Baking bread...

...working on peevish Mr. Rumpel... his "trunk hose" will be that colour...and are pretty much done except for some "panes" that I want to try to add...we'll see how that goes.  The coat...not that fabric after all.  He is supposed to be done for the Cloth and Clay Doll site...this weekend...and this is turning out to be a verrrry busy week.  And...it's getting old that he glares at me like that all the time when I am trying to work on him........

Ladies day golfing begins tomorrow...and I have only hit balls once since last October....yi9kes!  Oh, please let me able to hit the ball sort of okay and not totally embarrass myself.  Yes it is a bit stressful, but, once I get past that part...I love it.

I'm already signed up for more lessons...and... wonder of wonders..this year the club is starting a mentorship program.  Alright! I signed up for that as soon as I saw them advertise it.  From that I hope to be able to learn more about the actual game..proper etiquette, rules, and ... manage to find some regular playing partners so that I don't have to jump in with total strangers every time I try to get out there.  That is the really tough part for me it seems.  This should mean more regular golfing and therefore.... better game.  Oh, I sure hope so!  I'm determined to golf well.



















adding a flower to little Fleur....or whatever her real name will be when done....actually....maybe that will be it.  Sounds pretty cute....














plus...wash my hair, get some groceries..make some supper..and in between all of that...punch down some bread and get it baked in time for supper.  Portuguese Kale soup.... Caldo Verde...and cornbread.  Oooooohh...   and hopefully this time the loaf will be more tasty than the last one I tried.  I have found dozens of recipes..but so far...not the taste we remember from the best loaf we tasted while in Portugal.  When I find the right one?....definitely will post it.  Until then>> .... try the migas at least?....or perhaps look for a soup recipe? .. I'm sure you will enjoy both.

Rumpel is looking a bit more happier I think now that you have started giving him more attention.
Your little bear looks very cute and that bread looks very mouth watering. Well looks like you have a packed day and I better get on with my doll or I shall be hearing angry noises from that end lol!

Mr Rumpel is starting to look really smart. He's getting a sort of 'attitude' to him each time I look!

Fleur is such a pretty name and seems so appropriate for your dear little bear :D)

Mr. Rumpel is looking pretty cute, in spite of how hard he's trying to be stern and demanding! Love Lil Fleur, too. Wish I had made some more bears (I only made one) back when I could do that kind of thing.
Love the bread too, nothing smells better than bread in the oven!
