Still jet lagging

Slow, quiet activities - just what the doctor ordered. They're helping me ease back into Eastern Standard Time. Our Aotearoa visit was wonderful, but man oh man, my body clock has taken forever to get back in sync, and I have felt all over the place. Anyway, this is what I've been up to:


Restoring this old cool thing, which I'll be talking about more at a later date.


Watching bread rise


Baking bread is very therapeutic. This particular loaf took 18 hours to rise. Let me tell you it is SO worth it. You can find the recipe here.


Best of all, lots of this...good for what ails ya :)

That bread looks soooo good. Like, seriously. You have no idea. I've given up bread for the moment, and that bread looks killer.

Jodi said...

Thank you, Brandee. It IS killer. Why have you given up bread?

Keep resting!
Read nice books!
Bake bread and take tea!
You can't hurry your body.

Of course you have paint tubes next to your Bible and journals. Why wouldn't you? Take care of yourself, friend.

Cheryl said...

I noticed the paint tubes! Not many people would combine the two. Your bread looks so good. I think I'd be happy to wait as long as it takes too. Intrigued by your doing-up project. Look forward to seeing the end product. Hope your body catches up soon.

Val + the Girls- BK +CK said...

Oh dear ..it takes time doesn't it!

I can't beat Margaretha's advice :0)

Sending you good wishes and hope you feel better soon!

Jodi said...

Margaretha and Val, thanks for the advice. I heartily agree. You are kind.

Jodi said...

Cheryl, can't wait to show the doing-up project. It was a Christmas present, and it's VERY cool.

Nan-girl, <3

i can't wait to hear more about that ole thing you're fixing up!
Visiting you is good for the soul. :)

Kim said...

So glad to see you are well, just this morning, I was wondering how you were. I love slow, and quiet, and look for moments like those, I am much better for them! I love the gorgeous wood on the cool old thing....can't wait !

Joy Lake said...

Come back, then you won't have to readjust ;D

Tiago Braga said...

good photos, and good post as well

Nancy said...

Well I could get on your program and I have not been flying from miles away....The bread looks heavenly and I must try your receipt....Have fun regrouping....

What an amazing bread recipe...Maybe I'll try this someday, though I try not to eat too much bread. But when I have lived in Europe, it is so so good! I try not to eat too many carbs because they really are not good for my metabolism. I can feel it right away.

Jodi said...

Hey Kim, nice to hear from you again. Thanks for stopping by. I'm supposing you don't have a blog - otherwise I would come and visit it. :)

deb colarossi said...

see ..I had a feeling the trip would take a toll ..
hope my prayers help.

The bread looks incredible. I have to admit that because I try mostly gluten free I haven't made bread (other than pizza dough ) in so long..
I make meat of every sort and am mostly vegetarian so that counts too, no ?
sigh..
you always inspire.

You are walking breathing art.

Connie Smiley said...

That bread looks simply delicious! I might have to try it. Thanks for the recipe.

Jodi - Oh goodness yes, I am definitely going to take the leap, and start a blog. I am busy preparing for my youngest,twins,to graduate in 2 months, and trying to make all the plans for that big day! Having been home and raising 5 kiddos for the last 30 years, I will have a wee bit more time to invest in becoming technological and mastering a blog. I am excited!

Jodi said...

Kim, that's great! I'll look forward to visiting when you get set up.

Amy said...

You're always up to such fun stuff. That's a good way to welcome you back from your travels, along with a bit of rest. Bible + Journal = wonderful.

Emily said...

I hope you feel better too. That's a long trip to recover from. But baking bread and working on projects - what is that, a gorgeous antique chalkboard? I LOVE IT - sounds like a god way to rest :)

Rayanne said...

I'm with you "Baking bread is very therapeutic". I love to kneed the bread, I've tried a bread machine and I just was sad, it's not the same at all. I can work out all kinds of things just making bread :)
Hope you feel like yourself real soon, I do understand how jet lag makes you feel. Blessings, friend!
