So, have you ever seen a murmuration before? If not, or if you’re simply wondering what a murmuration is, check out this video:
I realize it’s been ages since I last post. I want to thank all my friends, family and acquaintances for your kind thoughts after I shared about the recent death of our dear Austin, so soon after Pearl’s death as well (but to us they were family members too). It’s still difficult to even bring up the topic or talk about them so I’m going to move on here as well.
The photos are a silent way of sharing what I’ve been doing lately.
Click for the recipe for the Plum Kuchen — I’ve made it 3 times and it’s fantastic! I also made it once substituting fresh peaches. If you’re a fan of the much lower levels of sugar used in genuine German Kuchen, then you’re sure to like this recipe. But if you prefer your desserts much sweeter then check out a few of my other favourites on Pinterest.
And my third pair of socks have been done for a while and I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. For the knitters, check out my project page at Ravelry for details.
Since this is such a voiceless post, I thought I’d leave you with a few of my favourite quotes of late:
“I don’t know what they are called, the spaces between seconds…” — Salvador Plascencia
“In the sweetness of friendship; let there be laughter and the sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.” –Kahlil Gibran
“There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.” — Shel Silverstein
“Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever.” –Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See
“But it is not bravery; I have no choice. I wake up and live my life. Don’t you do the same?” —Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See
