Things on a Thursday

Things I am doing on this Thursday is making my first batch of sour dough bread!

The recipe I used was for a Honey Wheat Sour Dough.

It is rising!
It is rising!


The other thing that I am doing is working on getting the house ready for a visitor.

This cute little guy!



Our grandson is coming for a visit!


The pipeliner and I are so excited !




My daughter is transitioning out of the Army.
 Her boyfriend ended his time with the Army in November.

They have decided to move from North Carolina to Washington.

Their house is packed up.
They have to be out by May 1st.
The boyfriend is driving the first truckfull of their belongings across the country.

The daughter has to stay in the Army until all paper work is complete.
It might be anywhere from 2 - 4 weeks.

So grandma and grandpa get to babysit for that time!

We haven't seen the little guy since he was 2 weeks old.

It sure will be a big change for us!

I haven't had a baby in the house since my daughter was little.

Just hoping everything goes smoothly!

I know this grandma is going to love every minute!

  11. Nothin' is better than a cute grand baby! And how did your bread turn out? Once you taste homemade sourdough products, there's no turning back!
