Good things in June.

I’ve got four or five drafts that have been percolating but just aren’t ready yet. The week got away from me, this last week of June. I was doing too much waiting and not enough living. Except for the part where we went to see Eclipse at midnight. Just because we could. You’re not really living until you see werewolves and vampires fighting. At two in the morning. What I’m saying is, I should be back to posting more regularly next week, and thanks to those of you who checked up on me.

June 13 – Wedding at church.
June 14 – I made four plates at pottery. Four plates! In one night! And used up most of the rest of my clay.

June 17 – Pool and a nap (at the pool).
June 18 – Pool and Tim Riggins. (See how the decompression works?)
June 19 – Ran errands and then hung out with friends at the pool.
June 20 – Ikea with my mom. I bought a bookcase. One can never have too many bookcases.

June 23 – I watched an entire soccer game, which the US won in the 91st minute.

June 25 – Lunch with my longest friend and her husband. And then we bought a dresser on Craigslist. And then float night! A good day.
June 26 – I watched another soccer game, which we did not win. But! I at least am improving myself. And then we went to a surprise party and there was night swimming.
June 27 – Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with my friend who had never seen it before. Great fun times quoting the lines obnoxiously.
June 28 – Lunch with an old friend. At Zaytoon’s.
June 29 – Lunch and shopping and frozen yogurt with my Aunt Nancy. And then I finished The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest and then we went to the midnight showing of Eclipse with some friends.
June 30 – We ordered Chinese food, finished season two of Friday Night Lights, and went to bed early because of the previous night’s escapades.

  4. @Hannah Faith: I will link it for anyone else who wants it! It’s here. I doubled it this time and we made three pizzas (though it probably could have made four, we made one that had pork barbecue on top so it was better to have it be sturdy).

    Also, I made it the day before and let it rise both times, then put it in the fridge. The advice I got was that pizza dough is often better given that extra time. So if you wanted to make it ahead of time, it shouldn’t be a problem.
