Soaking up some sun
There was a time (years ago) when baking bread once a week was a thing I enjoyed... But now when I have four hungry wolves a load of three breads last two, maybe three days if I'm lucky... So baking bread have gone from a relaxing joy to a need I have to do whether I like it or not.
Yesterday the last end of the last bread went with the kids as their school lunch, so I had to make a dough after I had sent them off to school. I had planed to make a second dough, but the weather got so great so Endre and I headed out instead :) I guess I have to save money so we can buy a stove that has hot air so I can bake six bread at once.
We've had degrees below 0 during the night and in the morning the last couple of days. Yesterday we had -5 C in the morning. The sun is warming, but Endre still need to wear wool underneath his rainsuit.
I'm soaking up the sun (and are geting freckles) while I knit or read a book :)
The knitting is a pair of Lepidoptera Mitt and the book is "The hunt for Atlantis" - very exciting!
Last weekend we had a big snowfall, so the world is again covered in white with not a track to be seen. Only my own footprints after I went looking for pussy willows ;)
I only found one little willow tree with pussy willow on, the moose have eaten all the tops of the others...
