Magic Sneakers

After a weekend of non-stop bakes, I had a tough time getting into my usual clean up and write new bakes, routine.  Instead of hitting the ground running, I was sore and snuggled on the couch with the puppies.

They are very good snuggle buddies.  They have no problems blowing off chores and writing.  Noppers.  Born snugglers.

Anyway, here I am late afternoon only now getting going.   So for an extra bit of help, I put my my sneakers, or as Tim calls them, Magic Sneakers.  I dunno why, but for some reason these little buggers really get me going.

So it's a quick pasta bake and leftover homemade calzones for supper and vanilla pizzelles for dessert.  Then game night for Tim and for me, I'm gonna go full on couch potato, in my clean jams with a cup of warm ginger, cinnamon and honey.

And tomorrow, I'll show you my first ever 8 plaited loaf.  Which was one of the bakes I did this past weekend, along with a kick ass apple dessert, vanilla pizzelles, calzones and just before the weekend, homemade bow-tie pasta.

So much flippin' feckin' fartin' fun.

  3. Blowing off chores? A very good dog instinct that we should heed.

    2. Hey Elsie - Those were back from when Yahoo IM had little avatars to play with. I dressed my girl up and then took pictures with my camera.

      They had all kinds of holidays and neat things but I thought they got rid of those now. Which bums me out.

      Thanks for asking.

    3. Huh. I must have missed that on IM. Then again, I was never really that active on it. Too bad they are gone now.

    4. I use Yahoo IM all the time, it's my favorite for chatting with girlfriends. And it was fun to have a little dress up, as well.

    1. It's really the simple things, like blowing off chores and writing bakes, just for a little rest time.

      Read your post today. So sorry things are worse.

  9. Magic sneakers! I should wear mine indoors and see what happens. Sneakers are great and I miss mine in the winter.

    1. Yeah, I've been out and about and in snow boots all day today. Not as fun as sneakers.
