Wednesday 15th was the first real spring day. Plus 9 degrees Celsius. Yay 😀 Roads and sidewalks are bare from snow. Still snow in our backyard. But it will disappear quickly enough as it was also warm yesterday, 8 C, and raining in the night. Best time of the year.
My husband’s painting of Jacky in oil 😀 Both paint and brushes were old, dry and no good 😦 But still, pretty nice, eh ? 😉

After many cloudy days with snow, sleet and rain it yesterday was a wonderful sunny day. And, finally daylight at about 6 pm when Canelo and I take our evening walk. We stopped down by the lake to enjoy the scenery at sunset. It was so nice. No wind, no planes, no sounds of traffic. A surprisingly quiet moment. Then, in the distance, I thought I saw a kite skier. Yes, it really, truly was one. How was it possible without any wind. I don’t know but he was going pretty fast back and forth many times. Either he was huffing and puffing a lot or there was just enough of a wind at where he was. I know, It’s hard to see him in my picture. But’ he is there 🙂
I have been down with a flue for a bit more than a week. So I was not sure would I have the energy to bake any Shrove buns. But, somehow I managed to make some after all.
Finally I managed to make meringues that were not chewy, too dark, or went into a thousand pieces as soon as you touched them 🙂 The meringue was perfect but the roses did not look like the roses in the Pirkka magazine. Check who photobombed my last two pictures 😉 Good he didn’t touch them 😀 I need to stop baking. Bad for my weight 😦
