Wrapping Up - March, 2011

Good morning,

Here it is the end of March already.  It seems 2011 is flying by.
My Honey and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this month.  Time sure flies when you're having fun.
We had a romantic dinner for two at a favorite restaurant.  That's creme brulee cheesecake that we shared for dessert. 
We are happy to be home from the high seas and back to the family, friends, and comforts of home.
Spring is showing her pretty face...
 ...with some of the flowers we love to welcome each year...
...and we are back to where the cardinals live.  This image was taken through both glass and screen and although it is far from perfect, I am happy to have it.
Of course, one of the first things I did when I came home was bake bread.
The two batches of bread pictured are whole wheat (my recipe here) and Norwegian Cranberry Almond (my recipe here.)

After much encouragement from family and friends I opened my Etsy shop, Evensens Productions.  Will it be successful?  I have been working hard on it and was just delighted to make my first sales.  I hope folks will take a look there when they are shopping. 

And so closes the month of March, 2011.  It has been a good month for us.  I hope it has been a good month for you, too.

Very best,
Lois

For physio, I started to bake bread. Kneading dough would challenge a circus strongman. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

It is fun to go away on a nice trip but it is also nice to be home. The bread looked so tasty.

I Lois, I'm sorry that I've missed so many of your posts lately. It's been crazy around here.
Happy Anniversary to you both. What a wonderful couple you are and I am happy that you were able to spend it back at home and a nice visit to your favorite restaurant.
Also congratulations on your Etsy Shop sales, you go girl!!!

You've had a busy March, and nice that you are home for spring in Ohio. Sounds like you had a lovely anniversary dinner with your honey.

I'll definitely have to check out your shop. Congrats on the accomplishment. It looks like where you are spring is a little further ahead. I'm headed to Texas this weekend, and hope to find some Spring like weather!
