My boys are having fun this morning as a result of my failure! I made bread yesterday–and had the worst flop in probably 12 or 13 years. The bread rose a little in the warmer drawer in the stove, then cooked on top because the oven was running, then fell. I baked it anyway, but ended up with little flat bricks. The boys cut them open this morning and hollowed them out, then tried floating their “boats”. Good way to soak the crusts for the chickens! I’m going to turn the insides they hollowed out into bread crumbs, so we won’t entirely lose the batch of bread–and I’m making a new batch today.
[…] December 1, Thursday. Another long day for Gayle; he put in 12 hours. He was in the Small Goods room again yesterday and today and will be tomorrow. The supervisor there is taking time off because his sister died. Today, the man that replaced Gayle there was bringing in a piece of equipment, and as he came through the door the thing fell apart, smashing his fingers! He had to go to the doctor, so Gayle was on his own the rest of the day with a little help from this person and that. Tomorrow the man plans to be back, but won’t be able to do much as he has to keep his fingers dry. Gayle has to start early as a result. […]
Your boys sound like ours! Always thinking about creating something! I made bricks once too! The children had a lot of fun with them and then the dog chewed on them 🙂 Enjoyed your post! God bless
