Belated Christmas Cheer!
I know it’s like…almost Valentines Day, but I finally figured out what I wanted from Amazon.com (where part of my Mother’s wonderful Christmas gifts came from) and it arrived a few days ago. I got two awesome saute pans by Rachel Ray and a set of knives in a block – they’re sooo cool! I’ve never had a block of nice knives before.
Previously I was doing all my cutting with either a $3 serrated steak knife from Target (part of a set that I seem to have lost all but one) or a 12″ $100 Wusthof Trident chef’s knife. I really needed a set of knives. The saute pans are great too. I’ve only used them once so far, but I was impressed with the searing of my meat and they cleaned up like a dream. Thanks, Mom!
Also, Terry got me a camera case off Etsy. I carry around my lovely Sony CyberShot digital camera with me everywhere, at all times, just in case something photographic happens (i.e. life happens!) And it is usually just tossing around in one of the pockets or compartments in my purse. I had been eying Liz’s gorgeous handmade sleeves for digital cameras and she made one right to size for my blue camera. Isn’t it gorgeous? Thanks for making it, Liz, and thanks to Terry for buying it!
And lastly, here’s a few photos…….Here I am…Terry took this of me while I was watching Barefoot Contessa and drinking my coffee on Saturday morning. Please, ignore the bed-head; I was barely awake.
And this photo was actually not posed. We were watching TV and Terry was holding Poley…they were both super sleepy and this photo ensued. I’ve come to realize the best time to photograph dogs and people is when they’re half asleep.
And lastly, this photo was completely posed. It’s a rare two-headed pug. Twice the food, half the farts!
