One of the things that I love most about Ken is that he just gets me. He usually knows when I want something.
Yesterday I was descaling our Keuring, aka Hazel. I was silently thinking that it might be here time to go.
I know, it is a sad thought.
I cleaned her up wished her another great six months and was done.
This morning I woke up to a husband that was already a cup of coffee ahead of me. Which by the way, is quite odd because he was not a coffee drinker before I got a hold of him.
Anyway, I made my coffee and sat down to watch a little TV with him when he changed the channel to QVC. (I know, why would he do that?)
Guess what they were featuring? The brand new upgraded Keuring Vue Brewing System.
We both sat there in Awe. I was thinking how bad I wanted the damn thing.
I was waiting to see who would say something first.
Ken jokingly told me to order it. I laughed. I told him I thought Hazel had another six months in here.
He laughed. There was a discussion about how long we have had Hazel.
Almost four years. That is approximately 3,000 cups of coffee brewed by Hazel.
I looked at Hazel and realized that she does look tired. I mean, it is almost like she is asking for me to put her down. She is just not brewing as fast as she used to.
In that moment, Ken insisted I pull the trigger.
So I did. You do not have to tell me twice.
This little beauty will be arriving this week.
To celebrate, I had Hazel brew me another cup of coffee. She seems relieved that retirement is upon her.
