During January I was kind of into the new year and didn't really post anything about our Christmas. I thought I would tell you about two of my favorite gifts I received.
First I got these little things. They were in my stocking and I was so excited to find them. I have wanted a pair of earplugs for months now. My sisters clued me in about them and said they sleep with them in. For a while now I have had a hard time getting used to my husbands "deep" breathing, as he calls it. Now, after having one of these nice orange things in my ear (I only sleep with one in because one ear is always against my pillow) I have been sleeping much better.
For Christmas I also got a wheat grinder. It's a kitchen Mill by blendtec. I have had it on my "to buy" list for a while, but it has always gotten pushed to the bottom when other things have become a priority.
I cook a lot with whole wheat flour and this makes it nice and convenient to always have it when I need it.
The earplugs also come in handy with the wheat grinding, because it is a loud process. It just takes a few minutes to get this much flour but it is a few minutes that is bearable with earplugs.
