Around my birthday day, I start buying  and ordering myself presents.Yesterday, I received one of them . I bought myself an InstaPot, after I read about the inventor in the NYT. Yes, I know , I have , probably , an appliance that does what the Insta Pot does, but I bought it anyway. It came and I made chili in 25 minutes. Knowing how busy I am in retirement, I needed to save all of the minutes that would go into making a pot of chili on an electric stove. Now I have minutes to bank for when I really need them. The chili is quite good, too. That means that I can get rid of one appliance that duplicates the InstaPot, my crock pot. I already have two, I'll keep one. Now I am thinking about passing on my rice cooker to the rummage sale. First, I'll make rice in my new InstaPot. That will eliminate another small appliances. I also gave myself a DNA test. That hasn't come yet. I may find that I am a Romanian gypsy, or a Russian Princess. Wouldn't that be a hoot.My last present to myself is another cookbook. I have to learn how to use my new InstaPot, don't I. I have no intentions of getting rid of my other cook books. So don't look for them at the rummage sale.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
