Now I have a beautiful bubbly starter going, and have made two loaves of delicious sourdough bread. It turns out that I don't bake it in the bread machine. I make it by hand. There is something really special about feeding my family a meal with fresh baked bread that I made myself.
It's odd that I'm a gamer geek with a soft spot for gadgets and tech, but at the same time I love doing things that are terribly simple and domestic. Spinning yarn, knitting, baking bread by hand, and raising my babies.
Tonight, after cleaning up the kitchen and the dining room, I ran a bath and spent some time with the boys. Ciaran (4) and Quinn (2) enjoyed it so much that (as usual) I had trouble getting them to come out. Part of me would have liked to have kept them in the tub for an hour. It's my time with them. I watched them tonight, after their bath, and I realized again how fast it's all going. I love being their mom. I wish I could just hold on a little longer, make it slow down just a little bit. I think maybe I'm going to blink twice and find them all grown and gone.

I guess I'll need to take more pictures. I don't want to forget how wonderful they are...right now.
Reagan and Quinn look at a book. It might be a pop-up Star Trek book, but I'm not saying. I don't know if I want my geek to show quite that much.
