Measuring Spoons

Today I discovered some whimsical, fun measuring spoons made by Ganz. I would love to have a set of these, but they are expensive and it's just not in my budget right now. I can look, though. Nothing wrong with "window shopping."

If you go to Google and do an image search for "Ganz measuring spoons" you will get lots of pictures. Here are a few.

Adriana Trigiani

I am so excited! Adriana Trigiani is one of my favorite authors. Yesterday I got a wonderful surprise in the mail. Her assistant sent me 2 of Adriani's books. One is her current one called Very Valentine and the other one is the cookbook that Adriana wrote about her family and has all kinds of recipes in it. Apparently, her assistant made a mistake and instead of sending me a DVD where Adriana talks about all of her books, she inadvertently sent me the two books instead. I emailed her and made sure she knew about the error. She said it was my lucky day and to keep the books or give them away or whatever I wanted to do with them. I've decided I'm going to donate them to the library where I work.

So, as a small token of my appreciation, I have decided that I'm going to send both Adriani and her assistant one each of my handmade knit scarves. I'll post pictures of the scarves in a later post.

All Cat Owners Should Watch This

A friend sent this link to me for a video that all cat owners should watch. This is exactly the way my cat, Heckle, would love to wake me up every morning if I would let him. This just cracks me up.
