A Good Day With Bad Weather

We have been hoping for bad weather, because there are a few projects waiting for us, that take time. Today was a nice day: the weather was really, really bad, so we needed no excuses to stay in the house all day long. When I say bad, you can be sure, it is bad. I would walk in the rain. But not in this rain. The kind of rain that gets hills moving downwards. The news reported several mudflows in Carinthia today.
I keep looking at the hill behind the house, a lot of trees are gone. The owner removed a lot of trees form the forest and I am keeping my fingers crossed, that the hill stays where it is.
Another hill. with plenty of trees to hold the hill.

Last night I started going through all the printed and scribbled recipes. They've accumulated over time and I decided to transfer them to recipe-cards, just the way my mother used to keep recipes.
Not every recipe will make it on a card. Lemon-maplesyrup-juice to keep my hydrated.

Believe it or not, but going through old recipes IS fun. It tells you a lot about yourself, your preferences. I obviously prefer cinnamon, carrots. They can be found in many recipes.

 When you are foolish enough to invent extra work, be sure to supply yourself with the best tools possible. Clairefontaine paper for example. 
French paper is a smooth fundament for any future recipe box. 

All I can say, the new system already works. Mr Paula is preparing a late lunch/early dinner with one of the new recipe cards. Success!

Enjoy your bad weather, in case it decided to pay you a visit today.

PS: In case you are wondering how our apartment transformed over night. This is not the Paula Residence, but our friend's old farmhouse in Carinthia!
