Surveys, Burros and Baking

Sunday, 10 pm - was a cold, wet, windy day. Walked in the blowing rain to SHOPI for a few necessities, but had to check the French dictionary before setting out - trying to bake today, and wasn't sure how to translate baking powder "levure", baking soda"bicarbonate", or cinnamon, "cannelle". J created a wonderful honey cake, and we shared it with the housemates. Everyone was hibernating in their rooms - trying to stay warm & cozy.

Yesterday we went for a walk in a new direction, and found a new friend. One of the instructors knows his name, and that he likes carrots, so I saved a few from our Sunday night vegetable soup for my new furry friend.

Want to take a survey as I finish up my first month of blogging: Am considering a single-page format (a page per day), instead of one continuous long line of entries, but not sure if my "subscribers" read the most recent day, and don't bother going back over "old" entries. Please leave a comment before June 1st - and let me know - a page a day, or a continuous "stream" of blogs - your votes count!
