Can’t seem to think

0

It’s been a process getting back into the groove with classes. I’m trying to get a schedule down so I can get my work done on time. I had my second Zoom class session. I feel so out of it I don’t feel like I know ASL that well. I know I need to practice the vocab and practice signing. I need to take charge of my learning of ASL even though I can’t be in class physically.

I haven’t had time to think this week and write to relax. Homework is just needing to be done. I really need to set aside a time during the day to just write on here before homework. Having to do work online means you have to do more work than you would in an actual classroom setting. I’m trying to work on getting what I can do early. But it doesn’t help when things aren’t open until the next week, so I’m trying to get done what I can outside of that. I seem to wake up in the morning and spend half the morning just trying to wake up.

I’m trying to do what I can to get back into writing. I’m just struggling to try to figure out what to write about. I feel like I should be cooking and talking about what I made. But I’m struggling just cooking dinner most days.

So I went to Costco yesterday that was a chore. The line was ridiculous to get into the store. But It was kind of nice in the store because I wasn’t running into people left and right. I found a couple books that I think will be a perfect read. Here are the books…

and

I really like learning about history and Native Americans. I love to read cookbooks because it can tell me how to do a recipe in a way I didn’t think about. Also, I love learning new methods. I’ve already started reading the cookbook and marking recipes I want to try out.

Off of amazon, I ordered this book for my brother and his girls since he’s homeschooling them now.

I figured they’d have a great deal of fun doing the science experiments. I know the girls will have a blast learning about and watching them.

I’ve been slowly getting into doing my homework. I have a great deal due for the week, and I’m slowly getting it done.

Learning about what culture is and how everyone has it is interesting. In my writing assignment, I wrote about how I grew up with little money. That I’ve learned to always save what I can and use what we have already. So it’s interesting learning the different cultures people have.

I threw up yesterday, I don’t know if I had too much in my stomach, so my body just rejected it. But it was a couple hours after dinner, so I don’t know. I just hope it doesn’t happen again. I know I’ve been having heartburn lately. I’ve been taking antacids to try and keep it under control. I might switch my calcium meds to the chalky antacids so I can have my heartburn under control, and I’m getting my calcium. I’m doing what I can to eat slower than usual to see if that had something to do with it. I really hope I don’t have to switch my surgery to gastric bypass. If this keeps happening, they’ll have to do that. But I’m going to do what I can to get it under control.

I got a pan for $5, and it makes tiny square cakes. I really want to try it out. I found it at JoAnn’s on clearance. I went there to get some fabric to make a blanket. I found some adorable bee fabric that I want as a blanket. I got three blankets I want to make which one is going to be several different fabric sewed together to create an adorable quilt. I got the bee fabric, and I’m going to put a beautiful floral fabric on the back of it with a yellow edge. So the whole blanket is going to be black, grey, and yellow. The third blanket I’m going to make is a Slytherin from the Harry Potter blanket. That one is going to be black and green. I would really like some great Pyrenees fabric. I don’t know where to find it, though. I saw some people in the Great Pyrenees group had some for masks. I really should’ve asked where they got it, oh well. Maybe if I see them post it again, I’ll ask, or I’ll just google it lol.

I’m looking around to see if I can get Rocko’s picture on some fabric, and it seems like I can. I just have to wait until I get some extra money to get it.

So I found a piece of fabric with a rottweiler on it and ordered it for mom so she can put it on her quilt. She said she’s going to make it the center of the blanket. I found a place where I can get Rocko’s face on a piece on the fabric. It’ll cost about $15 to get it done. And since I want two different pictures, it’ll cost $30. I have my two favorite pictures of him, and it’s

I love these two pictures of him even though the normal color one is on the last day we had him. I miss him so much I can’t believe it’s officially been a year since we said goodbye to him. April 23, 2019, is when we said goodbye.

It’s Brandon and mines 9 year anniversary together. So, we’re sitting here watching people who are urban explorers. I’m going to have to look them up so I can still watch their videos after Brandon leaves for New York.

