lazy museum sunday


What I did this lazy Sunday:
Baked a biscotti Elizabeth.
(Longtime readers may remember the one I made of our dog Cash.)

Did some Valentine's Day shopping.


Watched Veronica loll about shamelessly.

Stately, kindly, lordly friend, 
 Condescend 
 Here to sit by me, and turn 
 Glorious eyes that smile and burn, 
 Golden eyes, love's lustrous meed, 
 On the golden page I read. 

 All your wondrous wealth of hair, 
 Dark and fair, 
 Silken-shaggy, soft and bright 
 As the clouds and beams of night, 
 Pays my reverent hand's caress 
 Back with friendlier gentleness.
 - from "To a Cat," by the incomparable Algernon Swinburne

Gorgeous poem! I'm forwarding it to my cat-loving friend. (She lives with seven cats.)

Oh it IS yummy! I like to make my biscotti with lemon zest, but orange zest will do too.
