weekend... already?


no-knead bread

maple scones


Wow, time sure flies! I can't believe it's already Friday. I don't have a lot of time at the moment, but wanted to share the pictures I've been taking of my breakfasts. Plus last night I decided to make more bread! I mixed it up last night and let it sit overnight for about 12 hours. I'd say it turned out rather nice. It's delicious, too.

On a different note, I'm thinking of doing the whole no-shampoo thing again. Awhile back I broke down and used shampoo and when you do that, it's so hard to get back into the no-shampoo routine. But right now my hair is just nasty. I shampoo it and it's still gross. I blame it on the weather. Anyhow, I'm going to post more about this later, but wanted to give a little shout-out to anyone who wants to join me. No shampooing for at least six weeks! We could start a little support group, taking a picture every two weeks to see the progress. If you're interested, check out my next post.

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

p.s. Thank you all for the breakfast suggestions! They're great!


  1. aw you are too cute! i just always imagine you with a hot tea cup in hand with some scrumptious baked good. ;)

    hmm this 6 weeks-hair care sounds interesting! my hair is completely FRIED but it gets greasy within two days! you may sell me with your next post ;)

  2. I'm with you. The last time I did the no-shampoo thing, it was awesome. Once I got through the first three or four weeks, it was smooth sailing. Somehow along the way, I forgot and washed my hair. It's been horrible ever since, greasy but with a dry scalp. Blech. Winter is always hard on my skin, but I think the hair-washing (especially since I use Dr. Bronner's soap, which is really drying) is just compounding the issue. So, I'm joining in! This time, it will be easier because I just cut my hair down to an inch. Is that cheating? :)

    I wonder if I've ever commented before...anyway, I love your blog. I wish you would come to our little cabin in the woods and teach me how to use my sewing machine. :) :) :)

  3. Erica, you should totally do it!! of course, no pressure or anything, but... :) and btw, i have been drinking tons and tons of Earl Grey tea lately and it's so good. hits the spot, i tell ya!

    Shannon, i don't think you have commented here before, but i'm so glad you did! i would love it if you would like to join in the no-shampoo with me! so you live in a cabin in the woods?? gosh i am jealous!! i'd love to come teach you how to sew. do you spin? that is something i would love to learn someday.

  4. right now we're staying with friends while we fix up the cabin...we should be moving into it in the next couple of months...we're in southern vermont and it wasn't quite winter-ready. i can't wait until it thaws so we can get the work done and finish moving. i'm hoping to build a small strawbale studio next to it, also, but that might be a project for next summer. in the meantime, i have a studio going in my friends' old barn, just down the driveway now and a 1/2 hour hike from the cabin.

    and yes, indeed, i do spin! right now my handspun business is very small, but my goal is to grow it this year along with my feltwork and hand dyed spinning fibers. i just started teaching spinning this past month at my local yarn shop. someday we'll have to get together and do a spinning/sewing instructional swap! :)
