the comforts of sunday
I do not wish to sound excessively dramatic here, but I have done something today that has boosted my spirits quite beyond expectation. I have (for the first time in CRM history) made a batch of Honey Whole Wheat bread (recipe via UmberDove, who first introduced me to the viability and beauty of baking bread at home even without a bread maker). Now I know it's just cooking, and just bread at that, but I feel like I have now somehow joined in solidarity and comradery with generations of women throughout history...all the hands that have kneaded out of necessity, hunger, love, craftsmanship.
I have been in great quest for the simple.
(even more simple than usual)
Sigh. It feels good.
It just feels soooo damn good.
