I really enjoy baking. I think I've written before about the relaxing affect it has on me. As much as I enjoy it, I just haven't been baking much lately, so this morning I decided to pick out an apron, drag out the flour and get busy. I have never had any success making scones. As much as I try to not over-mix them, they always come out like dry hockey pucks. I haven't even bothered to try making any scones for probably a couple of years now, but this morning I decided it was time to give it another go. I bought some crystallized ginger a little while ago and haven't really put it to use, so I thought it would be nice to make some scones using the ginger - and I was right. I found a recipe online and was thrilled with the results. I typically prefer scones that aren't too sweet, but these were quite sweet, and so deliciously moist. I made my first successful scones today, and I was so excited you'd think I had just climbed Mt. Everest. Maybe scones are my Mt. Everest of baking. I'm not really sure what I did differently this time, I just hope I am able to do it again.
Today I also finished up a new art quilt I'd started a couple of weeks ago. I have already sketched out several more I want to make. As soon as I can, I will post some photos of what I've done.
I finally got around to calling customer service about the usb port on my computer. Of course, the department I needed is closed on Sundays, so I'm going to have to try to find some time to do it this week. I'm pretty sure I need a new motherboard, and I'm trying to figure out how much it's going to cost me. It's so frustrating that one small thing (the usb port) can leave me so helpless.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
