Mystery Moment

My opinion is that I give rather silly clues for my Mystery Moments, so I think that perhaps as from now there shall be no more clues. That way we would have greater mysteries to resolve. What do you think, should I or should not give clues?

Can you guess what is in this photo?

Good luck!

And a beautiful life we live in, when it is possible, and when many other such things are possible, and not only possible, but done — done, see you! — under that sky there, every day.

Now that my food bucket list has finally been published, I’m officially back to blogging. I desperately needed a break to do other things. What did I do? Not much really. Did I play the piano non-stop? No. During my first few days I was away in Madrid. Then when I got back I got the flu. Summer flus are so inappropriate and boring.

I must give credit to Genie from Bunny Eats Design for giving me the idea of making my own food bucket list¬†after I saw hers. It’s a neat idea to put in writing things I want to do with regards to food. The idea is not to go crazy over achieving these points, but rather to be able to realise over time: great, I’ve done that!

Perhaps it’s cheating, but this list will be published with some¬†of the points¬†that I’ve already done. That’s why I¬†begin with some already crossed out. These are the¬†things that I think are wonderful, and that should I not have done them already, I would want to do have the¬†opportunity to do so. Other things, such as making jams, if someone would have said to me a couple of years ago that I’ll be cooking them now, I would not have believed them. What, me? Yet, I cannot imagine not making my own homemade jam now.

Here goes:
