Sunday Night Chit-Chat
Hi! And welcome to my episode of the Sunday Night Chit-Chat started each week by the very talented Carla over at My 1/2 Dozen Daily! Carla's bonus question last week (which I missed) was what website do you check every day (or something like that). Well, mine would have to be Carla's! I gain so much inspiration from her blog. The second one is The Breast Cancer Site because I go there to "click" almost every day!
I have been baking my way through the homemade bread recipe book from the editors of Hobby Home Farm magazine. Friday I made Basil and Sundried Tomato Bread! I really liked it but it was not a winner with family and friends:( They really liked the Rosemary Bread and Double Dill Rye better. They all said their favorite so far is my 100% Whole Wheat Bread.
So, on with the Chit-Chat!
Reading...Just finished all three books in the Annie's People series by Beverly Lewis. I am currently reading Dear John by Nicholas Sparks. Our read aloud is Hiking Through by Paul Stutzman! Wow! What a great book and I have Carla to thank for the great review on this book! We are loving it and I am itching to hike the Appalachian Trail! That being said by a non-hiker!
Watching...Not sure. My son bought some new inspirational movies so we might watch one of those tonight. Maybe The Note 3.
Listening to...Flies buzzing around...nasty:( I have a fly strip up and slowly but surely they are getting stuck! Soon no buzzing:)
Cooking/baking...Cookies! Lots of cookies!!! Hubby will be working away this week, camping on the job so wanted Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies to take with. He also wanted homemade granola but already had that baked and ready to go:) We tasted our homemade sauerkraut the other day and it is super scrumptious! He will be taking some of that with him as well.
Happy you accomplished this week...I blogged more after several days off. I read three books last week plus got ready for stamping club!
Looking forward to next week...I don't look forward to hubby being absent all week but am looking forward to the opportunity it presents! I have a LONG list of things I plan to accomplish while he is gone. When he's gone I get up early and go to bed late. So I am looking forward to seeing how much I can get done before he gets home on Friday. I will keep you posted during the week.
Thankful for today...I have to agree with Carla on this one...my sweet hubby! Without his hard work I would not have been able to quit working two years ago. I was able to be a SAHM to my kids for their growing up years and now am able to be retired early to reduce the stress in my life so I have better health! Plus he does health/nutrition research to find ways that I can live a "normal" life with fibromyalgia without medication.
I receive an unexpected lump sum of money. It's a BIG number. What's the first thing you do with it? Okay, the first thing is easy. I would pay 10% tithe. Then I would get hubby the new motorcycle helmet he wants that's nearly $700. I would then get me an iPad. Next I would hire someone to come help me organize my office and craft room. Then the rest would go into savings!!! Boy! Did I over answer that question or what?!!!
Thank you for joining me for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat. I hope you will pop over to Carla's Sunday Night Chit-Chat to see how she and others answered the questions. Always fun:)
I will be back tomorrow with some more fun swap cards plus will be posting some of my own cards this week as well! Have a great Sunday evening!
