I do a lot of things with certain intentions.  I would admit that half of the time those intentions never happen.

I buy a design magazine to help me pick out new colors for my decor.  Walls are still white.

I buy piles and piles of yarn to learn to knit.  Still in the original bag with the receipt.

I buy paints and canvases but everything dries out before ever being opened.

I order packets and packets of heirloom seeds to start in the spring.  These I have given away.

And in the case  of these bread I bake it to make it into french toast.  Five thick slices taste tested later and the french toast is a write off.  But as my good friend Christina over at Strawberries for Supper says ” That sounds like the normal serving size of brioche.” So it’s all good.  And she’s a smart lady! Check her out!
