this week

This week we…

…had weather that has been rainy and cold and warm and sunny – we’ve enjoy them both

…discovered that you can make cinnamon  rolls out of my bread recipe

…made a six loaf batch of whole wheat bread instead of a two loaf batch of french bread, thus the discovery of cinnamon rolls

…spent the equivalent of one day taking defensive driving online – good reminder to be more aware of speed limit changes (we as in, I)

…began costuming for both drama performances my children are in this year

…strained lots of beeswax and formed it into .75oz and 2oz blocks – thanks to silicon muffin tins

…used the beeswax to make our own food covers to replace plastic wrap (mine aren’t as pretty as hers)

…worked many hours on The Gardening Notebook – release date coming soon

To round out the week we’re off to get some mushroom compost for the garden…praying for a less eventful trip this time…

I looked at the other blog to see what the beeswax wraps were. I am wondering how they stick? Or do you have to tie it on?

They kind of stick to themselves. If you read the comments there's discussion of sewing some elastic in the fabric first and then coating with beeswax. Right now I have some cheese wraped in one and it's doing great. I was going to put a rubber band around it but it seems to be fine without one. Good thing since I can't find one. I think to cover bowls and such the elastic would be good or a really big peice to wrap all over, including the bottom of the bowl.
