this weekend....

Yesterday (Saturday) I tried my hand on bread making again. This time I followed the recipe 0n the back of the wheat flour bag that I have.
I'm not sure if it's a total success granted it didn't rise as big as the ones I saw on the youtube videos that I've been watching but it did rise and as far as I'm concern, I can say I was able to make bread!!!
Here's a look at it, I decided to not make a loaf, because I wanted to divide the batter and make different types out of it.


I make a tiny loaf and some rolls with it. Next time, I'm going to try to make it more "aesthetically" pretty.

and then I also made this pizza with some of the dough


needless to say I was in my kitchen ALL day long yesterday.

I feel so tired today because I've stayed up late the past two nights watching these....

The Lovely Bones


review: I was scared with this movie. Yeah I know, it doesn't sound or look scary, but it did for me. I was at some point being like a little kid, covering my eyes with my hand during the "scary" scenes and telling Mitch to let me know when the scene ends.
I think the story is very interesting and it makes me wanna borrow the book that it was based on. But the only thing that I didn't get was the scenes from what is supposed to be the "in between" (between the earth and what I'm assuming as heaven) world where she was surrounded by some wonderful but weird landscapes. I felt it didn't fit with the rest of the movie.

and then last night this....
Invictus

review: This movie was good. Matt Damon deserved his nomination in this being that he had to have an accent and bulk up a lot for the rough role of a rugby player. I loved, loved, loved how Nelson Mandela was so inspiring. It seemed like every line Morgan Freeman had to deliver, spoken by Mandela inspired me!!! Love it a lot!
There were a couple of things that I thought was hard to get over with in this movie..... I do not have any clue what Rugby is and so to watch a movie with that sport as the main plot lost me in so many scenes and the various accents or attempt to have an accent was getting me confused. At the middle of the movie, I had to put on the subtitles because I can't hardly understand what they were saying.

And finally a photo of our newly painted front room...


As you can see it is still a work in progress but I'm so happy with the flowers on the wall all gone! You don't know how long I've been waiting for them to go away. *wink*

So that's it. Till next time,
Grace
