Let´s look at this picture and pretend it´s spring. Deal? Thought so. I grabbed this collection of spring plants on a recent visit to Ikea (so cheap and later the bulbs go in the garden, so win win!) and I guess they´ll sort of kind of be my February bough? I always think a particular blog series could be *so much fun* and then life happens? Sigh.
This picture is such a classic. Marlene is grumpy and Ludwig is wary. Our redhead doesn´t really have such an easy life with his feline siblings. It´s funny how when we first adopted Ludwig we thought he would torment the cats but it turned out to be just the other way around? Except for Emma. Emma loves Ludwig and vice versa.
Speaking of Marlene, here´s another picture of her. I realized I took maybe four pictures of Marlene last year, tops. And I feel awful about it so I promise to do better in 2016. The thing about Marlene is that she is mostly sleeping all day every day (she is an old lady after all) and I have a ton of pictures of Marlene sleeping, so I never bother... but I should! I shall! I love you my grumpy old diva! I would love you even more if you stopped peeing on the dining room rug!
Lastly, this bread. I made it twice the past few weeks and it´s my new favorite. So gorgeous to look at and so very tasty. It´s too large for any of my fermentation baskets so I use my largest colander which leaves those adorable dots on the surface. Yup, I am not ashamed to say that these are the things that make me happy.
