cleaning and baking

It has taken a few months, but now the house that I am living in is starting to look and feel like an actual home. The kitchen is functional and organized to make sense. The front room is actually a place that I would like to greet company in. The living room is starting to look less like a pigsty and more like a normal room everyday. The office is no longer a crazy man's room full of papers that go their to die. The bathrooms are no longer libraries of old newspapers and my bedroom is slowly becoming a normal looking bedroom. Soon the whole house will be awesome and nice looking.

In the next few days I am going to be teaching my boyfriend and whoever else is in the house that wants to learn how to make potica and baklava. I am excited to make it again. I need to acquire a nut chopper first. I am slowly getting all of the ingredients for my recipes that I need.


  1. Isn't it awesome when a new place starts feeling homey? Have fun teaching your bf!

    Man, I give you so much credit for working black Friday. I don't know how people do it. I'm not tough enough!

  2. Bridget - I have a nut chopper for you. I will send it to Chippewa Falls with Courtney when she goes home for Winter break. Anything else you need? I've been cleaning out closets & the basement...Aunt Nancy
