January 3. Day 3 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I’m baking bread today. Maybe it’s a good time to break some bread, too. It’s a beautiful sunny morning with a temperature of -13℃. It is -11℃ in the greenhouse. I wonder how warm it will get in the afternoon. The days are getting longer. I will have to start some tomatoes, peppers and eggplants soon. I can plant tomatoes in the greenhouse in March. I don’t have to worry about low temperatures at night since we have a little heater can kicks in at certain set temperature. The peppers and eggplants are slow growing and need a long growing season.
With the beautiful weather out, I’m itching to go skiing. I’ve got the skier’s high and addiction. I will hold myself in check and tend to the home hearth. When I get everything tended to and there’s time, I will go. I like to go in the early mornings when the sun is just rising. Then I feel I’m one with the universe. But I am learning to be more flexible. Afternoons are fine, too. The bread needs baking. Lunch need to be need. Then there is the clean up. I am learning order also.
A successful day! And I am sitting here, sipping a decaf and having a piece of my freshly baked bread with my home made chokecherry jelly. I’m tapping the finishing touch to this post. Not a great post but I have to be satisfied with it. There are so many things calling for my attention. And I want to heed their calls. I couldn’t resist the sun. It pulled me out to the ski trail though I was tired. It was a good picker upper for late afternoon fatigue.

Lovely pictures of the snow. Here in Richmond VA (USA) it was 68 degrees. I envy your stamina for an afternoon ski.
Thanks, Cheryl. I feel invigorated after skiing. The outdoors relieves fatigue after working all day in the house. I envy your weather. At 68° you can still grow stuff outside – in January!
Hi Lily is seems like you had a great day. The sun always makes me feel better and the smell of fresh baked bread means I will have to get some exercise in the fresh air to compensate for the extra calories.. Blog on !
Thanks, Doug. Yes, it was a very nice day. Lots of sun!
Lovely pictures.How many loaves did you bake?How long do you store them ?I bake my own bread too and it’s the best thing cooking wise I learned that changed my life.
Thank you! I bake 6 loaves at a time. I freeze them so they can keep a long time. I bake probably once a month. It’s very therapeutic, kneading dough.
