31 Days To An Organized Home: Day 27 – A Day Inside

on October 27, 2012

Thanks for stopping by!  This is Day #27 of my “31 Days To An Organized Home” challenge.  If you missed it, you can catch up with Day #1 here!


Brrr!!   I feel like I can officially say “Happy Fall”!   Today was pretty chilly (at least for Central Florida) and also very overcast.  Day #2 of not being able to paint the card catalog so will have to try again tomorrow when it is supposed to be sunny and slightly warmer.  Since it will probably hit the 90s again soon, I am not too worried.  I mean, we are sometimes wearing shorts on Christmas Day around here.  🙂  But for today, it was a great day to be inside and so very nice to have real “Fall weather” for a change!  Yay!!

So today started with the Husband waking up on some sort of mission, since he sat up and immediately declared that he “must make baguettes”  (I think I pulled the covers tighter and hoped that would entail making coffee as well).

Maybe he had a bizarre dream that involved our travels to Paris or maybe he got inspired because all of the baking supplies have now been organized??  😉

Or maybe he is just crazy ( that might have also crossed my mind early this AM).

Whatever the case, the man loves to cook as much as I do and he also happens to make amazing bread and homemade pasta so who am I to complain?  Lucky me.  And top either of those with with my favorite food group – CHEESE – and there’s why we’re still happily married (cheese IS a food group, right??).  We’ll talk about bacon some other time…

I might have still been waking up and enjoying my coffee (as opposed to snapping the obligatory blog photos of the yeast bubbling and the dough rising…) but here are the loaves prepping to go into the oven… (and on the cover of the cookbook in the background, that’s The Husband when he was little on the bottom right). 🙂

And then *poof*.  Beautiful baguettes (you see how hard I worked on this right??).

Delicious loaves of yummy goodness right there.  Littlest agrees.  He could barely wait to get his hands on a slice when it came out of the oven.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone else start to say something and then it just fades out before the end of the sentence as you realize that what you are saying is not only falling on temporarily deaf ears, but it’s just a beat too late ?

IE:  “Dont touch that – it just came out of the oven and it’s rea… “.  Oh nevermind.    And if you burn your mouth “I told you so!”.  😉

And, since Littlest is dressed in his Halloween costume (and may not take it off before Halloween if he has his way), it must be “doctor’s orders”!  Let them eat BREAD!

All said and done it was a fantastic day – Halloween costumes were finished, had a great feast for lunch with the little guys, and lots of progress made in the final push on the garage.  Also a few more little touches added to the Master Bedroom – nothing major, will have to add a new picture.

Card catalog reveal tomorrow (fingers crossed that we can paint!!).

Happy, happy weekend!
