Seeing..my beautiful Parmesan and garlic loaves turning gold on top in the easy, gas oven..I've baked a lot over the weekend, and it's such a wonderful feeling to know I can just turn a knob to do so..
Tasting..a bit of cinnamon tea-cake...another bit of easy baking fun!
Listening.. to the sound of gas-heat running through the house, and the soft, needy little snores of Luba on the couch.
Grateful...for a place to spend the coldest nights that required nothing from me to keep it warm. I love our home, but this winter Seth and I've decided to go back to our original plan - we hope to have a strawbale house built within the next five years. The yurt's insulation is good enough to keep us warm (even through -10 degree nights) but we want a house that doesn't need so much attention while it's keeping us warm.
Reading..cookbooks, I didn't think we'd be staying long, so I didn't bring much else, so I'm stuck with finding new recipes to try and love!
Hoping..for consistency in this new year, and for many blessings on all I know and love.
Studying.. I took Christmas off from study, tomorrow I'll be back to books and goals, and life in general - we're still on holiday today!
Working on.. a mess in the kitchen...hopefully Seth and Yarrow are planning to work hard at eating it all, because there's way too much for just me.
