Saturday super shopping

So this morning, MM went over to the rec hall for the weekly donuts and coffee gathering, and brought home this not so small surprise for me from the Trash and Treasure sale:

cook top

Just what is this, you ask?  Well, it is an induction cooker, introduced to us by some of our Canadian friends last year.  They are a super, duper quick hot plate type of cooker that can be used by temperature and/or time combination.  It will boil water much faster than my gas burner cook top.  Srsly faster.

I don’t think this one has ever been used.  And MM only paid $10 for it!  This price even beats the bargain one he bought me last summer (love it!) on that famous auction site for $60.  They sell for MUCH higher than that.  Now one can stay home, and one can live in the moho.

Smart shopper, that MM guy.  Notice how he looks after his tummy!

We are certainly hoping everyone is coping well with the blizzard up north…as we are basking in the beautiful, warm Florida sunshine.  Well, I am the basker…MM has gone to tinker on his trailer again.  And he needs to work on the chain binders he bought online, anther bargain, and something he seriously needed.

Laundry is going, trash is out, 2 kitties are sleeping…it’s just another day in paradise.

Thought for the dayA  penny saved is a
Government  oversight.

Have yourself a ginger peachy Saturday.  Life is good, y’all!  Stay safe and warm.

Such a sweet guy to look out for his tummy. I mean sweet wife. I have no earthly idea what chain binders are but I'm sure MM thinks they are the coolest.

Say, when the time is right, perhaps I should have him shop TA cruises for me. :)

Have a funtabulous day in Paradise. WIWT. srsly. big hugs xoxo
