CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! I ACTUALLY MADE THOSE .... BY MYSELF!
My sweet sister-in-law has been trying to 'domesticate' me for 6 years or so. She succeeded this summer by getting me to make raspberry freezer jam. She knows I will drop everything and run if the word 'RASPBERRY' is uttered. The jam turned out heavenly and we are still enjoying the benefits of it! :-)
About a month ago, I took the little ones for a play date with their cousins. While we were visiting, she asked if I wanted to learn to make bread. I had expressed some interest a few weeks prior. I said sure! So, she babysat me and told me what to do. I did all the work and they ended up turning out beautifully!
I decided about two weeks later to be brave and try to make some all by myself. My first try at it solo ended up pretty good. I think I was so afraid of adding too much flour that I didn't add enough. On Monday, I decided to try again. I got the flour just right and they turned out wonderful!
I am far from being 'domesticated' but I'm getting closer. I still can't sew, crochet, or come up with my own craft. I don't make cutesy handouts for my church lessons. I keep my hair "boy short" because I hate doing hair. I dress like a tomboy because that is what feels comfortable. I hate to cook and despise cleaning. But you know what?! I'm getting there little by little and THAT is what counts. Besides, I don't think I'm so bad. ;-)
