The sun, finally! // Nareszcie słońce!


 
 After two depressive weeks when it had snowed almost continually the sun finally showed up! 
As the proverb says:  there’s no rose without a thorn, in my situation a beautiful sunny Saturday is accompanied by eleven degrees of frost! 
Hopefully, a thaw is forecast for next week and 4 degrees above zero. I'm a bit worried about the huge amount of water running from roofs and lying on the streets but we'll see what happens.


To celebrate this nice sunny afternoon, I've made a sponge babka cake.

  1. Hi Dewberry,

    Such lovely photos of the snow! The sponge babka cake looks yummy! Care to share the recipe? (my oven has gone kaput since yesterday and I feel so lost - no baking until I get it fixed).

    1. Thank you! That's a pity that your oven went kaput, I don't know what would I do without my oven. I hope you'll have it fixed soon.

      I will share the recipe for the babka cake because it's a traditional cake in Poland.

    1. I read on Daily Mail that the UK is having now the so called Big Thaw. I hope the thaw in the UK and in Poland won't cause a flood.

  10. Hi Dewberry,

    Thank you for visiting and commenting, which has led me back here to your site. I'm totally intrigued and will be exploring more posts. Here in Nova Scotia, Canada, it has been very cold for a few days although yesterday was beautifully sunny, and warmer weather is coming. I look forward to spring...
