How one can get easily distracted in the kitchen


I made Focaccia yesterday for the first time and 
while I was cleaning up the extra flour I saw in
that pile of flour a Mermaid.


So then I had to start fiddling around
to see what else I could make.
I could have gone on forever, but
realized while I was drawing with flour
my sweetie pie was sweating away 
building his workshop in the garage.


I am so easily distracted....
and Russell can be so focused!


We've been here about 18 months and Russell
finally has time to put his garage in order! Hurrah!

Your focaccia looks delicious. HA...that looks exactly like a mermaid.

Kudos on getting the garage done. Over the summer, mine has gotten terribly messy, and I can't find the initiative to get out there and clean it up.

Bread looks delicious! How did it taste?
Easily distracted. My wife would've played with the flour as well.

I have never had Focaccia before. I must try it. And I believe you've discovered a new art form - flour art :)

I love walking around the house holding a loaf of freshly baked bread. There's something amazingly comforting about it.

The bread looks awesome. Awesome.

I'm easily distracted since I've retired. I was very focused then, but now? Not so much.

Have a terrific day honey. :)
