On my Mind :Cooking From Scratch

I am learning how to cook from scratch. I am starting at the very beginning. I learned the rudiments of cooking ( how to follow a recipe and make simple meals) from watching my mother in the kitchen, but now I am putting theory into practice.  I am discovering, much to Matt's waistline's  dismay, I enjoy baking. This is one of my first attempts: Applesauce Cake from scratch! Yum!

Keeping up with the Bumper

I never thought staying at home would keep me so busy.  I imagined I would have plenty of time to write, or craft or do whatever. Yet it seems my days are so full I can barely keep up with the house work.  I regret not learning about homemaking, when I was younger and did not have a small child to care for.
Yet I am immensely grateful to be at home with The Bumper.
At seven months she is crawling, and pulling herself up on the furniture, and is totally enthralled by laptops and electric cords. As I result I spend most of my day chasing after her. When my friends ask me how I keep my figure, being home, I just grin.
Now I must scoot, she is after the DVD’s!!
