I met with the Ladies this morning. Not at my place… my apartment gets too stifling in the summer to have people over. Packing 6-10 more people in here at high temperatures… well, it’s not a pretty thought. So we met at the church office instead, and it was great to see them all again.
Then I came home. Cooked the turkey pot pie I’ve been meaning to make. Did my workout. Had the pot pie and got the rest put away in single-serving units (to try to keep some kind of portion control in place when the sheer yumminess tries to overwhelm).
I also got the BOX of information from Oklahoma on things to do and see when I go. I perused and chilled out and intermixed tunes with movies for the afternoon.
And now I have no-knead bread setting to rise. It’s 1/3 whole wheat flour, and some herbs worked in for good measure. By morning I should have some idea of whether it’s actually rising (the yeast was not QUITE as bubbly as I’d like) and by this time tomorrow I should be pulling fresh homemade bread out of the oven.
Which leaves me very conflicted. Because I really want it to hurry up and be tomorrow evening. And I really don’t want to hurry Sunday evening along.
I’ll get over it. All in all I had a nice little Saturday.
I hope you’re having a good weekend!
