The rain returned yesterday, not a heavy downpour but steady enough to make it an indoor kind of day. That wasn't a bad thing, I had all the planting finished so a good drink of water would be good for those plants. I'm purchasing the plants and flowers as I have the extra money to spend.
Wednesday morning was spent baking Tulip Time brownies (aka: Texas Sheet Cake), blond brownies, and chocolate brownies with raspberry truffle icing. The first two are on my recipe blog, I'll add the third soon. Hubby will take them to the bookstore today. They have mentioned how much they miss me but they really miss my baked goods I usually bring. :)
It has been strange not working the last week of the semester. That is the time I enjoyed the most, getting to work in the textbook department. However, I'm on a waiting list for state provided insurance (I was accepted but put on a waiting list as they are out of money) and any part-time work would put me over the minimum.
I have been enjoying watching the Franklin Springs films each Wednesday night on the NRB Channel. They've been showing the West Ladies films again. Last week's episode was the bread making film and last night they showed how to make candles. I just love these films, they inspire me as well as instruct. Someday I want to purchase the series so I can watch them over and over, which is what helps me learn best.
Today I am assembling the books and films list from all the recommendations on the I Heart Hobbit Houses post. I'm still getting some additions and you can make a recommendation by adding to the comments HERE or e-mailing me today (Thursday). I think you'll enjoy the list very much.
