Round Food

Damn if it isn't February. The main good thing about February is that it's the beginning of the end. Only a few weeks more of trudging through snow and balancing on ice. That is, as many as six weeks: by mid-March, mud has replaced ice and snow, so there's that to look forward to.

Near the end of January, the smallest person in the house had a birthday, to remind us that she won't always be so small. A festive cake was procured for the occasion. Here it is, just before the ritual candles, song and eating. Not long before. The candles and matches were at the ready even as I pointed the camera, and so were the plates and forks.

On the last day of January, non-festive pancakes were created by me and eaten by all. Just another example of round food that we like. Here's my own serving, right before its disappearance.
