Westminster

We are nearing the end of our 8 month study on the Westminster Confession. This was the first time we used the upstairs smoking lounge at the church (ie, the terrace). The weather dipped a bit tonight which required long sleeves.

Choir practice!

We had our first ever choir practice yesterday. Daniel is a great instructor and it seems we might even be able to sing well. We are preparing for December so we can sing some xmas hymns.

Sequence…

Asael and Lupita came over on Friday for dinner and some Sequence action. Needless to say, I am always victorious.

Free day!

Sundays are our free day from dietary restrictions. My first choice is always steak and potatoes. So good.

Espuma

Yun and I visited a bar downtown last night that offered an impressive array of local and national artisan beers. I even found a nice sour.

Tennis

I played tennis yesterday for the first time in over 10 years. I played with a neighbor and a friend that are my age. I also haven’t had this much exercise in the last 10 years either. I nearly died.

Representing 6

Last week we went to Tucson to visit and for a dinner of all PCA pastors in the city. The photo above represents 6 reformed churches. Good times. Good food. Good wine. Good smokes.

Pain Rustique with chili piquin

Made some legit loaves of spicy bread today. The temperatures have radically reduced here and the highs have been mostly in the 80s. That makes baking significantly easier when the temperature in the house is as low as it is these days.

A few weeks back I ordered a large deck oven, a 20 liter mixer, and a proofing fridge. None of which has been delivered, but at least the mixer has arrived to Hermosillo and I hope to get it delivered to the house this week. The proofing fridge will make controlling temperatures much less of a battle. And the deck oven will allow me to bake 12 to 16 loaves at a time, rather than the single loaves I’m currently capable of doing with our house oven (45 minutes per loaf). The new deck oven also gets substantially hotter (700 farenheit) which will be a nice upgrade.
