There has been just a touch of insanity here lately. A work project I just can’t seem to get off the ground, a Windows crash earlier in the month, and a case of the winter Blahs in general. I haven’t really done any baking since the holidays because time has been short and the motivation just hasn’t been there. My hours have been just crazy lately.
I did manage to turn out some sourdough loaves in December without killing the family. Alas I forgot about the starter and it kind of went to pot. I really don’t think the sourdough gig is for me, but I will be delving into them more for the same of learning, and as mentioned in previous posts I’m also after a workable Rye Sour formula.
I’ve also been tending to some social media stuff. I have some who complain “You don’t post to Twitter” and other who whine, “You don’t post to Facebook.” Well guess what, I’ve barely time for email much less posting a zillion links everywhere. So I’ve been testing out a Tumblr Blog and it seems to be working. With the Tumblr site I can broadcast to both. That works for me. Trust me the less time spent on facebook the better I like it. It’s just a matter of social media fatigue is all. When you have to deal with it for business and then again on a hobby blog, well, things just get a little old. The Tumblr thing is a little bit of fun. Lots of things to discover there and liking it much better than both Twitter and FB.
I received sort of a mini library of new baking books over the Christmas holiday, one purchased for myself and the others gifted by family. My brother – Oy! He bookmarked some pages before giving me the book. So some book reviews will be in strore soon.
Hope you all had a Happy and Healthy start to the New Year!
