Winter Days

Snow has come our way. Not much, but enough to call it winter. I saw in the paper that the groundhog saw his shadow so that means six more weeks of winter. My kids didn't buy it. They can't trust our local weatherman and they most assuredly aren't going to put their hope in a groundhog! I am ready to move on to spring. I haven't minded winter this year, but remember I am a fair weather farmer. I like to do things outside when the temperatures are pleasant. Can you blame me? So what do I do when the winter weather hits? I go to the kitchen and start baking. That way I can stay warm while I produce scrumptious baked goods for all the people here at our home. It's a win win situation if you don't count the extra pounds that ends up on my waist!!

grace and peace,

hmm...I need some little bodies in my home to help eat all that I love to bake, instead of just two! I understand having to watch those winter pounds! I try to give away half of every dessert or batch of cookies I make in this stage of our marriage!

Andrea Cherie,
This is one of the benefits of having a lot of mouths to feed. I have seen people hiding the goodies just so they know that there will be a morsel left for later!! Before our children were older, I too would share a lot of my baked goods with neighbors. That is a sure fire way of having a friendly neighbor relationship!
grace and peace,
julie
