This was research - for science, you know.

I made mini-cakes!

I was testing out whether I could make little cakes in tiny canned fruit tins - I could! and they grew three sizes taller and had poofy domed tops. I also wanted to try making pineapple flowers, and marshmallow fondant.
The pineapple flowers were delicious, and the marshmallow fondant was far too sweet (next time I'm going to try mixing some rice flour into it) but they both pleased me!

dusty day, happy evening

I love showers. The warm water cascading over me, it feels so nurturing and delicious and clean and cosy. I never want to get out.

New view from the Throne

Joanna Lumley

I've fallen in love with Joanna Lumley, as, it appears, has everyone else she encountered in her trip to view the northern lights. Here she is talking about Bond:


I love getting RSVPs. I love the sweet notes they come with. I love how someone declared, "let the wild rumpus begin!" I love how someone RSVP'd for Ziggy Stardust, twice:)

nature and bad girls, both powerful

I love this dance routine. I heard the song on the radio, so I found it again this morning and it brought a big smile to my face:

A sprig of rosemary that I tucked into a decorative underplanting sprouted! I never would have expected that.

Strange, the things I find blessings.

The edge of my laptop is the perfect scratching surface for my dry and itchy hands. It is an intense pleasure and relief. So happy to have found it.
