Breville Smart Grinder is the best $200 I've spent lately. You set it to grind as many cups as you are going to make, and then dump the grounds into the coffeemaker basket. No measuring. It takes a while to get the amounts right when you first start using it, but once that is done, you have the best coffee ever. I had a very cheap burr coffee grinder, but it made a mess every time I used it. I'm not even kidding when I tell you that Cliff and I can be heard talking about how good our coffee is, every time we have a cup. I don't grind the beans until I'm ready to make coffee, so it's as fresh as possible.
And my latest purchase, the Fitbit zip.
You clip that tiny little thing to your waistband or bra and forget all about it. Any time you're near a computer or tablet, you can see how many miles you've walked in a given day. Below you can see my stats from a few minutes ago. That 4.79 miles, of course, includes a couple miles in the pasture this morning.
Cliff said if I don't shut up telling him how far I've walked every hour or so, he's going to throw it away.
A local Facebook friend was talking about hers, which was the first I ever heard of it. She has the Ultra model, which lets you know how often you are awake at night. It would have been neat to have, but it cost twice as much, and I really just wanted to see how much I was walking. You know, so I could tell Cliff.
