This is Ethel.
Friends of ours dropped her off today, because they were feeling guilty about neglecting Ethel and thought she’d be happier here with me.
I don’t know if Ethel will be happier, but I sure will.
I’m so delighted that they thought of me! What a lucky woman I am!
I had an old Sunbeam stand mixer, also given to me, but it eventually died during the holidays of 2007. While I always said I would buy a new one, and The Mister even offered to buy me one at some point, I never did get around to it. (I do that. It took me over a year to finally commit to buying a new set of knives.)
Right about now, I feel like I’m being rewarded for my purchase procrastination!
Isn’t she just magnificent?!?
Welcome, Ethel, welcome. I promise you will never want for attention in my kitchen.
