I am feeling very relaxed this evening; I have an Italian stew simmering in the crockpot, a glass of wine next to me, and Lucifer playing on the television.

I absolutely love Doctor Who, so much that I have a pretty significant Doctor Who POP figure collection. Continue reading Doctor Who and Fresh Baked Bread
