life is good.
i might only be saying that because i'm having my first proper cup of coffee in a week. but so what? you have to say it when you feel it, right? so....
the heat just came on, a banana breads in the oven, i have three days off in a row which i don't plan on being sick for this time, and my writing is progressing swimmingly. right now, life is freakin' great.
this was going to be a blog post about baking. and how now i bake and i never did before and isn't it cool as adults that we continue to grow and learn? then i thought about it.
i bake exactly four things comfortably: bread, banana bread, chocolate chip cookies and apple crumb cake. that cake recipe is a new addition, too. so until about 2 weeks ago, three things.
that's like saying i'm a swimmer when my only stroke is doggy paddle (though you should see my underwater handstand).
but maybe that's the great thing about being an adult. we can say and do whatever we want. you know, barring mean things.
so i'll say it proudly: I BAKE four things!
this week from work i'll acquire that shortbread cookie recipe. that'll put me up to 5. it's a slow start, but visit me when i'm 70 and be prepared to have your socks blown off.
and here, to light up your wednesday, is a fabulous dancing dog video:
