After three days of cooking and cleaning, friends and family, today was my "free" day, which means I was free to do laundry, pick up dog poop, and otherwise prepare for the coming work week. But I also made time for baking bread. Some people might not consider that a fun thing to do, but I find hand kneading yeasty dough to be very relaxing. And then there is the end result - a delicious accompaniment to the last of the Caramelized Cabbage soup.
I have had visitors to the window feeder, mostly chickadees (as below) but also nuthatches and sparrows. I may replace the oil seed with something like millet, because the larger seed doesn't fall into the feeding cups very well.
Now I am going to enjoy a blaze in the fireplace on this chilly night.
