Coffee and Electricity 12/07/2009

So I’ve noticed that making a cup of coffee seems to take longer and longer…..or am I just homogenizing?
This is my coffee maker.

It takes exactly 11 minutes to make one cup.   Yes, I know I’m anal and I timed it.  I make one cup at a time and unplug the coffee maker after I finish to keep those vampires at bay.  That’s why the time is never right.
This is my water kettle.

It takes exactly 2 minutes to heat one cup of water to boiling.
So, since Google is my friend, I started searching on line for another option and found one of these.

Not a bad price at $9.99 with free shipping.  I remember my Mom had something similar back in the Germany and I’ll never forget the smell of her coffee.  Coffee should taste even better since every week I have to cycle vinegar and water through MR Coffee because of all the crud that’s built up on the inside.  It’s pretty gross!
I just finished putting bubble wrap on half of my kitchen window.  I want to leave the other half open so that my pussy and I can have one clear view window in our home.

I also covered the vent in the kitchen to keep any heat from leaking out.

I have three vents like this and the only one that’s not covered is the one in the bathroom to take care of the condensation from taking a shower.  I’ll probably start covering that one too as winter gets colder.
One of the most worried about things when living in a travel trailer full time is the condensation.  The bubble wrap has stopped most of it.  The only place that I have to wipe off daily is the metal frame that surrounds each window.  Last year I was using 3 or 4 towels a day to get rid of the puddle in the frames.  No condensation on the walls or anywhere else.  That’s good news….no mold growing here. 🙂
Well…time for breakfast.  Yes I know it’s 12:55 PM 🙂
