accomplishing things

It was hot today. Blech. I did get in a walk with the doggies before it got steamy. I got a fair bit of writing in and finished the third chapter on the proposal I’m working on. Now I need to revise and put together the synopsis. Tomorrow. Not looking forward to it. I don’t have enough details on a particular thorny plot line, but hopefully I’ll get it all worked out tomorrow. I rather like a fair bit of what I wrote today. But at the same time, I wonder if it’s total crap. It’s a very odd situation to be in.

Other than that, we took a family picture for the girlie’s project. I printed one to hang up too. Oddly enough, we don’t really have any family shots of all of us together. Usually either me or the man is behind the camera. So I put it in a frame and now there is a family picture. Yay for us! Maybe we’ll do a proper one with all of us looking nice with combed hair. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Ordered my grain mill finally. I want to try making breads from fresh ground flour. I miss baking and I want to get back into it. Hopefully it’s not just a silly lark. I need to figure out where I can unground wheat locally. So far not having a lot of luck.

If you get north as far as the south end of Portland, you might try Bob's Red Mill. They're in Milwaukie, a bit north of Sunnyside and Clackamas.
Hi! Great to have you delurking! I didn't realize they sold in bulk. Or more than a pound or two. I'll have to go check the place out.

I am in this situation all the time; I sort of consider it being a writer :)
I keep hoping I get over it. Past it. Beyond it.

Market of Choice up here has wheat and a grinder in their store, along with a selection of fresh ground flours and oats. The wheat flour I bought last week was Tilth rated and local.
I didn't realize they had the bulk wheat in more than the small packages they sell in the grocery stores. I'm going to have to come up and check them out.
You might see if there's a Whole Foods near by. If they don't have what you want, they'll order a 25# bag.
No Whole Foods around here. There is a Natural Foods. Wonder if they have or order?
