that's what today is all about.

school was pushed back a lovely 2 hours (for sleeping-in) this morning.. thank you, Lord, for lots of snow! and i decided to make bread, because that's what i think should be done on a snowy morning in january, when you have no place to go and plenty of time to do dishes.

this recipe has always turned out so great in my kitchen, so i'm guessing it would in yours, too. the loaf gets nice and tall every time, i just love it!! it makes a girl feel like a bona fide bread baker. it also feels like i can't wait to make sandwiches.

on a different note, there's a baby post to come soon.. which leads me to wonder, how interested are you guys in my baby ramblings? hmmm. i'm sure i could talk about it everyday, but i'll hold back:)

happy monday, my friends!!

thanks so much for the feedback, everyone!! you are wonderful! and you can count on me talking:)

That bread looks Amazing! I can't wait to try the recipe. We're supposed to get a bunch of snow tomorrow. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

Yum to homemade bread. It is on my list of things to do tomorrow as a snow storm blows in. Oh and about the baby ramblings? You could post every day. I don't think any of us would mind :)

I FINALLY got that snow I've been praying and hoping for since October. I'm snowed in! I wish I would have thought about making bread earlier. That would have been perfect.

Don't hold back on those baby ramblings! I want to hear all of them!

that bread looks great. how necessary is the molasses? any substitutions?

as for baby ramblings, bring 'em on!

Christina said...

Go for it! Talk about baby stuff every day if you want to. You only get to expect your first little one once. If there's a next time around, you'll have much less time for journaling.

And snowy trees and bread are lovely...perhaps I'll motivate myself to go upstairs and make rolls for dinner to go with OUR snowy trees!

I would so listen to baby rambles. And I'm trying that bread.

Dee said...

Summer, yes please on the baby posts! I'm about a month behind you being pregnant with twins and would love to hear your experience! They are my first so I'm intrigued by every little detail :)
Also, we're waiting to find out the genders, too. Everybody is trying to talk me out of it but I've always wanted to wait. It sounds exciting!

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
