Sunday morning I felt these ominous rumblings of a cold, so I hastily made myself lots of cups of ginger chair using a mix and match of these lovely ingredients.
Then I floated around my studio
Got philosophical as I gazed out at my garden
Contemplated on the beauty of my big fat tentacled Aloe Vera
And looked through some treasured gifts. Here a bunch of beautiful cat postcards by Etienne Delessert.
And exquisite vintage lace hankies gifted to me long ago...
And Arches watercolour paper given to me by an artist friend yesterday (just look at the utterly gorgeous texture and the edges! ) -
This is a pretty little trinket picked up during a walk down Brigade Road this week...
Then I browsed through this. The cover is better than the story, but that's my opinion with a cold in my head.
Then I made more Masala Chai
And made these utterly delicious and easy, pan fried Fennel Drop biscuits (from a recipe in one of Anjum Anand's books).
As you can see I've indulged in an absolutely useless, self- indulgent and enjoyable blog post (which we probably all need to do once in a while), and I feel so much better already. It must be the plate full of Fennel biscuits, oops, and the Masala Chai too! :)
