I’m in the process of recovering from a very fun Halloween night so I can’t make deep thoughts in my aching brain pan. So I will just admit to my absolute love of baking. I don’t even care if I eat my creations some of the time. I just love that sense of accomplishment when I get it right.
In fact, I love to do all kinds of things that require the ability to follow directions. I can sew and build things with the aid of a pattern or a kit. People know that I love to put together shelves so they are more than happy to let me.
I also love to wrap presents. I have no idea where I’m going with this but these aren’t things that most people tend to profess a deep and abiding joy in performing. Even when I get frustrated by complicated stitches or strange shapes to get the paper around, that feeling when I’m complete is sublime.
Here are a few of my tasty masterpieces.
