Sunday. It is rainy and gloomy today. Thunderstorms moving in. Yesterday, sun was promised by the weather forecast, but it only peeked in a handful of times. Today, it will not make an appearance at all. These are the days to stay in, stay low, and bake or cook an elaborate dish, for which there is never time on an average work day. A day, when nothing needs to be achieved or get done, a day to let life’s muse kiss me, and take and have time for frivolous endeavors. Such as reading cookbooks. Or learn how to program computer games.
Or bake mini berry muffins.
