I'm baking brioche from a starter! It's my first time making brioche. And my first time using natural leavening. Everything has taken longer than I expected/read, but it seems to be turning into bread? It smells SO GOOD in here, you guys. Wish I could share smells!
The other night, the hotel we were in had "Gluten-Free Vegan Cake" for dessert. I wonder if the gluten-free vegans were fresh, or if they brought them in frozen. Either way, they made a pretty tasty cake.
My wife can barely speak at all, due to the tumor. (to communicate we ask questions and she nods) I have noticed in the early mornings she says a few words. I made a short video and emailed it to her daughter, saying thank you and love you. only 5 words, but the video made her day.
It's not just the loud, impressive Blue Angels jets swooping overhead, but also smaller stunt planes too, some of them shiny bright colors. Fleet Week is the only time living this close to an airport is almost awesome.
Idle thought as I was ripping out turf and listening to music, when "Old Friends" came up: "Gee, Paul Simon can't be that much younger than I. Will he really find it terribly strange to be 70?"
