Second Attempt At Sourdough

I solemnly swear, I’m going to figure this sourdough bread thing out, if it’s the last thing I do. I’ve watched every video, and read every article I can get my hands on. So I really should be an expert by now…in SPIRIT anyway. This was my second attempt and it was only ok. Please note there are no pictures from my first go around. It was…ahem… pretty dreadful. This one was too heavy and wet inside. Not right at all.
I’ll try again and see if I can get a loaf that is just what it ought to be. Fingers crossed. Fingers crossed.
The bright side is that if I never figure it out it will be fine. I hear there’s a Kneader’s going up just down the street.
Buying sourdough to support a local business would kind of make me a hero. Right?
Heh, heh.

Nearly Summer Snow

A few days ago we woke up to some crazy rain. I mean, like torrents of rain.  For 4 or 5 minutes it even turned to hail. I was amazed that it wasn’t even all that cold outside…just wet. We found this odd pile of hail in one spot on the lawn that must have slid off the roof or something.

ANYway, the best part of all this moisture is…

what it does to our mountains.

Oooooh.

Not bad for nearly June–right?

Tarmac In the Spring

Our cute little Tarmac the House Squirrel is all decked out with a bouquet of Spring flowers.

If I didn’t know better, I’d think he was going on a date.

Too bad he’s…so…HOUSEBOUND!

HAaaa! Get it?! HAA!

 

Outside Looking In

Hobbes can’t figure out why the kid is INSIDE and he…is not.

Haha. I don’t feel too bad because we have a cat door that he is welcome to use at ANY time.

Silly rabbit.

 

Porch make over is coming along very nicely. I LOVE my pretty white door. Don’t you?
