  • No baking to report today.
  • Bill is fermenting nicely and is developing an attractive aroma, slightly tangy at this stage.
  • Six couche cloths have arrived from Bakery Bits, only two are for me.
  • Shopping yesterday failed to yield the desired trigger spray bottle
  • I did get Bill a new home with a flat bottom

  • I just need to bake some rolls and biscuits for cheese before the wind gets too high.
  • The baked goods are essential – I bought myself a little Chaumes yesterday and I am looking forward to it with fevered anticipation
