I think these are staples for many people in this world, but had not before been in demand in this household. I think I might have used sesame oil before in something. Now I probably have a lifetime supply of 5 spice powder on hand, so I should be looking for more ways to use it.
It's a lovely morning here, no alarms to wake us, sun shining. Bob is on his way to the grocery store to replenish our larder, I am cleaning a bit (a very little bit) and then planning to finish a quilt on the frame for Leisl. She has made 2 matching quilts that will be going to her sister's new condo on the east coast, so I am happy to have a little piece of me going to the beach!
My feet are 10 times better today, even after spending all day Friday walking while working at the store, and this morning I used a new arch support in my tennis shoes and was able to walk on the treadmill with very little discomfort. It's a miracle!
