Today is a quiet day, a day when nothing really needs to be done.
Even though I'm on sick leave there always seems to be something pressing
- chores, doctor's appointments, house renovations etc. But not today.
Nature seems to agree. Looking out over the lake and trees everything is
completely still. (Except for all the happy spring birds who are going crazy.)
Yesterday I found out that I will get a little money from the state.
Not enough to live on but at least to put petrol in my car, shoes on my feet,
flowers on the patio and red wine in my hand. I am very lucky to have
a partner who takes care of the bills while I'm trying to get better.
However, this means I probably won't be allowed to leave the country
for a while. So any visits to see blog friends will have to wait even longer :(
It's been a while since I documented and posted about my baking or cooking.
There's a reason for this. When the pipe in the wall broke I stalled getting it repaired.
Then our stove crapped out, and we basically stopped using the kitchen all together.
Then other things got in the way, like my man being sick, changing windows
in the house and having to change storage facilities for all the merch from my store.
The only thing working now is the oven and we've been doing dishes in the shower...
My man signed his contract and is starting the new job in 2-3 months.
His work will entail traveling to different corners of the world semi regularly
and I might be joining him sometimes, depending on my future situation.
It will be hard for me to leave my kitties in the care of someone else
(the longest stretch I have ever been away from them is 4 days in 12 years)
but I'm looking forward to traveling again. I used to be quite the nomad.
