We woke up to sunshine and blue skies today, with just a hint of an autumnal nip in the air…. a perfect day for doing a few garden garden jobs and working on a few projects here at home. This lovely Speckled Wood butterfly was flitting about in the garden while we were out tidying things up.
Inside, I delighted myself by making a perfect cake — two layers of high protein, gluten-free chocolate goodness iced with coffee buttercream. I’m not usually a cake baker, but I’m learning to cook with coconut flour, and I’m finding it incredibly satisfying to have a few really good grain-and-nut-free go-to recipes, and this one is definitely a winner! I then sat out in the sunny conservatory and worked on my teddy bear project. I finished my fourth bear today, which I’ll show you in due course. The more I work on these little critters, the more they seem like a really significant undertaking.
