This and That

Looking out back from a kitchen window inside, I noticed how the chicken coop was nearly invisible due to the deep snow.  There is a shoveled path in front of it to get to them that you can't see.


As I was noticing the chicken coop, a child flew down and then another, landing softly in the snow. 
They were jumping down from the porch roof.



After the two loaves of freshly baked bread were gone by 1:00 in the afternoon yesterday, I have come to accept that three loaves each day is necessary for our growing family.



I crocheted this little elephant using Peace Fleece Wool/Mohair yarn from a pattern I found here.
It will be for Abraham's Easter basket.


Warm wishes,
Tonya

  1. Oh that snow! I have had to look at that for two months and I have had quite enough thank you:-) We are getting a thaw and it is a treat to know I do still have a lawn! The elephant is adorable. Stay warm and thanks for your note about my Dad:-)

  3. Your bread looks so good. I am having to give uo carbs, but I still must bake for my family which makes it very hard. The elephant you crocheted is adorable.
    Warmly,

  8. I used to be able to bake three loaves, put two in the freezer, and they would last the week. Now we go through almost a whole loaf in one day. I guess that's nothing compared to your family!
    Are you still doing your sourdough? I really want to get started on that!

  9. Oh look at all that gorgeous white snow you have!! We've only had a few winters in my entire life where it has been incredibly deep. Your children must have so much fun :) Fresh bread has a strange ability to disappear as quickly as it comes out of the oven doesn't it :)

  10. while every time I'm at your blog I long to be back in Vermont, I'm happy to say that a lot of our snow here in Maine has melted and I am ready for spring. Lovely post.

  11. Isn't it amazing how much little people can eat?! Our food bill just keeps increasing and we 'only' have two!

  12. WOW 3 loaves a day! So that is what I have to look forward to if we have as many children?! We have 3+ children and they are little, so we are roughly at a few loaves PER WEEK! Good for you!

  13. It's incredible how quickly the food disappears. I love the elephant. My husband's brother used to jump off his roof but there wasn't snow when he did it. Ouch.
    I am actually wishing for some more snow.

  14. Yes, one loaf of bread really doesn't last long in our house either.
