I don’t want to be dramatic, but I would simply die if that couple who moved to New York and started documenting their new “being a New Yorker” lives with daily vlog uploads were to stop documenting their new “being a New Yorker” lives with daily vlog uploads.

The couple—a.k.a., Ava Gardy and Daren Girdner, a dancer and video editor who left Los Angeles for the Big Apple late last year, per Curbed—has been steadily posting ‘tok after ‘tok, seemingly without missing a single day. They’re currently up to 81, though it doesn’t appear to have been easy for them. On Friday, they posted “Day 80,” which features Girdner looking kind of bummed. “I’m just not feeling very inspired,” he says under a mask. “I think I’m just creatively drained.”

And yet...he posted! Inspiration for us all or at least for me, personally.

Did you make anything this week? Bread was in heavy rotation over here this week, probably because we had two “snow days” this week, so three hour video meeting with breaks? Make a cute little focaccia, just right for two, to go with spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. I baked it in a small cake pan lined with parchment paper, just because I didn’t feel like cleaning the cake pan afterward.

I also continued on with my “perfect” baguette project, these ones tasted great, and had a great crumb, but the shaping wasn’t great. Well, the shaping was fine, just the moving from counter to rising place, from rising spot to baking tray, they ended up a bit lumpy bumpy.

And if anyone is interested, king arthur baking is having a virtual bread baking contest, you can win up to $300 dollars worth of baking materials, and virtual baking classes. The winner is going to be picked at random, so you don’t have to be a perfect baker! https://www.kingarthurbaking.com/contests I’ve already got the cinnamon star bread recipe down.

Just edited to add: I don’t work for King Arthur or anything, I just thought some people might like to join in.
