The best day of my life

Why? Because the world didn’t end!

Also, the farmer’s market killed this morning. I got a little lost trying to find the Olmos Basin Park, but I made it by 7:30 and met Penny. Penny is Juan’s wife and she rocks pretty hard. I learned more about herbs in six hours than I had learned in the previous eighteen years of my life, and I learned enough to sell them with seeming credibility. People were asking me questions about how tall certain herbs grow, how to cook with them, and whether they’re full or half-sunlight. I answered with the responses that Penny taught me a few minutes prior, and the customers walked away impressed that I grew all the herbs myself and knew so much about them. Like taking candy from a pre-natal baby. So I worked there till 1:30, met a lot of other farmers, got some hook-ups on jams and vegetables, then scored sixty male deer. I took some pics of the view from behind the stand, but the weather was terrible this morning.

I came home and ate and decided my next bread would be http://www.thefreshloaf.com/recipes/paindeprovence. 50% because the herbs this morning inspired me, 50% because I want to try my yeast (poolish), 50% because my family doesn’t eat the sandwich bread and they ate all the biscotti I didn’t freeze, 50% because I’m going to be busy this week and want to bake now, 50% because I want to!

Also, I finished The Life of Pi last night and have entered full Harry Potter mode. So if you want to talk HP, holla at me.
