Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


A little more light

Today is 5th January - a day to celebrate as the evenings start to feel lighter - actually be lighter.

So I am going to make a sun cake - a dark fruit filled cake, cooked slowly, filling the house with the scent of warming spices, dried fruit and apple.
Then later, we'll take the still warm cake for a bit of a walk, find a view, open the flask and look at the view and quietly relish the coming of spring.


  1. Ah lovely. I can smell the cake.x

  2. The cakes sounds wonderful

  3. Yes, the daylight is increasing! It seems to me that I'm noticing that its arrival is earlier than in previous years.... No logical explanation for this!

  4. I had never heard of sun cake before, but it looks delicious!

  5. Sounds wonderful, warm cake & hot tea with a splendid view thrown in. Thank you, take care & huggles.

  6. It feels good to know the daylight hours are getting longer. Much more useful for walking! The cake looks very morish. :)

  7. It's definitely getting lighter. And no better way to celebrate than with cake :)

  8. That sounds a nice cake.
    We too were out with flask and eatable treat on Sunday, the sun came out which was nice too

  9. Oh yum . . . what I wouldn't give for a slice of that right now :-(
