|For now, it's Bisquick Biscuits w/ Buttermilk|
I am working very hard, as I told you, to make more things from scratch, and that includes biscuits. It's pretty sad when I can bake just about anything and struggle with such a simple item. I am DETERMINED to fix this! I have been given a couple of recipes to try out and believe me, that is one thing I am going to tackle over spring break!
There are a few more recipes I want to tackle, and I have to say being in my kitchen so much lately has been like therapy for this heart of mine. I am looking forward to a few free days to spend in there just delighting my soul until it's content! Yes I am one of "those". I am a girly girl who likes to cook and clean! I am NOT ashamed! I don't have to get my nails done to feel feminine. Though I do like to use a bit of polish to pretty em up. I like to dig in the dirt to plant flowers and plants. That is coming up too! I like to mow the grass, because it is such a fullfillment looking at a manicured lawn knowing that I took the time myself to do it. It is complete. Not everything us mothers and wives get to do are complete in such a quickly manner.
Sometimes it is okay to go hunting to find what we long for, what we desire. And I can tell you, I am human. I don't do things perfectly. Though I strive for perfection, I do let myself fall from time to time. I can't hold up to the pressure I give myself all the time, though for the majority it is what keeps me going. I am driven. I am motivated. I am often challenged, and that is wonderful!
No, I am not tooting my own horn by any means, though I am sure that is what it looks like. But I know many people in my own life who are unmotivated to do anything. I know people in my own life who would rather just stay the same, right where they are, though they aren't happy. I know people in my own life who are choosing to suffer, because well, they would rather suffer then do anything about it. I CAN'T do that! And to be perfectly honest, I don't understand it. I have to say though these individuals are ones who help push me to become better at who *I* am, and to continue to get stronger in all that I do. ON days I want those M&M's I will often say well ~ what would so and so do, and then I do the opposite. Insanity I guess, but it works. We all have to find what works for us.
Yes I know, yesterday I lectured all about dealing with our own homes, and not judging. When I say I use those lives as motivaiton for me, I don't mean it in a judgemental way ~ though it is what it sounded like. Just as I try to live my life as an example, we are all living examples and what we do in our daily lives can be used as either a positive or negative example. I am sure there are some of my negative quirks that others use as motivation for them to NOT be like me. I am okay with that. ~Smile~
Today is my "friday" at work! I LOVE Thursdays! They go really quickly, and already having alot on my list of things to take care of when I first get there, will surely get my day going on a fast pace. Tomorrow, expect an influx of posts including recipes for the BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE ever, a devotion or two, and a post where I pour my heart out on some things I have been dealing with personally.
Until then, have a BLESSED Thursday!
