From My Grandmother

When I was little,
my grandmother used to say this to me
when she tucked me in at bedtime. 

I loved it and I loved her.

As I walked over the hill one day,
I listened, and heard a mother sheep say:

"In all the green world there's nothing so sweet
As my little lammie, with his nimble feet.

With his eyes so bright,
And his wool so white,
Oh, he is my darling, my heart's delight!"

Favorite Product--Zoji Travel Mug

This is one of the best things we’ve bought in a long time!

In fact, I got one, gave it to Mr. Man, AKA Mr. Coffee Drinker, and ordered myself another one.

It’s a travel mug, but it is like super-mega-unbelievably-insulated.  Mr. Man brews his coffee before he leaves for work, and it stays so warm, he sips on it until about 2 p.m.! 

It stays that hot. 

(They even warn you not to drink it in the car because you might burn yourself.)

But it also keeps things wonderfully cold.  Mr. Man had some crushed ice in it one night and accidentally left it in there all the next day, and when he poured it out the next morning, there was still crushed ice in it!

I am so looking forward to running errands in the heat this summer with an ice-cold drink in this thing! 

(It has a wide mouth so you can use regular ice cubes.  How perfect is that?)

It seems there were 3 criteria for a good travel mug:  1.  keeping coffee warm, 2. easy to clean, and 3. no leaking.  This fulfills all 3 and then some.

I especially love how it holds a whopping 16 oz., but it’s still nice and slim for my small hands.  (it has a nice very hand feel)

The maker is really “Zojirushi”, and of course I found it on Amazon with a ton of good reviews.   Here’s the link:  Zojirushi Travel Thermos Mug   It comes in different colors and different sizes.

(p.s.  They make a really good rice cooker, too.)
