Day 313 – Making Bread


20140103_174611Today was quite a hodgepodge of activity: Church, Lowe’s, Menard’s, Kroger, and Dry Cleaners followed by some writing and a surprise visit from my son and his girlfriend.  In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the day, I made baguettes for dinner, suet for the birds and pumpkin butter for friends and family.  It was quite a day.

However, I am rather discouraged.  Somehow, over the holidays, I managed to gain more weight and injure my knee and/or hamstring.  Any activity now results in quite a bit of pain.  It is nothing more than a dull, constant ache on the interior of my knee…until I try to go upstairs when it feels like my hamstring is popping off the joint of my leg.  I’ve taken to the motrin and ice and rest which, combined with the homemade bread and pumpkin butter, isn’t helping my diet plan.

I don’t think it will be too much of a problem unless I start gnawing on the suet out of boredom!
