Winter is colder this year than it's been for a while! Or maybe I just forget from year to year? I compare it to having a baby in some respects, as you forget about the pain as soon as you see those beautiful green "baby" shoots coming up out of the earth in Spring!
Of course...we've had a "hard" winter for this area, as we've had two significant snow storms which is unusual. Christmas day it began snowing late in the day, and it was beautiful! Then of course the other week we had quite a storm, i received about 5 inches at my house. We were "stuck" for about three days as our roads were horrible, all ice. We don't have the equipment they have in the northern states to clear the roads. Then, the sky tried to flurry at us again yesterday. I am not a snowbird....I enjoy looking outside at it, but don't particularly care for being house-bound for long. I did enjoy the few days, though, that my daughter Ginny and I were house-bound together because she and I are usually like ships passing in the night. We got to spend some "quality time" together...I even baked some homemade bread a few times and found she LOVES bread! (well, who doesn't?)
I am going to attempt making some sort of herb bread today, as well as the whole-wheat. If it is successful, I will try to remember to post the recipe. However, my grandson Tommy will be over tonite (he's a handful - he's 2 1/2) so I might be so worn out I'll forget to post!
Well cheers to all, and have an awesome weekend! I'm off to bake!
