Simple Pleasures

So my last post was a little grumpy, and by nature I am not grumpy. In fact today I am quite happy. Papa bear bought me the cast iron enamel pot I have been wanting for so long now. I had one once upon a time, but it was ruined soon after I got it. I have used my new one twice in the last 3 days.

It is amazing how acquiring something new can renew your passion for a craft. The simple tasks of chopping vegetables and stirring a pot make me smile. I don't need a fancy food processor, or other gadgets. Just give me a good pot, and a good knife, and a nice wooden spoon and I am a happy camper.

The dumplings broke up a bit, but the pretty pot makes up for it!
