Re: What Made You Smile Today?

Even though the standard that once was Pyrex has been sold out and prostituted for filthy lucre, you can still get the real deal—borosilicate glass—on the ’zon from...you guessed it...France.

For the love of all things culinary, thank bon cuisine that someone still cares about the actual task at hand...preparation of food to nourish and express lovingness to another.

Re: What Made You Smile Today?

Watching the robins tilting their heads to listen intently for the worms, having the cheeseburger birds hanging and singing with me in the sun, two vibrant male cardinals chillin' in the dogwood as I hooped next to the lilac and hibiscus bushes, and hearing the buzzin' of the bumble bee as it approached me alongside the beautiful breeze. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh................what a beautiful f'n morning.

Maybe I could just mosey around invisibly and snick-snack my way around.

You could always bring grapefruits.

Use one of those fancy knives that cuts a zig-zag shape and call it an artsy fartsy, tasty and healthy offering. Maybe even get fancy and garnish it with a few bunches of red grapes.

Then wipe the sweat from your brow from the effort.

Work smart, not hard.

Re: What Made You Smile Today?

My 39 x 24 cm, 3.5 L, borosilicate glass roasting pan by arcuisine® France came today.

And I love Amazon Prime free Two-Day shipping when it comes in one day.

I get stuff delivered at work because 1) I am in charge of the shipping dept., and 2) I wouldn’t be home to receive it.

So I’m all excited and showing off my borosilicate glass roasting pan, looking like the nerd/geek that I am, and I get
teased a little. But I tell them that this is the real deal—the same kind of glass that Pyrex was in the 1960s and 1970s—
the same kind your mom probably used when you were small.

And that elicited soft oohs and aahs...and then came little vignettes from people about this and that...emotional gold nuggets...
that involved Pyrex...but Pyrex wasn’t important.

Before anyone realized, three people were in tears, including me, because the emotion in the air was so thick you could cut it
with a chef’s knife.

Then someone wanted to touch it. I handed it to them. They said “wow, it is so light. The glass is...thin!” And I replied “It is
as thick as it needs to be, and quality glass of this kind can be thin.”

Then someone pointed out that the information blurb on the back of the insert was printed in 18 languages. I said “When you
build something of quality, the whole world will beat a path to your door.”

My boss teased us all a little with “Geez people, it’s a pan, a nice pan, but a pan. Let’s not get too worked up here.”

And I said “Exactly, save that for tomorrow at lunch when you see what I bring in.”

---

OK, I am a kitchen nerd. Love me about that, or not.

But my borosilicate glass roasting pan is here today and I. AM. EXCITED.

Like a kid on Christmas.

And it did make me smile when it arrived, and I am smiling now.

Bon appétit!


J'adore les Français,
Ian

Re: What Made You Smile Today?

Getting a call from an old friend I recently crossed paths with requesting a mindful eating and purposeful movement consultation to help her find her way to nutritional wellville, and to have some hang time to play catch up.

Note to self, the harder you try to purposely draw folks in with the intent of making it a business to make money, the less it will happen, as I've experienced thus far.

The more you simply live your healthiest example and freely share the information that has most helped you, the more folks will purposely find you wanting to exchange time, goods, money, or services.

If I could just get that organizational fairy to want to hang more often, I'd feel a bit more secure in offering help.

The fact Ebony just let me pick her up and didn't freak out about being held for about 2 seconds before she decided enough was enough and she wanted down again now <3

My co-worker friend brought me in a little breakfast box of veggies and cheese. I'm feeling the love this Monday.
