I wanted work, right? Be careful what you ask for. My butt has been in a chair for about 15 or 16 hours a day lately. My eyes are crossing. I forgot what knitting is.
For those that asked about the bagels, they were great the next day, as well as frozen and toasted. The recipe can be found here. If I made them again, and I think I will, this weekend, I would double the recipe and make 12 instead of 16 as I like my bagels NYC sized. And I think I will lighten up on the salt. They were otherwise very tasty.
Little progress has been made on knitting projects so I’ve nothing to say. Go read our TV blog because at least that one is seeing a little more Jackie Action than you’re getting here. I’ll return soon. I promise.

Yeay for work, boo for too much work. Isn’t that always the way, though? I’m up for drinks whenever you need to take some time off. Just let me know, you crazy Lush-head!

Same here. My sympathies. I’m using it as an excuse to eat whatever I want…

thanks for the recipe! like i need more bagels… but really, thanks. sorry work is kicking your behind. i know that feeling, but I’m torn between exhaustion and gratitude for having the job. Sigh.

i love that poem! haven’t heard that line in years. hang in there!

Can I put in an order for a bagel from the next batch? I don’t think I’ve ever had a homemade bagel.

And work? When it rains it pours. Or maybe that’s just from looking out my window.

I love that poem so much! Keep up the hard work, but don’t run yourself into the ground!

Hi! I just found your blog, and your little pup is so cute. I like those little corkscrew curls bichons get. Mine is still too young for the corkscrews, but they’re starting! Those bagels look like they’re good, I think I’m going to have to try that recipe- thanks!
