Yesterday my Ego was WAY HIGH!! I felt like a domestic goddess....LOL You know I'm laughing my behind off right now as I'm typing this! Everyone knows I love to cook and I used to say, "Yeah I can bake". Well that was until I met this group of women who LOVE to bake and do it every chance they have...yes that's a little intimidating to say the least. So I usually don't even mention "Gina" and "baking" in the same sentence, well not until yesterday!
I DID IT! I actually made sugar cookies from SCRATCH, I mean flour and all. I used a recipe from crisco butter flavored shortening and they came out FLUFFY (cakelike, my favorite) and they WEREN'T BURNT!!! Oh my Gosh!!!! ANNNNNDDDDDD I made a pumpkin roll from a recipe on the LIbby's Pumpkin Can...adventurous but good. Still have to try that one again to perfect it, but it was still yummy! So I of course had to go drop some off to a couple friends, came back home and had dinner with Chris(pork roulade...really good!), dessert with the kids and then I PASSED OUT!!!
My day was full! I had two friends "drop by" for a few minutes, I spent my morning finger painting with Adrianna, she "washed" dishes for me while I picked up the breakfast stuff and the living room, she made her bed and I made mine, and then while looking through her room for a photo from a year ago (which I couldn't find anywhere!) we ended up tearing her room apart, getting rid of some toys and organizing her closet. After dessert, I gave the kids baths and that was IT...I WAS SPENT!!!
"DOMESTIC"....that is when I feel my best! When I'm doing what I want to do, being with my kids and taking care of my home...that's my BEST reward!
My friend told me to put pics of my cookies on the blog but I CANNOT upload them for some reason...this dinosaur computer is just maxed out now (it is from 2000 after all) I think and just can't take anything else on it so I can't do that now! :o(
