RM, can't wait to see the longies!
HBM, Naomi used to get night terrors. They were more terrifying for us than her, because she never remembered them. They happened during times of stress and the year she turned 7 they went away. She was a really anxious kid until the last couple years. We were always reasured that she was okay when we asked about them. Sophia, who share a bed with her, would just wake up and watch with us.
I know it's hard!!
Ugh, plady, how long is that lady staying?!?
Moonshine, is your bread a yeasted bread? No-knead? That sounds great! Oh! Just saw your link. I've been making bread in my vita-mix, grinding the whole red wheat kernals and then mixing it all together. Then it gets scooped out into the loaf pan to rise. It doesn't rise well. Before I started grinding the wheat, I would let it rise once in the mixer and then dump it out to knead it before letting it rise a second time in the pan. But, the consistency with the freshly ground wheat is too wet. I really love the texture, but it's a super flat loaf. I'd love to know more about what you are doing. I love baking bread and have never gotten the hang of it...never have produced the perfect loaf.
Shanti, I want a KitchenAid so badly!! I'd be baking bread every day if I had one!
Megs, I'd love to try your bread recipe!
kate~mom, well done on the great indoor run!
Jay, I am really like Hal Higdon's marathon schedule and noticed that he has one for half-marathons, too. www.halhigdon.com
I ran 4 miles today with my friends. These are great people involved with the theatre, too. And they are such characters! She's a doctor and he's a SAHD. I've told them over and over that I was only going to do 3 miles. I warned them several times that I am slow. They kept forgetting and wanted to run further. I offered to turn around at my half way point and let them go, but they sweetly insisted on staying with me. The funny thing about them is that they are both so oblivious to distance and are in such great shape that it doesn't matter (she's the ironman and Boston marathoner) and it was like every time I said where I needed to turn around it was new information. They're hilariously absent-minded. What a pair! Tomorrow morning I will be doing my 6 miles with him. He said he'd push Oliver in the stroller and we'd do a bunch of hills by his house. Ugh! I know it will be good for me, but I'm dreading it. And, knowing him, we'll probably end up going 7 or more miles! I plan to set a time deadline, too, so I can make it to the school in time to do spelling whether we go 6 miles or not.
