Lenten buns

It's the season for Lenten buns here. We have to do something to keep the good mood during the dark months. A Lenten bun is a wheat bun cut in half with almond paste and whipped cream, and powdered sugar on top. Very tasty. You can buy them in the grocery stores and bakeries, but I have made my own (meaning I bought the individual ingredients and put it together).

Speaking of dark, it really is. February is a difficult month to get through. The weather is miserable, with high winds and snowflakes that feels like spikes. I went home early today because of the storm warnings. We'll see how it is tomorrow. If the trains don't run, I might stay at home. The alternative is to call my boss, so that she can pick me up. My back hasn't been that well lately. Monday morning I woke up with a too familiar pain in the area of my right hip. It's the usual problem. I have made an appointment at the chiropractor's.

The article for the Historical society publication is finished and handed in to the editor. An entire week before deadline! Yes, it's amazing.
