Ribbon and Bread
Life certainly feels full these days. There's been lots of planning, lots of daydreaming, and lots of gathering. Jake and I were both sort of feeling a mid-winter funk, but it seems to have lifted as of late. Not sure why... maybe just knowing the snowy days will soon have to give way to Spring. I'm feeling very positive about many things and hoping a hell of a lot. We had a beautiful day today on our weekly grocery expedition. I love how small VT always feel, as if you know everyone in the whole state. I dragged Jake around downtown and found a few odds and ends... some pretty yellow napkins and that delightful aqua ribbon pictured above and the fun little trivet you see below. I have a little coriander plant planted in there that has not yet grown to see the sun.
And this evening, after enjoying a terrific dinner of pasta and homemade tomato sauce with ukulele music, I looked around our surroundings and felt very grateful for all the color in our life. Lots of plants, brightly colored rooms, silly paintings, lovely people and kitties to share it with. Yes, I do feel very hopeful these days. Sometimes you just have to turn your head around and the world looks a whole lot different than it did the day before.
And here is something awesome that I wanted to share with you before I go watch a detective show with Jake, Septembear's Rosemary Bread. I baked it the other day, and it is very delicious, and not very difficult, as far as bread making goes. You can find the recipe here. Enjoy!
