    Thanks, MM. That is the mini-fridge that I posted about in another thread, that reeks of essential oils. It smells great, but I can't put anything edible in there until I get the aroma out. I'd like to keep Half and Half and water in there.

    Essential oils - interesting!! Where did you get it from? And speaking of essentail oils - I need to get some peppermint extract for some play dough that I'm making - any idea where I could get some? Mahalo.

    I usually just get peppermint extract at the grocery store. I've had the fridge for some time, but when I was making stuff for the craft store, I used it to store soap-making supplies and EO's/FO's. Now I'd like to re-purpose it, but it is saturated with the smell of all the oils. I can leave the door open and have a great air-freshener for the bedroom, but I'd rather use it as a fridge!

    That Mark Twain is definitely my kind of guy!

    MH - Once when I was in a two-story apartment with the bedroom upstairs, I set up a tea station, so I could make tea upstairs and have a leisurely cup of tea and read to start the day. It was wonderful. So enjoy your coffee bar - it's a great luxury. Life can't be all work and diligence!

    I really didn't accomplish anything yesterday - I kept falling asleep whenever I sat still for very long, so I guess I wasn't as recovered as I thought. But it's a whole new day, and last night's tomorrow came after all, so I've got to do better. I have a really short work shift, 3 hours, mid day, so I'll try to gear up and get with it when I get home. The morning is mine.

    dcompton, maybe one of your "to do" chores should be "make sure I am rested and get enough sleep today." Sometimes, it is just as tedious to do what we need to do to keep OURSELVES in order as it is to do what we need to do to keep our homes in order.
