A good day to bake bread! It's cold and sunny and since the wind wasn't too bad we had a good walk with the dog this morning. He doesn't seem to notice how cold it is at all.
This bread recipe comes from a 30 year old cookbook, but it's the same recipe that my Finnish grandmother made all the time. Fresh bread would be waiting for us when we got up in the morning (and we were early risers!) I would certainly love to know her now and show her all the things that I do that she spent her life doing - sewing, quilting, preserving.
My passion fruit vine is beside a cold window that gets lots of light. But it still surprises me when it blooms. Only for a day or so, but still a lovely burst of colour.
