Wouldn't you know, it is actually a sunny day and I am inside baking. This has been a cold, rainy summer and, as insensitive it is to the many farmers suffering drought, I am so tired of being damp and having cold feet in the middle of summer. However, I promised one son that I would make cookies and the other one bust out with a plea for hot dog buns - and I wanted apple pie. So I made all of them.
All of this meant that I have been in the kitchen for the last several hours while the sun shines outside. I just have the worst timing - yesterday would have been perfect for staying inside and baking: it was drizzly and cold all day. Instead, I went for a five mile walk, played with Gibby, and went to look at a car with my almost-18 year old (and stood in the rain talking about said car - Hilo people, we're used to rain).
I need a weather crystal ball!