I’ve been looking at different patterns I can get for sewing. I was looking at costume patterns because some of the styles are perfect for goth looks. I really want to sew my own clothes so I can have the style I want. I rather spend the money on fabric and supplies so I can make a few pieces instead of spending $150 on one dress. Most goth clothes are $50-$150. It’s ridiculous how expensive it can be.

I’m thinking of doing daily posts instead of weekly posts. I’m not sure who reads my posts but I want to keep up with posting and doing it this way I’m able to recap my whole week in a day. But that also if I did it once a day it’ll keep me more determined to post every day even though I don’t write on it every day. I don’t know I’ll think about it. If your reading this tell me what you want.

Gratitude

0

Sorry, I haven’t done my gratitude posts. Lately, I’ve just forgotten. Plain and simple, I forgot. I want to do posts on what I’m grateful for. So here’s this gratitude post.

  1.  Being healthy, so many people take it for granted, and given the time with the virus going around, people forget that being healthy and staying healthy is not a guarantee.
  2. School, starting school back up, made me realize how much I missed it lol. I didn’t know how much I wanted to be back in school. People can take getting an education for granted, but when it makes you happy, you realize how lucky you are to be in school.
  3. Learning to sew, I’ve wanted to learn to sew for so long, and mom taught me a long time ago, and I forgot how to do it. I’m glad I’ve learned to use a sewing machine again. I’ve made masks for family and friends. I’m going to make aprons and bags along with some hot pads. Then I’m going to make my first quilt. I’m getting all the spooky cloth together so I can make it. I also got coth to create a future baby blanket. I want to have kids, and I know one day I’ll have at least one.
  4. The stimulus check the government gave everyone, I know I have money for bills, but being able to pay a little extra on my bills is nice.
  5. Movies since they’ve been keeping me entertained when not doing school work and before school started.
  6. Knowing how to follow a recipe. Some people can get quite confused with recipes if they don’t know how to follow one. I’ve found reading through the recipe a couple times than working on making what it talks about helps so much.
  7. Cookbooks, I love being able to read on how to cook things. I love learning how to cook new things.
  8.  Knowing how to bake. Baking seems to bring me the most happiness. I love being able to learn to bake, then coming up with my own recipes.
  9. My best friend because she loves me for who I am. I love her for who she is, and I always will. I’m so happy to be a godmother to her kids. I love her little mini-me’s lol.
  10.  For all the people who have been working through this virus. Doctors, Nurses, janitors, food workers, Delivery people, CNA’s, grocery store workers, truck drivers, farmers, people who work at homeless shelters, those who work at essential businesses risking getting infected, and anyone who helps those who need it no matter what.

School started back up online

0

I can’t believe that I spent most of the week, not writing. It feels so weird. I thoroughly enjoy writing, so it surprised me that I didn’t write for so long. So what have I been up to?

I’ve been learning to sew masks and hot pads lol. I baked a milk and honey bread that tasted amazing as french toast. We haven’t left the house except to get food from the store and check the post office. I was going to make mini lemon bundt cakes, but the lemons were bad, and we didn’t have enough money to buy some more.

School starts back up with classes being only offered online. I’ve been trying to get things taken care of for school. Making sure I get my books and getting things watched that need to be watched beforehand. I have to be in the zoom classroom on Monday for ASL. There’s supposed to be a deaf event done for it, but that might change due to how things are going with this virus. It should be interesting to learn ASL entirely online. Math seems more straight forward than my last math class. Communications is reasonably straight forward as well. I’ve been watching the intro videos that we can watch now and reading the material.

I’ve been just trying to keep my mind busy since I’ve been cooped up in the house. I’m trying not to slip into a depression and making sure I’m doing productive things. I’ve been trying to do something good for me mentally, even when I don’t feel like doing it.

