This just in! Home-baked bread brings people together

When I went to play with my nephew this afternoon, I was treated to a few slices of home-baked bread, left behind by my niece for me to taste. She spent last night trying her friend Lisa's new bread making machine! There has been a thaw in High School Freeze Out!

I have been so worried about that girl, and am glad that things appear to be turning around for her. Thanks to my compassionate sister bloggers who understood that, while these things are just part of growing up, they are difficult for the teens involved (and the aunts who love them).
