It's amazing how greatly my mood can be improved by finding one small, pale yellow freesia growing in a patch of weeds near the letterbox. So, thank you tiny thing, for braving the spring rain and wind.
Keira was given a sourdough 'bug' to make Herman the German Friendship Cake. Have you made one of these before? It's kind of like a chain letter, in the form of cake batter. Taking care of the mixture and following the 10-day recipe almost became an obsession for K and I, until finally baking it on the weekend with spices and apple. It was very nice. And now she's since been given two more portions from different friends. It's the never ending cake!
