Happy Virtual Chanukah: Day 4

I missed Virtual Chanukah Day 3, due to a combination of factors (wonky internet, salsa, teaching, poor planning), but here we are now, which is (hopefully) what counts. Today is dedicated to my grandmother, who is about 10,000 times better traveled, better read, and at 82, in better shape, than I am.

Glass and silicon water bottle (the space or julep one), because it's safer and prettier than the plastic bottles that we've all used forever

Blue blazerbecause it would look great on her.
Clarice Lispector was a young Jewish immigrant who turned into one of Brazil's most well-known literary figures. Her short essays, for when she has lots of broken-up free time.

Super comfortable shearling-lined shoes, for Colorado winters.

Ancient Grains cookbook, because she has been eating wild rice and tofu since way before it was trendy (not to mention an enormous amount of Grape Nuts in the 90´s!)
Baltic amber lamp, for warm reading light.

Ice cream soda glasses, because I've eaten more ice cream sodas with my grandmother than with everyone else combined. A nice way to make them at home (and so that we can make them when I visit!)

And last but not least, a massage gift card, because people who spend all of their time taking care of others need to be taken care of too.
