only change i might make is to make 2 pizza's out of it cause I like more of a thin crust
-2 1/2 cups flour ( half whole wheat)
-1 tbsp. instant yeast
-1 cup warm water
-2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. sugar
-1 tsp. salt
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a spoon. Knead in 1/2 cup flour if needed. Form in to a ball. Cover and let rise for 20-30 minutes. Spread dough on to a greased pizza pan.
Add toppings and bake for 25 min or until crust is browned

went searching in Dad's bins again. Found some sweet magazines from 1951 that I'm sure I"ll find some use for.
Also, found a small wooden ladder (pretty sure it was from some old bunk beds) that I think I"ll use for a towel rack such as this:
besides my recent bin finds the good news is the Linden move seems to fit with my heart and I have fewer panick attacks than I thought I would. I'm having fun finding furniture and sanding and painting and dreaming up our house... so excited to see what it looks like.
As I settle into the peacefulness of the 'country life' I'm inspired by a quote Mike gave me recently:
"I have lived through much, and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbour - such is my idea of happiness. And then, on the top of all that, for you a mate, and children, perhaps - what more can the heart of man desire?"
-Leo Tolstoy - Family Happiness
I feel like there is a whole lot to say but I'm tired and happy so I'll stop here.
