A very happy birthday

I got up early and baked two loaves of bread. One was made of white spelt flour and for the other I used whole-grain spelt flour, walnuts and cranberries. I baked them both in my new convection oven in half less time and the whole house smelled of freshly baked bread. Now I can’t decide which one tastes better… 🙂

This is a photo of my birthday/Easter table, with fresh sunflower bouquet I picked at the nearby organic farm, sunflower painting on the wall behind, painted by Singapore painter Sri Rajes.

When I first opened the door – on the way out of my bedroom, I found the following note hanging on my door knob:

And finally, here’s Chiranian Ally, as sweet as only she can be… 🙂

Anyway, I’ve been having some really wonderful days, filled with many of my favorite people, good food, dancing and laughter and I feel soooooooo Blessed…

    I would like you to taste my bread- if only I could figure out the best way to mail it. I love to eat it while it’s fresh, still warm – and every day after. Since I’m the only one eating it in this house, most of the time a loaf lasts me a long time. However, spelt bread crumbles a lot more than wheat bread.

Happy Birthday dear friend. My daughter’s birthday was on April 24. I like the sunflowers. I plant them but they are deer food in Michigan. Way to go Eric, how nice was that!
