A mish-mash of a day

We had to stay home today - our last day of vacation. Bell was sending a techie to see why one of our satellite receivers wasn't working. You know if you've ever waited for a service call, they could come at any time - so, you don't make other plans.

My in-house plan included sewing, but it hasn't happened quite yet.
It also included baking. Yesterday saw a batch of oatmeal raisin cookies done up and today I tried a loaf of multi grain bread.

Last year I switched to multi grain and have been looking to find a recipe to make it myself. This week's visit to Bulk Barn netted me some 12 grain flour and a recipe. The result is below...

DB likes it too :-)

Sometime Friday, I was having a devil of a time getting the laptop to myself. See...

...and just in case you think she's not REALLY laying right on the computer, look again...

Little dogs, it really is all about them.


  1. That bread looks terrific. I have an old farmers' wives cookbook; I'll see if they have any interesting multi grain recipes for you.

  2. Oh! For a slice of that delicious looking bread!! Your dog looks like a Sweetie!
    Thank you Claire for finding my blog after last night's fiasco. Hope others do as well.


Thanks for talking to me - I love comments !
