Today's big news was that my order of six salsa bowls arrived. They're not elegant but they don't need to be. I bought them with a very specific purpose in mind: to keep small, stray objects (and even more specifically, my glasses) in one place where I can find them easily. The bowls are red, yellow, and green - not my favorite colors, aesthetically, but that's actually good because they contrast with almost everything I own.
I even used one to put salsa in!
In other news - almost as exciting as the six salsa bowls - I learned that my contract at work has been extended a couple of months beyond the original six. I like where I'm working, and apparently the feeling is mutual.
