There was a box waiting for me when I got home from work. I large box. I was a bit confused, as I hadn't ordered anything -- especially not something that big. Curiously, I looked at the label, trying to figure out from where this large box had come. Then I saw it: Lennox, Intl.
It was my coffee maker!
This was a nice surprise, because the confirmation e-mail I had gotten said it wouldn't even be shipped until Feb 20. Wrestling the large box inside my house, I eagerly cut open the tape, and yes, there it was! My coffeemaker!!
I set the mill aside for now, because I've still got plenty of already ground coffee to use up first. I'll get back to it later.
I got a bit of a chuckle at these:
Nevertheless, I wanted to savor the experience, so I followed them exactly. After getting the coffeemaker out of the box and all unpacked, I followed the manufacturer's recommendation and ran a carafe of plain water through it to clean out any dust that may have settled during shipping and such.
Even though I know I'm going to regret it later, as I'll be up half the night from the caffeine, I couldn't wait until morning to enjoy my first cup of coffee.
On the bright side, I'll get plenty of knitting done!!
