|White Chocolate and Craisin Bark|
Jeff headed over there today to see if he could help them. He and Jaysn have heat tape that works on a thermostat wrapped around the pipes now and bought lots of insulation to put around the skirting of the house since there was none. Hopefully their pipes will thaw out now...if not, we will be hosting Christmas dinner here this year and the kids may bring their dishes out to wash here sometime this week also. Jeff just called and is on his way home so that he can get some sleep before he has to go into work tonight. I may join him and take a nap myself.
I've been busy this morning making 2 loaves of my whole wheat and oatmeal bread and 6 batches of candy. I made 2 batches of White Chocolate and Craisin Bark, 2 batches of White Chocolate Peppermint Bark and 2 batches of Milk Chocolate Peppermint Bark. These are to be gifts for family and friends. I still need to make Cranberry Orange Bread and some different types of candy, but that is going to have to wait because I am worn out. The most ambitious I have been since the candy making session was heating up some soup I pulled out of the freezer and getting some homemade bread crumbs drying in the oven.
I still have this cold, but I am doing much better than I was a few days ago. I think I may be on the mend. I certainly hope so...I don't have time for this!
