I have been in such a baking mood lately. Not good for the waistline but fun. Someone gave me some Amish Friendship bread starter so I have been adding things and stirring it for the last ten days. You have to check things off as you go along, at least I do.
Today was the final day to bake off the two tempting loaves. You can add any number of different things and this time I added raisins as the Hubs likes them in bread.
Also made some pumpkin muffins, got the recipe out of my new cookbook and they are YUMMY! Very moist and soft inside, melt in your mouth!
As I was working around in the kitchen I noticed some goings on out on the deck. I had to grab my camera and get some pictures of Munchkin and the squirrels who by nature are supposed to be mortal enemies. Guess not.
Oh my, she is surrounded by squirrels, I counted six!!
Also just beyond the fence were the two yearling deer peeking though the fence. I love wildlife!
Made a frantic trip to the lake this afternoon. The propane company called and said when the driver stopped to fill the tank it was empty. And as there was no one there he could fill the tank but he had to shut it off. I guess it's a law. Go figure. So before the tank could be turned back on I had to go down and check inside and make sure everything was okay. As most of you know we lost our whole cottage last winter due to frozen and broken water pipes that poured water through the place totally destroying it. This was going through my mind all the way down. I really didn't want to face that issue again.
Thankfully things were fine inside and the heat came on immediately after turning the tank back on. I had them change our deliveries to every three weeks instead of every four. I think that brutally cold weather that we had a few weeks ago must have blown through propane much quicker then normal. The heat is kept on 60* and was only down to 54* so it couldn't have been off long. I came home a happy woman!! :o)
