Tidbits

There used to be a time when I had the kitchen to myself and I really enjoyed cooking and baking unhindered. But since we have children I discovered it is even more fun to work in the kitchen with eager young cooks wanting to help with everything.

Here is Sunbeam trying to mix the batter for Lemon Poppy Seed Bread. While we enjoy pumpkin or banana bread I think I have to say that Lemon Poppy Seed Bread is our favorite. I'll have to share the recipe the next time we make some.

We have quite a selection of good movies that we enjoy watching but the other winter when someone gave us a subscription to Netflix we really enjoyed the many options it provided and through it found even more that we hope to someday add to our home collection.

Last week we came to the conclusion that we really don't need it any longer since our busy schedule hardly allows time to sit down and watch movies so we decided to cancel our subscription. In order to cancel they wanted to know the reason why we are cancelling. Among the options to choose from they wanted to know if we will be only using bootleg DVDs from now on.

For some reason that really amused me. No we will certainly not be making or watching bootleg DVDs and I couldn't help but wonder if anyone would actually check that as a reason to cancel.

The manuscript for the first book in my series has been turned in. Now the waiting until it will be released begins.

LOL - You should've checked "other" and type in "We just plan to steal them from Blockbuster from now on." That is hilarious! Remember if you have a library nearby, you can get some good movies there when you get some time - maybe in the winter. Oh wait, you'll have another baby then - nevermind. Well, some year when things slow down... I've never done Netflix but I've heard it's pretty neat. Congrats on the book!! ♥

You must've been super busy behind the blog scenes to finish the first book already. That's really exciting. There are not so many books that I look forward to, but this one is an exception. Your story is interesting reading. Have a super day.

I'll certainly be looking forward to your books. I also want to thank you for sharing links on Mon. to the sermons you enjoyed so much. I just finished listening to Lessons of Life from the Eagle. Was passing the link on to a family member just 20 min. into the message. Thank you for sharing with all of us that so enjoy your blog. Blessings to you all.

Blessings,

I would be very interested to hear your "favorites" movie list. Would you be willing to share some of your favorite titles with us?

Baking with children is always fun; can't wait for that recipe! :)

LOL! Yes, that is an amuusing option; I wonder if anyone has ever checked that... I'm sure someone has at some point...

That's great! Good luck with getting it published! :)

Congratulations on finishing the first manuscript! I'm so looking forward to reading it.

Sunbeam is using an old fashioned hand cranking egg beater. I still have mine but haven't used it in ages.

I didn't even notice the egg beater. I remember using one when I was a child, but I don't have one now.

Knitwit said...

That's one thing I really dislike about my home - it has a VERY small kitchen, with no space for delightful scenes like this one with Sunbeam. It's really made it a challenge to teach my kids to cook!

Like Magnolia Tea said, you have been busy - to your manuscript out so quickly! I'm also looking forward to reading it.

I am so glad that your manuscript is in. What a huge undertaking that must have been.
Sunbeam looks cute mixing up the batter. I still use my turn the handle beater, too.

I'm looking forward to the recipe! We've backed on TV, too. Somehow I can't bring myself to click it on when I might find "Teen Moms" or "Desperate Wives." I'll stick to surfing the net and finding "A Joyful Chaos"

Sunbeam reminds me of my own children at that age. They can make kitchen duty fun and exciting, as you never know what they will do. I am so excited to hear about your book soon coming out. Never, have I tried Netflix, but that is odd to ask such a question. Makes you wonder about some folks.
