I never tire of the changing views in Cuenca
In response to some of the great comments I've received, thank you for reading my blog and your kind thoughts. Carol noted that a comment I made about "why wait to retire when you could live on less now and be in a healthier environment?"
and the ideas were great for la gata. It was encouraging to me that you had a cat who did fine over 6 wks alone (with daily care). Gracias.
A reader asked what grain mill I got. I bought the Wondermill Whispermill on Amazon. It is sort of mid priced at $260 - I could not justify spending over $500 on this item. I hope it works out and grinds brown rice finely enough for my baking needs.
A friend let me use her powerful blender Vitamix that grinds grains also. However, it was not fine enough when grinding brown rice. Very crunchy cookies are ok but in cakes or pies etc, not so good. I'll report later on how successful the Wondermill is. The frustrating thing is that there are Vitamix devotees who are almost religiously passionate about it. And there are plenty of people who have one sitting in the back of the cupboard or closet and never will use it. But don't want to sell it for a reasonable used price. I talked with 3 people who sorta wanted theirs sell theirs for absolute full price, no discount for it being out of box, looking like it had been used. Arrrrgggghhhhhhh!
Readers please know that I read any comments and love to know that you are reading my blog. This started out to be something for my family members and friends to read to relate to my new adventure.
However, I have had 10,000 viewers from all over the world. What a grand compliment that is. Thank you, readers. It inspires me to think and write!
PS: the funny thing is that very few of my family and friends read the blog. So ironic!
