Plans for the kids having their portrait taken today was nixed by a very fussy Kiyan, who fell asleep close to 2pmand woke up very cranky half an hour later when we went to retrieve Pari. He continued to wail during Pari pickup, no way was I going to waste everyone's time trying to get their picture taken when he's out of sorts so I canceled the portrait studio appointment. Here's a picture of Kiyan from shortly before the screaming.|
And today's bread, two loaves of the typical wheat and flax meal. I did add some wheat germ, which seemed to make a dryer dough than usual, but they rose well enough. I did my tiger striped slashing again, which I think turned out pretty good in the pictures. I'll have to do something about my hydration if I keep up with the wheat germ addition. Probably less than an ounce more water would make the difference.

22 oz high gluten flour