We’re not really going to celebrate easter. Never really have celebrated it. But everyone in the baking community has been making carrot cakes for easter.

It’s easter. So I guess happy easter. Just going to make potato soup for dinner and possibly grilled cheese with the milk and honey bread I made. Going to finish creating the masks, then clean the kitchen along with doing the dishes. The kitchen is a complete mess, and I don’t like it, so I’m going to clean it.

I’ve been hooked to listening to music at night before I go to sleep. I forgot how much I enjoy hard rock. Been listening to Five Finger Death Punch, Korn, Disturbed, and Godsmack along with a few others. I haven’t listened to them for a long time, and I remember how much I enjoy those artists.

School just started, and I’m uncertain of how it’s going to go being entirely online. My teachers are doing their best to help up with figuring it out.

I did my first zoom class today, and that was for ASL. Trying to figure out how it all works, and it seems that’s going to be the only zoom I have during the week. I had to keep my mic muted since my dogs like to bark at any noise they hear. It took me a few to get mine figured out cause I didn’t realize I needed to click on my mic so I could listen to them.

I got what homework I could do for communications and with ASL. I watched what videos I needed to know what homework to do. I read through the modules and saw what I needed to for that week’s course work. I still need to work on math. I plan on doing that and my ASL video tomorrow. Apparently, we’re doing the vocab on our own to teach the rest of the class how to sign the words. We’re also going to sign a story about Mr. Potatohead lol.

I got what school work I could do for the day, and I also went and check the post office for my check. I put that in the bank then came home and paid bills go me.

It’ll be nice to change my focus on something other than boredom. I’ve been mentally going nuts, not leaving the house very much. I didn’t realize how much I try to keep myself busy, so I’m not stuck in my head. After going through DBT, I did what I needed to, so I didn’t dwell on things around me. I hate being stuck in my head most days. I guess I struggle with thinking about things that’ll make me unhappy. Overthinking is my biggest downfall for myself mentally. When I do that, I end up becoming increasingly depressed. It’s best to try not to focus on the bad and nonexistent, which people with BPD tend to do.

I’m planning on reading my communications book and try to get ahead in that class, well, as much as I can. There’s quite a bit of reading to do in that class. Oh, I should print out the study guides on the modules. Okay, I just tried to get into the module, and it is not open, yet so I have to wait until next week.

Brandon got excepted into a college over in New York. I’m not going with him. I have no desire to leave, and besides, I want to stay with my mom and help her when she needs it. I’m happy here, and I don’t want to leave. I’m happy for Brandon, and if he wants to go, it’s his choice, not mine. I don’t tell him what he can or can’t do with his life. I’m genuinely happy for him. He might be leaving at the end of August if he can get the money together to go for the fall quarter. If not, he’s going to leave for the spring quarter. He’ll be at that school for four years to get his masters with cooking. He wants to expand his knowledge and abilities with food. He feels this school will open up doorways for his future and to open the type of restaurant he wants.

So we got our stimulus check, which is going to go for bills. I need to pay down some credit cards. Paid on the phone bill.

I’ve been doing math even though I hate it, but at least I’m doing it. I’ll get through this class no matter what. I’ll do my group work and tests as soon as I can, and I’m going to get as much as the online stuff done as I can. I want to pass it even though I hate doing it. I’ll say there’s not as much required in this math class as my other math class. So it should be easy to get a passing grade.

Oh, I thought I would have more to talk about with starting school this week. Guess I was wrong, lol.

So, what to talk about?

I’m slowly getting things done that I need to for school. Right now, I’m turning in my test for ASL. Though the dogs started being noisy while I recorded my ASL video, thankfully, they didn’t full-blown start barking. I can only imagine what people would say if I yelled out in the middle of my video to get the dogs a damn carrot lol. I wish it didn’t take so long to upload the videos for ASL.

