DIY in the making

this is what the pack should look like when it gets here ....
But not what it will look like when I'm done with it.

I plan on having some fun with these.. and revamping my yellow friend 

You shall see :) 

Mam, your shoes are untied.

I just want to be a professional philanthropist and get paid for being one.

Is that too much to ask?

There are sometimes in your life when you want to chuck a book out the window of your car, or off the Empire State Building, or or into a giant lake.

Then there are other times that you just want to whip out your favorite blanket, pry open a book, smell its pages, feel the creases in the cover and the dog-eared pages and just read it in one sitting.

A man I really love once said, "There are no such things as immoral or moral books; books are simply well written or badly written that is all."

Directional Thinking

Has the thought ever occurred to you that we think in directions?

Think something up.
Thinking something over.
Think it through.
To be thought out.
Think back.

Think nothing.
Think nothing of it.
Think big.
Think out-loud.
Think again.
Think for oneself.

All in all, think the unthinkable.

Homemade pizza

Homemade Pizza!

2 T Yeast
3 T Sugar
2 Cups Warm Water
3 T oil
1 t salt
6 cups flour

mix first 3 ingredients. (let sit for 5 min to activate yeast) 
Add oil and salt, then mix in flour one cup at a time.
Knead the dough to make sure it is thoroughly mixed, but careful not to knead too much.
Cover and let rise.
Turn on oven to 425 with pizza stone in the oven for at least 20 min before cooking pizza.
Dough should have doubled in size. Separate into 2-3 balls. 
2 balls = thick crust 3 balls = thin crust.
Roll pizza out onto parchment paper and add whatever toppings you desire! Place on pizza stone and cook for 18 minutes or until golden brown on the edges of the dough.

My favorite toppings are artichoke hearts, basil, tomatoes and wingers amazing sauce (not in that triple combination, but they are just amazing flavors)
