A Mostly Sunny Day

It rained during the night again but today was a mostly sunny day--it felt so good and made everything around us a vivid green. I forgot to mention yesterday's exercise program--Michael had me picking up rocks from the hillside for the front of the garage--big time manual labor!

Today was our friend Larry's birthday and he is working as a carpenter on a remodel job for our friends Nancy and Geoff who live one mile up the road from us. After our walk this morning, I baked cookies and Michael and I took them up to Larry and the rest of the crew.

When we got back, Michael attempted to do some stock market research and I mixed up a batch of Cheese Bread from the Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day. The breads from this cookbook are mixed, allowed to rise for a couple of hours then refrigerated. When you are ready to bake bread, you pull off a piece of the refrigerated dough, let it rise for less than an hour and pop it in the oven. No kneading. The dough will last in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks. As I type this the smell of it is driving us crazy, can't wait for it to cool a little so we can try it out.

After lunch I quilted after practicing a lot of different filler ideas for the rest of my Aunt's quilt. Michael (poor thing) laid some more rocks on the front of the garage, I will try to remember to take some photos tomorrow so everyone can see his progress.
