Nirit Levav - Bicycle Chain Dogs

I'm back, folks! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Our Christmas break was terrific!  Darn the chores that are awaiting though -all that unpacking and laundry!

Meanwhile, here's something to share until I get back into the normal swing of things. Only a week more of total abandonment of routine until school reopens again after a 2 month break. Then it’s back to the regular beat of that daily rhythm that we thrive on.



Using discarded bicycle chains, Israel-based artist Nirit  upcyles them to create life-sized dogs of various breeds.

Santa Bread

This popped up on Pinterest and I thought it was too cute to pass up!
Although mine did kinda look like Santa, it didn't taste like bread! It was hard and bland. Rodney said that was because I didn't add enough sugar for the yeast to feed on and fart! LOL!
I am quite sure it was because I didn't let the dough rest long enough (about an hour). It didn't double in size. Yep, patience just isn't one of my virtues

We are taking a blog break and will be back after Christmas.

Until then....

Merry Christmas, everyone!
