The business of bread ...

Another day when I end up wondering where it all went. It's not as if I hung around breakfast the way I often do - there was online Morning Prayer at 9.30 and I was determined to be clothed and with my face on ...

That little bit of frustration over, it was time to embark on the next stage of my attempt to make a sourdough loaf. This is, as I remember all too well, true Domestic Goddess stuff in that it involves a hearty bit of kneading (I don't have a proper DG mixer) followed by the anxious peering at a small lump of dough to see if it's growing at all (not much, is the answer).

The Blip is actually of part of someone's garden - or their ground, at least - and struck me as appealingly gentle-looking.

And that was it, really. Day over. Month nearly over. Lent nearly over - though as something I saw on Facebook today pointed out: This is the Lentiest Lent I've ever lented ...
