B is for Books, Biscotti, Bread, Biscuits and Building Blocks

05 Dec

This Sunday evening is different from most for me.  I’m usually plagued with a serious case of Sunday night blues but not tonight.

I decided that I needed to get a thing or two off my to do list this weekend.  The first on the list was to hem 2 pair of slacks and 2 skirts for my mother-in-law that she dropped off nearly two weeks ago.  I accomplished that yesterday afternoon.  Little did I know that my daughter would bring me two pair of slacks that she needed hemming as well home this weekend.  I finished them for her this afternoon after church.

This afternoon we took the snowmobiles out of the garage and the girls took grandson Jack for a snowmobile ride.  He loved his ride but  didn’t like getting bundled up like Ralphie from A Christmas Story and complained loudly.

After supper I decided it was still early enough to bake a couple of loaves of bread.  While I was waiting for the bread to rise I made a batch of biscotti.  In the middle of my baking my youngest daughter decided to make Buttermilk Biscuits. 

While we were busy baking Grandpa kept grandson Jack busy building with the blocks in the other room.  He has learned how to stack the blocks into a tower rather than just knocking down the towers you build.  Quite an accomplishment and he is generally pretty pleased with himself and applauded his successes.

We have had our fill of the bread, biscotti, and biscuits.   I’m finally settled into my recliner in a messy but quiet house with a cup of coffee and a good book to finish off a busy weekend.

    I agree with Sunshine–it sounds like you had a lovely, cozy weekend. I’m always impressed by people who know how to hem pants. Mine always end up with one leg longer than the other.

    Happy Monday!

    I don’t mind hemming slacks but having to do so much of it in one weekend was a bit too much. Unfortunately my eyes are not as good as they used to be. We did have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by. Jeanne

      Thanks for stopping by Todd. We love buttermilk biscuits at our home. We add a little garlic salt and shredded cheddar cheese to them and they get very close in taste to the Cheddar Bay Biscuits served at Red Lobster.
