This weekend's bread was honey wheat. It came out very nice. I got a fantastic bounce on baking. For the plot luck on Saturday (Parents of Young Children), I baked snickerdoodles. They came out a bit hard while I prefer mine a bit chewier. I also made pot pie crust for Jenny, which came out a tad dry. Rolling out a tad dry is quite annoying.

I'm off Facebook for a while. I couldn't stand the anxiety any more. The whole platform has descended into noise for me. Where once I actually heard about what people were up to, now there's little to nothing. There's just no amount of good that seems to counterbalance the bed. I can't fix the political stress, but I can fix the social stress. Sometimes I click on the tab out of habit, but the link isn't there now. One week free and I'm still stress.

I'm a good way through Interview with a Vampire and have found it surprisingly engaging. Don't worry, though, I won't become a teenage vampire wanna-be.

I'm a good way through Fallout 4. I've found 99% of all locations. I'm completing quests now and getting back to the storyline. Right now, I'm wading through the Roalroad. The best part of any Fallout remains the early game where you don't know what's going on. I find wandering about with Dogmeat and poking about ruins on a sunny day rather soothing.
