RANDOM STUFF THAT MADE ME SMILE

Standing in my garden eating tomatoes right off the vine.

Washing my car under the full shade of trees I helped plant years ago.

Riding my bike this morning by fragrant hay fields.

Finally seeing success in my sourdough bread. One-loaf-at-a-time.

This one must have been good.  Three slices were gone before I could get a photo after it cooled.  It was made without yeast, only using my sourdough starter for leavening.  WooHoo!

Bread success! One loaf at a time- I'll bet that lasted about 12 minutes! Your tomatoes look like candy!

I love a field full of baled or rolled hay. It's always picture perfect.
Congrats on the bread! Looks like it has a nice texture. That was something I could never master with my sourdough.

Oh, the cruelty of showing a celiac like me that gorgeous loaf of bread! That looks SO good!

You are so right! It really is the small stuff that makes us happy. And routine...I enjoy routine. Now if I can get rid of the clutter and junk I think I really NEED to save...well, I'll be making good headway!

Happy times - contentment in the small things - one can never underestimate satisfied taste buds and and a shiny car!

That bread looks amazing! Oh, for a slice with butter and my sister-in-law's apricot jam ... yumm. So what am I doing wrong - my tomatoes are teeeeeny - they literally do not grow bigger than a bead - but they are still sweet. Yours look SO good, beautiful and fat and red.
