Happy Halloween!

~Becky (and Trav and Charlie)

P.S. I have to go back to work tomorrow :( Charlie is 3 months old!
Time to take off my leggings and go back out into the real world for a while. Its just such a long time to be away from my baby...
But happily, its only for six weeks, and then I am only going to be working part-time.

P.P.S. Why are pictures in black and white and sephia so fun?

Instead of homework I cook/bake.

As a break during all of those arduous hours spent doing homework, I sometimes cook or bake My most recent project: sourdough bread. The picture below is my 'mother starter' or 'levain'. Is it strange that I'm thinking about naming her? She does live in my little pantry . . .

These 3 vessels pictured directly above contain my sourdough in 3 different stages. The levain/starter is on the furthest left. It lives on as long as I feed it. The middle was the jump-started version of the starter that I then mixed with flour, water and salt to make the dough on the furthest right which will soon become loaves of bread. Can't wait to pull those out of the oven!

All played out.

I think Charles looks a lot like Travis in this picture.
Just waking up from a nap...
Tummy time!
Charlie was having kind of a Parisian day.
