Sleepy Sunday

Scott had left for work hours before I woke up.

This past week has been cold-yet-still-above-average and rainy. That's good for the outside now that everything is green, but it's been too cold for my peppers to sprout indoors. I'm glad I started them early though.

Before I have breakfast I have a cup of hot water and lemon.

I also got started on this weeks bread dough.

I have to, of course, have my favorite for breakfast. Steel-cut oats.

I had originally thought today would be a perfect day for doing laundry. It was actually sunny out, but when I got outside it was a lot colder than I had anticipated. It wasn't quite freezing so I hung it out anyway.

I then take a mandarin break.

The dough is ready to be rolled out. I do three pieces a bigger size and three a smaller size.

I braid the strands creating two loaves. I place the smaller loaf on top of the bigger one and let it proof at room temperature.

For lunch I have a leftover stir-fry.

The cheesecake on the left is actually red velvet with cheesecake in the middle. The other night Scott and I went over to Cevonne and Jose's for dinner. I wish we had taken pictures because Jose had made paella.

Cevonne did take a picture of me eating my first mussel with her cell phone.

Back to the cake. I didn't have enough red dye and didn't really want to buy more so I looked up a natural red food color and found a recipe that uses beets. I actually like the color that it created instead of the bright red that you usually see with red velvet. It did taste a little like beets at first, but after awhile it seemed to go away or maybe I stopped thinking about it.
And the bread this week is Cranberry Walnut Celebration bread. It is kind of a dessert bread in that it has orange extract in it and is very moist. I would definitely make this again for Thanksgiving.

When Scott returned home from work the first thing he did was eat cake.

Just so you know, I did not eat the whole thing.

He whined and complained that I didn't clean the bathrooms like I said I would. If you cleaned 15 toilets in one week I don't think you would want to clean 3 more on your day off.

He then fell asleep so I went ahead and dusted the house and cleaned the bathrooms.

While he brought in the laundry and made dinner I decided it was my turn to lay down.

I just wanted to prove that I'm not the only one who takes naps. Seeing that I mostly work evening shifts, I get tired when I have to work early.

I made Sun-dried Tomato, Basil and Feta Frittata for dinner. Brooke loves eggs. I think that's because it reminds her of breakfast.

After dinner, while I do dishes, Scott goes straight to the TV. He couldn't remember the last time he did dishes so while he did those I got to watch TV.

This was a pretty momentous occasion to watch Brooke enjoying the boob tube. I had to take a picture.

We finished the night with Toy Story 3.  It was pretty good (though I saw the last half-hour at work one day), but not at the same level as Up! or Wall-E. This picture above cracks me up.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part I

Theo and I go for a walks or wagon rides while Meadow finishes up her school work. This is also the last photo we have of "baby," his blue teddy bear. Missing you "baby" aka Blue Boo.
Baby went missing and we can't figure out where he is. 
Meadow has been on a sewing streak again. This time she made a skirt with some leftover fabric from a dress I made her.
She wanted to add the zig zag design to it too.

Another one of those papa and Theo walks around the block. He's not fast, but he loves his balance bike.
Theo has suddenly wanted to join in our wiffle ball games. 
Meadow and her outfits.

I'm more confused by the two weirdos playing horsey down our long driveway.
Our local liquor store does curb side pickup and puts your order in your trunk for you. Or in our case our bike trailer.

Of course I wear mask when I'm picking the beer up.


This about it this week. Kind of uneventful.

Coronavirus: Week 5 - Easter Etc.

Despite the coronavirus the Easter Bunny still came. Meadow had put a note on our door for the bunny that the baskets were by the front door. So then he wouldn't have to come into our place.



We don't want the Easter Bunny to spread the virus.
