Day 68: "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth..."--Shakespeare

My baby girl came home for Thanksgiving break Saturday night! It was oddly appropriate somehow that I was shopping at the mothership when she got back in town. In fact, she surprised me by tracking me down in the store. And, of course, the first thing she said was, "what is that you're wearing?"

I was crushed. But I confess that I was looking a bit worse for wear. I'd spent all day hanging around the laptop and bookshelves cataloging books, and, late in the afternoon, decided to make homemade pizza for dinner. The mothership being the closest store, I threw on a Green Tea hoodie over my black shirt and jeans and drove there for a quick pepperoni and cheese trip. I looked very close to sloppy, I confess.

Still, my heart was broken in the produce section.

That's okay, though. I'm so excited to have her home, she could say anything and I wouldn't mind.


Lee 3/4 sleeve shirt: $7; Faded Glory jeans: $15; Green Tea dark blue hoodie (could have sworn it was black); $19; Dr. Scholl Athletic Mules: $20; Earrings: $7  Total: $68

Dull, serviceable outfit....

In the end, the pizza didn't happen. But I did have 3.5  cups of flour turning into dough at home. We went out for dinner, and when we got home, the dough was high, but it still had plenty of body.

So I made bread!

I don't put oil in my bread, but I do put a tbl of olive oil in pizza dough. It made the bread crust and its interior a bit more chewy. Came out very tasty--I've missed making bread.

Hope your week is full of good food and friends!


  1. Wow, that bread looks good! And I'm sure the outfit wasn't that bad. It sounds comfy! : )

  2. Hey, Carrie! I confess--the bread was pretty good. Though my DD ate most of it. But how much of a chance do I get to make her bread these days?
