Hope sinks....

I woke up this morning filled with hope.  I was going to make a primo batch of grandma's cinnamon rolls.  I was psyched and confident.  
So hopeful

Still hopeful....

Then.....during the "rolling phase" hope began to get a little tenuous..... And with good reason

Hope sank!  They are in the trash.  I'll try again next weekend.  I think I need to practice more.  So instead I made instant cream of wheat for breakfast. Not the same :(

Since then the laundry is tumbling, the slow cooker is cooking, the kitchen is sparkling again, Netflix is streaming and I deserve something

And an un-related topic, I finally removed the Christmas ornaments from my display ball and replaced with these fun balls.  They should do the trick for awhile

Later I hope to get to this.  My hook is getting dusty

Happy Downton Abbey Day!  I wonder what will happen tonight?  


  1. Sounds like you are having a wonderful day (except for the cin. rolls).. enjoy

  2. Oh dear, hated to see those rolls go to the trash. But it looks like you have turned the bad start of the morning into a wonderful day. WooHoo, it is Downtown Abbey day!

  3. I don't know what went wrong with the cinnamon rolls but they look perfectly yummy to me... They would have to be pretty bad before I would throw them in the trash. I give you brownie points for trying.

    If they stuck to the pan, next time you might try some parchment paper in the pan and nothing will stick to it. I use some all the time in my pans when I bake and I love it, even when I bake brownies.

    You seem to have everything well under control. Love your fun balls, just the right color for Valentine.

    Bailey is a good friend to have around.

  4. Those cinnamon rolls look perfectly fine to me!
    Dust off that hook and get busy.
    Hugs :)

  5. Just think of all of the calories you saved. :) I think they would have turned out if you had just baked them. They looked wonderful to me.
    I love your bowl of yarn balls on your table.
    I think a great day would be a hooking day. It is a dull and dreary day here, just a perfect hooking day. Have a nice evening.

  6. Sometimes ugly tastes wonderful. I would of baked them, taste, then decided if they needed to get trashed. But the calories saved was a plus. Yes, today is a good hooking day, thick pea soup fog where I live.

  7. I hope you try again. To me it looked like there was too much filling for them to roll properly. I would have baked them anyway to see what happens. Maybe it would be good to check a Utube video. I love them for learning how to do most anything.

  8. Wunderbar minis? Why have those not graced the shelves of my snack shack?!?!?!

  9. I bought a new bottle of Vermont ice which is much like bailys but with a hint of maple oh yea! Enjoying it tonight waiting for Downton Abbey.
    Sorry your cinnamon rolls didn't work very frustrating.

  10. Awww, Kim, I hate when I ready to bake and shit happens. Looks like you made up, yum,hugs Francine.

  11. Baileys always makes things better! A slow cooker meal always makes Sunday special.

  12. Too bad about the rolls....gosh I haven't made those in a long time. My taste buds are dying for some now, thank you very much. lol Maybe I should try to make some up.

    Love making slow cooker meals.

    I'm thinking of starting to do punch needle rugs or embroidery. Looks like it would be fun. I spent a bit of money on supplies.

    Do you use a cutting machine to cut your wool strips for your mats?

    Gotta run, take care, Janet W

  13. I would have baked those, but you saved yourself a ton of calories by eating the cereal...good luck with your next batch! Take care with this big storm heading your way. We got a bunch of snow today and staying inside was a good thing.
