thank you!!

I have no intention of bragging, but I simply must Praise God for how He worked out a fun little blessing for me. To make a long story short, my good friend Beth, along with a couple mutual friends, arranged for me to get her older, not working quite right Bosch mixer! Well, so far it seems to be working well enough. I will be happy if only works twice! Thank you so much Beth and for your part Kari, and I have to thank Lynn too (as she would have it no other way hee) for helping me get it in my hands. (she said I could say that) :)

I already have my whisper mill grinder, which I have been loving. I bought that last year before B got sick. I've always liked the idea of the very powerful Bosch mixer since making 6 loaves at once does call my name, however, I have happily resigned myself to not spending the money on one for my current season of life and have used my kitchen aid often. Well, let me tell you, it's still a work of love to make these, especially if you fresh grind as you go, but how cool to be able to make so much dough at once that you can freeze some and give gifts and still have a enough to actually eat! I made my first batch of 4 loaves and then made some buns/rolls with the leftover. It seemed to work just fine. I hope it holds out for a little while. I know now I will have to roll the buns larger though. :)

I LOVE that I can more easily get some more consistent fresh ground, whole grain bread and now buns on the table. More cancer healing goodness. That makes my heart sore. The kids were raving at how soft it all was. Now, I need prayer and advice for getting my kitchen rearranged to accommodate a somewhat organized, functional location/plan for use/storage. Let me know if you have any ideas at all.
My grinder system is pretty good right now. I store that down in the pantry at the bottom of the stairs, pull it out, cover my large deep freezer and use it as a table and grind away for the bread, extra for the kitchen freezer and a pre-mix for easy biscuits/ pancakes!
Thank Beth....all you girls, for thinking of me, it will be well used and beyond appreciated.

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
