Dupont -still!

Bread: finished one loaf! Now all is in freezer except one loaf I will use myself. R is not keep on most of it! A couple suggestions of bread pudding; I thought it might be better than the bland stuff but R says not. This is all German rye/pumpernickel! I like all of it, some more than others but that was the nature of the exercise - to find out which I liked best and which R might like as well as the soft pumpernickel. He will eat the odd slice of something else. So I will be eating a lot of good bread. My 2nd son pointed out that he orders 6 dozen bagels from Montreal; he slices and freezes them and makes them last about 6 months! He saw no reason to be excited about a year's worth of bread! May be hereditary?

Made more humous yesterday; That, R loves! So I have another pot of chick peas cooking. (oops, forgot to get more lemons!) So, this am, I spent almost two hours driving R and then picked up stuffs at two stores and came home. Started distiller, had a bite to eat, hoping for rain to clear the air. Windows still closed, smoke still in the air, house is warmer than I like although it is lovely cool outside... Now go fetch bedding and do a laundry.

If it rains, I will open a couple windows, may cool off pottery room enough to do some work; just got an order for some mugs. Would be good to throw a whole bunch - or as many as I have energy to do!

Tried using the newer weed eater a few days ago. I lasted until the battery quit - about 15 minutes! When I sat to rest up (while it recharged), I picked up a mug and my hand was shaking so I near spilled some. I need someone else to do this yard work.

Sprinkling out! Do laundry and consider pottery situation.
