Today the attic got filled with blown insulation, and I think the AC is already having an easier time keeping it cool in here. Next project are the windows, which will cost about $3500 to have all nine replaced. |
On an amusing but irritating note, I purchased six scarves on ebay for the peasant blouse sewing project and got the package today. Instead of three white and three black scarves, there were three white and three black garter belts. I contacted the seller who is sending the right order out tomorrow and didn't even request the garter belts be sent back. This mucks with my timetable a bit but nothing too bad. No clue what I'm going to do with the garter belts, I'll keep them around for a bit in case the seller suddenly wants them shipped back.
I started playing around with my bread recipe, and cutting back on the high gluten flour gave me a much less gummy texture. Unfortunatly I forgot to put salt in the dough so the bread is rather bland, but the experiment has proven that adjusting the recipe has positive results. Next I'll try adding pectin to the dough, it's supposed to act as an enhancer.
