No.. Just raisin bread today!..
But I do seem to be on a roll as far as productivity goes! I only wish my productivity didn't keep me UP until 3:30 in the morning! I started this bread sometime last night...
and I hesitated, wondering if it was too late to start it or not; but of course my good sense (ahem) told me, "Awwwww, go ahead!", and so I did!
Now, don't get me wrong. I love THIS RECIPE, and many thanks to The Pioneer Woman for sharing it. It was very easy to do, but with what fair amount of TIME it takes... to let the dough rise, and rise again, and THEN bake... Let's just say, I simply know better now to start this at an earlier hour! Come morning, Dear Son and I did have some for breakfast, and it was delicious!
Moving onto the topic of crochet, I just finished this little somethin-somethin I was working on for my kitchen. I had trouble with one pattern, and unfortunately had to toss that small waste of yarn into the garbage can; but then I remembered the mandala pattern, from Crochet with Raymond.....
and the finished result was exactly what I envisioned all the long! I had a black vinyl seat on this kitchen/bar stool I have, that was just starting to show some wear and tear; and you can imagine how the black electrical tape I used to fix it was a bit unsightly, so I decided to crochet a cover for it.
Once I found the right pattern I liked, simply altering it with a side, and a hidden drawstring closure at the bottom, I was able to whip this up in no time at all, and I'm really happy with it! Now, I'm just wondering if I should make a second one, for when I have to wash this one.
Anyways, as I was waiting for my bread to bake late into last night, I had fun just dabbling in my journal with some paints, markers, stencils, and all that sort. As I was flipping through the t.v. channels, I was inspired by a sermon aired on t.v. just recently, where the topic was remembering to take good care of the kid in you.
So this is what I put to paper after having seen that. I also did another little quick and simple spread, remembering one of my very favorite lines in the book, by Kathryn Stockett, and movie, The Help.
Just a little somethin' we ALL should remember!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
