Looks just fine to me.  :-)

Yes, I'm a manual baker and I know there are others on the list.

Certainly!  I do this all the time.  I just mix the flour, yeast and 
other dry ingredients, then add in the liquids, and knead, adjusting the 
moisture as necessary.  I usually shape the bread into small rolls, but 
you can make it into a loaf, either freeform or in a pan.  A 1-1/2 pound 
bread machine recipe should make 1 standard loaf in an 8-1/2" x 4-1/2"
