Sometimes I just don’t feel like talking. Am I the only one who gets like that? I’ve been busy busy busy the last few weeks, and I’m always happy when I have something to share here, but I just didn’t have it in me to actually type an entry. It’s not that I’ve been particularly down or anything, I was just feeling quiet, I guess. I was just looking at the pictures on my camera, and realized that I have a few that I’ve been meaning to post. I also realized that I have more pictures that I want to be sure and take before I totally forget or in some cases miss out all together. Like the irises that are blooming right now. We have a pretty pink one and some white and yellow and purple. They are so huge and ruffle-y and just frothy. Back to the subject at hand…
I made a bread pudding:
I can’t say that bread pudding is a favorite dessert, but every now and then it just sounds good. I used a loaf of brioche to make this one. It wasn’t bad for my first attempt. I think next time I will have a little less bread and a little more pudding.
I took a day off to do nothing. I just wanted to do nothing at all and not feel guilty about it. When I got up that morning, this was waiting for me in the kitchen:
Tulips and bagels and lox and cream cheese. A book full of beautiful tulip photographs and a very cute chocolate cake. Mr. Lucy is one of the most generous people I know. He was forgiven for the sink full of dirty dishes for the day. He is also very smart sometimes.
I tried to take some dog pictures, I think you can see that it is very very difficult for Bear to sit still. Oh the effort!
And one last picture of the lilacs:
We had so many this year, but they are nearly all faded now. I could smell them every night when I pulled into the driveway, it was heavenly!
Next time, here at Hey Lucy: the Irises, books, knitted washcloths and what every household should have, a cable knit hot water bottle cover, of course!
