Start of a New Month!

Happy beginning of March everyone.
A lot of things going on this month.
The clocks spring ahead signalling the change of days.
The end of the month is Easter.
It is a start for new beginnings.
We have been puttering around the castle as well.
Since Jackie is hellbent on destroying every toy she owns, I have been trying to find something that she will like to chew, but not demolish in two days.
This was her last toy if you will recall:

Remember it had a ball attached?

I found this one while grocery shopping.

The tag said for tough love.
It started out great.
Jackie was carting it around wherever she went, cuddling, sleeping with it, showing it to perfect strangers.
It seemed to be going so well.
Then the relationship changed.

I woke up to the foot yesterday afternoon.
It was like that scene from The Godfather where Jack Woltz finds the head of the horse in bed with him. D:

Jackie still carts around her toy, just in various pieces, depending on her mood.

Speaking of carting this around....
We are having a fabulous time with the bread maker.
Hubs is on a quest for the perfect sandwich bread.
He thinks the last batch just might be the one.

I was actually on my way to bed and Hubs carried that loaf up the stairs and into the room to show me his creation.
It was pretty good.

We love the pizza dough feature.
I think that is the setting I use the most.

The recipe I use is from This is the simplest I found. It yields 1 pizza or 2 fair medium pizzas. That way we can each have what we want on our pizzas!

I have also been cross stitching and catching up on Pretty Little Liars.

The progress may be slow, but it is steady. I find it relaxes me. I love how the chart makes the difficult decision on what colour to use.

Also, I started a pair of finger-less mitts.

The pattern is Winter Twilight Mitts by Laura Rintala.

I'm sure there are other things to talk about. I just cannot seem to recall them at this time.
I'm off to bed.
I hope you all have a great day!
