I had several more rows done, but I had to rip them back because I goofed. Now I think I'm just going to set this aside and move on to something else. I have a list of doilies I want to make. I may never use yarn again!
Lemon juice and zest...
Apricot Banana Bread
I saw some of this bread on Lucy's (Attic24) blog many days ago, and I kept thinking about it and wanting to make it. The link she gave for the recipe HERE is in metric measurements and it's never worked out for me when I've tried to convert recipes to American terms, so I searched and searched until I found one as similar in ingredients as I could. Pay dirt! Here is how I made mine with a few little adjustments included.
Apricot Banana Bread
1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. dried apricots, chopped
1 c. mashed bananas (2 med.)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 c. sugar
1 stick melted butter
1 1/2 tbsp. buttermilk or sour milk
1 lemon (I used about 1 Tbsp of juice and 2 tsp zest or less)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Combine bananas, eggs, sugar, butter, buttermilk, lemon zest, and lemon juice and beat until smooth. Stir in flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Stir in apricots, and raisins. Pour into greased and floured bread pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until pick comes out dry.

Oh yes. It's good.
I ordered myself some perfume the other day. Weirdly, I order perfume online a lot without knowing what it smells like. I knew when I read this had musk and sandlewood in it that I'd like it, and sure enough, I do.
I got the body lotion too. People can smell you better if you use both, but it's not so strong that it singes their eyebrows off when you walk by. It's by Jessica Simpson, and it's called Vintage Bloom. She's got a new one coming out very soon, but I don't know what it's called. I have one of her purses too. I like her.
There was something else I was going to tell you...hmm. What was it?
Oh, yeah...that book, Pam of Babylon, I told you I was gonna read?
It was good!
Now they've got me by the short hairs (I hate that saying. Why did I say that?), and I'm going to buy the others in the series. I got the first one for free from BookBub. The second one is only 99 cents though (Kindle Fire edition) HERE.
This is #2
I wonder what will happen next?
And then next?
