A cooler, rainy day is always just right for children at home with the yuk. I've been feeling more healthy as the day progresses and as I made up the beds, decided to capture a little bit for corners of my home. The little lounger is RB, made for me by my Mom when I was just three. She is getting all sorts of love now from her new owner, my six year old. There's just nothing like a handmade, huggable doll. There's a close-up of her here.
Our new closet is looking fabulous! Paul is amazing at this. I've decided the next images I share will be the finished results. I don't mention this to be braggy, it's just been a long time coming for us. It's a process and this type of closet is really beyond any goals I may have ever had. It's the right thing for the house though. Interesting how I keep making that distinction, as though the house has needs of its own.
Also today, I'm embarking on my plan to bake my way through Bernard Clayton's New Complete Book of Breads. This book has been on my shelf for about 4 years as I decided I would bake my own bread when we moved into the "new house" (putting this nice convection oven to use). Well, we're two years into that move now and so ... enough procrastinating! The drop biscuit recipe in this months issue of Cook's looks really good too, and if I'm feeling motivated, this might be a part of our dinner.
This has all the makings of a very happy domestic day.
