Finally took a muscles relaxer and my back felt better so that help shift my mood. Did not meditate yet today, that might be a sweet way to fall asleep later on.
I've been baking a ton of bread in the new bread machine. I was once a purist and made all my breads by hand, but now tis a bit painful to do the kneading bit. I gotta say that I am hung up on the Whole Wheat Flax Seed Bread, so light and love the crunch of the seeds. Made two pies today, an apple and a cranberry/blueberry. Both turned out quite nicely. I'll be taking some over to youngest daughter's home as she has requested some, can't wait till tomorrow perhaps. But, it does stroke my ego a bit to turn out a good pie. I was once nicknamed "Lois the Pie Queen."
Had a couple of days that were painful after striding about the Botanical Gardens Sunday last, and still creaky in the joints today. The weather has cooled considerably and that does tend to stir up .. my mother's term "Old Arthur."
I continue to work on my sockyarn scrap aghfan, it's coming along nicely. The Miss Marple socks are looking good, almost ready for the toe, but haven't knitted much today as I was making pies.
We enjoyed a lovely skillet of Scotch Blue Kale, Dinosaur Kale, and Rainbow Swiss Chard. I have enough harvested for one more meal, and then we will see if it lives or dies as it is outside.
The trees are turning, the sugar maple next to the house has already dropped her leaves and her sister is just barely turning. Still many trees that are green. Haven't taken many pics but I think I have one of the sugar maple.. why is LJ posting all my pics sideways, is there a certain size it shoud be? I don't know but I'm leaving it there for now even though I find it irritating, perhaps it's just a sign to let go of perfectionism? God works in mysterious ways ... always
