last home delivery

Cress Spring Bakery Home Delivery for April 9

Hello friends,

The end is near. This will be our last home delivery of the season, and Saturday will be the last indoor market. The outdoor market will begin on Saturday, April 16, and I hope to see you all there. I've truly enjoyed bringing fresh bread to your homes - the personal connections I have with so many of you is the best thing about this gig. When we first started our home delivery service, it was small enough that I knew everyone. As it's grown, I find myself delivering to many of you whom I've never met. If you're among the anonymous strangers I know only as a name and address, feel free to introduce yourself at the market! 

Although we receive an overwhelming amount of positive feedback, I'm sure we don't please everyone all the time, and in our ongoing efforts to improve our business, it's often the dissatisfied customers who provide the most valuable insight. To that end, I want to encourage any complaints, criticisms, grumbles, groans, gripes, grievances, protests, laments, wails, gnashing of teeth, or accusations that you might have about our delivery service, our products, our quotations, our general disposition, anything at all. This is your chance. Let us have it, don't hold back. And, as always, if anyone wishes to be removed from this list at any time, please let me know. 

Thanks to your generosity and support, we were able to donate $550 to Peace-Winds Japan last week. Thanks especially to those of you who added your own donations to the total.

The muffins available this week will be ginger spice and raspberry chocolate chip

The truffles available this week are: 
Dark Chocolate
Maple Ginger

You may order boxes of either variety, or mixed boxes. We will mix in whatever quantities you desire. Our truffles will last for several weeks if refrigerated, although for optimum flavor they should be eaten warm. We prefer to have truffle orders by Monday instead of Wednesday, but late orders will usually be accommodated. 

Our quotation of the week:
"We live in and through a complex interaction of spirit and matter, of the powers inside of us and the stuff “out there" in the world. External reality does not impinge upon us as an ultimate constraint: if we who are privileged find ourselves confined, it is only because we have conspired in our own imprisonment.

The spiritual traditions do not deny the reality of the outer world. They simply claim that we help make that world by projecting our spirit on it, for better or for worse. If our institutions are rigid, it is because our hearts fear change; if they set us in mindless competition with each other, it is because we value victory over all else; if they are heedless of human well-being, it is because something in us is heartless as well.

We can make choices about what we are going to project, and with those choices we help grow the world that is. Consciousness precedes being: consciousness, yours and mine, can form, deform, or reform our world. Our complicity in world-making is a source of awesome and sometimes painful responsibility—and a source of profound hope for change. It is the ground of our common call to leadership, the truth that makes leaders of us all."

- Parker J. Palmer
