I managed a whole 2.5 rows of knitting at our library's monthly sit and stitch. Evelyn had a good time. She likes to do the occasional imaginary knitting with my needles, and she was pretty pleased when I gave her her own ball of yarn. She was even more pleased when one of the librarians gave her a snack bag of cookies and she ate them all.
Once she went down for a nap, I made banana nut bread. I always use the recipe from this recipe book I stole from Mom.
I had been to wanting banana nut bread for a couple of weeks, and then I wanted it even more after hearing the news that Jim Nabor had gotten married (after being with his partner for nearly 40 years!). I was excited for him to be happily married, but mostly I was just excited to find out he was still alive.
The recipe for Gomer's Banana Bread Pyle was actually submitted by Jim Nabor. Awesome.
I made the banana nut bread for my own partner because he was working his last day at Kierre's. On Friday, he worked from 6:00 A.M. until 3:00 PM at Kierre's, and then he went to his new job and worked there from 4:00 or 5:00 until 9:00 PM or so. He's a hardworking guy, and so very in demand. I was proud, and wanted to bake for him.
|Ha, I solar-flared my banana nut bread. Insufferable|
Evelyn and I got to eat the bread, too. Then we played outside for the second glorious time that day.
I was really happy Saturday. Cody's work at Kierre's would be done, the read-to-dogs program is at our library every Saturday now, the weather was nice enough for us to play outside, and we had dessert bread.
Good, good day.
