Zero degrees. Ten inches of snow. Everyone around me grumbles about the winter, but I'm happy as a bear in her den, a bird in her nest, a bee in her hive.
I baked gluten-free, low-fat banana cake with a vanilla sugar drizzle.
I cooked pan-roasted halibut with sauteed spinach, cauliflower-potato puree and a lemon tarragon sauce avec roasted pecans. (Try saying that ten times fast.)
I happily did the laundry. (Yes. I said happily. Tide smells nice.) I made sketches and added a whole slew of virtual pins to my Pinterest boards, which make me worked up and inspired for some new framed ceramic work. (Even though I saaaiiiidddd I was taking a break....)
I started a photo blog on Tumblr. AND wrote three chapters. (Small Victory!) I helped older son with mid-term studying and cuddled younger son for longer than usual at bedtime. Also: I've drunk an average of five cups of tea per day: English Breakfast, Super Antioxidant, Chamomile, Hibiscus and Decaf Green, though not necessarily in that order.
Being inside when it's unnecessary and unwise to be outside makes me feel tucked in and like our house is a crockpot of creativity, documentaries, good food and beehive mentality.
Stay warm, muffins! xo Rae
