That's what I've been. Yesterday I had full day. I worked in the office, went grocery shopping, returned some shoes that I bought and looked for a new bread machine. Then I came home made split pea soup and made one batch of rolls which came out of the oven just in time for me to take Lauren to the Doctors for a sports physical. Do you know that you can't find a bread machine anywhere? I went to two stores, called 3 stores and finally found one. I usually get mine at the Salvation Army. But, the last time I went to look for another one was about a month ago and I didn't see any. If you hit it right you can really get a good one. I found the one I have for $8.00 about a year ago, but I need another one. Well, I don't really need one. I want another one. I make so many rolls at a time it helps to have 2 machines. (Don't even ask how many crock pots I have) I usually use my sisters bread machine but I thought I would just get another one for myself instead of wearing hers out.

I love our wood stove. It has drying racks on the sides for drying those wet mittens and hats. We used them all the time when the kids were small and even when they were big too. Yesterday we had a fire going and I just pulled the racks out and put my rolls to rise on those. Nice warm spot.
Just as I was taking the last batch out of the oven I could hear Lauren upstairs yell, "That smells good". So of course everyone had to have a taste. What it is about fresh bread just out of the oven?
I thought I would share some cool links I found for you knitters out there.
*This one is over at The Purl Bee. A pair of baby moccasins to knit.
*This one is a really neat link. You knit everyday in the month of December, starting on December 1st and by Christmas Eve you will have something to wear.
Yesterday was quite a busy day for me, and today I have to take my dad to get a Cataract fixed in one of his eyes. So, dinner is going in the Crock Pot and I have 2 batches of rolls in the bread machines already. Today appears to be hopping already.
You all have an awesome Tuesday.
