The last time I went to IKEA, it was a Saturday, and crowded, but no one seemed cranky about it, so I was having a good time.

Then the group with Nordic Walking Poles came through. It was pretty funny until one of them accidentally smacked me in the back of the ankle with one.

I think everyone in my building is a musician, but down the hall there's a cellist who gives lessons and somewhere there's a saxophone player that I hear occasionally. It's lovely to be reminded that I'm surrounded by people creating something.

Solid, dark chocolate rabbit are my favorite. And I love chopped chocolate bars in brownies-- what about a bunny brownie?

I can't show up at work looking like a crazy cat lady covered with fur anymore! I need this vacuum.

"This Sewing Table is so smart. It accommodates all the storage you need for fabric, spools of thread, and sewing tools."

I'd say that it probably wouldn't fit any of the fabric I need for a project bigger than an apron. Also, some of my tools (like for using a rotary cutter) wouldn't fit in there. But yes, it's nice, and would be great for keeping some of the stuff you need while you're working on a project handy.

Steel cut oats-- I make a couple days worth of a mix of oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts, and golden raisins, and put them in a ziplock bag. Then, at work, I put maybe 3/4 cup into my mug, add enough water to cover plus about an inch, and put in the microwave for two minutes. It's still soupy at this point, but I leave it on my desk for a little while, and by the time it's cool enough to eat, the oats have absorbed the rest of the water and it's perfect.

I'd put my kitten in there, and post pictures of it, to continue my streak of Crazy Cat Lady Who Posts Pictures of Her Kitten.

The Persian tea they used to sell at Sahar in Milwaukee. Man, that was like liquid Xanax.
