I really should've taken a video of the extreme winds we had again today, which also brought beautiful blue skies and sunshine.
The next best thing to demonstrate the power of the wind? A (slightly) willing model out on the lawn this afternoon.
|No photography studio fan on this model's blowing ears - it's the real deal!|
Our church is providing food for the Exit Tour team this week, and I signed up for breakfast tomorrow.
For 28 people!
So it was an all afternoon affair of mixing, baking and cleaning.
Sixty muffins and four dozen cookies later, they're ready to go for tomorrow morning.
The muffins are gluten free apple-carrot (so I could eat them too!) while the cookies are orange cranberry (not GF). Recipes HERE and HERE.
One of these days I'm going to have to figure out how to make these cookies gluten free because they are something special!
In the midst of my baking afternoon, I had a visitor. A very kind "grandpa-like" chimney inspector!
I couldn't resist a quick photo on my borrowed phone (I get my own back tomorrow after three weeks in repair!) just to remember this enjoyable old man.
In the kitchen from 1:30-7:00, I watched the day go by as I baked...full sunshine and wind, then shadows of late afternoon, which of course turned into darkness (and even stronger wind) by 4:45.
I forgot how early it gets dark here in November!

And one last occurrence of the day. Something I've never had happen in eighteen years of using beautiful Polish pottery.
After cleaning up the last of the baking mess, finally ready to sit down and relax for a few moments, I heated water for tea and then put it into my cup as I have literally done a thousand times.
In a nano second, my mug cracked and water began pouring out the bottom.
Goodbye beautiful mug.
Guess it's time to buy some more pottery?!
