maps and happy challahs


here's a thought that occurred to me while i was traveling a few weeks ago...i've never been able to re-fold those big road maps once they're open, and i've realized that i probably never will. i think there are bigger battles to fight in life, so i'm going to let the map thing go.

it's an insane day today - making prints - doodles - halloween stuff - baking - yes, baking - i am putting a rare foot in the k**chen (can't say the word out loud) and making challahs (braided bread) for the lawrence jewish community center which is having its big annual blintz brunch/bake sale on sunday - it draws a large crowd from the entire community and it's the only fundraiser so i thought perhaps for once i could shelve my disinterest in domestic chores and create something edible for a good cause (and keep a few for us, too). twelve happy challahs. here goes. i hope the oven doesn't blow up! :)

thereza: no dyslexia, but i have SERIOUS problems with linear thinking which folding a map requires... when there's only one way to get to the finish line i'm no good!

i can never fold those maps either!

i'm proud of you for baking bread! is the farmer's market in your plans for the weekend? i'd love to bump into you around town sometime soon.

ps. i would never guessed, 38. :)

I can fold and refold maps and even make you an origami driving hat out of it. Just don't ask me to read it. Especially if you're somewhat irate and are giving me sideways glares while breathing heavily. The pressure, the PRESSURE!

Challah bread! And TWELVE! Oh my, that's fantastic. The one time I tried to make bread, they came out as lethal weapons. I wish I could bake soft, delicious bread.

bella, that's why one must be the driver, not the navigator!

heather, you're sweet! i still get to milk 37 for a while longer... yay...

oh, and the challahs turned out great - nothing exploded - not even me!
