...a Vitamix blender...WOW!...

...WOW!...I now have a Vitamix blender...

...we needed a new blender...our workhorse of a blender was about 21 years old...purchased the same year we built our house in Balsam Grove...

...I loved that blender...it had taken to making an ear-bursting screeching noise intermittently during blending sessions...but then would straighten itself up and blend normally for several sessions...and then it would screech again...and emit a yucky smelling sort of electrical burning smell...

...so we were thinking about getting a new blender...but you know how attached I get to things...I kept putting it off...

...I guess it's a good thing that the Man and I are quite different in this respect...as left up to me...we'd still be using the screecher...
...and he knows me well enough to know that I'd be thrilled to receive a Vitamix blender for a birthday present...and I know that's not the case for everyone...

...but THRILLED I was...
...I pulled it out of the box and immediately set about giving it a first bath...that is, by the way, the way you normally clean it...just a few drops of soap and a spin...easie peasie...
...and then immediately set about making a first smoothie...
...the smoothest homemade smoothie I've ever had...not a single speck of spinach was visible...

...so Happy Birthday to me!...I have a Vitamix Blender...

~Have a lovely day!

It's that burning smell that is the most scary thing!
