Riding Home in the Dark
Late afternoon, nine hours into Friday’s bake, I pulled the last of the bread and pastry out of the oven and thought, Ah, well, that wasn’t so bad after all. As I slid loaves onto the cooling rack I daydreamed about biking home under the open sky, about laying under the pine tree in the backyard in the golden light of evening, breathing in the day, about a good dinner. And then, of course, the bag stamping, label cutting, product bagging, label sticking, box packing, washing, sweeping, mopping, and wiping down took another six hours, and I was so tired riding home in the dark I forgot to look for stars.
Still, it was a good day. A good bake, too, as you’ll find out soon enough when you come to market!
See you soon.
