baking late at night...

Sometimes, some projects are best left to the daytime. Baking bread, it would seem, is one of those things. My husband loves my homemade multigrain bread and today I forgot to make a loaf so when I put Seth to bed, I put the ingredients in the breadmaker (what?? did you think I actually did the kneading by hand?!?!) on the dough setting, set the oven timer to two hours and forgot about it till it beeped at me. I watched a little TV, read a few chapters in the book Inkheart to Noah, chatted on the phone and got the bread out of the breadmaker when it beeped. I put the dough in the pan to rise and walked away...forgetting all about it. I also forgot to preheat the oven (the heat from which helps the dough to rise) and just now, at 11:41pm realized that I have yet to bake the bread for a half hour. UGH! So even though I'm ready for bed, I can't go there or else I will have wasted my bread dough and Ray will not have bread to make his lunch with. So in an attempt to spread happiness rather than my sour-puss mood, I'll share this cute photo of Seth. Watch tomorrow for the page that I did with it.

This is in Nanny's back yard this past Saturday. SO CUTE!!

I don't remember but my computer does...Let's see...it was shot at ISO800, f/2.8 and 1/1000, No flash. He was swinging on the swings but the image was blurry so I converted to B&W and applied a teeny bit of Gaussian Blur, burned the edges a bit too cuz I love the look. I love this pic too. Thanks
