It's a wet and chilly day. I know I've mentioned numerous times how very dry it has been. Well, these past 3 days we've had so much rain, at times so heavy that the water ran straight over the edge of the roof missing the gutters completely. It seemed a good day to bake so I got bread dough started in the bread maker and began to make a date square ( matrimonial square to some). DH has always loved anything made with dates but I wasn't as fond of them as he. Then I started putting dried cranberries and/or raisins in with the dates. It's much more to my liking now.
I did pop into the thrift store this morning but found very little. Just one cup and a pretty saucer. Just as well since I'm running out of space.
On the weekend I found these interesting looking bulbs at Walmart. Does anyone know anything about them? I did look them up and they seem easy enough to grow so I'll plant them and see what comes up next Spring. They're related to Alliums and I've had no luck getting those to grow and bloom. Maybe these will be hardier. I do think that many bulbs simply rot during our very wet Winters.
Almost time to think about making supper. A pot of vegetable soup would go very nicely with the freshly baked bread.
I hope you had a good day!
