books, books, books.....
As soon as I received my christmas gift in the mail from my Mother in law I knew what I wanted to use some of it for....(thanks Mom!) So I immediately got on the computer. I spent quite a long time going through all the great books that are out there, deciding which books I wanted. The next thing I knew this delightful stack of books arrived at my doorstep. I can't wait to start diving in!!
I got quite the mix of books: A bread book because learning to make bread is something I have been wanting to do for a while now and just haven't fully made the plunge yet. I've been seeing lots of great recommendations out there for this book: The Tassajara bread book, by Edward Espe Brown. Another book out in blog land that I have had my eye on is A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenburg. She has this blog here. Which I love. There is a recipe on their for peppermint bark that is just begging to be made. Gotta see if I can rummage up some peppermint candies. I think we'll make these later in the winter when we need a little pick me up from cold, dark and dreary days ahead! Lets see what else..... Oooh I also got a sewing book, because well, sewing more is part of my New Years thing this year. So I got the new book by Meg McElwee called Sew Liberated. She also has a blog. There's a lot of great projects in there that I can't wait to try out...I'm going to be one busy lady! The other books were: Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots by Sharon Lovejoy it's children's gardening book. Living Simply with Children by Marie Sherlock, and You are your child's first teacher by Rahima Baldwin Dancy.
I am so so happy! I can't wait to start reading and sewing and cooking and baking yummy bread!
