Today I managed to bake bread without setting anything on fire!
Thanks for all the concerned comments. All is well. My kitchen is possibly a shade grayer than it used to be, & I still smell an odd odor (though Warren says it smells fine…of course that was about the time the bread came out of the oven).
While the bread was rising, I sat by the fire (in the wood stove this time), & did a little hand work on the next crazy quilt. It’s some of the same fabrics as the last one I did that was donated. This one is for us. No time limits, no deadlines, just relaxing hand work when I can.
I even listened to a little Christmas music on TV today. Trying to get into the mood.
