For my last few days of freedom before beginning work, this weekend has been pretty incredible. I still feel like I should find something really fun to do with the rest of today. Maybe I’ll get my spin on. I am really looking forward to starting work tomorrow!!
Yesterday’s spinning class was fantastic! ..very fun and informative. I learned all sorts of things, like how to use a bottom whorl drop spindle (useful), tons of information about spinning wheels/spinning/wool (interesting), and the spinning wheel I fell in love with is way out of my price range (just sad). Time to start saving! :oD
I also had a bit of a feast yesterday to celebrate my impending employment. It took two days of cooking to finish everything (bread, brisket, cheesecake, salad..), but it was well worth it.
I finally managed to branch out and make some different bread..pumpernickel! The recipe comes from my super old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. Very potentially my best bread ever, and Dave helped a lot while I was away at spinning class.
I also made some yummy cheesecake!! Also a pain to make. Also well worth it. :)
The recipe for this one comes from my new Food Network cookbook! I won it for free by playing games on this site, if you’re interested!
