Brrrrr. Woke up to 23.7 degrees. Anything that's not perennial is definitely dead now. The boys bundled themselves up complete with stocking hats and their heavy ski gloves before facing the elements at the bus stop.

Thing 2 is all excited. We're spending a good part of tomorrow baking. Chocolate chip cookies and one or two kinds of bread are on the list of things he wants to make. We're on our last loaf of white sandwich bread, and we could use some light wheat or whole wheat bread as well. I'd like to try out these Holiday Rolls too, as I think they would go very well with the turkey for Thanksgiving. I want to try them first rather than make them for the first time on T-day.

Forgive me for such a lame post. All I can say is I was attacked by a dementor today. Mr. E brought me a Pumpkin Pie Blizzard, which, although it wasn't chocolate, helped a little. Frankly, it was damn good. But all I can think of doing is crawling in bed with Sense and Sensibility, which I'm reading for only the fourth time.

Better and brighter tomorrow.

I am visiting via the randomizer. Love your blog. I just started blogging in June. We are north of you in the Edmonton Alberta area. We are getting some snow right now, but otherwise it has been quite warm. I have a garden, we try to be self sufficient on our acreage and with my family's farms. I love to cook, and I home school, so cooking and baking have been used as lessons. I have a BSc. in Food Science and Technology so I have the science behind the food. Needless to say, I got a little giddy when you mentioned that portion of your baking day. I have a root cellar, did a post on it a few weeks ago, and we have a new wood cook stove featured on a recent post. I would love to have you visit my blog. Leave a comment or I will never find you again (no memory). I had a great visit at your blog.

Oh, and look at that, I meant to comment on your post above. Messed up in all that excitement.
