It seems lately my baking has been somewhat sporadic.
Today, I blame it again on the air conditioner.
It’s fixed, but wasn’t completed until later this afternoon with the temperature outside being a good 110 degrees AGAIN.
So I don’t think I have to tell you that it took good three to four hours to cool the house down to a reasonable temperature.
The last thing I wanted to do while the inside thermometer was dropping was to slow it down by using ANY type of appliance.
So, it’s been a lazy day here at the 365 homestead watching Ree Drummond of The Pioneer Woman debut her new show on The Food Network, NOT doing laundry, and NOT baking, although I did sweep.
And we were pleasantly surprised by Mr. 365 taking us out to dinner while the air conditioner worked its’ magic after spending a small fortune to have it repaired.
Yet the most rewarding part of my day came when I was able to spend a few hours connecting with family and friends on the east coast to make sure that so far everyone was alright.
I pray that I will be blessed with the same news tomorrow.
The forecast looks pretty dismal for the neighborhood and home where I grew up; the same neighborhood and home in which Mr. 365 and I began raising our children until moving to Arizona.
Whenever there was a threat of a hurricane we were ALWAYS evacuated. Our home was across the street from the water of Narragansett Bay.
I’m concerned for everyone on the east coast and pray that everyone stays safe and that damage is minimal. I know that there have already been a few fatalities and prayers go out to their families.
Wherever you are tonight, be safe, hug those you love and pay it forward tomorrow.
There will be plenty of people needing some sort of assistance all around the world.
BIG baking hugs!!!
