Lilly's Hair, Bacon and Twins!

BLT sandwiches were on the menu for today and when we cooked the bacon we purposefully cooked way more than we would eat.  Consequently, we have enough for leftover BLT's, which will be eaten for breakfast (oh yes, BLT's are great for breakfast) or for lunch.  If after a couple of days there is any left, I'll break it up into pieces for bacon pieces and freeze them for future use.  This is another way we get ahead in the kitchen!

The twins needed to spend the night with us tonight as their mommy has to be somewhere tomorrow really, really early in the morning, long before they have to be at school.  We'll get them up and off to school for her.  We enjoy having them over and usually try to do something specific with them.  This evening we finished working on Lilly's hair.

As I worked both twins sat around me handing me the items I needed.  We talked, they giggled and laughed and we shared lots of things while Lilly got her new hairdo.  It was a nice evening, it reminded me of years gone by when my children were young and still at home.

I have been ask how I did Lilly's hair, here's the link to the YouTube instructions I followed.  I chose to braid her hair in small braids as it was the best fit for the condition of her hair.  I am very pleased with the way it all turned out!

The high temp today was 41 degrees ... again!  

I hope you've had a great day!

  1. A cold 40 degrees here today. I am looking forward to warmer days!

  2. Aw I think Lilly looks great! Love her braids!
    Hope that you are feeling better.

  3. I thought you meant 40c. Ha ha! Of course not...you live in the US not Australia 😂

    1. Nanna Chel, LOL, the 40c's will come in the summer for us!

  4. I often make extra of certain food itmes as well, especially the things I know will get eaten as leftovers or are perfect for a lunch item. Last night I made baked potatoes in the oven. I figured if I was going to have the oven on for and hour, I might as well make a bunch. Now we have several baked potatoes in the fridge to eat up over the next few days.

    Great job on Lilly's hair! I'm glad you are enjoying the visit with the twins.

    1. Rhonda, that's smart thinking on the potatoes. You not only got ahead in the kitchen but you saved money by utilizing your oven to full compacity. This is the kind of thing I'm trying to do more of.

      I'm pleased with the way Lilly's hair turned out too, thank you.
