Reading: No reading this weekend. Proceed to "Gardening" to find out why.

Eating: Home-made (or "Ho-made" as they say in Door County WI) Pizza. Betty Crocker once again! Crust: disolve 1 pkg yeast in 1 C. warm water. Stir in 2 1/2 C. flour, 2 T. olive oil, 1 t. sugar and 1 t. salt. Also I like to sprinkle in a little Italian Seasoning (I have some from Pampered Chef but I think other companies make it too). Beat vigorously 20 strokes. Let it rest after the beating for 5 minutes. In the meantime, preheat oven and pizza stone (you do have a pizza stone, don't you?) to 425 degrees. Knead dough slightly and roll out onto pizza stone. Sauce: 1 can tomato sauce (the little one, however many ounces that is) mixed with 2 T. Italian Seasoning. Top with your favorite toppings and lots of mozzarella. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly. Yum!

Gardening: We spent all day Saturday (10am until 9pm) outside working. Eric hauled another load of rocks to the compost/yard waste site. We removed the top layer of sand/clay from along the house, between driveway and steps. We "garden clawed" the compacted soil and removed stray stones. We weeded. We purchased and planted 3 shrubs (2 Ivory Halo Dogwood and 1 Bird's Nest Spruce). We topped it all off with good black dirt. We watered. We purchased and placed 5 bags of cypress mulch. Eric covered the remaining pile of dirt with tarps (it was supposed to rain). We took much needed showers and collapsed into bed.

Sunday, we went to a movie.
