I feel for you

The states south and east of us got the storm worse. We got lucky, it came down frozen, didn't melt and re-freeze. My phone lines however are having a problem, but the power lines are faring well. I am hoping that we can make it through this winter without being forced to seek warmth at a friend or family members house.

One of the popular things I have noticed from the homesteaders that I read, is their posting of pretty wintertime photos. Allow me to take this moment to join in. If my phone line will permit me. {blogger won't let me, let's try Flickr}Picture 1079

As you can see, no pretty ice shapes. We are dealing with tiny ice pellets.

I had planned on bread making this weekend. I made a cinnamon loaf, but that we eaten before I could take a photo. But I did manage to save the cinnamon raisin bread.Picture 1080

With all the sleet and the kids stuck in the house, I put them to work braiding. As many of you know, I am not very good at sewing, but I have all these scrapes around the house. I took the clothes and sheets that were not good enough to donate and shredded them. We are making one of those braided rugs. Kept everyone busy, and my weekend wasn't completely filled with the sounds of sibling rivalry.

I would love your cinnamon loaf recipe! I just put a banana bread and some banana/chocolate chip muffins in the oven.

I'm saving all of our old clothes to make rag rugs on the loom. Good luck with your braided rugs! I've done a couple of those, too, but just small ones.

I've always wanted to make a braided rug - I can't wait to hear more about it and to see the finished product!

I am on my lunch break and just reading about the bread...the smells that I think I am able to smell now...yum!

I would love to see your braided rugs! I have always wanted to make one but never have.

I would also like the recipe to the cinnamon bread. Looks great. Thanks for posting a picture.

I also have wanted to make a braided rug, but not tried it. Can't wait to see more!

Add me to the bunch who want to see the braided rug. (And because I'm clueless, I'd also love for you to tell me how to make one!)
