The Simple Things

Today was supposed to be a day of resting and recuperating after a hard day and night with the stomach bug, but Mike got called into work, so that plan was not to be.

The boys and I managed, even though I had very little energy.   We pushed through, watched a bit more TV than normal, and everyone managed.

But today's blessing came in the form of our dinner.   It wasn't anything exciting (just leftovers out of the fridge), but I had managed to sneak in a loaf of potato bread into our bread machine earlier in the afternoon.  I love the person who invented the bread machine.   Seriously.  It takes me 5 minutes to dump in all of the ingredients into the bread pan, and voila!, three hours later the house smells amazing and we have a piping hot fresh loaf of bread to enjoy.

So today, my blessing came in the form of a simple loaf of bread, still warm from baking.  It was delicious.

    And I agree, the bread machine is one of the best inventions... since sliced bread. ;)
