eBay. Today I finally won TWO of my favorite Tupperware 32-cup "Thatsa Bowl" bowls...in Chili Red--maybe they'll match my new wall??? This is the BEST bowl EVER for bread-making, but some teenager who lives under my roof took my bowl to some teenage thing where teenagers ate chips out of it and I never got it back. Well now I have TWO, and people are going to have to sign them out IN BLOOD.

Tapestry of Grace. Even though as our year winds down we've only utilized about a third of what's there, what a great third! Next year we'll do a little more, I hope, but even what we've used has been fabulous. If you're waist-deep in curriculum decisions for the fall, please take a good look at TOG and talk to some folks who've used it. And any of you in NW San Antonio who are interested in doing a kind of informal co-op for Year One, email me. We might be able to work something out :-)

Knowing that we're getting new air conditioning. I will SO not miss doing without it for a week in the summer when the old system decides to act up. We moved into this brand new house in '01, and we got through only ONE summer with no repairs. It was a cheap, totally inadequate system and now requires replacements that will cost us almost what our first house cost in 1976. But I'm not complaining. Not in this part of the country.

The new pans I bought at Sam's. I love restaurant quality stainless steel bakeware, and I found a twin pack of 19 1/2 x 11 1/2 x 2 1/2 baking/lasagna pans that are going to be perfect for cooking for the crowd at Red River and also for church dinners.
Paypal. It just makes me feel so efficient.
When migraines go away. Any minute now, right?
