I have spoons!
This doesn't sound like much, but, as some of you know, I have until now owned a grand total of one spoon. (I have a few cooking spoons, but not eating spoons.) Today, though, Hope and I went scavenging for wedding fabric and a graduation gift for her sister, so while we were at Ikea getting her sister's kitchen set up, I bought a cheap set of silverware. Now I have both teaspoons and tablespoons, each in the plural. (Also more than two forks and one table knife.) I can now serve tea, hot chocolate, soup, beans and rice, etc, and not require that everyone bring his/her own utensil to eat with.
I am excited.
