Nesting between Wanderings

We were back in Vancouver for a few weeks between wandering by bicycle and wandering on skis. In addition to the obvious at-home pleasure of catching up with friends, we did some things that are very difficult to do when living out of panniers and moving almost every day. We had missed these,  so we took pleasure in doing them as part recharging our batteries before wandering again.

We made three batches of marmalade. It was Seville orange season.

I made soup stock. The aroma wafted through the house as it simmered.

I moved my knitting skills a step forward from the simple hats started while on the road.

I made bread. This is semolina bread that was awfully good with camembert.

We are weight conscience when we cycle. We don’t carry many books and haven’t adequately figured out e-readers. We had time to simply sit and read.

To top off the nesting experience, we had the company of a convivial cat.
There is nothing as soothing as the purring of a comfortable  feline friend!

  1. Happy travels next trip!

  2. Whose cat is that? Does this mean I should pack extra antihistamines for my visit in May? 😉
