1 1/2 tbs dry active yeast (is it really advisable to use the non active stuff?)
1 1/2 tbs kosher salt
3 cups lukewarm water
3 1/2 cups wheat pastry flour
3 cups white flour
Mix it all up and let it sit on your counter for about 2 hours. Punch the dough down again with a little kneading, and let rise again for another 2 or so hours. Punch down and knead and place in bread pan or whatever you would like to bake it all up in, and let rise again to desired height (another 2 or so hours). At this point those little yeasties have worked purty hard and should make a lovely bread. Bake @ 350 for about 45 minutes.

Today has been spent tying up loose ends and crunching numbers and making multiple trips to the bank. I know. It would be so much easier if I did all my maths first, but I like to keep stashing little bits of cash away at a time. Ha! Soon I will be toddling down to the bookstore to sell them some old books, and if I can't control myself (which is totally probable) I will come home with some more. Sshhh...Don't tell G.

Can we just talk about how freakin cute this bird is for a sec? As in, fit in the palm of your hand? Or ride around in your pocket to stare up at you with those big eyes to say "Yes I know you want to go to Hogwarts....You're purty." See?! Cutest thing ever.
This little guy is a Saw-Whet Owl. And I have to have one. So I can then start wearing cowboy shirts with breast pockets and let him live there.
And I would name him Peter. Or Mable. Yes....Mable.....

I also applied for Bust's Spring Fling Craftacular in Brooklyn. Ha! If I actually make it in I will be beyond myself with 'holy shit.' A new system will have to be thought of. Much more inventory stocked. And a garden dress. I will need a new garden dress and some white gloves. kthnxbai.

1 3/4 cups flour (I use wheat, but whatevs)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup honey
3 whole mashed 'nanas
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups blueberries.
Stir and drop into your muffin pans. This recipe makes enough for a pan of the full size and a pan of the minis (because 8 minis are equivalent to a regular one right? Don't judge me). 350* for approx 15 minutes. What does that all spell? Love and deliciousness.
*le sigh* Now pass the muffins before someone gets hurt.

Quick recap: I have digestive issues (uh huh), and can be very stubborn. I would die planting my flag for a cause I felt strongly about.....and I have quite a few stars on my hands. Stars mean magic *squeal* I am just realizing my 'spiritual' path and will eventually be a teacher on that path. I have had 3 pregnancies, only one of which I knew about (a miscarriage not so long ago)....and will have 2 children. And I am decendent from royalty.
So of course I had to check this all out with my favorite medium, and that was equally as world rockingly awesome! In short: I am not decendant from royalty, I was royalty. Most likely Atlantean which is why I am so drawn to the Mystery School - Merlin was the last of the Atlanteans. She also said (without any prompting or knowing about my palm) that I just started on a new path and I would eventually be a teacher. Hot damn! And while making a long tube with her hands, asked if I had unusual pets. Yup. And did they poop a lot? Yup. That I am like them in that I have no use for things or people that do nothing for me and thus poop them out. Ha! Not that I'm a user, but I'm not the person to make small talk and go out to eat if we have nothing in common and we aren't going to be bffs. Ha!
The new jewelry did well. My readings f'en rocked. And I can once again focus on getting the jewelry buttoned up as my 3 months in the bead store are finally over. Hot damn! It's all too exciting!!! And I'm sure I'm officially queen of the dorks but I don't care. Because remember - I was a queen.

So now I'm full of a foot long ham and american cheese on wheat bread and gobs of lettuce sub....and starting to feel a bit human again. Though I might need some sort of pokey device to put my eyeballs back in if they do indeed fall out. It's totally a possibility.
EDIT: Yeah, I totally yarked that sub up 2 hours later.

Maybe I'm overreacting. But I don't think that's acceptable. What would they say if I said things had slowed down and we need their money more than a blood transfusion? Would they buy something that they weren't going to buy anyway? Probably not. So it doesn't matter.
For the record things are fine. It's Alaska in the winter, and we have just recently crossed into the more than 6 hours of daylight category. So no wonder people aren't shoving money in anyone's face right now - they are too busy being glued to their SAD lights and just trying to make it through a gloomy, cold winter. Who could blame them?
So help me out here. Do you think it's ok to ask strangers about their business? B is my baby. Though most certainly not in the literal sense, I have put just as much blood, sweat, tears and hard earned cash into her as any parent with one or 20 children. I'm very protective of people who nay say her, or feel that can comment on that which they don't know......so pat me on the shoulder or tell me to pull my head out of my ass. Either way, what do you think?