I feel like I’m not being very productive with not going to the school for classes or work-study. Though I found out today since we can’t go on campus to do our hours, we’re going to be awarded half of our money, and if they stay closed after may, then we’ll be awarded the other half. I missed when I used to take the bus there and sit in the bakery with Brandon and work on my next blog post. I probably could get up and do those sorts of things and then do my homework like I used to. Right now, I’m getting up in the morning and taking my sweet ass time to wake up before working on homework.

Everyone got stimulus checks from the government. We used ours to pay on some bills and put a little bit aside for more bills. It would be nice if they did the $2,000 a month for everyone since a lot of people can’t work right now. But I know that’s wishful thinking, but it would be helpful for bills. It was nice for the one time, so we could get some bills paid that needed to be paid.

I need to stop eating so much lol. Being stuck at home, I’m eating more than I should. I hope I haven’t gained too much weight. I need to do better at taking care of myself.

We’ve made masks for us to go out and about. We don’t have gloves to wear, though.

I’m getting what I need done for school for this week. I need to do the rest of my math and the last video for ASL. I want to get ahead for communications. I have a lot to read for it, and I need to write a long post for a discussion. I only have two more homework for math. The video I need to do for ASL needs to talk about potato head comic strip and do a story about it. I haven’t come up with my story yet, but I can get it written up tonight, and I’ll make the video tomorrow. I have to make sure I write it out in gloss and English. Gloss is when it’s written in ASL. Get done what I need to for the day and do my homework.

I hope everyone is doing well even though the virus is going around. I hope everyone is safe and healthy.

Melaleuca

This site is like Costco, where you pay for a membership, for I think $20 a year. That price is so much better than Costco’s lol. But you don’t have to go to a store to order you just order online, and it comes within 2-3 days. Their customer service is top-notch. I wanted a particular package they were selling for signing up, and they called who they needed to find out why I couldn’t buy it. Come to find out they just repackaged it, so it wasn’t for sale. I found a different one to try, which I’ll get into. You get money back for the products you buy. You can also get money to use by watching videos about the company. I just signed up, and I already have $100 to spend on my next purchase.

They’re all-natural and safe for you and your family. They don’t contain any harsh chemicals that can damage your body. At the meeting, they talked about how regular cleaning products are just as dangerous as smoking. They sell cleaning products, vitamins, snacks, drinks, skincare, makeup, even stuff for workouts, and snacks for your cats and dogs. Their products are derived from plants, and they use that information they find out to help create products that are safe for you, your kids, your pets, and the environment.

So, when I signed up on to the melaleuca site through my brother, I got the Sei Bella skincare products. I found out about this through my brother Richard who sells their products. I went to a gathering before all the Covid-19 stuff started and found out more about the products he sells.

Their cleaning products work so well! The toilet bowl cleaner got a stain off that I’ve been trying to get since we moved in. You don’t need a whole lot of cleaning products to get stuff clean. You only need one pump of laundry detergent to get your clothes clean. If you want to make them smell good, they have a pod you can put in that makes them smell really good and gets stains off your clothes. I tried the cleaning stuff because my mom got it for the house. You can buy the solution which is in a concentrated form and for a couple dollars buy a spray bottle that goes with the solutions and tell you how to mix it.

We ordered coffee grounds from them. I’m trying it right now, and it’s not bad. It’s full of a depth of flavor. We’ll see if it upsets my tummy. They told us it’s low in acid, so it shouldn’t. But we’ll see after I drink this cup.

So back to the skincare. I’ve been using it since I got it, and so far, it’s making my skin really soft, and it feels really hydrated. I got the ones for oily skin. They have some for dry skin as well. They have skincare called Sei Bella, which is their luxury line, and they have Affinia, which is more drug store line. I got the Sei Bella line because I wanted to try the more luxurious products that they compare to la prairie, which is a line that’s worth between $200 and $1000 for their products. If I could get the same type of skincare for only $90, I was going to take it. I’ve never tried la prairie, but I’ve always wanted to. My skin has been clear of blemishes, and my fine lines have improved around my eyes. I’ve been trying these products for exactly a month and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I’ve been using them twice a day for a month, and I still have a great deal of product left. I think they’ll last me a good month or two more. I would highly recommend using the skincare line, Sei Bella.

