Well, sometimes I am not very bright--my oven has a proof setting! I tried it.

The dough seemed to rise beautifully. I baked the focaccia and it turned out pretty good. I definitely need more practice.
We also keep a pretty cool house, low 60's, and I did not realize that it would still rise at that temp. Thank you to those who told me that yeast can rise at cool temps. I had no idea. I could just let it sit out on the counter to rise.
Thank you all for your answers!
