Well, my library fine finally showed up in my account so I paid it so they didn’t send me to collections. I’m still praying that we find the book; I’d sure like to get part of my $25.00 back!
I should have known better than to recommend a book that I had checked out from the library until after I was done with it and returned it. My Loving the Little Years book is overdue now and there are holds so I can’t renew it. :P
Earlier this week, I made lasagna with the help of a few of my kiddos. Jeremy has a strong dislike of lasagna but I’ve found a way to make it that he loves, so it’s family favorite now. (I’ll share the recipe sometime, but it’s a lot of work, LOL.) We made two pans and froze one for later.
Yesterday, I made Cinnamon Raisin Bread with the Buttermilk Bread Dough from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. It was delicious, and I’m not sure the three loaves I made are going to last through today! I need to get back into the habit of making the bread dough, but it’s gotten harder to make room for a big bowl of dough in my refrigerator.
Last night I told Jeremy that I don’t enjoy the snow as much as I used to. I have all of these grand visions of just sitting around and enjoying the snow but these kids of mine don’t seem to appreciate a good snow in the same way that I do. They just keep yelling and carrying on as if nothing ever happened, and I can’t sit around and enjoy the peace and quiet that snow used to symbolize to me. :)
Today we are doing school (no school days for homeschoolers!) and I’m working hard on From Garbage to Gourmet. I am getting so excited; it’s a couple of weeks from being done and I feel like I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I’ll keep you posted, but you won’t want to miss the two-day sale when it debuts in March!
