Bread is a staple breakfast food in our house. We ran out yesterday morning and I must have thought bread would magically appear because I did not make or buy any. Sadly, this did not happen. This morning there was a slight panic in the search for an acceptable first breakfast but after we were fed, I realized I had two options: make some bread, or drive to the store to buy bread. And since I'm in gas saving mode, my only real option was to bake some bread. And here it is:
Nothing beats the smell of fresh baked bread. I'm so sorry that I can't post the smell.
But where does Mr. Henley fit into this?
Well, I find music can make almost any chore that you are not really into at the moment much more fun. It usually makes the process a little longer (although I'm not going to share exactly why this is) but more fun. And this morning, I chose Don Henley.
Is is really summer without listening to a little Don Henley? (While watching that video, I realized that Don Henley was kinda cute. He's no longer just the old guy who sang some good songs. Of course, this opinion was generated when I was 13 and I like to think I have matured a little since then.) Looking back, I can't help thinking how tame my summers have become in the last 10 years. I no longer have the 'brown skin shining in the sun', my convertible has long since been sold, and my 'boys of summer' are limited to two. (That would be my husband and my son of course :-) But his songs still bring back memories of those carefree summer days, when the sunny days and warm nights seemed to last forever.
And this got me curious... is there any songs or bands or singers that transport you back to summers of the past? Let me know in the comments :-)
