this was waiting for me on thursday morning.
(edit: to clarify, the stand mixer was not a birthday gift from jesse. it was a wedding shower gift from my late grandpa nearly 10 years ago.)
i have been wanting this book and even more so, i have been really really wanting to start baking bread.
tomorrow i will try out the rye bread recipe. (isn't that note sweet?)
last night, he put the pride and prejudice dvd in for a friday movie night snuggle session. he even asked if we could read the book together sometime soon. i know, right?
then this morning, he made me breakfast in bread - eggs, toast, juice, and chai!
and then he gave me the day to spend however i chose. (but i did need to stay close by for frequent feedings since enzo is still sick.) i have been wanting to make spring pillow cases for the couch and today i finally had enough time to work on them without any littles afoot. i had the whole upstairs to myself!
tomorrow he and the kiddos are making dinner.
this birthday weekend is oh so nice.
