Sunday Update - Week 22

Yep, totally forget it was going to be Sunday today until after I'd already been up for a while.  Not an auspicious start to the day.  So, here goes nothing...

Still no writing.  Thinking about writing happened, but no words were put on paper.  I did get some edits inputted, though.  Not a lot, mind you, but it's a start.  I also didn't do much in the way of marketing, but I did set up a sale with advertising for later this month. 

I read a bit, but didn't finish much. 

Gah, what did I do with an entire week? 

I did manage 5 out of 7 days with activity of some sort.  Mostly walking, along with some weeding and cleaning.  No weight loss, but that's expected this week because it's shot time again.  At least that's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it. 

I did make a pizza.  I think I have the crust part down now.  (See below)  I also made BBQ ribs.  Yummers.

The deer are starting to come back un-pregnant.  Should start seeing fawns soon.  :fingers crossed:  A friend up in Michigan already posted pics of a doe with her fawn.  Totally jealous.  But we figured out that does drop their fawns earlier in Michigan than here, probably due to the fact that up there fawns have to be old enough by winter to survive the harshness.  Just educated guesses on our part, but it sounds reasonable.

And I think that's it for me this week.  I feel totally boring, but that's the way life goes sometimes.  What's up in your world?


Pizza Crust

2 tsp quick yeast
¾ cups warm water (separated ¼ and ½ cups)
2 ½ cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 T EV olive oil
¼ - ½ cup flour for dusting
1 T EV olive oil
1 T melted butter

Place yeast in a small bowl.  Add ¼ cup of the water.  Stir to get all the yeast granules wet.  Let sit.  In a large bowl, sift together flour and salt.  Make a well in the center.  Add yeast mixture.  Put remaining water into yeast bowl and stir around to get all the yeasty goodness.  Add to flour well.  Add olive oil to well.  With your fingers, mix wet ingredients into dry from center until totally incorporated.  Knead dough in bowl for 7 minutes, dusting with flour occasionally to keep it from sticking to your hands.  Put 1 T olive oil in the bottom of a clean large bowl, and rub it all over the inside of the bowl.  Place dough ball into oiled bowl, turning to get the ball oiled.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise for one hour in a warm place – should double in size.  Turn dough onto lightly floured surface.  Using your hands, push dough (flipping occasionally) into flat, circular shape roughly the size of your pizza pan.  Place onto pan lightly spritzed with cooking spray, pushing until it’s the right size and shape, and has a thicker outer crust band.  Brush crust band with melted butter.  Top with stuff.  Bake in preheated 475F oven until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly in the center.


  1. Uhg. Sunday already?

    Started on 1869. A milestone -- Yay!

    Wishing us all a productive week. Please!

  2. There was a Sunday? The weekend just sort of bled together. And it's Monday. Ugh. New week. New chance to get back to it. Or else. *sigh*
