Curious

Standard

I just had a really vivid dream of my coworker Lucy wearing a red shirt and being really pregnant. She was sitting in a rocking chair at work, making up a song about Friday being her day. Something like “Today is Friday, and it’s my day!”. And my coworker Edgar was playing a keyboard flawlessly the whole time with an ascending melody that was accompanying her. Lucy looked very peaceful and happy.

It was so vivid and non-bizzare dream that I thought it was real when I woke up. Huh. And then I couldn’t figure how to accurately sum it up on Twitter. 🙂

Awww!

Cutest moment of babysitting Fiona last night: I was helping her get ready for bed and mentioned that when she was a baby and I lived with them that I put her to bed allll the time (it was one of my favorite things to do). She said, “You lived with me?”, and I told her I used to live in their (current) toy room.

She was quiet for a second, and then asked, “When I was a baby, were you my mommy?” I almost died and melted and responded that, no, her mommy had always been her mommy.

So freaking cute. Also, she is now old enough (sort of) to play video games. We played a Disney Princess game on the Wii and it was ok. She’s getting a lot less stubborn as she gets older. She’s a big 5 yo now!

Yeast yeast yeast!

Standard

I’m lying in bed, obsessing about different ways to get the yeast to rise. Maybe I skipped the yeast-water step too quickly? My regular bread recipe doesn’t make you bloom the yeast, so I didn’t even think about it.

I think I will bloom it in warm water, then add the sugar and mix that. Let’s see, then it wants warm milk and butter. Then five egg yolks (I worry this is my folly, as I’ve never used eggs in bread before.) then the flour, nutmeg, and lemon zest. I’m out of lemons to zest, so I’ll have to skip that. Seems so east. I wish Anna were here to help! 😦
