Yummy!  :)

I want to make a piece of jewellery or something out of this tag -- any ideas anybody?

Yes, that is indeed snow you see there on the skylight in my kitchen... Snowed a bit this morning, then it all melted, and then it snowed a bit more again this afternoon.  Biking home this evening was okay as long as I stayed in the tyre tracks, but there's more snow forecast overnight and should be right around freezing when it's time to go to work tomorrow so I might be walking for a change!

Cheery winter food

One thing I miss in the winter is lovely fresh salads -- particularly anything with tomatoes and cucumbers...  So, a winter salad -- carrot and beetroot salad with ginger, and accompanied with some lovely honey smoked ham...

Taking pictures indoors under modern compact fluorescent bulbs is not the easiest thing -- this salad really looks much more jewel-toned in reality...  But it's dark out now, and I'm leaving the house in the morning to go to work before it gets light out, and then my salad will get eaten at lunchtime, so...  :)
