Although I intended to post on Thursday mornings, I had a lovely reason not to this morning. Friends of mine and my boyfriend were over for breakfast! One of them had brought me a half a loaf of bread the day before, and I was able to whip up a not-so-boozy version of this delightful creation. I took no pictures, didn't worry about the composition, simply tossed it into the oven at 9:30am and 25 minutes later, pulled out a puffy, fragrant dish that was consumed enthusiastically. Cheerful conversation, orange juice and a happy, lazy hour later, all of us were fed and heading off to start (in one case continue) our days. We need more of these mornings.
The reason I was able to do this was my incredible luck this semester. Two days of the week, my earliest class begins at 11:20am. Two other days, my only class begins at 3:50pm. Fridays I have completely class-free (although not commitment-free, ahem, robotics and research). My day ends rather late, but when I'm leaving the apartment at 11:00am most days, I simply breathe a sigh of gratefulness that it's not another semester laden with 8:30, 8:20, 8:05am classes.
Postscript: May I add a note to say how stunningly beautiful the weather was today? Blue skies, light breeze, warm enough to skip the second coat, and maybe the first. It's uncannily spring!
