The cat started to overheat when we got back from hiking to find the sun had shone through my tent and turned the black floor into lava and the interior to an oven, and I’m so mad at myself for not considering this would be a problem. The only time she’s really seriously overheated it was 95° and June and we were stuck somewhere far longer than we were meant to be. It’s not more than 78° here, but her fir is so unbelievably thick. Poor thing, she’s fine now, she warned me before it got bad, but ima have to find somewhere in the town go for the whole afternoon tomorrow because it’ll be 85 up here and she doesn’t need that
Last week’s bread was a complete tire fire. I tried to make half as much as I usually do, but forgot to half the water so I ended up with swampy dough. I used a pan to try to keep it together but no dice. It was a complete, and utter disaster!
So this week I went back to basics, which is a thing I often do, to re-center my process.
15% milled einkorn berries
25% strong flour
50% bread flour
.5% barley malt
I know I’ve said this before, but it’s usefully humbling when you just completely mess up. It’s somehow centering you know? Every time it happens I go right back to basics on my next bake and I’m much more mindful, more in the moment as I go through the steps. It’s like a cleansing meditation. There’s just so much, every day. Sometimes it feels like it has weight. Taking a Sunday afternoon to bloom a dough, carefully, methodically, gives me a little space to breath. The bread is delicious.
My friend (@kaylibakescakes on social media) is an incredible baker and if she wins this she will be featured in Bake from Scratch Magazine, receive a year’s supply of Stuffed Puffs, and $20,000! That money could help set up her business properly!

Keith: And there you have it. Dreama is BACK in the game after being shafted by Noor last time. Though in all honestly, she was never out. All of the girls have already responded in with what their solo dates will be and all are doable! I’m impressed. No one tried to sneak a trip. Man I could go for a baked treat right now... Maybe I’ll loiter around the kitchen.

This challenge though it didn’t have a fancey look to it- did have a skill that accompanied it! The ladies were tested on their Logic skill!
Ich kann es nicht wirklich beschreiben, ich bin einfach nicht ich selbst. Ich freue mich nicht mehr über die dinge, über die ich mich freuen müsste und ich Trauer auch nicht über die dinge, über die ich eigentlich trauern müsste.
Um ehrlich zu sein, kann ich dir auch nicht sagen wieso oder weshalb. Ich kenne den Grund nicht und das macht es um so schlimmer. Es ist so als würde das Leben einfach an mir vorbeiziehen
