Random Thoughts April 2011

** I’m on Facebook!!  Please click the “Like” button and make my day.  I’ll also make sure new posts are put up there.  I can’t link to it properly here on my blog because I have Application Platforms off

**Working with bread yeast is cool.  I made hot cross buns and pizza dough bread on Good Friday and my favourite part was “waking up” the dried yeast with the hot sugar water and watching it “blurp.” Yeah, sometimes I’m just a big kid.

The hot cross buns we made on Good Friday.

**One letter arrived in the post this morning!! Yay!! And I’ve emailed to find out where the other one went.

**Journal proofs were delivered to my house this morning. The awesomeness makes me smile. (Final sign off before printing!!)

**Things that the publisher was trying to explain to me make much more sense to me now, while I look at the proofs.  It’s that light-bulb moment. “OH! NOW I get it!!”  I did mention that I’m a visual learner, right?

**My children are no longer wooly-headed and this pleases me. My turn at the hairdressers next week!

**The Penguins of Madagascar TV show is amusing and I like watching it.

**I have an Open Home on Sunday and I have done NOTHING for it yet. Yikes!

**I am SO ready for Term 1 School break to be over.  Bring on Monday so I can send the children back to school!!

**I almost got trapped in a suburb 20kms from here because it’s rained so much in the last few days that a river was creeping over a bridge. Thankfully we left before it fully engulfed the bridge.

**I can see sunshine and it makes my soul happy. I moved here to get away from the constant Pacific Northwest rain in the Vancouver Rainforest. So when it’s cloudy here for more than a couple of days, my soul feels a bit “squashed”.

    How exciting, you sound so industrious! It is raining here today (Maine, US) and I LOVE it!! There is nothing better than a warm rain to help Spring along. And OMG, those buns are looking TOO good, hungry…must snack soon!

    Enjoy your wonderful sunny days!!!!!

  2. Jenn @ You know...that Blog? says :

    Yet more proof that we think alike, and were separated at birth in some lifetime in the past! Yay that one letter arrived – the other will be right behind it I’m sure 🙂

    I like the term “Woolly headed” I may use that! I resemble that at the moment, actually 😉

  3. Amber says :

    Ooo I want a bun! (Teehee.)

    My husband also likes that penguin show.

    Facebook liked!!
    Hot cross buns make me hungry.
    I’m still in the dark… I know this must be about a publication but I’m still waiting…
    Glad the children got their hair cut.
    Skipper is a fabulous leader of Penguins and
    Too bad about your rain but as yours starts – mine ends (I hope) Hooray! Autumn can be refreshing but who am I kidding? I love summer!! It’s my turn… 😉

      Thank you for that invitation and unfortunately I cannot add my link because I do not have Facebook Platform Applications turned on, I cannot join. 🙂 But I do appreciate the invite! 🙂

  7. Dianna Graveman says :

    I “like” you on Facebook! (Actually, I like you here, too.)

    But now you’ve got me pondering again. I usually link my blog posts there, but sometimes I get asked why I don’t have a page for the books and stuff (which could also be the blog page, I guess). Just trying to figure out how much social media is too much, you know?

    Hope you’re having a great day!

    • Broot says :

      Well, I think that since some people only use 1 form of social media (Facebook OR Twitter OR other, ya know) it doesn’t hurt to have them in multiple places. 🙂

      Thanks for “like”ing me … both ways! 🙂 It’s mutual.
