Updates and the Ulu

A little update on us:

Ray is back to being a guidance counselor at the high school on an "as needed basis". He puts in a few hours every day but if we have plans, he just takes the day off - nice job!!! He has plenty of time for his biking and walking each day. He worked outside all of Sunday afternoon in one of his many gardens.

My sciatica is improving but I'm still in 'quiet' mode. However, I walked for 15 minutes on the treadmill this morning - hurray!!! It didn't feel great but was fine when I held on (Thanks Tom!). I've been getting some fuits and vegetables in the freezer. I have a peach cobbler in the oven - I'm sure none of it will see the freezer! And I keep quilting but it's all baby quilts that I can't show yet!

I do think I have mastered using our new Ulu. We got it in Alaska at The Ulu Factory in Anchorage and I love it for slicing and dicing.
The cutting board is a shallow bowl on one side
and flat on the other.
Our Ulu is very easy to use and my hand doesn't get tired as fast as using a knife.


  1. Very intersting new tool! Our peaches will be ripe enough tomorrow for a cobbler - yum.

  2. I've never heard of an Ulu but it looks cool. I love kitchen gadgets. Now, I suppose the only place a person can find one is in Alaska, right?

  3. You can order them from the Ulu Factory!
