Weekly Journal #27

Whew, the crazy Christmas week is over! I only worked on Monday and Tuesday so it was a pretty good vacation. 

It has still been ridiculously warm here; over 70 degrees some days!  That means a lot of fog, most days you couldn't even see the tops of the buildings downtown. I took this photo on Tuesday when Steven and I walked to get lunch at Subway. It's so fun that we're both working downtown now.

I baked some Christmas eve baguettes. My third attempt. I think I am getting better!

I got some cute stuff for Christmas including a cat apron, cat socks, film, and minecraft buddies.

Since it has been so dang warm, I have been playing around in the garden and I dug up two new bonsais. I am excited to trim them up in a few months.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas week!  I love Christmas but I am looking forward to everything getting back to normal, and to get all this Christmas junk food eaten up so I can start being healthy again.

  3. That first photo with the fog is way too beautiful! Those baguettes look pretty good--bread is fairy difficult to bake sometimes, isn't it?! Hope you have a seriously wonderful new years.:D

    1. Thanks! Bread sounds like a hard thing to bake, but really it's not any harder than other baked goods! Just takes a while waiting for it to rise.

  7. Whew,hat did feel like a crazy Christmas week, I feel like it just blew by. I hope you had a lovely Christmas, I'm so belated in wishing you a merry Christmas! I love your photos, that first one with the fog is crazy, it's so thick. Your bread also looks like its coming out great, bread can be really fussy sometimes. :P I just bake sticky bread in my dutch oven now, it's so easy and it gets the best crust.

  8. After much anticipation, Christmas always seems to just seems to fly by. Glad you had time to snap a few photos to remember some nice moments. That warm foggy weather was great, I think I prefer it too this awful cold.
