Random Reason to Rejoice #6

The days when the bread turns out just right.

The dough is happy--warm, smooth, and elastic. Not too soft, not too heavy.
The rising loaves are nicely domed and equal in size.
The completed loaves are pretty outside and moist inside.
They even smell better on the good days.
Homemade bread is always good, but sometimes it's near perfect.
On those days, I pat my babies and give a little sigh of contentment.

Those look so yummy! I love bread. Btw, I'm an old friend of Dave's from Fleming County, living in VA near DC now.

I like your writing It's cozy and warm.
