Taking a break from carpet rolling.
Our house is all wood floors and we roll up the large area rugs and put them into storage for the summer.

Took a trip to the awesome Spice House for some of their amazing pomegranate molasses (I use it in my baking). I left with molasses, smoky salt and this little gem.....

The bottle labeled 'Chai' the tea is mine ;)
Two teabags at once... Tea is a weakness of mine=)
Can't wait to try this!

Back to the rugs I go.

I'm SO happy to finally have Flora Thompson's autobiographical novels..
Lark Rise (1939)
Over to Candleford (1941)
Candleford Green (1943)

 in e-book form! Meaning much easier book transportation system. AKA- always with me =)

I took this charming description from my local PBS website. They show the BBC adaptation every Thursday night...

"Flora Thompson's charming love letter to a vanished corner of rural England is brought to life in this warm-hearted adaptation.

Set in the Oxfordshire countryside in the 1880's, Lark Rise to Candleford depicts the last bright flickering of a now-vanished way of life, as Victorian England reaches into the 20th Century."

Books and a new bread machine, life is good!

I would love to hear if anyone else has or is enjoying this delightful series!

I guess my first post should include why I'm here....

Another homemaking skill, mastering the bread machine. =)
Long term goal - never buy bread from the store again!

My lovely husband gave me this beautiful bit of technology. It has been a blessing to our house. 3 weeks in and bread has been taken off our grocery list! 

 Still learning ever so much but it can only get better =)

Coming soon- Bread Machine recipes and easy to follow tutorials.

All questions, suggestions and advice welcome! =)
