It seems as though it has been a million years since we here at the Lilac Thicket have been able to communicate with our dear readers. I can scarcely remember so long ago when the Internet was NOT part of our daily lives. As wonderful as it is it is definitely a time stealer.
Pulling out my utensils and ingredients to make my cookies, I found to my dismay that the Professor had been using my rubber spatula to cook his fried rice ! It was ruined. How fortunate I had bought a rubber spatula with little tiger faces all over it (we are a Mizzou family) for my sister in her Christmas stocking.
I wrote on the wooden handle of the new spatula…well you see ! And it it very peculiar that every time I am in the kitchen cooking or baking the Professor wants to sweep. I can’t tell you how many times I have asked him to refrain from stirring up stuff with the broom while I’m in the kitchen. So THEN he wants to fix him some breakfast and I absolutely shudder when he is in the kitchen…EW…would be a good word to use. So I cover up everything I am doing and come and type some more into my blog until he is finis !
