Two loaves of sourdough
Mixed: 10:30 pm
Molded: noon, next day
Baked: 2:15 pm
Gave one loaf to Mr. Daly, the art teacher and SURFING supervisor at Providence Hall
I love Santa Barbara. There aren’t many places on this planet where your son (that’s my son, above) can attend a college prep high school that also offers surfing as an elective.
Mr. Daly teaches fine art, but also takes the kids out to play beach volleyball and surf. It was great to hand him a loaf of sourdough yesterday; he, in his flip flops and surf trunks… Mr. Daly is just like Providence Hall, a crossroads between formal, even Classical education, and the modern and informal surf and skate culture that our kids live in today…
Anyway, summer is almost here. In TWO WEEKS I’m going to write, and bake, and take the kids to the beach. I’m going to pray, and grow tomatoes, and have barbecues in the backyard. I’m going to let the kids sleep in a little, then take them to the library, and to the bookstore, and finally, allow them to curl up and read for hours on end.
What about you? Do you have plans for the summer? Tomato plants already started? Hopes to travel somewhere near or far?
Or maybe…a series of surf lessons lined up for here in Santa Barbara?
If so, the barbecue is waiting and we’re inviting!
