miscellaneous ramblings
  • Replaced my glasses. New frames are similar, but different. Seth doesn't like them as much. I like them better. *shrug*
  • Went to The Wentworth Gallery across from Lens Crafters while I was waiting. I resisted the urge to purchase a gorgeous work by one of my favorite artists called Holy City:

    Schluss- Holy City

  • Le Sigh. I would have liked to get the piece, but Seth pointed out that we've got expenses coming up with the monster that sort of get in the way of purchasing art. So as a consolation prize....
  • I went to Williams Sonoma and bought a pineapple corer, a cherry pitter, a beautiful wooden spoon for which I have no purpose, but which I wanted a lot, an avocado slicer, a beautiful wooden salad bowl and salad hands, and a lemon juicer thingy. Life is good.
  • Julian's forms and such for the Hebrew Academy arrived yesterday, confirming that he will be enrolled there next year. This, of course, threw me into second thoughts. I hope this is the right decision. Le Sigh.
  • I have no migraine today. That's two days in a row. I hate depakote, but I'm beginning to think I can't live without it.

I really like that piece, Karen! Is it charcoal? Pen & ink? Something else? It's hard to tell from the picture.

You know, I actually think the original is oil on canvas (though I was looking at getting a limited edition serigraph, NOT the original which I couldn't afford in a zillion years), though when it's that small it looks like a charcoal piece, doesn't it? I could be wrong. We saw four city scapes and they were all different, so I may have mixed them up. That one was my favorite. I love art.

Schluss, incidentally, is the artist that did the piece that's in our living room over the fireplace, if you can remember it.

HEY! What's this?!!? You're supposed to be frivolously spending your hard-earned money on Pampered Chef kitchen stuff! ;-)

Williams Sonoma is like gan eden for kitchen gear. Pampered Chef is a close second! My favorite kitchen items are Pampered Chef!

Oh I know Williams Sonoma is *quite* the kitchen haven.

I'm just giving Karen a good-natured hard time because she told me there was Pampered Chef stuff she wanted to get from me, and a couple things she got today have a PC equivalent (though not owning the cherry-pitter or lemon juicer thingy myself, it could be that the WS versions are superior). :-)

worry not. I have a list for PC.

Actually, does PC have a pineapple corer? I have to take this one back to WS because there's something wrong with it. I can exchange or return it, depending on if PC has one.

hehe. I was just teasin' you anyway.

I don't think Pampered Chef has a pineapple corer. Cherry Pitter, yes. Lemon Juicer, yes. Avocado slicer/pitter, yes. But not a pineapple corer, and I don't think the PC apple corer would be a suitable substitute...
