monday: today i spent the day making the chart to show the connections in the velvet photo album. as i was doing it i realized that the only painting that i had included a pair of people, needed to be on opposite sides of the chart. so a do over for today.

jake went to the store and bought self-rising flour, it was all they had left. i had never used it so today i made soda bread with it. i also have watched the great british baking show: master class and followed paul hollywood’s directions for kneading and cutting it. it’s the prettiest one yet.
