I'm in love with cross-country skiing - it is fabulous fun (various muscles are momentarily disagreeing, but the brain trumps those, thank you), out in utterly beautiful snow, mostly away from other people and so only disturbed by the sound of snow sighing from the trees and the hush of my skis on the snow.

No, I'm not very good at it, but I don't care - I am getting better, but the main thing is it's just immense fun. Roll on the next vacation now ... that's the only drawback, I've fallen in love with a sport that it is basically impossible to do anywhere close to home.

PS: yes, the armchairs did arrive, eventually (see previous post). Books acquired recently - lost track. Currently reading: Nigel Slater's Eating for England.

Reading:
Home to Big Stone Gap - Adriana Trigiani - chick lit version of Lake Wobegon, or something in that area. Undemanding, just slightly quirky
Jeeves Omnibus Vol.1 - still on the Wodehouse kick

Bought:
None - no books, anyway. Have acquired paint for the house redecorating that will happen over the Easter weekend; white walls = repaint every couple of years.

Cooked:
Pumpkin Muffins
Parsnip pancakes
Black bean & sweet potato stew
Roast rhubarb

One of my vague intentions, now that the play is over, is to try and cook a bit more - all sorts of reasons for this, but mostly because I like cooking, but tend to forget that in the middle of crazybusy. Maybe if I write it down, I'll remember. Anyway, today's batches worked really well - the muffins (from Vegan With A Vengeance by Isa Chandra) are fab, and will be breakfast for a few days. There's enough stew left over to have with something tomorrow night (maybe in a wrap?). The rhubarb was roasted because I was too lazy to turn it into crumble, but it works (Nigel Slater's idea - too simple to call it a recipe - so that's not surprising) and is very good with vanilla soy-ice cream
