let's not get too carried away

The internet world can be a little deceiving. It's the time lapse--you know, where someone can make a post with a couple images and it looks like they have the energy of the world harnessed in their very being, making them able to do everything. By everything I mean: cook, clean, dress immaculately and make art all while maintaining cool camera composure. That is not me, although I'm pretty impressed with myself for making yogurt, bread, and a new print this past weekend.

It all happened only because I sent C and M away so I could work on taxes. What happens when I'm supposed to sit in front of a computer and do mathy stuff all day? Well, no taxes but everything else imaginable. If I were an accountant I'd have a huge, perfect garden, fresh food for every meal, and clean, pressed laundry all the time.

Instead I come to work and around 9 o'clock look at myself in the mirror for the first time of the day and wonder to myself what the other people I work with must think of my too-wrinkled clothes and out of control hair.

Lucky I can edit those out and look like I almost have my act together--makes me feel kind of awesome. . .well, no, let's not get too carried away.

haha, you made me laugh with this post. i remember the days i'd show up to work and people would comment that my hair was "so messy!" and my hands had "paint all over them!"...i never thought it was an issue.

The bread looks awesome! Is it breadmaker bread or oven bread? (I'd like the recipe if it's oven bread!)
