books, knitting, food and whatever else I want to write about

When I was a kid, I enjoyed Charlotte's Web so I wanted to read another E. B. White book. I have not seen the Stuart Little movies either. This was a nice little children's book which is written more of a series of short stories on the adventures of Stuart Little. I liked most of the stories. The characters were sweet and I liked the New York City setting too. Margola the bird and the…

I read this on Free Comic Book Day except I didn't want to queue for that so I read this manga instead. Reading this again naturally reminded me of the novel and the many other adaptations I've seen. This is such a grim and tragic story. There are a lot of characters in the book who were treated very poorly and dealt bad hands. Pip was also really ignorant of things for most of the…

Nate Parker is very handsome in this, but it's all Gugu. Goodness they had great chemistry. Ant-Man (16-18 04 2016) - Watched this movie on and off for three days because my schedule was packed that weekend. I liked this. The humor worked all…

With this entry, I have gone off the one sourdough recipe I have been making and found others. Basically, I am doing the turn and fold method with the long bulk fermentation for all my breads now. It is mostly working too and I love eating my sourdough. I bake it about once a week now, often prepping the dough in the morning and evening for first and second proof, then baking at night. I…
