Busy Here Doing This & That

I've had my single beverage server since Christmas and found a neat tutorial on how to clean it on Pinterest and YouTube.

So I took mine apart and put the K-Cup holder plus drip tray and drip tray plate in the dishwasher.
I didn't put the water reservoir tank in the dishwasher because my Keurig instructions states NOT to put the water reservoir lid or water reservoir tank in the dishwasher.

I used a toothbrush and microfiber cloth to clean the coffee grinds out of the K-Cup portion pack housing.

My Hubby was the smart one who thought to always fill my Keurig with the distilled water from our refrigerator. I will still de-scale it but there aren't any tell tale calcium deposits under the water tank so using distilled water really helps. Also whenever we make hot chocolate we run a cup of clear water through the cycle afterwards. 

I love this beverage maker so I want it to last.

One side of green flower border is done on my Rose Garden Granny Rose throw. 

 I may go back when finished with the green flower border and tack down the flowers so they don't curl up.

A lot of work goes into making a throw and not everyone will appreciate the time and effort a crocheter puts into their piece...I've seen many beautiful vintage works that go for a few dollars. I guess that's life - art forms come and go in popularity. 

I'm glad that crocheting seems to be "in" again!

  1. Sandy, I ordered a Keurig Personal Brewer from QVC when it was a Today's Special a few weeks ago and I am instantly hooked. I need to use the filtered water. Oops, my bad. I also want to try more flavors of coffee and teas. xo

  2. I don't have this type of coffee maker yet...are you listening Santa? I love the colors of your afghan. Crocheting has always been "in" for me!

  3. I don't have a coffee machine but I'm a fan of using filtered water in electrical appliances (kettle, iron etc).
    It is sad that beautiful work just doesn't attract the price something "with soul" should do.
