November Thankfulness - The Proper Tools

Monday evening my chapter made cheeseballs.  Hundreds of cheeseballs.  (need one?)

Monday morning, all the supplies were delivered to school, and that evening we all hauled our mixers into the kitchen and started the assembly line.  Proper tool #1 - a KitchenAid mixer.  Perhaps the best gift I ever coerced Clay into buying for me.  Here's mine, in pink:

I had to guard her closely -- some sisters with plain white mixers thought it would be a good idea to trade.

Unfortunately, the nuts we ordered were not chopped, so I called Will and he brought in Proper Tool #2, my Cuisinart:
which makes fast work of almost anything.

After the chopping and mixing, the forming of the cheeseballs began.  The only proper tool for this is #3 - hands.

So today, I am thankful for my hands, which are my proper tools for all the things I like best -- playing the piano, knitting, quilting. turning book pages, turning soil and hugging.
