My friend, my sourdough starter

Meet my new friend, Greta Carbo.

Like the rest of Shut-In America, apparently, I’m attempting to create a sourdough starter. I wasn’t sure Greta was going anywhere after I mixed her yesterday (first photo); then after dinner tonight, I went back into the home office — the warmest room in the house, where I keep her — and found she has almost doubled in size (second photo).

I am weirdly excited about this.
