Wow. Made it to the weekend. Finally. And despite how beautiful the weather has been for going to the beach, I just haven't had the energy. Weird.
This past week was tough. I had a lot going on at school, reviewing for the SOL test, and I had a bad headache at least two out of the four days. Stress and allergies is my diagnosis. I also had a couple of nights out, one for a friend's birthday, and the other a Jimmy Buffett concert with my sister, which was her birthday present from me. Turned out to be lots of fun, despite my being tired. I think this makes the third time I've seen Buffett and he always puts on a fabulous show; this time was no exception. A great way to kick off the summer, plus it was great doing something fun like that with my little sister. There's nothing like sitting out on the grass on a warm night, listening to music.
I've been wanting to sew lately, but I seem to be dragging my feet for some reason. So I decided to tackle making some fabric bread bags, ala SouleMama. I've been baking bread, despite the heat, but either I had some old whole wheat flour or I've lost my touch. So after two batches of yucky tasting bread, I tossed what was left of the wheat flour and bought a new bag. I'm starting another batch right now and if this doesn't turn out right, I don't know what I'll do.
This is the French Beer Bread I made last weekend; tasted terrible, although it looks good.
These two are the loaves I made with the new flour; they look terrible, but I'm hoping they taste good.I've put them both in the new bread bags I made, to give as a gift to my parents; today is their 52nd anniversary. I can't even imagine being married that long, but I'm glad they did. And are.
Happy Anniversary to my mom and dad!
Other than that, there's not a whole lot going on here at the beach cottage other than reading and sleeping late. Maybe a little knitting. Come to think of it, that's a pretty good weekend, isn't it?
