Welcome to My Obsessions

To say that I have an obsessive personality might put it a little lightly.  When I find an interest in something, it gets my full focus - this of course is something I working on correcting, often I fail - but I am still working on it :-).

So I have been remiss in posting to my blog - because I am no longer interested in it?  Absolutely not!!

See, I recently got a shiny new toy:

refurbished apple green kitchenaid stand mixer

As you look at that picture, imagine if you will:  a chior of angels singing in your head.  Yeah - that is what goes on in my head every time I look at it.  I am so in love ... with the MIXER ... yeah, I said that out loud.  I didn't win it, even though I have been entering every contest as many times as I can over the past several months; however, I did get a GREAT deal on it.  I actually plan on writing a post on it, in case anyone is hesitant about buying KitchenAid refurbished (don't be).

So - I have been in baking, or mixing,  heaven:
stand mixer bread batter  gourmet marshmallows

The first one is of my regular bread recipe - the second is Marshmallows, which is another post I plan on writing (see I have all the plans to write posts, but I haven't been to my blog to DO it!

So I know you are thinking, c'mon Mel!  You are this put together gal, you even posted how you schedule all of your stuff on Sundays.  Yup - I SURE did, didn't I?  Soooo .... what was the plan when Sundays end up jam packed with family time, and I can't pull myself out of my mixing euphoria?  Hell if I know!  I didn't make a plan for that!!  So you know what plan B is?  Throwing everything out the window and living by my obsessions --- err .. passions, yeah that is it .. passions!

Oh - and when I do come out of the clouds, I have actually been enjoying a game that I bought MONTHS ago - Guild Wars 2.  I even have a plan for a few posts on that too:

See - I have even been working on a leader/header for the post!  So you see - I have been thinking of you - just not enough to pull me out of my mixing heaven long enough to type a post. :-)

There is some good news though!
  • I have been on TOP of my dishes!!  Normally dirty dishes are my Arch Nemesis  but since I have been a mixing maven I have been keeping up with my dishes.
  • I am coming out of my euphoria - and having the mixer only adds to the posts I want to post - you should see my idea board now!
  • Sunday - I will be doing my schedule and getting back on track - though I will be setting up a post about my game before the end of the week - but no promises.
  • I do have a plan if I get busy Sunday; to do the scheduling/writing on Monday.
I will be back to haunting your blogs tomorrow as well. :-)  Just know this may happen again - it is just a part of my personality :-)  I get pulled by my passions, and get distracted from my regular stuff.  I will try to not let it take me so long next time hehe.

LAST - but certainly not least ... I was so pleasantly surprise to find this wonderful box of goodies in my mail from Casseruola Dolce Della Vita  the box was simply jam packed with tons of stuff!

  1. That box at the end looks way cool. Gonna have to check into that.
    My girlfriend has one of those KitchenAid mixers and she, too, is obsessed. Unfortunately, I'm baking challenged, so to me it's just a dust collector. ;)

    1. Thanks so much Krista. The green was the one I was going for, and happened to be the only color on a deep discount - I was so stoked!
