I scrambled to clean the mess and clean the coffeemaker too, setting it up again, double and triple checking every aspect of the coffeemaker. All looked good, I pushed start again just as the doorbell rang. I went up the door, came back into the kitchen and yet again, the coffeemaker was leaking. I pulled the plug immediately before another puddle, but that left me having to grab the Chemex, rinse it out, boil water and let it steep.
Too chilly and cloudy to sit outside but otherwise a fun gab fest, talking Florida east versus west coast, taxes, selling houses in an iffy market, kids, grandkids, and just life. Friends are such a joy!
Time to eat the leftovers!
