Last remnants of the holiday

My brother stopped by with a container of cookies he made with Robin and company. I made no resolutions about eating fewer cookies.

In other news, I got a new kitchen knife today. Somewhere I read you shouldn’t give or receive knives as gifts, it severs ties with the recipient.

Now that I am clear of mind having researched this thoroughly on the internet, attaching a coin to the knife can solve this problem…

“The coin must be promptly removed and returned to the giver as a form of symbolic payment. This transaction prevents the relationship from cutting. The knife is seen as instantly “purchased,” which releases the giver from any negativities that might have otherwise resulted from its use.” — Oishya journal

I guess I could’ve put one on my wish list after all.
