Those loaves look amazing.
They smell wonderful. I made 18 yesterday, which have already been picked up. Last night and today, I made 32 more, which she will be by to pick up soon. There are 8 more in the oven, and more will follow those. I have a very small kitchen. We can't eat at the table right now, as it's covered in loaf pans, and Mr. B had to set up some shelves for the rest! :)
66 loaves of bread.. wow.
Lucky for me, the recipe makes 3 loaves at a time, and my oven can handle 8. They bought the ingredients for me, then I'll be paid per loaf, too. Not a terrible way to earn a little extra money!
I spy Old Christmas by Washington Irving. One of all my all time favorite Christmas stories!!! I have a beautiful little red leather and gold-ish looking edition that I stole from my mother and I just treasure it! Love your autumn tree pic!!
And I've never read it! I hunted this copy down at the library, along with some fabulously obscure old books. I have a huge Christmas haul already! And thanks - I took that today with the phone. I almost ran in to get the good camera, because the crows were EVERYWHERE! It was a bit drizzly, though.
Great post! I love the ballet class shots! I wonder if my baby girl will one day like to try ballet. And how awesome is that you can bake bread and make money too! It must have smell so good in your house!
Both of my girls started dance when they were 3 1/2. We began in the summer, before they started preschool, and it was a nice way to socialize them. I always wished I would have taken dance; it would have come in handy in theatre. It smells wonderful in here. My last 7 loaves are in the oven right now, for a grand total of 69! I made an extra batch (3 loaves), because she thought she might want to buy some for her family, too. :)
Lovely things to be thankful for. I'm happy for you, my dear :)
Thank you, darling! And I hope all is well with you. :)
I am thankful for this blog :) ... The crows! Yesterday morning I saw crows in the street and I was thinking how weird/strange/rare they are. I even wrote to my best friend: “Have you ever think about crows?” And she wrote me back: “Don't try to catch them, they are very clever!” :) I must find some special children's book about crows. Do you know any?
Aww, thank you. You're so sweet! The only kids' book about crows that comes to mind is The Crows of Pearblossom by Aldous Huxley. It was first published in the 1960s, with illustrations by Barbara Cooney. A new edition was re-printed a few years ago with illustrations by Sophie Blackall. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crows_of_Pearblossom
Oh yeah! The Crows of Pearblossom! It was published even in Czech language! Cool... :) Have a great time, Danzel. Looking forward to read about Christmas books you found!
