I have a lot to tell y’all and I don’t really know where to even begin. My life has been a mess these days, my treatment has made me extremely exhausted and all I’ve done for the past week or so is wake up, let the dogs out, eat breakfast, go for a long walk with the dogs and then go home — sleep, play with the dogs, out with the dogs again before dinner and then on an off sleeping in between. But yesterday I had sort of a wake up call. After a lot of crying, ( It comes and goes.. because of my mom and all.) I talked to a couple of friends of mine on the phone and they said something to me that really made me open up my eyes. They said, ad I quote ” You are good enough, you can do this – I know you can. You love to cook and to write so do what you are good at, do what makes you really happy. Start cooking again and start writing again because I know you can and I know you’re good at it, so get back into the game.”
I really needed to hear that, and It gave me not only inspiration but also felt that they were right, I do love to cook and I do love to write so I should do that, because it makes me happy and I know I’m good at it. Make the best of life, no matter what happens and no matter what situation you are in there is always room for positive thinking and hard work does pay off so keep working to reach your goals because I know you can, so do it — GO chase that dream of yours and make yourself proud and show everyone who didn’t belived in you that you can do this, and prove them wrong but most importantly make yourself proud.
‘I got some amazing news to share with y’all. In May I’m going on a food trip/ B-day trip/ writing trip to *Drum roll* New York, while in New York I’ve planned a small weekend trip to New Orleans as well. I’m excited, I will be blogging about everything, everything food related goes on here, and everything non-food related will apear on “My life blog?” I don’t know what to call it, but I will be linking every post to one another, meaning that I will be posting a link down below on my posts here to the other blog and vice versa. That way the followers I have there get to click on a link to read and see about the food here and all of you get to read and see all about my life on the other blog.
I will also be vlogging about my trip, so I’m opening up a you tube Chanel and I will be uploading a video every day from my trip.
Easter is coming up and my aunt Liv is coming over on Thursday and she will be staying here over weekend. Finding out what to serve for dinner was tricky and I asked her for ideas something I shouldn’t have because she was planning and organizing everything before I could get a word in. I sent her a kind and polite text after words and told her what I’m serving this Easter. I just had to put my foot down and say Hey! My way or the high way! just kidding, but I told her what I will be serving, in the end she was thrilled so I guess that’s good.
I have to get the whole apartment ready for Easter and my vacuum-cleaner is not working as it’s supposed to so I have to buy one and I can’t do that until Wednesday so I will probably be cleaning the house until 2 in the morning. I will be cleaning the guest room on Monday so I don’t have to think about that. The on Sunday, this Sunday I will be decorating for Easter and I’m actually really excited about it.
On Easter Eve we will be six at the dining table, I only have two chairs but that’s a whole another story. I will be buying four more on Wednesday. But I will have guests coming over on Easter Eve. Bell, her boyfriend Frank, her mom Catherine and her Grandmother. Then of course there is me and my aunt. I’m truth be told terrified of screwing everything up. I have guests coming over and there is no time what so ever to make a mistake, all the stores are closed and if I screw up there will be NO dinner to serve at all. That itself scares me. It’s like I’m going on an episode of Master chef, Top chef or chopped or something. I’m decorating the table the night before so everything is ready and all I need to do is focus on the food. I will place my aunt on the couch in front of the TV so that I can have the kitchen all to myself, then I will say a prayer before beginning my mission of making roasted ham with side dishes as Easter dinner this year. Wish me luck, because I need all the luck I can get. I will be making a roasted ham on this Sunday as well as sort of a practice base so to speak, test the ground or something so that I know what I’m dealing with.
This was all for today, I will be back soon with more updates and great recipes. I hope y’all are having an amazing day.
