says my speculative son in response to the question posed by the head of the school on his first day of a new school. His formative response to the question, “Do you like your new teacher?” intrigued me to investigate what other little minds in his classroom were thinking. At his age, I would have bashfully responded in a barely audible tone a simple, yes, and hoped it would be the end of the interrogation, however, other little girls in his classroom boasted in detail about their teacher’s loving smile or pretty dress and how she gives great hugs. I adore my son’s candor and hope he continues to say what he thinks as he grows into a man, however, I also trust that he may edit a few of his thoughts so he doesn’t sound like an inconsiderate rube. Cheers to honesty in and outside of your nest! Also, cheers, literally to the most amazing recent discovery. I fortuitously read about making shakes with a mason jar instead of your blender’s pitcher. Yes, this does work, however, you have to have the correct blender. Most bases to blenders fit a standard mason jar, if you are the lucky owner of one…presto you can transform an ordinary jam container into a mini blender beaker. Unfortunately, the pitcher of my blender is one piece and does not disassemble for me to enjoy a few extra minutes in the morning and one less item to clean. I will patiently wait until my blender has its last run before I buy another one, but when that time comes, I will jet out of my nest with my mason jar to find the perfect match. Cheers and happy start of a new school year!
