This is a little glimpse of an apron from "at home with the farmers wife" I was trying to take my own picture and my arms are too short. But you can see the details in the bib. Suzanne makes lovely aprons, out of recycled mens shirts and vintage fabrics. She even makes her own custom bias tape, very nice. I felt very elegant grinding grain and baking today.
The cupboards have been washed and tidied. This one was full of canned goods before.
I had everything crammed down here now we are all spread out nicely, it's so much easier to get to the things I need to use. Kayla helped a lot she did the scrubbing.
I took my cupboard doors off to see how I would like that farmhouse look. The idea is to recycle them into the laundry room. Hunny makes cabinets but not door fronts and they are expensive. I'm trying it out for a bit, what do you think? Look how clutter free everything is. I am beside myself.
It's been raining every day. I haven't taken a picture of the garden in awhile but here is some of the okra, and some apples. The apples are from Krogers, no false advertising here.
Today I did one of those things I do well. I baked. I made a batch of regular wheat bread. I also filled up my bin with the artisan dough to let it start getting sour.
As long as all this dough is happening might as well make some pizzas for dinner.
I actually managed to get the crust on this one thin and crispy. Pepperoni is a favorite here.
This one is pesto and sundried tomato as well as some fresh sliced tomatoes. It tasted sweet because the tomatoes are so ripe. Hunny and Kayla liked the pepperoni the best. Good more of this one for me.
The living room is back to normal. Wow. It's been weeks of work. Good things that you work hard for are so satisfiying. My kitchen is getting happier every day. It was so much easier to work in today. I had plenty of free counter top to work on, and it was easy to get at pans and racks. I was grinning like the cheshire cat.
The rescue that has Riley won't adopt out of state. I understand there concerns but isn't the whole point to get these dogs good homes? They are a bit over the top with their wanting to come and inspect your house and also they want you to cook for the dogs all organic food.
Actually I really don't care what they want. I want to give that adorable dog a home. He can sleep on my bed and that's as good as it gets.
I didn't mention it to the hunny until after I found out from them. He never had that moment of elevated blood pressure, except for the painting he is doing today. He hates painting. I used to do all of our painting every bit of it until I found out that he CAN paint. He just doesn't like to paint. Guess what? I don't do all the painting anymore.
Anybody for some pizza?
