I wasn't going to tell you all this. I thought perhaps it would be best to spare you the grief, but I couldn't keep the truth hidden any longer.
No, my blog is not going away. But my big green bowl did. Yes friends, this morning I had a little accident and my green bowl is no more. I knocked it off its shelf and it broke into little pieces all over my kitchen floor.
No, I did not cry, but I felt like it.
It's all my fault. You see, I had just been telling a friend the other day, "I don't know what I'd do if I broke my big green bowl." I knew as soon as I spoke those words, it would happen. See? This is a lesson to all of us. Do NOT put those kinds of thoughts out into the universe. Those messages take hold and boom, the reality of it will happen. I'm telling you, I believe that with my whole heart. You don't fool with stuff like that.
And now....well, I am living with the consequences. I have been in a funk all morning over this. Yes, I have another bowl I can bake with but it's not the same.
I bought my big green bowl at a drugstore, of all places. I got a set of three nesting bowls all for $10!! I know! My favorite color of green, my favorite style of Bauer look-alike bowls. I have not seen any like them since. It's been a long time so I don't think I'll see them for sale anywhere else. They were not marked on the bottom so I don't even know who manufactured them. The middle sized bowl survived but that is small comfort.
Dear friends, if you happen to see any bowls like this one in a store near you, will you please let me know? I would love to replace this one with exactly the same kind. I know it's a long shot but I can hope. Now THAT is an intention I will put out into the universe!
Goodbye my big green bowl. I shall miss you. Baking won't be the same without you, but your memory will live on here in this blog.
