A Little Break From Iceland: DIY Bread and Hair

I let this rustic bread rise overnight, and baked it this morning. The secret ingredient is a half a cup of red wine mixed into the dough. It gave the bread a bit more depth in flavour and made it more savoury. This time, for once, I didn’t forget the salt!

It made a very arty sandwich for the husband.

I’m always making Tuscan-style bread by accident, with no salt. It’s really good, but it doesn’t taste quite right sometimes as toast.

I love making bread. It’s nice to have a big kitchen with lots of equipment to do it in. Being unemployed at the moment makes it so that I have loads of time on my hands, for bread making and hair styling.

My hair is actually long enough to do things to now, and it’s great!

This kitty lives in our neighbourhood. He wanted to drink the stagnant water that’s been accumulated over a year, with god knows what in it. I couldn’t let that happen, even though he’d probably have been fine.

I put out a bowl of fresh water for him, and he meowed at me thinking I had food. In fact, there is no meat in the whole house at the moment. Water will just have to do!
