Baking might become a passion

So my family is visiting this weekend and at the request of my grandmother, she wanted me to bake a pound cake. So at 10:00 pm, I commence to baking one from scratch. No box, just straight up sugar, sifted flour, eggs and other special ingredients.

The more that I do it, the more I am beginning to enjoy it. I didn't like to cook and really didn't have to cook when I was younger and living at home. But since I am on my own, I have found my real passion and hope to hone my skills.

What does that mean? That means that I know that my family will be taken care of, because with the basic ingredients of flour, sugar and eggs with a little extra, I can make sure all is fed. All closer to becoming a Proverbs 31 woman. I have a long way to go, but know that I am striving hard to make it happen.

Much love!!

A friendly reminder

Just want to say to my blogging friends as a "note to self." Please if you touch an onion, make sure that you don't use the same hand to rub your eyes. Just not a pretty look. LOL!!!

A long time again?

Well I am back after my 4+ month hiatus. So much has changed, some not, but all for the better.

First of all, I had another celebration of life in the early part of May. I turned 32 and even though it was kind of low key, I enjoyed my day.

Secondly I moved to another apartment, still in Alexandria, but away from the 2 years in El Salvador. It's bigger, the rent is higher and it's piece of mind. Plus my ex can't find me...HALLELUJAH!

Third, I am growing stronger with my church family. Alfred Street Baptist is the best. I've met so many great people and gotten involved with the Singles Ministy.

Fourth, I have fallen for someone and I don't even think he notices me. I am trying to play cool but when I am around him, my heart jumps. Hopefully he will notice me and maybe give me a try.

Anyways I am going to sleep but I will be updating more often and share more insight into my life.