I think the next thing I’m going to buy and try out is their makeup. I want to try a full face of makeup through them and give it my honest thoughts and wear tests. I also want to try out their hair care line to see how that works on my thin oily hair.

If you want to sign up, let me know. I can put you in contact with my brother, who can sign you up. You need to sign up through a person. You’re not required to sell anything when you sign up unless you want to. You’re signing up to be a customer, and that’s it. I know my brother can give you more in-depth information about the company.

Learning new things

0

I’m going to be making pie crusts and blind baking them for haupia chocolate pie and a blueberry pie. I’m going to make the blueberry with a crumble topping. I’m also going to make cream puffs. Mom wants a white chocolate raspberry cream puff, and I also want to make a key lime cream puff. Though, I need to get more white chocolates and graham crackers.

So today, mom and I went to my dads and visited. We went to Jo-Anns Fabrics after getting stuff to make masks, and I got some fabric to make an apron. They have free kits so people could make their own masks. I found a pattern online on how to make a 50s inspired apron that I want to make. Maybe I should pull the sewing machine out of the storage unit and learn to sew using that, or I’m going to be sewing it by hand, which I don’t mind. I’ve done that before and made a backpack that lasted more than five years. I also want to make an apron for my nieces. I think that’d be so cute on them.

And so it begins

Measuring cloth out for masks, and then I’m going to measure things out for aprons. I found a pattern at Jo-Ann’s for a purse I really want to make it but first the masks and then the aprons. I’m following the instructions for the masks from this site. Mom’s going to show me how to use the sewing machine. She’s taught me before, but I only sewed a couple lines I didn’t full-on practice. I’m determined to learn how to use the sewing machine this time.

Mom and I spent yesterday cutting out the fabric for face masks. We’re going to finish doing that today. What we don’t use for masks mom wants to make into a blanket and apron. Mom’s going to show me how to use the sewing machine today. I’ll probably take breaks to make pie crust so I can get that made finally and the cream puffs. When I went to Jo-Anns, I found a mini bundt pan for $7.00 marked down from $29.00 I was so happy when I saw that on clearance.

I’m going to make mini lemon bundt cakes. I know they won’t take that long to cook, so I think the most time-consuming part with be with mixing up the batter. I’m trying to do as much as I can that makes me happy before I’m knee-deep into homework and won’t think about anything else. I’ll definitely take pictures of the first mask I finish lol. It’ll be the first thing I sewed using a sewing machine.

We’re getting closer to school starting. I’ve watched the videos I need to for ASL. It’ll be interesting going to class on zoom, especially on Mondays sense my dogs love to bark at anything and everything lol.

I got some of the masks sewed, but they still need the pleats, so I need to iron them, then sew them again and put the ties on them.

I’m making milk and honey bread. Though I added more honey in it than the recipe called for. I really wanted it to taste of honey. My arms were hurting from all the kneading I did to it. I kneaded it for a good 5-7 minutes.

Wow, I just realized I haven’t written on here much this week. I’ve been so focused on getting ready for school to start and sewing that I forgot lol. So I guess this week is a short post. I’ll try to have more to say in my next post.

March was a doozy of a month O.o

0

March was a doozy of a month. We had our finals for school, and now everyone has to stay home due to the covid-19 virus. So did I pass my classes? I passed 3 out of the 4. Not surprisingly, I didn’t pass math. So I have to retake it. Hopefully, with this different teacher, I’ll be able to pass the math class. So, far I like what she has to say in her syllabus. I don’t know if we’re starting classes on the 6th or the 13th. I know Brandon doesn’t begin until the 17th of April. They said we’re supposed to get our financial aid on the 8th of April. I know the banks are supposed to stay open, so hopefully, we’ll be able to get money off of it to pay our bills. Otherwise, we’re paying our bills with our school cards, and I’ll have to figure out how much to pay off of each card.

