It was a good day

I made two loaves of whole wheat bread today. They turned out fantastic. Why did I stop making bread? Why does anyone stop making bread? I decided, as I was forming my dough into loaves...running the homemade dough through my hands, that it was one of the most satisfying things in life. Making healthy homemade bread for your family. But I was wrong. The most satisfying thing in life is eating that bread. After coating it with butter while it's still warm. Mmmmmmmm. Satisfaction. I'm pretty sure I'll have satisfaction again tomorrow when I make us deliciously healthy smoothies, whilst toasting my homemade wheat bread and then taking them to work...and partaking of the goodness. Life can be very good sometimes.

Another thing I did today was gather lots of clothes that I will never wear again. Which is really sad because they are super cute, but I've BARELY worn them...cause they never really fit great to begin with. It was kinda like...I tried them on in the store...saw that they were cutting it close, or weren't quite right in some places....but got the item anyway because it was sooooooooo cute. So I basically bought it HOPING that it would look cuter when I actually wear it. Which leads to me barely wearing the outfit at all. So- to summarize...I gathered up clothes where the clothing was actually in GREAT shape- fabric in pristine condition...that I would never wear again. And I took them to my sewing room. I like to re-purpose things. Pretty soon I'll show you how I made a SAWEET pillow for my bed, out of an old dress Patty gave me that she hasn't worn for years. Today I took an old blazer that has shoulder pads and is really 80'sish that Patty also gave me (she cleaned out her closet a while ago and let me sift through it) and the fabric was GREAT- so I made it into a bag. Or...it's in the process of becoming a bag. So far- it looks GREAT! I can't wait to finish and show you guys. I'm just trying to figure out what to do about a handle. We'll see.

I also worked today. But there's never really anything fun to report about that.

Well...I'm thirsty...tired...and need to put the bread away. Till next time.

Someone else in the family was talking about bread the same way. How it's so satisfying. I really don't think I'll ever do it. I'm all about fast and simple- and homemade bread . . . is not. Sounds yummy though. Hey, when are you visiting. Aren't you visiting? I need to write that down so I can come visit. All your "recreates" sound awesome. Can't wait to see it. You're inspiring.

Sometimes life feels perfect. One night after we moved I was determined to make a difference. I thought about how wonderful life was and stuff. The next morning wasn't feelin it. We have bad days and good days. Just depends on our attitude. :)
