The 'loving'this week' posts are all about the little moments in your days and weeks that have tickled your heart.
After skipping over a 'loving this week' post for May (I was in pre-holiday work chaos, and just didn't get to doing one), I'm delighted to be back with a snapshot of what I'm loving at the moment.
This week, I'm loving vegan orange cake with (soy) cream cheese frosting. It's the same recipe as the orange cake I made earlier in the year, but with the addition of the orange zest. It tastes like orange this time. It's possible I liked the other one more (orange and I aren't super friendly in baked goods), but I'm still loving the simplicity of homemade cake with tea on a weekend afternoon.
I'm loving Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, another foray into science fiction reading. The book was on the 'book swap' shelf of our Daintree accommodation, and Mr Bite reported enjoying it when he read it some years ago. The story blends technology and an advanced computer programmed 'metaverse' with sociology, linguistics and religion. It's quite the read.
I'm loving carob kibbles, for a second time.
I'm loving chickpeas (nothing new there).
I'm loving Perth winter. Never let it be said that I don't proclaim my adoration of the seasons I do like as much as I proclaim my horror at the ones I don't!

I'm loving my husband (nothing new there either!). This June marked 4 years since we started dating, and tomorrow marks 10 months since our wedding. It's hard to believe that 4 years ago I believed that I could only marry someone if we maintained separate houses. These days, and especially after 2 weeks on holiday together, a single work day sometimes seems like a long time to be apart.
Last but not least, I'm loving new running shoes. Details will come in my next Fitness Friday post (as will my experiences with orthotics), but I am delighted with my latest Brooks model and am looking forward to trying them out on my long runs over the coming weeks.
What are you loving this week?
