Today I made my first totally homemade pizza! Yes, I am 57 years old and for the first time ever made pizza sauce and the crust from scratch! Thanks to my friend Jenny of Planner Perfect for this amazing recipe. Also thank you to Jenny for inspiring and challenging us in our Project Me online group. Love this group where we are learning to care and nurture ourselves, refueling the body and soul.
Ok, here we go!
cooking sausage for Dan's side of the pizza
fresh mushrooms, always the best!
ready for the oven
I think I did it!
I have to say it is very yummy!
The recipe make a generous amount of sauce,
so I divided what was leftover into a few Ziploc
freezer bags and put them in the freezer
for future pizza days.
Hi friends! It has been a while since I have posted here on the blog, but most of you see what's happening in my life on Facebook or Twitter, right?
Today I am sharing about something that has changed my day to day life and made it more fun and exciting. A few months ago I somehow came across the fabulous Jenny Penton of Planner Perfect and Designs by Planner Perfect. Jenny teaches woman how to script their lives, to write a better story, a story you want to live! It is living with purpose, with intent...using talents and gifts that God has given us. Praying and dreaming the life we want. Check out Jenny's website, her book, her videos. You WILL be inspired and encouraged no matter what stage of life you are in. Until I met Jenny, I had the mindset that I was old (ugh) and beyond being creative, past writing a better story. I know better now, thank you Jenny for reminding me that I still have goals and dreams to fulfill! Please check out her website, I can not properly describe how awesome it is!
Now, for my friends who are already using the Planner Perfect method or are interested and maybe you aren't a young Mom anymore, maybe you are a grandma, a widow, a retiree, etc. Guess what? Well, I am part of that group. I am a grandma, praise God! I am married to my best friend Dan, who is retired. I guess you can say I am retired too since I was a stay at home Mom and we are empty nesters now.
At the beginning of my planning I wasn't sure how much I would write in my books everyday. In general we have a routine but since we are retired and no kids at home, life can be unpredictable and spontaneous. So far, I haven't filled all the pages each month. So, I use the left over pages for memories. I put photos, written memories, mementos, ticket stubs, etc. on these pages.
I LOVE decorating my pages. I experiment with watercolor, acrylic, stamps, stickers, washi tape, etc, Fun, fun, fun! Jenny has fabulous videos on decorating our notebooks. I will blog again, hopefully soon, about my journey with Planner Perfect and scripting my life. Maybe, I will get brave and make a video!
On another note...
We have been super busy and blessed with family and time at our cottage. God is good! More about our new grandson in another post. Stay tuned.....
