I made my very first Pasha. May also be spelled Paskha and Pascha. It’s a traditional Russian Easter dish made from quark (curd cheese). Also often served in Finland. It was delicious. The recipe I used really was a sugar/fat bomb. Today I found a light version of the pasha. So, if I’m going to make one next Easter it definitely will be a light one.
In the evenings in order to wind down I often listen to music and do free online puzzles. Here are two. The other one, with the basket, I did the night before and the other one, with the colorful wig, I did last night. I think both are 300 pieces. I checked, the basket is 250 pcs. The wig 300.
I hope you all had a nice Easter. The weather here has been great. Warm and sunny. Finally our garden is free from snow. Time for some gardening.
Waiting for the kitten to come home seems long. Still about four weeks before we get him. We are talking about him every day. My husband suggests a daily Skype video conversation with him so he could see us and hear our voices. Meanwhile I watch cute kitty video clips and solve cute kitty online (300 piece) jigsaw puzzles.
I hope you all had a great New Year’s celebrating yesterday. This is how I spent my new year’s eve. In the beginning of the evening I was watching TV. Among other I watched the fireworks in Hong Kong at Victoria Harbour live on BBC. Even if I’m not a big fan of fireworks I must say it was spectacular. BBC showed it for, I think, 6-7 minutes. I just googled more about the fire works and it says it last for about 25-30 minutes. My dog would have hated it. He even hates the few fireworks seen and heard around here where we live.
Anyway, when I got tired of watching TV I decided to do some jigsaw puzzles online. I got inspired by reading a blog friend’s posting about her and her family doing a 1000 pieces puzzle, not a online one.
Wednesday night I puzzled online for the first time. Wow, how many beautiful pictures there are and different categories to choose from. Also you can choose what style you want, a classic, elegent plus many more.I happened to find a puzzle with the O’Connell street, Dublin view. As I have visited Dublin (in 1995) and been walking the street it was clear that I’d choose it. You can choose how many cuts you want so for the O’Connell I chose 150 pieces. Yesterday I was looking for more familiar views and found this one. The Old Town Square in Prague. I think I was there in either in 1999 or 2000. This time I chose a cut for 200 pieces. My husband thinks it’s a waste of time. Maybe my he is afraid I will get addicted ! Well, I find it relaxing and listen to music at the same time. I already looked for more street views from other countries I have visited I want to do. Maybe for my next one I will choose to have one in 300 cuts !
Just one more bit . . .
