My Sugar Bowl

I don't eat sugar. I don't put sugar in my hot tea, in my iced tea, in coffee, in most anything. I eat sweet things, but just not granulated sugar for the most part.

So I never had a sugar bowl on my table for a long, long, time.

And then, this fall, I bought a sugar bowl.

You'd think I'd started serving magic potions to people -- they LOVE my sugar bowl. I find I'm refilling it all the time, which is annoying, but also find that I have a lot more people sitting down to chat, waste an afternoon and stir some sugar into their coffee or tea. And that, I kinda like.
