Are You Certain?

These came in on a cart this morning, right next to each other. Different authors, but same publisher. For those who can't see the pic, the titles are A Certain Truth and An Uncertain Dream.

A Disturbing Find

utterz-image
I was looking at the foundation of our duplex tonight and I discovered this. It looks like it was a dog who either crawled under and couldn't get out or (creepier yet) was inside the forms when the concrete was poured

The 27-hour Bread

utterz-image
I wanted to try Alton Brown's Dutch Oven bread from this season of Good Eats. The recipe calls for 19 hours of room-temp rest before pulling the dough together. Unfortunately, it didn't say to check the consistency during that time. It turned out to be far too soupy, and I had to spend quite a bit of time adding flour and letting it rest before I could continue. In the end, the crust and crumb were beautiful, but it didn't have the depth of flavor I'd hoped for.

Apologies

Sorry about the rash of reposts. The service I use to post from my phone (Utterz.com) also has a landline phone # associated with it, and I accidentally sent my last three posts there instead of the e-mail addy. Oops!

The moth I spotted on Monday is still on our door, and has gained a companion. Little baby moths can't be far behind! [Attempting repost. Originally sent on 7/17/2008]

A Big 'Un

utterz-image
I came home tonight to see this enormous moth on our front doorjamb. It looked to me like it had recently left its chrysalis and was drying its wings. The flash photo washes out the colors, but it was the most beautiful dusky orange, and at least 2.5" long.

We stopped by the playground after Kim's birthday dinner tonight. The boys had a great time. They play so well together!

Exercise

utterz-image
An after-dinner constitutional tonight. About an hour and 10 minutes. The pace was leisurely, but my burden was far from light, especially at the end when LB got tired.

Nature, red in tooth and claw

Just after a viewing of Over The Hedge, we had our own suburban nature encounter, meeting a box turtle in Grandpa's backyard. (Apologies if this is a repost. Received error on first send.)

I'm starting the sleeves for my seamless raglan sweater, doing them simultaneously on one 40" circular, Magic Loop style.
