I have been ridiculously tired lately. I hope whatever this is passes. Goodness. I had the hardest time getting started today. Once I did though…I was on fire. Well, at least a slow blaze, simply because around 4:30 I laid down on the couch and passed out. Goodness.
Anyway, on Tuesdays and Thursdays i make public transportation my primary form of transportation. We are a one car household now, which is actually really working for us! Despite my really tired stupor, I managed to kick start myself with a mocha frappuccino light. I used this clarity of mind to figure out a way to be dropped off in front of my bank instead of four blocks away. Yes, I am smarter then the Metro website. I’ve been going back and forth in regards to whether or not I should buy new shoes. Today it was a not so I went grocery shopping instead. Today was the day I finally buckled down and bought bread flour and yeast to make pizza dough and Italian rustic bread. The hardest part of making pizza dough was getting 1/2 cup of water to 110 degrees. It was a ridiculously easy process, especially using my standing mixer. I will never buy store bought pizza dough ever again. Italian rustic bread is more time intensive. The sponge is doing its thing tonight (rising?) and I have to take it out to warm up 7 hours before I make the dough for the bread tomorrow. I just popped in to the oven banana bread. Note: melted is not the same as softened. I used softened butter, not melted butter so we’ll see how this turns out. I’m hoping it will be amazing. I oiled and wrapped and froze two loaves of the pizza dough and used the third for tonight’s pizza: Italian sausage, red pepper and red onion. Note: while buying a block of cheese is cheaper then a shredded bag of cheese…its a pain in the ass to shred.
I can’t wait to try the banana bread. It will be warm and perfect with ice cream. If the exhaustion continues into tomorrow then I’m going to start keeping a diary of what i eat and drink and do to try to figure out what the culprit is.
