I love this pot! And when my friend gave me the little ceramic one for Christmas, I just thought it was the coolest coincidence.

The burst of red is so lovely, it makes me happy to serve meals out of it. Tonight we are having Dirty Rice- my husband hates tomatoes, but ah well...

I guess I don't have much to say. I was thinking about the impermanence of life today. Here I am, driving my daughter to preschool and I'm looking at all the people in their cars or walking up to the Post Office and I'm like "Man, everybody dies in the end!". I guess it's because it's been a long winter, plus my Uncle Wally died and so that's getting me thinking.

He was a simple man. Like, literally, simple. In the old sense of the word. But I think it's cool that he lived and was married and had his moments, I'm sure. Just that he existed. But it's got me thinking about what my contribution will be. It's nice to think about leaving something behind. But I've also been thinking about how MANY people there are. Ravelry has brought this home to me, oddly enough. I mean, not even all the small population of what knitters there are are on there, and then you see how many many people are knitting the same things, it just boggles the mind. I guess I'm having a craving for offering something unique.

Okay, here are a few links for you;
- Trent Reznor has offered one of his four disc release "Ghosts" for FREE.
- a You Tube video of Five Minute Artisan Bread. I think I'll try this out, but the keeping it in the fridge part will squigg out my husband...

p.s. did I ever tell you about the time I said I was going to Homecoming but then we went to see NIN? ooooh, I was a sneaky one...
