Last week, I had a migrane Monday to Thursday--the time just crawled--but this week sped by! Lucy and I have been out and about. Monday I was able to give a talk on my favorite sister in the faith, Julian of Norwich, for a small church group. Tuesday Clint and I had some much needed family time at home. Wednesday I went out to the drop-in at our Midwives. Thursday we went to women's Bible study and to the mall. Today we...
Saw: Gray skies; smiles from friends and strangers (no one can resist Lucy's lovely smiling face); the tall green trees of the UBC Endowment lands from the foggy, rain-streaked bus windows; Regent!
Heard: Lucy stories (Oh! Da, da, da, da, da. Mmmmm. etc.); the squeak of the Johnny Jump-up; the catching-up stories of good friends.
Felt: Powdery white flour, silky eggs in warm water, the stick of new dough, the work of kneading and pounding; the springy-smooth surface of enriched bread dough, the complexity of a 6 strand challah braid.
Smelled: The gentle alcohol of yeast dough; the mouth watering baking.
Tasted: Fresh, warm, melt-in-your-mouth Challah. In Regent. On the Bus. With my roast potato dinner. Mmm.
