Happy July 1st!

At around midnight, well, about thirty minutes past, under the persistance of my little sister and a box of brownie mix that we acquired, I made brownies.
I think I was mostly influenced to bake something because of my July 2014 to-do list… Yes, I know that the words read “bake a cake”, but anytime that something can keep ME in the kitchen and it’s not to have coffee or tea, should be noted and celebrated…. And I did celebrate, by eating two of the brownies and myyyyy are they sweet…. You could say that’s how I celebrated the coming of July…..☺

Hello Everyone

Long time, no blog post…. I know and I’m sorry to any of the followers who may still be around.

For most people in the world, it’s summertime and like many of my fellow Chicagoans, we are NOT complaining about the heat because of the artic abuse we suffered early this year.

The point of this post is to share my July 2014 to-do list, since we are on the eve July 1st.

JULY 2014

I. Collect seashells
II. Stand at the water’s edge/sit on a towel to gaze out across the water
III. Read “Gift from The Sea” by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
IV. Use fisherman’s netting to decorate a table top with a bottle of sand and seashells
V. Stargaze
VI. Experience the beauty and power of nature during a thunderstorm
VII. Read “Out of The Garden: Women Writers on The Bible” edited by Christina Buchman and Celina Speigel and eat a red apple
VIII. Read “Like Water for Chocolate”, “Reckless Appetite” by Jacqueline Deval, “Catering to Nobody” by Diane Matt Davidson, “Dying for Chocolate” by D.M. Davidson, “Cereal Murders” by D.M. Davidson
IX. Enjoy Mexican enchiladas with chocolate sauce while watching “Like Water for Chocolate”
Chinese takeout for “Eat, Drink, Man, Woman”
French cuisine de femme for “Babette’s Feast’
X. Read “The Cake Bible” by Rose Levy Berenbaum
XI. Bake a cake

I’ll be honest and say I don’t dabble in too much DIY, I have read “Like Water for Chocolate” before and I’ve seen the movie twice, as for the other authors, I’ve never heard of them before, so if you have, I would enjoy any opinions on their work. I love movies and eating and doing them together. And I look forward to baking a cake, for the first time. (Yes, I know,  I’m very slow…😆)

If you take any ideas from this list, feel free and let me know of your experience.

Was it Love? That made me follow
you into darkness…
So long ago it seemed, I recognized
ME in the mirror… before I broke
the glass, trying to find you

My fingertips bled, as I tried to
put my life back together… I
bandaged my heart but it soon came
apart… I glued my  soul whole,
but once I shed a tear, it quickly

Don’t you want to Love me?
Lie naked with me? See my eyes
under the moonlight? Sit next to
me in your car?
Don’t you WANT my love?
