Two Tramps In Mud Time By Robert Frost

“The sun was warm but the wind was chill.

You know how it is with an April day.

When the sun is out and the wind is still,

You’re one month on in the middle of May.

But if you so much as dare to speak,

a cloud come over the sunlit arch,

And wind comes off a frozen peak,

And you’re two months back in the middle of March.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit


I’m back with Weekly Photo Challenge with Habit in theme this week.

Yesterday on Sunday afternoon I went to visit a friend of mine who has a Christmas Trees land. Initially, I was planning to do a quick visit and then go to a country park nearby. As I wandering around his field I found lots of fungi down on the ground which I thought they were mushroom but apparently I was wrong. So I ended up searching for another fungi in his field instead of go the country park for shooting the trees and leaves for autumn photos.

Shooting trees and leaves in the autumn is my habit at the moment and now I’ve grown up my new habit that is shooting fungi or mushrooms. I read some article on internet that say autumn is an ideal time to see the fruiting bodies of them so this is become my new habit at the moment.

I couldn’t identify all the fungi that I saw in my friend’s land, only a few of them. But hope you all enjoy it!

Here they are:

By the way have you ever heard a joke says “why is the mushroom funny?”

Cranberries and Almond Crunchies


I got this recipe from Delia Online called Cherry and Almond Crunchies. Since I don’t have dried cherries so I substituted it with dried cranberries and any other dried fruits. I’ve been making these cookies many times and have altered with my own ingredients as suggested in the recipe.

I’ve substituted the dried cherry with the cranberries and also with sultanas, raisins, apricots, and crystallized gingers. I added 60gr mixed of ground chestnuts and seeds (pumpkin seeds, linseed, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, and melon seeds) to every recipe that I made.

Also I’ve used half-half white self-raising flour and wholemeal self-raising flour.

  This is a healthy recipe so enjoy it!
