Today was a jelly making kind of day. I had some triple berries left and some strawberries left ..so the group got blended and made into jelly! I love to make jellies and jams , then fresh bread to go with. I did have some tiny lil loaf pans that I would make up at Christmas. then get baskets to put bread, fresh jam our homemade butter and some cookies in. Then on Christmas morning we would drive around to the neighbors (in the country neighbors are any one that regularly drives past your house within 5 miles) drop the baskets off and go home feeling great!
I would make up hot chocolate before we left so it would be waiting for us along with some excited boys itching to get at the stuff under the tree!
Tomorrow Gene is bringing over some strawberries for a batch of just strawberry jam for them. So will whip that out and then get on with other stuff. Would love to make some bread..but also know that I will eat all too much of it. That is a huge , gigantic weakness of mine! I love fresh bread, just the thought gets my taster juices flowing! I need to learn to make decent flat bread . I have tried my hand at it a few times with very little luck.
The break is a great time for me to get some planning and rearranging of my schedule to move exercise inside as the weather cools and it becomes necessary . Anyone remember the scene from Road House where Patrick Swazy goes out and does Tia Chi on the deck?
I loved that scene and it is honestly one thing that got me interested in Tia Chi!! You did see Road House..right? if not...ya gotta rent it...great movie!! Almost up there with Dirty Dancing!!
Dern all I can do now is think about
Time for some
Nite ya'al...tomorrow is mid week...moving forward every day !!
