30 days of thanks--day 8-10
Thursday (day 8)--I'm thankful for my sourdough!! I didn't know 2 weeks ago that my next skill to learn was sourdough breadmaking. Then I got a coupon for a free starter from a specialized company. The more I thought about it, the more excited I got. I finally picked out my favorite one (they had 16 options!) and ordered it. I haven't made my first loaf yet, but I it is now happily bubbling away on the counter and I anticipate a fresh loaf in the next day or two (I even bought cream to turn into butter, because if I'm going to have my very own sourdough bread, it seems like it OUGHT to have homemade butter melting on top).
Friday (day 9)--I'm thankful for my family. We spent the evening with my folks--had dinner and played some games. We then watched a Sylvester Stallone comedy that had us all in stitches (yes, apparently before he was Rocky he was a comedy actor--learn something new every day). It's so wonderful to have family that we are close to in more than just geography.
Saturday (day 10)--I'm thankful for a shower gone well. My SIL Amanda is due in three weeks, and I threw a small family shower for her this afternoon. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun. We made all sorts of awesome onsies for the newest little addition.
