Lazy Sunday

I like Sundays like this. The analysis portion of Comps is still going on, so the music department doesn't need anything from me at the moment. School doesn't begin for another week. Booking speakers for EthNoise is going pretty well. I have plenty of leisure to do things like make challah (rising in the oven as we speak), pick up herb tea and more flour, contemplate doing another baking of bread, since that freezes well and might as well be done before the quarter starts, contemplate possibly acquiring some fruit and making another batch of freezer jam, all these lovely housecrafty things that I will probably be glad to have done once school starts.

On the other hand, my inner twelve-year-old, who is not so much "inner" as "barely covered with a thin, translucent veneer of grownup-ness, spotted a couple of tiny Breyer model horses in a toy store the other day, and has been begging ever since. I loved playing with Breyer horses when I was a kid, and these are tiny and are seriously whinnying my name. I'm trying to decide whether it's worth it to resist or not.

well, enjoying a lazy sunday is among the things you are going to miss when you get bak to school frenzy, so go ahead and enjoy!

I did stock up on flour, so this might indeed turn out to be a legendary two-bakings-of-bread-Sunday.

That sounds so cozy, and you're right to enjoy it while you can. Nothing like being busy out of your mind to make you enjoy just pottering around.

The challah is all baked -- I have a round loaf for Rosh Hashana and a regular braided loaf -- and the second batch of dough (just plain bread dough) is on its first rise. There is nothing quite like homemade bread to make a house feel cozy.

*is amused at the thought of the Pony with little Breyer horses*

And am now seriously hungry for fresh-baked bread. Wah!

So far, I've managed to hold off on the Breyer horses because the toy store in Hyde Park is only selling gift packs of the real tiny ones, for $13 per pack. But the temptation to visit other toy stores in the city is still there . . .

I love how well bread freezes. It encourages long baking days and then you just enjoy for several weeks before you have to gear up to do it again.

Oh yeah, days like that are perfect. Glad you enjoyed it! *whispers* buy the horses...they are calling to you...buy them...

I'm extending the perfection just a little more -- one more baking of bread. Then I'll have six homemade loaves. Think that'll be enough to work with?

The horses are definitely calling to me. Must . . . stay . . . strong . . .
