I'm feeling a bit out of touch as I haven't been commenting much lately nor have I posted in the past week. But my days are long and busy since the summervacation. I've been getting up early to do my daily work-out. (Still not bendy enough, but I'm definitely improving!)
Work has been a bit crazy and although I still have a job I have no idea for how long, since my boss still hasn't approached that issue since the decision from the unemployment agency forbidding him to fire me. It's been two months now and I don't know where I stand. It's frustrating and I can tell it's getting to me because I have stupid dreams and I was never troubled during sleep before. *grumble*
But! This weekend was pretty good. I made something for the Reverse Bang and managed to send it in for an early bird admission, which means I can hopefully make another piece of artwork to prompt (I'm waiting for confirmation). I can't tell you what I made yet, but I did try a new technique again and I quite enjoyed the process, so at least fun was had:)
In between fiddling with the SPN-guys I also continued work on Project guestroom. I build a new bookcase, moved old furniture around and it's starting to look like a library for real. Well, the books are still all piled up on the bed, but I have no visitors planned for the near future, so I have time to sort them out:)
Also! I made croissants! I got one of those cans with ready made dough. Had to bake them in two rounds, because I have a tiny oven, but it totally worked.
step 1: cover tray with bakingpaper (aluminum foil was also allowed, but this felt like proper baking:)
step 2: when you peel off the cardboard cover, the can *pops* open, it's like a party-favour! I also almost teared the instructions apart, oops.
step 3: but I had studied the tiny illustrations before hand, so I knew what to do. I didn't have a brush to put the egg on though, so I used my fingers. (I know the rolls are a bit crooked, but this was only my first batch, scroll on)
In the oven (200C for 15 minutes). I hope I didn't put them too close together. How big will they be in the end? Eep.
Holy C! Look at that: perfect croissants! Notice how fancy I rolled the second batch? That turned out great too \o/ I ROCK.
I had two with chocolate paste, two with raspberry jam and two with strawberry jam. Also had warm milk and honey.
It was a good day:)
I hope to be more actively involved in my flist and on my other digital networks, but I have another busy week ahead, not only at work, but I'm also socializing with family and the neighbour.
Djeebus, I'm such a grown up.
