Things of today.... or what to do with a day off.

I got the day off work!!!
got up good and early........ er.... um.... if you consider 9:30 am early.

I'm making some delicious whole wheat - flax seed - sunflower seed bread.

Whole wheat bread recipe

Here is the recipe I used.... and altered.

I replaced 3/4 cup of white flour for ground flax seed.
I added 1/4 cup of molasses.
I added 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds.

We've put ourselves on a budget....... been spending WAY too much on groceries. We figure we'll save a few bucks by making our own bread two or three times a week. It's not even that hard or time consuming and it smells sooooooo good!!!

We are also trying to loose weight. Halloween always leaves us with a few more pounds on the rump roast than we need. I'm also still dealing with body changes after the gallbladder loss and the quitting of smoking. I'm getting round!
The bread baking might not be helping us lose weight.

Fully baked delicious bread! Seriously, I wish you guys could smell this!

I know I should wait till meal time but I just can't.
Sooooooooo good!

I have pointed out my blue mylar nails of the previous week. I do love me the stiletto shape.

I tried to get a close up of the thumbso you can see the sparklie mylar, sea shells and gold leaf embedded in there but it came out blurry. I need to put some surface paint on these ones soon.

Here is the first Christmas Fascinator. I got the blingie festiveness from Michaels craft store and put it all together with E6000 jewlery glue. It's on a hair clip so I can wear it in my hair or on my work coat as a brooch.
