Why is winter so hard to photograph? Summer is easy, fall isn't bad, spring... well we don't really have spring here, so I wouldn't know. But winter. Gosh. It has it's beauty, it really does. But through a lens, my lens that is, it's blurry and grainy and either dark or washed out... so I don't post very often. Even though I have more time, I just don't take pictures. Unlike in the summer where I take lots of photos but never manage to post. Sigh. And then there's all the i-phone photos people post that could skate circles around my poor little Fuji Film camera. It's silly.
Oh well, I make donuts. And even though I don't have great instagram pics to prove it and seem all trendy and cute, I get to eat them. So there's that. And even though the light was bad, I wanted to show you. I used this recipe to break in my new donut pan (though now I'm really ashamed of my photos after re-looking at her's, I'm not a photographer! Please don't judge!) and they were super good. They really did taste like and have the texture of real donuts!
And I've been knitting, and buying yarn. I still have so many projects finished that I need to share here, and I promise I will as soon as I get photos taken. I swear this really is a problem, three hours of light just isn't enough! It's still a beautiful winter though. With plenty of evenings spent like this, with knitting on my lap and tea by my side. It's good, in all of it's dark, pixel-ated, wonder.
