One of our work-study students found the King Cake baby. She is supposed to provide the cake next year.
But she just thought she had to get us a cake. So, on Friday, she brought in this! She’s awesome. Actually, Laney’s awesome because she sent the King Cake.
A student presented on her study abroad experience in Jordan – wow, what an interesting and different place to study abroad – and brought us traditional cookies. They were like a spiced shortbread cookie with a cinnamon roasted almond on top. I’ve spent too much time trying to find a recipe for them online. I’m just going to have to write to her for a recipe request!
Earlier this week – when we had snow for a day – I ran an errand across campus and put on my Canada mittens from Chelsea. So sweet. I love them!
A co-worker’s friend is a florist. She had some roses that weren’t good enough for bouquets, so we got them. It really brightened up the office, and they had a subtle, sweet fragrance.
Essentially, cake and roses make the work place a better place.
