This has been a challenging
week. Getting back home from
two weeks of fun and sun.
A Nor'Easter on Sunday into
Monday with temperatures near
zero. There was beauty in the
It helps to know
that it may have been the last
big one for this year.
It was also wonderful to have
the offer of help from two
neighbors as it related to getting
Mikey to work and clearing driveways.
One neighbor, Jim, cleared Georgia's
driveway...That was way cool.
Saved Warren nearly an hour I would
think! It was done in no time while
Warren cleared our's and Mom's.
We once again enjoyed dinner on
Wednesday evening with our Moms.
This time Georgia was the hostess.
It was a lovely meal and I was able
my freshly baked French Sweet Bread!
I did it!
Made my first ever from scratch bread.
Karen, from Blue Barn Bulletin, blessed me
with a handful of recipes to try...
Right now if you go to Karen's blog
you will find a recipe for lemon poppyseed
scones that sound delightful!
I have used the bread machine and boxed
recipes, frozen dough, banana breads and
things like that but I have always been
afraid to try yeast bread from scratch.
Other bloggers examples and encouragement
made this an important milestone for me.
Both loaves were gone that same evening.

My students at our homeschool co-op
seemed happy to see me yesterday.
I loved the hugs and the huge smiles.
Blesses this "old" heart.
In the elementary music class
we are watching "The Music Man".
What a creative use of music in that
film. I think the class will get a real
kick out of it.
I made up a madlib about a music
class whose teacher had gone on
a trip and used the beach, sandcastle,
rollercoasters and animals we saw.
They filled in most of the adjectives
and verbs for the story.
It turned out quite funny.
These children very much enjoy madlibs.
Well, today is a new adventure...
who knows what it will bring.
But I am ever thankful for my
Lord, my family and very precious friends.
I am thankful for YOU!
Have a truly Beautiful Day!
