Quick Takes Friday



--- 1 ---



I'm trying Jen's Quick Takes template. Maybe it will help me join in a little more often! I think I might actually try to keep a few of these for the other regular link-ups I have participated in. I'm no web wizard, but I think I have tampered with enough HTML to make something work. For {phfr}, for example.

Give it up for my kids at this year's fair!






They are already planning for next year.

Inspired by our successes at the fair, the cold weather, and the desire to return to a more self-sufficient lifestyle, we are BAKING. Caleb and I made a rosemary bread in the bread machine yesterday, and we tried a honey wheat sandwich loaf that I will have to tweak, but hey--we like it enough to finish the loaf. I made my first pie of the season, an apple pie which Jason loved but was way too soupy. I think I used too much liquids AND sliced the apples too thin. Anybody out there have any other ideas about what can make a pie filling runny? Care to way in and help a housewife out?

I never posted about my first essay into making pie, did I? It's been sitting in my drafts for years. Seriously.

I'll post it later today. Consider it Quick Take #4.

Which brings the total number of promised posts that I have yet to make good on up to eight, I think. I have 50 drafts in my dashboard, not including the rosary fine art posts (those are scheduled). That's not crazy, is it?

I got this link and this link at Pinterest. (Are you there? Look me up!) I haven't really explored them yet--just skimmed them-- but they look great. I've been looking for a way to do a nature table that's compatible with all of the little ones we have around, and the kids are having a ball finding new treasures in the glorious, newly nippy weather we're having. These links look ridiculously fun.

What I'm living by today and for days to come:

To rectify. A little each day.--This must be your constant concern if you really want to become a saint.

The Way
