Biscuit tree’d something at about 4am, and so began my day. The moon was very bright, the creatures were restless, me too.
I snapped a picture of the moon at about 5:30, and another about 10 minutes later.
And there’s the proof – time flies. The sun is like our taskmaster – get up, get up! Things to do! I remember how The Duke used to like to say, “We’re burnin’ daylight!” How true!
So, as soon as I got my head on, I realized this was a good opportunity to get the bread done early. Nothing says “Hello There!” like a festering pot of dough.
The starter is already excited this time of year, cause the kitchen is already warm. Add yeast, warm water and more flour, and you get a happy little mound.
And now I can have my smoothie and sit down to read the paper for an hour while that sits in a pot getting even bigger.
Look how excited that dough gets in the pot.
Time to turn on the oven, while there’s still a cool breeze blowing in the windows. I already forgot what I read in the newspaper, same old hard scrabble, lots of phony promises – the more things Change!, the more they stay the same. Meet the new boss, and all that.
Well, off and running.
