Beautiful Sunny Days

It's been so lovely and warm here.
We've been stomping in puddles and playing outside all day.
The inside of my house looks like no one has done any cleaning for a few days, but I know the snow will come back so we're enjoying it while we can.

Baby toes, because they're just so cute!

I've become one of those.

It all started on Saturday afternoon. Jeremy came home from town with a deepfryer.
I've never wanted a deepfryer, and whenever offered one I've always refused on the premises that deepfried food is bad for you and should be a treat. Something that should require great amounts of effort to do. And should never be taken lightly.
Plus actually owning a deepfryer smacks of boxed suppers, yard cars, misspelled tattoos and duct tape.
So far my deepfrying efforts have consisted of Chinese chicken balls and onion strings about twice a year; fried in a pan on the stove.
But now I have this THING, sitting on my counter. Seeing as he had made the effort and actually bought it. I thought I'd better show some appreciation and made homemade french fries for supper. They were pretty great, and surprisingly my kitchen didn't smell too bad. But I wasn't going to admit it.
Then came Monday, and right there in my facebook newsfeed was a recipe for donuts. Coincidence?
I made the donuts.

And they were perfectly light and fluffy, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

So I have succumbed.
