Well, after my last post, things kept happening...
The drain pipe for our tub burst leaving our kitchen and basement flooded.
In its wake, I ended up throwing out food and parts of the ceiling
(and at times both in one mushy handful.)
Then I called my mom.
"At least everyone has their health."
Mom why did you have to jinx us.
W. got sick the very next day with a fever of 103.6
Well life goes on.
Making honey wheat bagels.
The recipe I used I decided was too sweet.
Next time I won't use so much honey.
Maybe when I get the recipe perfected, I'll post on that.
Making popcorn. A true comfort food.
All of our paper bags were destroyed in the flood,
so I made in in a pot the old fashioned way.
I've always been afraid of this method ever since my cousins got really bad burns from hot oil while making popcorn this way many years ago.
Studying plants. This is our lavender that we planted a few days ago in coconut coir.
The onions are starting to poke their little leaves up as well. We also started sweet potatoes, but we'll see what happens there...it is a big experiment for us this year to attempt those.
I am thankful that we have so many opportunities.
That our pipe burst didn't destroy too much.
That we did not truly have a flood such as many have to endure.
Things could be much worse.
