It has been snowing heavily all day. So of course the spring feelings in my previous post turned out to be premature. I should have known, as this really is the norm in February, not the green grass and the spring in my (and the hen´s) step.
So what does one do to cheer oneself up on a snowy February day, when one really would rather have anything else but snow...? Baking some buns came to mind. So buns it is.
There really is hardly anything more comforting than the lovely scent of freshly baked buns in the air. Closely followed by a hot cup of tea, of course.
The buns (not all of them, but a fair few...) were enjoyed with homemade currant jam (black and red combined, from bushes in my garden). Comfort food fit for a queen ;-)
And now (seeing my bed is still unmade from last night, and the snow does not look like it is going to stop anytime soon) I feel like going under the covers again. Maybe it is as good a place as any to wait till the grass is green again and there is birdsong in the air...
What do you do to cheer yourself up on a snow day?
