Spring Clean

June 8, 2009 at 11:22 am 3 comments

It has finally decided to rain after an early spring heat wave and I’m thrilled because my very weak well is getting a vacation. 

The problem is my house is a disaster and I have been happily avoiding indoor responsibilities.  Instead I’ve busied myself and my family with a slew of outdoor projects which have now come to a screeching halt.  Sigh, guess I’ve got to get back to reality!shoes

Here is a fun project you can do if you are constantly finding shoes sprawled all over the floor of your entry or closet!  My hubby put one together for me with a rustic flair to match our home and I really like it. Of course, most days myshoes are the only ones on the rack but when it comes time to clean up, putting shoes away is now my 5 yr old sons favorite task!

I did NOT stick to the plan.

    Sure helps with that saying “a place for everything, and everything in its place”! 😉

      I’m a nut that way, I like having a place for everything. Just yesterday I looked at the heap of shoes at the door and thought “oh those kids” but I found comfort in knowing that in no time flat they could all be neatly ordered. At least they CAN look organized! 🙂

    Nice idea, maybe the hubby will do one for me. Currently we are working on an addition to increase the kitchen *(YAY!!) and give us a real entryway. Right now, we have a huge box and all the shoes/boots go in the box. Not very tidy.

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
