Another day is ending. I have painted signs and sent photos to customers, this is one I was stuck on and got some direction from the customer.
Vacuum and mopped my entire house (love my Shark steam mop!) That was my workout today.
I photographed my scarf for the website, I am not sure if I want to add the flower or leave it off.
I rather like the flower, I can offer it on the scarf but make it removable. Still debating that one…
I made the starter for my Cheddar Crusty loaves first thing so it would be ready by dinner time. They turned out even better than I had hoped. I am enjoying my new ($4 thrift store) bread machine. I wore out my last one.
The recipe is linked below, I shaped the bread incorrectly, the recipe was on the back of the King Arthur bread flour sack (I use King Arthur exclusively, it is pricier but the flavor is well worth the added expense) so I did not see photos until I went to their site.
Recipe for this bread, I used cheddar and no pizza flavoring.
I have been trying to work on projects for me or I should say for our house, I have to fit it in around all the sign orders.
My kitchen cabinets are in desperate need of repainting. They are not stained, the original paint has just worn completely off in high usage areas like around the knobs.
Yes, they do look this bad. Several of the cabinet doors that are used frequently look like this. Thankfully I have the low odor no VOCs paint so I can paint some in place and not have to contend with the nasty paint fumes. I have one door started, one I cannot really remove easily, it is the trash drawer door. The rest I can remove and take to the studio to paint. I will finish them off with a couple coats of varathane for greater longevity.
But to be honest these have not been painted for 5 years and we do use the kitchen heavily so I have to say this first paint job held up well. Especially in light of all the scrubbing they have received.
We also made a trip to the chiropractor, I was in desperate need of an adjustment, I have been combating a nasty headache for 3 weeks and finally took care of the cause. On our way we stopped to get feed for my chickens so a dual purpose trip. So a full day for me.
At least it was sunny today. My sweet husband chipped all the ice from the back steps so now I can jog up and down them all day from the studio and not worry about landing on my patootie. The temps were just not warming enough to do the job at all.
Goodnight to all…
