Big Trouble!

I am in BIG trouble! A homemade bread store opened up next to where I work!!!! OMG  I love bread.
Can you see what they are? That is sliced orange/cranberry bread you know I already tried it mmmm and the rolls are asiago. We had those for dinner tonight with burgers mmmmmmm.               
 Now let me tell you about where I work. I work on Main street of a little college town. When you open the door to my store you go right to the book store I manage OR left to a ice cream/candy store. That's right Candy! I have to walk through the candy store to get to the bathroom. They make their own hand dipped chocolate cones that smells like brownies cooking. I beg them to do that in the morning when I am not so likely to eat chocolate. And now a bread store just 3 doors down. So if you hear on the news that they had to cut a woman out of her house (or job) in NH because she couldn't get out a door, that my friends will be me!
I did find a couple of books at the thrift store today. not so sure about the cake doctor may take it to work. but I love the best things anybody ever said. I will use them in my posts.
I received an award today from sweet vintagesue I am suppose to tell you 7 things about me you do not know. hmmm 1. Not that great of a house keeper I can always find something I would rather be doing. but clean enough to get by.  2. l love to swim 3.I am afraid of heights 4.I only have one child and she is the most amazing person you will ever meet and I am not the only one who says this. It has nothing to do with what I did, she was born amazing. 5.I enjoy being alone. Not all the time but when I am, I enjoy it. my husband does not. 6.I have a small group of close friends, they are the best friends anyone every had. I could count on them for anything. 7. I love blogging a bit to much. 8. I make the bed every morning. I hate an unmade bed. Now I am suppose to chose my favorite bloggers which is impossible so I will leave it at this.
Oh I have 2 new followers since last night!! Welcome! Do you think I will hit 100 by Jan 27th??? my blogging anniversary. Lauren was right I did whine about lack of followers before, no more whining. Love ya Lauren
So now I will close with a quote: The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.      -unknown.  I am limitless yahooooooooooo

Cathy, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I much appreciate it.

You are making my mouth water and I just finished supper. My belly is full, yet there's always room for fresh bread of any kind. yummm.

I've been collecting cookbooks from the thrift stores and I had to stop for lack of space. What I found is that now I have so many cookbooks that I don't know where to find those special recipes that I come across and I spend more time looking for it. I should just rip the pages out and put them in one big binder in plastic sleeves. I'm sorry to say that I'm limitless too. JB

Oh, nothing smells better than homemade bread. Being that close would drive me crazy too. The asiago rolls sound like heaven. I am a bit of a cookbook collector too. I love reading them - probably more than cooking.

I love bread too! Maybe if you don't eat breakfast or lunch you'll be OK!!! LOL!!!! Your post reminded me of a little Italian lady I used to take the train from Boston with, she complained about a new bread store that had opened a few doors down from her office and when I asked her the problem she said that she could "easily tank out on bread." OMG, so funny! Have a great day!
