“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

Or so the saying goes. (This nugget is often attributed to Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, or George Bernard Shaw, however, none of them actually said it.  Click here for more info.)

Anyway, I misplaced my set of measuring spoons.  Not just one spoon but the entire set. They usually hang on that little peg on the left side of my kitchen cabinet right next to the spices.  kitchen cabinet where spoons should be

I have been looking for them for about two weeks.  And I seem to look repeatedly in the same places expecting them to magically show up!  Hence the insanity quote.  Obviously, I’m not looking in the right places as they are still missing.

I can’t imagine that I threw them away but it’s possible.

We like love homemade* bread, pizza, and stromboli and I need to measure things.

So I broke down and bought another cabinet with spoons

Now that the new set is hanging on that special peg, I’m still hoping the other set reappears.  I’ll let you know!

* We do not use the oven in the summer but have figured out how to bake on our grill.  The neighbors have commented on the lovely aroma of freshly baked bread.

On another topic –  I was going to give an update of some of the other things happening around here. I swear I took pictures of various projects and the two pairs of socks I finished last month but alas, I evidently did not as they are not on my camera.

  1. Unfortunately, I can relate very much to your ordeal. Oddly, I recently had my stainless measuring spoons to go missing also. I bought a cheap temporary plastic set only to find my stainless ones the next day! I’ll be keeping the plastic ones around just in case I need them again (and I know that’ll be soon!)

  2. It seems like my lost items rarely are found…however when they do turn up I can’t believe where I find them. Right now we are missing a battery lantern for when the power goes out. I put it someplace that I would remember that it… good hiding place. Looking for it for at least 4 months.


Your thoughts? I read them all.
