No Need

I've got no need for the rain, rain to go away! I spent the morning doing exactly what a drizzly day calls for - making bread from scratch.

Start to finish, picturing bread making:

The bowl that needs mixing, a.k.a the job that is an arm exercise in and of itself.

Kneaded dough a.k.a another exercise, arms and shoulders this time.

Risen dough.

Dough balls ready for the pans.

Second rise completed.

The end.

Actually, that's not the end. The end occurred once I'd devoured a warm, buttered and honeyed piece of fresh bread. All that exercise left me famished.

And now, that's all she wrote.

Ohhhh that looks so YUMMY!!! I want to reach in and just take a big hunk out and add lot's of butter and EAT it!! But what am I thinking " I'm suppose to be on a diet." But hey it's ok to look and pretend though right? Zero calories for that I bite I just took.
