I hope this finds you excited for the week ahead, and feeling accomplished after the weekend behind. I had a lofty weekend plan. It included some things we needed to get done, along with some relaxation. Let's see how it went:
* House of Cards- I tried, House of Cards, I really did. However, this season can't hold my attention. I fell fast asleep during the first episode. That's not a great sign. Downton Abbey, on the other hand, never disappoints. What an outstanding season finale. I heart you, Mr. Carson!
*Dress Making- Done! My niece loves the movie Book of Life, so here is her Maria dress. What a fun project! I was thankful for an excuse to dust off my sewing machine.
*Bread Baking- Done, sliced and frozen for the week. This is still a science that I am working to perfect. This loaf was the first to rise so high in the oven that the foil popped off. It looked beautiful when I took it from the oven. When I transferred it to the cooling rack, it acted as a deflated balloon. Oops! The thing went from standing a good 4 inches high, to a sad 2 inches low. So, yes, it's done, sliced and frozen, yet somewhat flawed and weird looking. Will try again next week.
*Park Playing- The weather did not cooperate for family fun at the park on Saturday, so we'll head there today.
*The Beach- Nope. Sad. Boo Hoo. Frowny Face.
I rate this weekend pretty high as weekends go. I enjoyed my crafting and kitchen time fully, and spent some rainy day family time at home. I hope yours was as fun!
