I’m officially home for the whole winter/spring semester and it’s kinda weird. But also really great, I’m not going to lie. I’m an intern at a zoo and it’s lots of fun, then I have a lot of free time that I use for things like baking, cooking, taking my dog on long walks, hikes, running on the treadmill, and random other things – like writing blog posts! I’m hoping to do a lot of photography this semester just because I can. I took my dog to a boardwalk thingy and took my camera. It was really nice.
Not everything is pretty in the dead of winter in Boston here, so photography can get a little tricky. However, a good photographer should be able to take photographs at any time of the year, so I’m determined to still get good photos. I think that went pretty well at the boardwalk. The hike with my dog was good, too. That’s where I took the Boston skyline photo.
Isn’t he just the cutest? Did you know there are doggie DNA tests? I kind of want to get one for Franklin, but they’re really expensive. We just tell people he’s part American Foxhound and part Pitbull Terrier. He probably has other breeds mixed in there as well, like maybe Boxer. But, we’re not sure. He’s my first rescue and he’s a great dog.
Anyone baking anything interesting recently? I’m excited to make Valentine’s Day themed desserts, which is coming up quickly. I also made two loaves of bread recently. One was just a white bread to warm up back into bread baking and the other is called Vermont Oatmeal Honey Whole Wheat Bread. It’s absolutely delicious. I absolutely love making homemade bread. The process itself is fun and interactive and the product is delicious. Plus, it’s more ‘useful’ per se than cookies, which can’t be made into a meal, unlike bread.
