Kitchen gadgets and more

Monday, December 03, 2012

I haven't written any blogs in several days, maybe a week.
I enjoy reading all your blogs so much. Makes me feel connected to all of you!

So this past week I received my fitbit zip in the mail and it turned on just fine and was keeping track of steps etc. on the device it's self but I had trouble getting it synced to the computer. It is because I am technically challenged, not the fitbit, just me. I really love it. It isn't the fancier one that keeps track of sleep, but I wear it to bed on my waist band of PJ's and that way I don't forget to put it on in the morning. I still need to educate my self on all the finer points of using it on line, like how to add my exercise to my tracker with out upsetting my minutes exercised, and if min are cardio or strength. Oh well, like I said I am challenged and don't have enough time to look all this up.

My husband has been sick the last week and even though he hasn't needed a "nurse" I have lost sleep from his coughing, but that's getting better. This past weekend my daughter got sick and she has needed my nursing expertise. Doctor too busy to see her today so I'll take her tomorrow to see Dr.

I ordered a rice cooker/steamer/sauté-er and it came in the mail today, so I've been reading up on that and hopefully will "play" with it tomorrow. I love getting new gadgets and it should be a great addition to our kitchen as I plan to use it often. Only thing is it doesn't have a porridge setting on it and now I see all these marvelous sounding recipes for that kind of food and I wish....

    I was thinking about getting a fitbit but I sit at my computer all day....which is why I have to do so much cardio to make up for normal activities.

Let us know how the rice cooker works. I have wanted one of those for forever!

Hope you have a great week!

    There is nothing like a new kitchen gadget - or any new gadget for that matter - to brighten one's day. Have fun!
