An Exciting Week

It is "birthday week" in our house and a milestone birthday at that!

After two years with a poorly performing breadmaker, my wonderful husband gifted me with a new one! We picked it up yesterday and I am so eager to try it out. The accompanying recipe book has a recipe for peanut butter chocolate rolls, and you know that's going to be the first one I try!

He also picked out Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook: The Essential Guide to Caring for Everything in Your Home for me. I am thrilled because I spent a few weeks in the spring comparing several books of that nature, but I had no idea when I'd be able to actually purchase one. I was joking that now we'll find out just how poorly I've been keeping the house, but I'm actually a little scared!

Earlier this spring I read on a blog about the best way to keep dust mites at bay, and that sent me into a flurry (and totally revolutionized my approach to bedmaking and linen care). I can only imagine what else Martha has in store for me!


  1. Oooh, You got the bread machine! You'll have to let me know how the chocolate peanut butter rolls are!

    I've wanted Martha's new book for awhile now too... I love her Living magazine, website, and show.

    Enjoy your treats!

  2. Happy Birthday!

    I received the Martha book as a gift earlier this year and have barely made it through the first few sections as there is just so much information to be learned. :o) Enjoy your new goodies!
