two kinds of cookies and some thoughts


The weekend was long and rather glorious, lots of sun, summerish weather, it involved garden visits, fika moments, good food, flower shopping, window shopping (I do have plans for this year's tax refund), a bit of work and oh, and I finally, finally sold the old, supersized desk that I inherited from my father. The garden shed is now liberatingly somewhat airy and someone else will have lots of good use with that imposing, too large desk.

You know the liberating feeling of getting rid of old stuff, having more space, actually getting paid for that old stuff and thinking surely there must more old stuff I can sell? Oh I got it.

A befitting round off to the lovely weekend was a bit of baking. I made two types of cookies - again from the sweet cakes bakebook - one lemon/coconut, one chocolate sunflower/pumpkinseed. Admittedly not sure I'll make them again since they turned out a bit dry and flavourless, plus I rarely think the amount of work put into tiny cookies are worth the end result. There are so much more rewarding things to bake, I think.


But they look cute. And taste alright, if not spectacular. Plus have the bobbaloo stamp of approval, so they can't be all bad.

So, how did you spend the lovely long Ascension weekend?
Sun basking, relaxing, cookie-baking or something completely different but no less grand?
