The smell of bread baking

Is there anything quite so lovely as the waft of yeast bread filling your nose and then your soul?  It seems to have so much unspeakable meaning.  Home and Wellness and Love and Joy and all of it in a swirling of delight.

Sadly, it’s not my bread that is baking right now.  One of my neighbors has taken to baking.  I’m just pleased to have had the gift of the smell.

I’m quite excited now for the flour I ordered from Janie’s Mill to arrive so I can bake some for myself.   I was feeling deeply guilty about buying it.  It costs the moon.  And considering the unstable state of my job, I shouldn’t have done it.  But there isn’t a bag of flour anywhere in the Grocery.  And I am supporting Celi from Kitchens Garden and supporting a small business by doing it.  And I love bread.  And it’s excellent flour that didn’t strip the land of all it’s goodness.  And those are my reasons.  So.

I will try to remember to take some pictures and post them for you all when I get the flour and bake my bread.

EEEEEEK.  My flour arrived just now.  I’m soooo pleased.