I realized I forgot to put the shortening and butter in the fridge for the pie crust. I’m also going to make a rough puff pastry. Its the easy way to make puff pastry. I saw it a lot on The Great British Baking Show. It’s where I saw that cake that I want to make and other things that make me want to make them. Oh, watching them make meringue made me want to try and make it again. I tried years ago to make it but failed miserably, so I want to try again.

I need to get my schedule back to normal. I’m staying up past midnight and sleeping until almost noon. I can’t keep this schedule when school starts.

I got some fake nails and put them on and painted them. They’re not with acrylic, only the nail. I didn’t want to do all the acrylic. That would take me forever, and with no proper sanding tools, yeah, it would take a long time.

Dog’s are playing. Cats are sleeping. Brandon is playing the PS4. Mom’s drinking coffee and watching TV. I’m sitting here drinking coffee, and soon as I’m done, I’m going to heat some water and wash my face. I’m making cleaning my face a routine during the day and night. Heating the water and being mindful of the process of washing my face. I’m trying to think of what skill that is from DBT, but there’s a specific skill that you can practice so your in the moment and just focusing on the process of what you’re doing. I’ll ask my therapist what skill that is. I think that’s the skill I’ve been using cooking.

Mom suggested I talk about having to stay home because of the virus when I want to go to school. To be honest, it’s not any different from when I was in a mental state not to leave the house what so ever. My anxiety and depression made it to where I didn’t want to go anywhere. The less I went places, the happier I was before. Now, yes, I want to go to school, and I’m going a bit stir crazy, not leaving, but I’m doing better mentally. I’m cooking and trying to make a positive thing out of this. I’m definitely in a better mental state now than when I was before when I didn’t want to leave the house what’s so ever. I’m working on writing on here and cooking. Whereas before, I wouldn’t do anything and just lay in bed doing nothing.

So I’ve put the chore chart back in place. We’re going to do $30 for the end of the month prize for the person with the most points. I got these chore charts off of amazon, and I wanted to encourage cleaning around the house not just for me but for everybody. I want the chart to be in place when we move in with Richard and the girls. Though, I might put in a different prize for the girls, so they’re getting rewarded for their chores. But I’ll have to talk to Richard and see what he wants to do.

I made the pie crust, and that’s resting in the fridge. Now I mixed up, and I’m baking the dog treats. What I put in them is

Dog treats

16 ozs or 1 lb of peas frozen-thawed

1 lb of broccoli from frozen-thawed

3 cups shredded carrots fresh

1 tbsp coriander

1 ½ tbsp ground ginger

1 ½ tbsp ground cinnamon

1 cup organic PB fit peanut butter

1 cup steel-cut oats

Four eggs

¾ cups water

Heat oven up to 350 degrees. Mix everything. Put on parchment covered cookie sheet in an even layer. Bake for 50 minutes. Let them cool completely, then cut as big or as small as you want. Refrigerate the rest.

So the dogs love the treats I made for them they’re going nuts over them lol.

I made enough pie crust for three pies and one quiche. I wanted to make a potato, onion, and cheese quiche.

So, what to talk about?

I painted my nails pink with a copper accent nail. They’re a bit messy looking, but I like them. I also fudged them up before they dried, so a couple looks like crap. So far, I’ve been able to do my contacts with the nails.

Oh, I plucked my eyebrows because they were becoming one lol. I was able to see them after I put in my contacts and saw they needed plucking. So I plucked them, and I’m thinking of doing my makeup just not sure.

I’m thinking of making a pineapple curd. We have everything to make it except the cornstarch. I think pineapple curd with a lemon or line curd would taste amazing. I could make haupia and put it with that that would taste wonderful. We’ll see if anyone on Facebook will give up a recipe that I can use so I can try and make it.

