spring cleaning I

...
this time of the year
I always feel that I have too many things
that my apartment is too cluttered
that I need space in my studio
that I have to get rid of things which I don't even remember that I have

so I'm cleaning and organizing one room by one
the windows got washed by M. after 9 years living in this apartment
I'm so happy

it's only around this time of the year
that I get that much light in the afternoon
spring is close

the art of doing a performance

...
they expected a performance
they got some cocktails
everybody was waiting that something is going to happen
it did
but not how they expected

terapija

a good headache the day after or
already the night

I like to mix cocktails

party time

...
it's been some time since posting
I was organizing the party for my birthday

I like dress up parties
and everybody did its best

the eye I did for M.
clearly inspired by Dali

the cake I did for S.
inspired by this recipe
but used my own chocolate cake recipe

if you count the roses you get my age

again on sourdough


...
I have to admit
it was not easy
after a long journey in sourdough baking
I know now how it works for me
the last loafs of bread got really good
I mean
round
bold
with air bubbles bigger then 2 mm
a crust that broke

I have learnt
that the starter really needs to be strong
that I have to feed the sourdough starter every week at least once
if I don't bake a bread, a part of it goes in the trash
that the dough may not be too sticky
that it needs time to double in volume
I do it now mostly through a whole night and bake in the morning
and I have to listen to my belly, the recipes are mostly not correct
and this book is shit-sorry-it's fool of mistakes
