Relaxing Week Off

What a pleasant week!

I managed to do almost nothing! Except knit, watch recorded TV shows, work out a few times, overeat a bit... a good time.

Yes, I did SOME cleaning, and got the leak in the garage roof fixed. It leaked inside after last Friday night's rainstorm, near the spout that comes off the roof (they call it a canally). They were old and inexpertly sealed and leaked inside the roof into the inside. Not the first thing in this house we've had to fix because someone in the past took the easy/cheap way to fix something. Grrr.

Anyway, the kitties have enjoyed being out on the porch a lot, and I've tried not to feel lazy, but being lazy is what vacations should be sometimes.

Today I bought a bread machine. I've been thinking about it for awhile, because of my gluten problems and the fact that commercial gluten-free bread is very "white" and fiberless, etc. Not healthy. I'm hoping to make some more fiberful and healthy bread myself. I've found some recipes and will start experimenting tomorrow! Stay tuned.


  1. Wow - it's a good thing you got the roof fixed before today's storm! Did you get rain at your house?
    Enjoy your vacation! (and take this opportunity to keep off your foot for a bit).

  2. Yes, we did get rain. The new scuppers seem to be doing the job!

    Yes, I did spend a lot of time with the foot on a chair, on the couch, watching TV. Ahhh. I can do that for a week....
