It has been a strangely busy and draining few weeks. Mikal has landed an internship that may well turn into a full-time job, which has been an interesting experience. He is enjoying it, which is definitely a plus. On the other hand, it seems to be messing with my morning routine something fierce, and between that and the hectics, I just haven’t felt like posting or baking. Weird, right?
It seems like our life is entering a state of flux. We have been looking around at new places to rent, because while I love living here, living at work is a little much at this point. I’ve gotten to that point where it’s time for a change, and rearranging the furniture is helping, but not really enough. On the plus side, we did get new couches and I rearranged the kitchen, and it’s tidier than it has ever been here…. but it’s also making me feel the need to clean and organize more often. That’s how I have spent half of my last three weekends – cleaning out closets, rearranging the kitchen, cleaning out the fridge, trying to clean up the living room after we got the new couches and rearranged…. It’s simultaneously really rewarding and exceptionally tiring. There are so many reasons why I could never be Suzy Homemaker.
At any rate, I’m hoping to get a couple of posts done for the next couple of weeks so that I can at least feel like I have been productive with the blog. I have stopped with the starter and more complex yeast breads project because I still cannot make a decent loaf of sandwich bread. Better to start at the basics. But then, I’ve always tried for the extra credit without doing the homework, so it really shouldn’t surprise me that I’m doing the same thing in this situation.
