Blog Your Blessings Sunday

Some call it coincidence. Some call it synchronicity. I call it blessing!

My breadmaker was destroyed when Hurricane Charlie swept through southern Florida. At the time I was traveling a lot, and decided replacing it was not a priority. The past few years I have missed the simple joy and unspeakable delight of fresh, homemade bread. This winter I decided to do something about it.

The hunt began. Search as I might I couldn't find breadmakers anywhere. ANYWHERE!!!! None of the boxes under the tree held a breadmaker in its festive wrapping.


Some call it Goodwill. Some call it Salvation Army. I call it "The Boutique."

I pop in for a post-Christmas perusal and there it is. My breadmaker. Looks brand new, complete with recipe book. Thank You thank You thank You!

The ham and bean soup has been simmering since yesterday. It goes perfectly with the first loaf of fresh bread!

  1. A lovely story - it goes perfectly with my ongoing (occasionally difficult) quest to be a lighter consumer. Have you investigated The Compact? I have a link on my site.

    Thanks for visiting, by the way :)
