Y is for…

It’s Thursday and I’m taking the easy way out for now with a Thursday Thankful post — featuring the letter Y!

Yellow — I’m still getting yellow dandelions daily as presents…. I love it!  These tiny yellow wildflowers (I don’t know what they are called) have started peeping out on the grassy medians of roads here too… they are so pretty!

Yeast — I pulled out the breadmaker last week for the first time in years.  I made dinner rolls twice and italian bread once.  I really enjoyed being able to make some homemade bread and will be experimenting more often.  I have a whole jar of yeast in the refrigerator now so I have no excuse to not make homemade bread…. and it is so much cheaper and tastier than storebought!

You (or maybe… Y’all, since I almost wrote on the South today… and might still)— my blog readers, who have been supportive through yet another week.  Thanks!

And I can’t leave a Y post without paying homage to one of my favorite movies… so here’s a scene from Dead Poet’s Society featuring the word Yawp!

  1. Feel free to come pick all the yellow dandelions from my lawn!


  2. I don’t think you took the easy way out at all!!! This was great, I racked my brain to come up with something semi decent!!! I’m looking forward to having completed the challenge and having one thing underneath my belt!

    Dandelions are really pretty!!! I love bread so I love yeast, lol!!!

    I love that you chose Yawp too, Dead Poet’s Society is one of my favorites!!! I watch at least once a year!


  3. I love yellow too 🙂

    And now I think I”‘m going to dig out my breadmaker. Sounds really good!


  4. Mmmmm– home made bread—wish I had some right now. Have you ever had dandelion green salad? I remember having some many years ago and it was quite good.

    have over a dozen dandelions growing in my back yard. most of my neighbors detest them. well, i’m going to let mine go to seed and the good Lord can send a strong wind to scatter the seeds where ever He chooses.

    i love homemade bread, rolls, and cinammon rolls. you gonna send us some?:)


  6. I loved the visuals of your post; I love to bake bread and have a little one hand me a bouquet of
    dandelions! Thanks for visiting me! You wrote a fun Y post!
