At Conny's Mix it Monthly the theme this month is pets, so I decided to do a page with dogs. I would love to be able to have a dog again, but it's not possible just now, so I will just have to keep walking on my own. The background has once again been made with a brush-wipe page, onto which I did some background stamping and embossing to give some texture. Then I gathered all the doggy pictures I found in my bit boxes, added a few other little animals for company, and a heart as it's coming up to Valentine, and it-was-on-my-table-and-kept-falling-off-and-now-it-can't-anymore-because-I-have-stuck-it- down-firmly! I must have picked that silly piece up at least ten times!
Today was a very wild and windy day, with gale force winds, rain and sleet. I went out for my shopping, and decided to walk home along the Rhine, where I had to keep my head down and battle against the wind. But then I had to cross over 2 open fields to get back to the street I live in, and the wind almost blew me off my feet, at one point I had to hold onto a signpost! But I got home safely, if rather wet and wind-blown. And it was beautiful watching the clouds racing by.
And I promised Sandy and a few others to add my flapjacks recipe, so here it is:
300 gramms of Rolled oats
50-75 gr. soft, brown sugar
about 150 gr. golden syrup or treacle (don't be stingy, more is better than less!)
200 gr. butter
half a teaspoon salt.
You can also add some rasins or nuts.
Melt the sugar, syrup, salt and butter in a large saucepan stirring well. Add the oats and mix well. Pour mixture into a baking tin lined with baking paper, spread out evenly (about 1/2" thick). Bake at 180° for about 25 mins. Cut into squares while still hot and leave to cool.
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
