It’s Monday (February 6, 2023)

Oof I woke up today just after 5. So everything feels very slow moving right now because I have a headache. Hopefully it will go away. Meanwhile, I’ll just quickly put up some photos…

Some things last week:

Made some granola yesterday. Added sliced almonds, coconut chips, chopped apricots, and raisins.
The husband also hinted that I should make the walnut bread he likes. So here it is. I need to find a new recipe though. Either that or try proofing it overnight. It tastes fine but I think the crumb/texture can be improved.
We needed to head to the South Bay to pick up something, so I figured might as well go to Super Duper Burger. Love the food there, even their lemonade is so tasty (and not too sweet). The burgers are always well cooked too.
Started on a new crochet project. First time trying this brand of cotton yarn. Cotton yarn is hard to work with! It makes my fingers tire more easily…

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


  1. I have Anne of Greenville sitting on a shelf beside me. Now that I have finally finished reading for the Cybils, I can get back choosing what I want to read! Have a fabulous reading week.


  2. I’m a bit late reading this post, but this week I read Admiring Silence by Abdulrazak Gurnah an author originally from Zanzibar now based in the UK. The novel is about a man from Zanzibar who comes to England to study and stays, is in a relationship with an English woman and they have a child. It’s a brilliant observation of their cross cultural relationship and how his silences have a significant effect. It’s really great and quite funny in parts. One I’m definitely going to read more of, I’m told By the Sea is also very good.


  3. I left some flapjacks in the oven for too long and I suggested the students turn it into granola instead. Your granola looks less dry and crunchy than my flapjack/granola.
