Baby it's cold outside...

Holy Moly it's cold outside...

It's the end of the year, and I haven't done anything I planned on doing with my 2 weeks off.  I need to make a new syllabus, plan a new middle school cooking class, print out recipes, write recipes, continue my novel and cookbook, clean out under my bed, get rid of tons of unused things to donate...

Oy Vay...

I actually miss work!  This is too much pressure!!! ;)

I have been baking a TON of pretzel bread recently... my new obsession... and much to my kids happiness... they have been devouring it.

My Mom and I have been baking fiends the past few weeks... and catering a bunch too.  It's so much fun to cook and just 'be' with my Mama in the kitchen.  We have yet to find out if we "got" a gig catering an impromptu wedding on New Year's Eve... fingers crossed!  It would be fun to cater and enjoy a wedding and all the music that comes with it on NYE.
We also have a huge Football Banquet for our Football team to cook for on Jan. 5.  Holy Moly... I sure wish we had that thing in December... LOL... but... we have a ton of awesome people willing to do whatever it takes and help... so it will be so much fun to cook, laugh and fellowship with everyone in my classroom...

There have been a lot of Basketball tournaments lately... so we've been trying to get to a couple here and there...
I just enjoy being home so much and not 'needing'  to be somewhere... that we just don't get out that much right now... LOL...

There have been a bunch of Amazon.com packages coming in... that's been fun...getting gifts after the fact... it's a great time... Like a mini Christmas every day.

Just found out my new Ipod doesn't fit ANY of my older Ipod (less than a year ago) stuff... so all my junk had to be passed down to the kids for their Ipod Touch's, and I had to buy all new junk for mine... sooooo sucks!  But.. the new one has video and camera... so I'm set for any event now...in a much more compact form.  Those companies just keep tweaking things jusssst enough to get every single penny out of us... huh?

***to my irked reader (you know who you are)... notice how this blog post doesn't resemble anything that may/maynot be something that irks you... Well... there are about 599 other ones just like this... why don't you focus on your own life... and leave me alone... Thank you so much for reading me... but really... you should find time to do things in your life that fulfill you and make your life better... mine is just fine at the moment... thanks... I don't need or want your opinion on what I write, post, or have experienced in my life... you do you... I'll do me.


  1. Thank you so much for that yummy bread. I ate it all myself and didn't share. Isn't that so mean. If you ever make pizza dough I would love to get a lesson :) Thanks again for being such a good neighbor!

  2. Ohmygosh!! What did I miss? So sorry you had to make your blog private. Hugs!!

    Pretzel bread...nummy yummy!!!!!

  3. Thanks for the invite to your inner sanctum!

    Are you saying that another blogger actually took it upon herself to critique your blog uninvited?


  4. Can't believe you could irk anyone. I love ya and I'm glad I'm still in the inner circle

  5. I, too, am glad I'm in the inner circle. And I can't believe someone would call to complain about YOUR blog - maybe it's because you're always discussing all your friends and family in gory and personal detail. NOT. Sounds like aside from that one hiccup, you had a lovely Christmas. And pretzel bread??? Share a recipe???Yumm!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. My goodness, what I have missed not blogging for awhile (a long while). So glad that you are loving teaching. Knowing your personality from the blog I can't imagine your students not loving you. :)

    Sorry you had to go private because of one annoying reader....but thanks for including moi. I am planning on getting back into the swing of blogging again in the New Year.

    Happy New Year!!!
