Productive morning

The last pan of lussekatter is in the oven, entirely out of season but filling the house with the smell of saffron. I hope puppies like saffron: kneading that much into dough is going to leave my hands slightly fragrant even after I shower and put on lotion and eat lunch and all of those useful things.

Mine aren't quite like the one in the picture. For one thing, they're not as pretty, rather more amorphous and sluglike. (I rolled them into the s-shapes, but they seem to have baked into figure-8-ish-blobs, with the lines of the s unclear.) For another, half of them have dried blueberries instead of raisins. This does not seem to me to be an obviously bad idea, but we'll see.

I also discovered that I can clean the downstairs bathroom in five minutes flat (it lacks a tub or shower), not counting the mopping, which is a separate chore to my way of thinking. This is useful information to have.

And I finished reading Desolation Island while working out, so I'll pick up something else, but I don't know what yet. Not the next O'Brian, as I don't have it on hand, and anyway I think it's probably better for me not to sink my brain too far into that world. Hmm. This is one of those times when I have too many good options rather than too few. We'll see.
