Turkeys and catch'n up! (no knitting this time)

Here is the first loaf of bread from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I made the basic recipe to start with. I can't wait to get into the others though.

Of course I didn't think to click a picture until the pretty loaf was already cut. It was perfect. It took me about 15 minutes to get the batch prepared early yesterday morning. I think that was just my learning curve. I can see where it will be 5 minutes to put everything together. I love that the dough will keep in the fridge for 14 days. Warm bread after work anyone? OH my!

I planted some of the seedlings yesterday. The tomatoes didn't like me so I think I will be replanting some of those perhaps next weekend. Just a little to soon for them yet.

Here is a picture of the new dining room floor. The picture isn't the greatest. I will try again on a better light day.

Saturday afternoon I went with Jimmy so he could practice bowl. He is starting a new summer league this week. Here is an action shot. He recently went down a pound in bowling ball and is shooting strikes like crazy and had two games well into the 200's.

And I kept seeing these turkeys flashing on the scoreboard. :-)

Mmm, the bread looks really good! Also, I had to say that I love the pic of your kitty -- beautiful shot of eye color, pink nose, and fluffy fur :-)

What, may I ask, are those round/oval things made from that are holding seedlings?

Ria that book is awesome. I recommend it.

Jackie those little things are specifically for seed starting. There is a picture in this posting

They are cool. You add water and they puff up allowing you to sow the seeds. Then just keep them wet till the seeds spout. No mess or fuss. I have used them 4 years in a row now and they work awesome. I pick them up in Lowes.
