Epic bread fail today. Not only did I forget to add the salt but I added too much water and over-proofed my sourdough bread. Fail, on three counts. I wanted to blame my kitchen-aid mixer and had a moment of covetousness (my sister has a Bosch mixer). But other than being annoying the kitchen-aid mixer wasn’t the problem. The only answer I could come up with is sinusitis which gives me a “head-in-the-clouds” kind of feeling.
Well, I don’t feel like making more bread this weekend which means we’ll be eating tasteless flat bread or I’m going to buy some sourdough bread from the farmers’ market. I think I’ll buy bread.
I lost the baby monitor. In my cleaning frenzy this morning I misplaced the baby monitor. Our house is laid out in such a way that I can’t hear Teddy screaming upstairs when I’m in the kitchen. Hopefully my husband will find it when he gets home.

No firewood yet. After looking at Annie’s woodpiles I was reminded that we have a wood stove to heat our home but very little wood to burn in it. I drove in circles today trying to find wood with no luck. I did spot some nice wood piles, at other peoples’ homes, and I was tempted to stop and ask those people where they got their wood. But then I felt shy and kept driving in circles.
I got a library card! In case you were wondering if all seven takes were going to be about my failures today I wanted to post a triumph. I am very happy to be in the possession of a library card once again. Tonight I’ll be getting acquainted with the online library catalogue, I can hardly wait!
No more disposable diaper wipes. We are making the final transitions back to cloth diapering. I stopped buying disposable wipes and we are only using disposable diapers at night time. We use a combination of cotton prefolds with Bummis Super Whisper Wraps and Bumgenius cloth diapers. My cloth diapers are pretty funky smelling so they’ve been getting regular ammonia busting with Funk Rock. I need to work on getting Sweetpea potty trained but maybe next week, or the week after that… I’m in no big rush…
Listening to more good tunes. This songs gets the whole family grooving.
