Cleaning up the kitchen just now - at 12:37 am - I was reminded why I started night baking in the first place. The air coming in through the kitchen window is clear and cool and refreshing. And it's silent. Not a car driving by, not a cricket chirping... nada. Bliss.
Unfortunately, everyone's asleep, so I'll have to wait until morning to show them my latest creation. That's okay. It'll keep.
