Burn Savers

Look at these awesome burn savers!

Such a great idea and product. A very simple silicone fix for people like me, who reach in and get their hands, wrists and forearms caught on the metal oven racks. I no longer have to answer probing questions about 'life at home' when I have a medical check-up! 😄

And, we found a use for the off-cuts, that now seem custom designed!

Black Beauty

I've been finding it hard to get good portraits of this all black kitty. She's sleek and glossy, as well as being very sweet and talkative, and hopelessly devoted to her 'serf,' but I kept finding that the photos I took didn't do her beauty justice.

I've been practicing, and kept trying, and have started feeling better now about capturing some of her allure.

This cute little panther is not so jet black when you get up close and personal, though it's hard to believe. This is her deer-caught-in-the-headlights look:

The darkness of her fur hides her form and details in the wrong light, and makes her look blank-faced and expressionless.

She's very playful, and has taken to thinking this basket is a good hiding place from which to launch mock attacks!

Baking High

I was thrilled with the outcome of my latest bread-making attempt - a rosemary parmesan artisan loaf, to accompany my potato soup.

In fact, without realizing it until it was brought to my attention, I was positively giddy with the result, chatting and giggling like I was half-baked myself!

What a lovely thing to happen from such a simple activity! Who would ever have foreseen that bread making could be so rewarding?

The outer crust! Oh man, to die for! I could happily overeat on this simple staple. I think I'm going to have to sue The Great British Baking Show for my weight gain!
