One does not get any younger these days, but it is inner values that count. 😀

Saturdays are reserved for cleaning, in our home. Meaning we stuff our ears with audio materials of our choice and do the work, each their own. I tend to listen to French translations of good books and I absolutely adore these moments. In the afternoon, we stop laboriously ignoring each other and prepare some food instead.
- So, should I make a chocolate cake, a fruit cake or a nut cake?
- Yes what?
- All of them.
(In the end it turned out sometimes more is definitely more. Like: a dates-butter-cocoa-cranberries-tahini with pekmez-coconut-wholemeal cake. With perfect taste. *sigh indeed*)
It has always been important to me to live in an area where a walk is always possible. To have an enchanting forest so near is simply wonderful.
Last week, I took two days off: Been studying for my criminal law exam these days and of course loving it, even though I spend much time reading about murder and slaughter.
Might be the right time to learn about this shit. (<- black humor).
My first reaction to Michael Pollan’s Cooked was “BLEURGHHHH”!!!!?!!!!
Why on earth did I keep on reading the book even though the first part is all about roasting pigs, I don’t know. I still remember how much I hated the pictures this chapter invokes.
But then … my suffering paid off.
First, I induced some of our favorite veggies to ferment and while waiting for the results, I bought and used a grain mill.
I don’t understand why I hadn’t done it much earlier … the bread is delicious and it certainly makes fun to mill one’s wheat (or rye or …).
I guess admitting I am a Schwarzwald junkie simply makes me an average middle-aged person (Wow, she likes the Black Forest, what a surprise).
(Now, admitting to myself people from the Black Forest probably care less about me than I am currently aware of is a part of my real life checking routine. As long as I work, earn and retain my health, I get to admire the landscape. So I will. Happily.)
