It's a wet and wild morning, and I'm grateful I won't have to bike far with a loaded trailer or set up a tent outside in defiance of the weather. Inside the Market Depot it's cozy and bright, even on the grayest days.
This is a good day to spend indoors with a pot of soup simmering on the stove and the weather beating at the windows. Even better if you take a long walk or two in the rain for contrast so that when you step back into your warm home and out of your boots and foul weather gear you feel a bubbling of gratitude, with perhaps just a fizz of smug satisfaction, to have it so good.
For you at the market today I have a smorgasbord of rye: Mountain, Smoky Vollkornbrot, and a Normandy-inspired loaf made with hard cider. Also on the table: Red & White, gingerbread, apple cake (with a touch of rye), scones, malted chocolate chip, bittersweet, and brown butter shortbread cookies, and a new batch of granola for all who missed it last week.
Time to suit up and ride out into this fine morning.
See you soon.
