Living and Learning: The Week Ahead...

Kitchen, Pantry, Table
I am still tinkering with the Cranberry Cake that I made a few weeks ago.  I love the cake batter so much and decided that I would switch out the cranberries for blueberries and thought that the flavors went well together.  My next change is going to be with the topping.  I think that it will be lovely with regular streusel topping.  I'll try it this week and let you know how it goes!

Romanian photographer, Bogdan Girbovan, decided to capture how different people live in identical apartments.  I love looking at how different people choose to set up their homes and really enjoyed looking at these photos.  My favorite version of this apartment is the one on the fifth floor.  Spotting icons on many of the walls or propped up on shelves was a nice bonus in this feature! 

Father John and I were able to watch the first episode of Mercy Street last night and are looking forward to watching the second one tonight.  As you know, I love historical dramas and though the subject of this one is a little different from my usual choice in programs, I really enjoyed it!  Have a look at the preview below:

On My Bedside Table
I'm about 3/4 of the way through The Nightingale and it is a pretty good story.  It is the moving story of two sisters living in France during Nazi occupation.  There is a lot of suspense and sadness in the tale and though I cannot say that it is in my list of favorite books, I am not sorry that I am reading it.

loved those apartment pictures!!! made me want to go look at my old apartment Ottawa pictures... looks like those apartments were studios, with bed near by... there is something about cities and apartments that really attract me; it's funny, as I grew up in houses and only houses and did not know anyone who lived in apartments, but now, I love them.
