There are many things that make me happy. Today it's these:
In Latin American culture there is a special holiday in January called Epiphany, this holiday remembers the three kings that brought gifts to baby Jesus ( it has it's origins in Catholicism). so on January 6th, families come together to celebrate and distribute this cake.
I like to think of it as the Latin version of a Christmas fruit cake (or more like a bread really), except for one exception! a Rosca cake has tiny baby figures hidden inside so that when the cake pieces are distributed, whoever has a figure in their slice gets money. Yes , I am well aware that having tiny plastic figures in your food is dangerous .....
There's an adorable little kumquat tree in my backyard that has been there all my life. Truth be told I don't really care for the fruit but it breaks my heart to see the Kumquats grow so big then wilt after a few weeks, so I always pick them anyways xD
It's so funny how my cat Fernie likes to sit with his paws elevated. I have caught him sitting like this a few times and finally got the pictures to prove it! you can totally see his little paws clearly resting on the upper bar.
What isn't very obvious in this picture is how high he his. My cat is peering over a 10 foot balcony into the backyard!
thanks for reading! :)
