Lightening, Self-care, and upcoming classes

Well, this post is lower than molasses on a snow covered hill. I just got off a call with a friend helping me regain focus on setting and meeting goals.

Ruined: The Angel Food Cake Saga

Baking is my first creative love beginning with the staff of life, bread. Oh how I enjoy kneading the dough until it's just the right consistency then there's that yeasty build up from the moment it goes into the oven when dough and heat combine preparing the bread for consumption. Waiting until the bread has… Continue reading Ruined: The Angel Food Cake Saga

Let’s Get Funky

Gratuitous Image to evoke HOT HOT HOT A number of friends local to Central Texas have mentioned that this is unusual weather. First the rain complete with lightning and thunder. Boom! Clap!

When I was growing up

We all have troubles in life some that we speak of, some that we don't. Our life experiences help form and shape us unto the people we are today.
