Himself is in hospital once again with pneumonia. He was taken away by ambulance early Christmas Day. It's been such a stressful year and continues to be so. People tell me to be strong, stiff upper lip and all that crap and I'm trying but sometimes I feel like just letting go and have a good cry. I'm feeling a bit morose and sorry for myself this morning.
The weather has been dreadful. So much snow and cold. I think I've shoveled more so far this winter than I did all last winter. Dreadfully cold, waking to minus 18 temperatures. It's warmed up some this morning. Only minus 8.
I did get a chuckle when I got up this morning. This is how the story goes.....A couple of weeks ago I saw a recipe, can't remember what it was but it
called for bread dough so I figured I'd look for some frozen bread dough
as I haven't the patience to knead it as long as necessary. I found a
pack of three loafs at the corner store, bought it and put it in the
freezer. Then forgot about it until yesterday. I had a brilliant
idea, I'd make a loaf of bread. There were no instructions on it so I
googled and got info. They said to leave it out for about three hours,
it would rise then bake ya da ya da ya da. This was in the
afternoon. I greased a bread pan and laid the sucker in it, covered
with plastic wrap. By bedtime it hadn't moved so I said to self,
bugger all, it's a waste of time. This morning I got up, went in
kitchen and this massive white blob was facing me on the counter,
ahahahaha. I managed to fit it in the oven and now have it baked.
I'm almost afraid to cut into it, ahahaha. I guess because the
temperature in the house warmed up over night it defrosted and rose.
The cats are a bit disgruntled with the weather. Not wanting to go out and sleeping most of the days. This is Stanley and Tommy looking out the window at the snow coming down yesterday.
Sorry I haven't been following your blogs as I should have been. My mind has been unsettled for some time what with all that's been coming down.
So, my friends, here's a New Years wish for you:
