Favorite things.

 I realized the other day that while I have some adorable heart-shaped measuring spoons (a gift from Lauren's wedding!) my measuring cups were very blah.  They also didn't fit properly in my kitchen drawer, causing me immense frustration whenever I tried to open or close it.

Lucky for me, Newbury Comics had these super adorable measuring cups in the shape of Russian nesting dolls!  (The other smaller measuring cups are inside.)  Love them.
I'm not sure if I fully have "writer's block", as they say, but I've definitely been in work- and bill-paying mode lately.  It's been difficult to concentrate on my creative work--which I really need to do, as I have a deadline looming before me and it's coming up FAST.  I had tried to force 1,000 words a day for a finish date of April--but I must admit, that's not going to happen.  I'll be a little more generous and forgiving of myself.

I had a small victory yesterday by clearing an hour to write and actually doing so.
 Today my beautiful coffee press arrived!  Sadly, it came after I had JUST finished my morning coffee.  Boo, UPS!  Poor timing.  I can't wait to start tomorrow off with some experimenting though.  I've never used a coffee press before, but I hear it's the way coffee is meant to be brewed.
