managed to hook me up with the shirtless!Sam gifs that I
So, I've added them to my sidebar & like to think that these three tell a little story... ;)
Sam's working out & sees Dean watching him...
Sam's all 'like what you see? Strip!'
Dean doesn't have to be told twice!
I've had some lovely responses to my 1920's AU McShep art, 'World, far away'
, &, as I'd mentioned that I felt it could easily be viewed as Lord John & Rodney from my Big Bang story 'Time & Tide'
, it's been lovely to have a few comments to that, too!
I love the idea that people are coming new to something that I wrote quite a while ago. :)
In completely different news, with the installation of a new window blind our kitchen renovation is finally complete! \o/
It's a whole new kitchen (everything was ripped out) & I absolutely love it! (I'll take some pics to share when I get a second.) It's a fairly small area (no room for seating but it does lead into the dining room through an open doorway, so that's not a problem) but the new layout has given me so much more storage space! I actually have empty shelves! LOL Although, I've rediscovered my love for baking (after a break of over 15 years) & so I doubt they'll stay empty for long with all the supplies I'm buying. *g*
I'm finding the baking very therapeutic for my depression, funnily enough.
I'm concentrating on fairly straightforward stuff like muffins for now, but I'm loving baking them from scratch, & the measuring, sifting & mixing is weirdly soothing. :)
My lovely xanthe
gave me her recipe for the gorgeous pear & ginger muffins that I always love (& scoff!) when I stay with her, & I'm really pleased at how they've turned out. (Although the first batch was a bit iffy. Turned out my oven wasn't quite at the temp it said it was - thank goodness for an oven thermometer!)
I'm also planning to try out some raspberry & lemon muffins, & some carrot & pineapple wholemeal muffins. The recipes sound very scrumptious.
If anyone has any favourite muffin recipes - please do share! :)
Happy Thursday, all!
