Oolong and Some Faces: A Couch Adventure
We are expecting another week of snow. The weather is predicting several snow falls of another 12-16 inches total. I am going to have to stock up on hot chocolate and marshmallows. I have enjoyed staying home and am looking forward to another week of being homebound. Being home and trying not to eat all the baking has been a struggle but I find no matter how hard I try to stop I can’t. I love baking.
This Sourdough Lemon Cake with Glaze is SOO delicious. I made two loaves this week and each loaf was gone in a day. One tip, if you make this, make sure that you use fresh lemons. It makes all the difference.
And I made two loaves of white bread.
More of what I worked on this week.
I decided to start sketching my grandparents wedding portrait. They met and were married during WWII. A few week ago my grandmother celebrated her 100th birthday. Sadly, I was unable to make it to her party but I did get a chance to video chat with her.
I am going to give this another try since the transfer left lines and I was unable to erase them.
Another In-Progress of my daughter.
I am struggling to work on this new paper that I purchased. I am used to working on smooth paper. This one has a slight tooth to it. I am slowly getting acclimated to it.
I am joining the T day ladies hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today was sent to me by Natural Puerh. It is a Dahongpao, a Wuyi rock (oolong) tea. This tea had a fragrant floral aroma and I thought it was pleasant tasting. I am not a huge fan of black teas as my sensitive digestive system doesn’t like them but this one wasn’t bad. I think next time I will try it again with a lower steeping temperature to see if that makes it more flavorful. I’ll let you know what I think.
Happy Tea Day,
