TV depravation, day three

I don't know that keeping the TV off is actually making me more productive.

Yesterday, the call of the TV was getting very loud, so it was a good thing that zen_raven found me about 1 PM, and we headed off to the movies. R met up with us for Harry Potter, and it was cool watching it with him. It drives raven nuts when I make comments during a movie, but R doesn't mind at all, and in fact makes ones of his own, so it's all good.

We went out to Champp's after the movies, which was good food and amazing deserts. Then we tripped across the street to Best Buy so Raven could buy her hard drive, to put new OS on it, and the library software on it, making for borrowing books from her easier for her to keep track of.

I'm wondering if I'm getting sick -- all through Harry Potter, and dinner afterwards, my knees ached. I even took some Aleve and Ibuprofen and the aching didn't go away.

I ended up reading until midnight or so, and then slept in until noon. I hardly ever sleep this much, which makes me wonder if I'm not fighting something, so I dosed myself up with Zicam, and now I'm thinking about going back to sleep.

Alas, so much for being productive, eh?

I love the smell of bread baking -- why don't I use my breadmaker more often?

I've also got Lemon Blueberry AND cranberry-orange muffins all baked, too.

Chocolate Chip Bread

1 package yeast
3 cups bread flower
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
4 Tbsp soft butter
1 egg
1 cup room temp. milk
1/4 c. water, room temp
1 c. chocolate chips (frozen preferrably, to get that ooey gooey bite into a lump o' chocolate taste)

Put ingredients into bread maker in order your breadmaker prefers, and start up the basic cycle.

Excellent with peanut butter. Yum.
