Oh, the week I've seen.

B took last week off of work. It wasn't as restful and relaxing as we'd hoped. We didn't complete everything on our lists. But oh! I do love having that man home all day! Today is his first day back to work since October and it's rough getting back into our groove without him around.

Last week I baked bread. Real bread. Sliceable sandwich bread! I used the recipe here - except that I used coconut oil instead of shortening and cut the entire recipe in half. Aside from my huge slices (this is what happens without a real bread knife), it was very yummy though a bit crumby. Yesterday I made two more loaves - using butter this time. They look *scrumptious* and will be sliced up (with my new knife!) for lunch today. I also made hummus and flat bread. It was a busy week.

I finally finished the first leg on the longies I'm knitting. They look really nice. Here's the thing.. they're nearly as big as the baby is. Oops. They'll probably fit the Imp, though they may be a bit big on him as well.

We've had our first fires of the season. They boys are hooked - and we're out of wood. Isn't that always the way?


  1. oooh your bread looks great! I never seem to have much luck baking bread by hand though my chickens always ejoy my failed attempts:) your longies look great, hope there a good fit on the Imp.At least being too big they will get use and your bub will grow into them

  2. Love that pic of the giant pants next to Baby. :)

    And the bread looks divine!! I always want to make my own, but I don't have any confidence that I can make one that my two will actually eat - well, for sandwiches, anyway. hmmph.

  3. Stephanie: The bread was super easy. Seriously. And it tastes fairly plain - similar to Nature's Own (or generic) honey wheat bread. I look forward to adding things to it in the future.
