The sun is shining nicely but it's still cool! Even though the temp says 53, it feels like 43 cause of the wind. The temp is supposed to be much colder this week. I do not like cold weather. I'm ready for warmer days! We just don't usually have this many cold days, here! I'm contemplating planting tomato seeds soon, but the guy down the road says he doesn't start his until mid-February. I don't know if I can wait! I love to watch them grow! I hope to have more cardboard again this year to lay down for a weed barrier in the garden. I also hope to add some more blueberry bushes where the chicken run used to be. We closed that area off and added a different section for the hens. They seem happy with the new area, but last week I saw one running to the closed off run and bounce off the fence! I felt so sorry for her!
I've been working on the layout of the blog a bit. I like the new colors and I'm hoping I have the watermark figured out. I tried to change the favicon and add a signature but no success with either. I spent way too long to try again soon! Tech stuff doesn't come easy for me. I'd rather be making bread or jumping or something! I forgot to download the photos to picmonkey so I could watermark the them. Guess I'll have to figure out something else.
I wanted some English muffins for breakfast last week, so I looked through my stash of recipes and found one that sounded good. They turned out really good! I'm enjoying them with my eggs, or just alone with my homemade blackberry jelly. The recipe I use for my pizza dough is found at King Arthur Flour. I have the cookbook, but you can find it online on their website. It's the first one they post. It makes enough for three pizzas. I also found a super easy recipe using the Cuisinart that makes three doughs. I don't know which one I like better. I think the Cuisinart one, cause it's so quick!
The girls, all four of them came Friday and stayed until Saturday. Can you believe they all slept through the night without waking up? They did so good! I'm glad Ran was here to help cause with the baby, they are a handful! He enjoys them as well as I do. They may be here again this weekend as we will be celebrating Win's fourth birthday! So hard to believe she'll be four! They are growing up way too fast! The baby,even though she's small, is walking all over the place and climbing and saying words! She jabbers all the time! She's so cute! My house! Anyone want to volunteer to help clean? I didn't think so! Oh well, I had to clean it anyway!
I had to order a new rebounder. The one I got at first from Walmart was fine for a few days. Then my toes and feet started hurting, so I used my shoes. That didn't help. Then my knee started hurting so I told Ran this wasn't going to get it. I loved jumping on that thing so I decided to get a Cellerciser. I did a lot of reading and comparing before I chose this one. It's like jumping on a trampoline and the other one is like jumping on a brick! What a difference! I can hardly wait to get back on it tomorrow! It is so much fun!
I hope ya'll are staying full and warm! Have a nice week! Blessings from Bama!

|All done and cooling! They taste more like a yest roll until you toast them. They are probably as good as I'm going to make.|
