My Prized Possession

To most, this is just a piece of junk. Anyone looking through my utensil drawer would think I should have tossed it long ago.  Afterall, it's no longer functional. It just takes up space!  In my eyes it is beautiful. All of its imperfections are part of its story. Part of MY story. In 1984 I was moving into my very first apartment.  I was about to have my own kitchen.  I had nothing to put in it of course except for a set of dishes I purchased at a yard sale and some glasses Id collected from work lol. My mother took me to the store and bought me a set of pots & pans.  She also reached into her own utensil drawer and took out this very spatula.  It was one of her older ones.  Its handle already had several battle wounds from being against the side of a skillet a little too long as she used it to prepare meals for my dad and me. Over the years I have used it to prepare meals for my own family.  My children used it as they learned to cook.   I

The Lovely Amya

Good morning everyone!
Its 6:02am Alaska time and +6 degrees.
I'm one latte down and ready for number 2.


Yesterday, my husband too the boys to see TheBlack Panther.
Have you seen it yet? I didn't go.I assumed it would be crowded and I just couldn't "people" yesterday lol. He gave it rave reviews, so if they put it on the matinee at some point, I will definitely go lol.

Synopsis:
After the death of his father, T'Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king -- and as Black Panther -- gets tested when he's drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.

Good morning everyone! Its 5:17am Alaska time and the holding at+23 degrees. The wind was howling all day yesterday. It finally seems to have calmed. I was waiting with baited breath for the power to die lol. Hence the reason for not being here yesterday. I eeked out one promo and shut it down for the day. I found a show on YouTube Red called Escape The Night yesterday . Have you seen it? It's like one of those murder mystery getaway thingies. They have to solve various types of puzzles to find the next clue. Synopsys: In this surreality competition series, 10 guests are invited from the modern world to attend a dinner at the host's newly acquired mansion estate, which has been locked in the 1920's. This is a dinner party to die for. No one is safe. Ok, I'm ready for Latte #2. Before I go, I want to share an artistic promo I did via Sympatico Studio featuring  The lovely Take Ten Jumper by Nirvy. It's a Dforce garment and is perfect for a relaxing nigh
