Sunday - A Day of Rest

Sunday really should be a day of rest, but having been quite ill over the past week I decided I need to catch up on all those jobs. My voice is just about back, but I don't need my voice to do these jobs.
Firsty I made a pair of chef pants and a bag to go with them. I teach Home Economics and wear chef pants - the students love to see my collection and I find it so much easier to wear these around the classroom. These ones a bit snazzy and quite different from my other pairs. My Year 11 students have their practical exams over the next few weeks, so I will be wearing these to brighten up the place.
Once they were completed and hung up I decided to make some bread as part of my one small change for 2010. I found fabric bread bags
here! and made a couple. I may give one to my sister who loves to make bread.
My lovely hubby has been trying to outwit the squirrel who comes a calling everyday to help himself to the seeds from the feeder. Here he is trying another tactic. The birds just love this feeder.
The sky was so blue today and after all the snow we certainly deserved some sunshine and so after all the jobs were finished we had a walk.
I made a very hot chilli con carne for supper and we ate it with the home-made bread.
So much for a rest day.
Hope you have all had a good weekend.

I love the idea of wearing chef's pants at school. You must be a very entertaining and dedicated teacher. And, you will probably never outwit those squirrels (I'm sorry to say). They will find a way -- they always do.

I made two bread bags after I read that post from Amanda this past summer, and I have to say that that they have held up so well. I think that it is so neat that you are making bread for the challenge, and I am excited to hear how many different recipes that you come up with, because with all of the culinary goodness that you have shared, I can only imagine what you are creating :)

your sewing is fabulous! how are the bread bags working for you to keep the bread fresh? i, too, saw them when amanda soule made them, but i admit, i have continued recycling plastic produce bags i already had (which i think i am not supposed to do with one-use plastics) to hold my bread.
love the birdfeeder. my parents got one for my son for christmas and we are loving the feathered friends it is bringing our way!
