Rainy Day and Giveaway Winner

We are finally getting some much needed rain here. I love to wake up to the sound when I know I don't have to go anywhere. The house remains dark on these dreary days so to make it more cozy I go around and plug in all my little lamps.


I am going to bake our bread this week.  I am challenging myself to spend as little as possible on groceries for this week. A few minutes of extra effort making things from scratch can really help keep  me out of the store. When my daughter was eating pb&j on a hot dog bun this morning I figured it was time to make some good bread.


So the dogs and cats and my two youngest and I will stay in and dry and enjoy a fresh slice of bread with butter and jam later. Oh that is really one of life's pleasures.


Okay onto the winner of my giveaway. I used random generator and the winner was #28, Vicky from Mess for Less.  Congrats Vicky and thanks to everyone who played along with me.
