I’m not going to lie, this has been a tough week on the work front. Too much to do and not enough time to do it. So, it totally makes sense that I took an hour out of my day yesterday for a Knife Skills Class my company was offering. I knew I didn’t have a minute to spare, but I really needed to get away from my computer and getting my hands on a knife sure sounded appealing so off I went.

I am SO glad I did!

First off, it was upstairs in our cafe which faces out to the bay and Alcatraz. It was so nice to see something other than my computer screen! The Knife Skills class was hosted and taught by representatives of the J.A. Henckels company and was really fun. I learned how to hold a knife (which I’ve been doing completely wrong), protect my fingers (which I’ve been doing completely wrong), and sharpen a knife (which I’ve never done). It was really a nice break and lifted my spirits immensely…best part, I didn’t want to stab anyone any more! Yay!

The view...before everyone else arrived
