How are you all on this lovely Monday? Things couldn’t be better at the Auntie B’s Wax World Headquarters. I’ve been away from the day job since Thursday afternoon and this long weekend has been spent gloriously. So many things accomplished! So much well-deserved rest! Tomorrow I return to the day job, but I’m not going to think about that right now.
An interesting thing about this weekend ~ I didn’t turn on the computer for two whole days! I know, for some of you that may seem like nothing. Others may wonder, how did she do it? For one thing I’ve noticed my right (mousing) wrist is a little painful. I didn’t avoid the computer for that reason, but I’m sure my delicate wrist appreciates the vacation it got. For another thing, I found plenty of other things to do. That’s right, there is a life outside of Facebook and Monkey Gems.
I may be sharing posts about some of the things I’ve been up to. Like what I found when going through three boxes of stuff I nabbed from Husby’s parents’ house when we cleaned it out for sale. Or like what I’ve been thinking about while laying about in bed in the mornings, not having to get up at the crack of dawn (earlier, actually) to go to the day job.
One thing I’ll share with you today is that it’s -6 degrees here at the headquarters in Minnesota. I’m happy to be cozy in my house without any reason to go out into the blistering cold weather. But I’m also happy it’s cold out, because that’s what winter in Minnesota is supposed to be. On icy cold days like this how can one resist baking something sweet and delicious? I know I can’t. So I whipped up a couple of loaves of pear bread. They’re cooling on the racks as I write this, and I can hardly wait to dive in and taste some. The house smells of cinnamon and sugar and juicy, ripe pears.
If you have an itch to make some of this wonderful pear bread, you can find the recipe I used here.
I hope you’re savoring all the winter season offers, even if it’s something as simple as a piece of warm pear bread you’ve made yourself.
Off I go to make the best of the rest of my day, for tomorrow I’m back to the grind. Stay warm!