I made a garlic and herb bread. It turned out so much better than the last one I made.

They turned out so good I want to make grilled cheese out of a slice of it. You can’t see in the picture, but they’re huge lol. Brandon said they look like hamburger buns lol. They were right out of the oven in this picture.

I think food is my escape from my worries right now. Cooking does make me happy, and it’s a nice distraction. I’m going to make breadsticks filled with cheese too.

I made pineapple curd, and it tastes so good. I’m going to make lemon curd and key lime curd for pies and cream puffs.

I didn’t get to make the lemon curd, but I’m going to make that tomorrow. But I did make cinnamon rolls which didn’t turn out, so I’m going to try a different recipe. I found one that might work, but we’ll see after I make them. But the curds were so good!

Today I’m making lemon curd along with trying that new cinnamon roll recipe. I need to do the dishes first, and I already promised to make cream puffs so I might make those first then make the cinnamon rolls. Oh, and I still need to blind bake my pie crusts so I can make the haupia and pineapple pie with meringue for that pie too. I have some dried beans I can use to blind bake them.

I’ve made this post mostly about food. I just can’t seem to think about anything else, especially with how I’ve been cooking. My entire therapy appointment, all I talked about was food. My therapist said she hadn’t eaten lunch, and I was making her hungry lol. It’s funny she like garlic just as much as I do. But I have been making sure to wear my Slytherin apron that Brandon got me for our wedding anniversary.

I love Harry Potter, and when I went onto the website, I got sorted into the house Slytherin. I so wish I could go down to Florida to visit Harry Potter World at Universal Studios. I was to get my wand and robes. But for now, I’ll just rock my apron while I cook. I should try and do something Harry Potter themed when I cook. I want the Harry Potter cookbook. I have that cookbook on my wish list on Amazon along with the Lord of The Rings cookbook. I also have other cookbooks on there that I want from the Great British Baking Show. Though, I should look on Thriftbooks to see if I could order them cheaper. I don’t know we’ll see kind of wish I could share my wishlist on there for people to order from and get it sent to me. Like you can find on Amazon. I have a wishlist for my birthday wants, and they’re all cookbooks lol. I do enjoy reading cookbooks. I like learning about how to cook things, especially sweets.

I need other things to talk about on here lol. I know I took a couple days off from writing on here to bake, but I also didn’t know what to talk about. No one is giving me ideas of what to talk about on here.

I haven’t been doing a whole lot besides baking and watching TV. Well, more watching movies on VUDU and TV shows on Netflix.

I’ve been listening to music every night before bed. I haven’t listened to rock music for a long time, and I’ve been enjoying listening to it before bed. I have Amazon music so I can listen to music, and I’ve been able to listen to the newest stuff on there but also the old stuff I enjoy. When I get money, I want to buy the songs I really like so I can have them on my computer—been really into listening to Five Finger Death Punch, Skillet, Disturbed, and Korn. I know I haven’t just sat and listened to those bands in a couple of years. I’m so out of the loop with music I don’t know what’s in anymore lol. I feel so old because of that lol.

With this virus, it’s making it hard for people to go out and do stuff. I’m not complaining; I’m just stating a fact. The only thing that’s been changed drastically is I can’t go to the gym, and the house is too small to workout in. I’d end up tripping over the animals or bumping into my mom and husband. And I don’t know if I should go for walks beside it’s getting sunny and I don’t want to be in the sun lol.

So I made the lemon curd, and it tastes of lemon but not as Tarte maybe because I used Meyer lemons. Through all of my cooking, I came up with my curd recipe.

So I made the cinnamon rolls again, and they turned out this time. I’m glad I used this recipe, and they turned out perfectly. Though I didn’t put the cream cheese topping on, I kinda wanted them without. But ya never know I might change my mind. I forgot to take a picture, and I’m sure you know what cinnamon rolls look like lol.

That’s it for now if you have anything you want me to talk about just let me know.
