because of the amount of milk my kids drink.

  5. Make mine a tall skinny latte please....with maybe some chocolate in there somewhere, to off-set the healthiness of the fat-free milk.

    Lucky you! I'm glad you're enjoying your present.

  6. A tasty dilemma to have! I'm sure a little Bailey's coffee will take the edge off that to do list.
