Houston, we have sourdough.... [Aug. 21st, 2006|04:42 pm]
Verminius Rex
Some of the preferment that I let age in the fridge for a few days appears to have achieved sourdough status (or at least the proper sourdough smell). I added some rye flour (one ounce more than last time) and right now the dough is proofing in the oven with a pan of hot water. It may not be done in time for dinner, but it will certainly be ready for a late night snack and sandwiches tomorrow.

We had the roof looked at, and he's recommending that it be replaced. He gave the name of a roofer approved by our insurance who will actually do it for the estimate cost, and told me that our roof was about 14 years old (it should be less than ten based on what the previous owner told the realtor, but it doesn't suprise us too much that he lied.) So for a deductible that will be about the same cost as Kiyan's hospital stay, we get a much needed roof reshingled. Too bad the AC isn't covered the same way under our home owner's policy.

Pari had her first day back at preschool, and I found the perfect fabric for Marz and Pari's dress. Matching a burgundy fabric took a trip to Wal-Mart, Hancocks and finally the perfect color match at Hobby Lobby. So tonight after doing a few other necessary projects, I cut out Marz's bodice, and start planning the chemise and skirts.

They do have insurance programs for things like roofs, dishwashers, etc.

I don't remember where to get them, but most times when we bought a house the closing agent was trying to pimp them.
