Just got another rave review for my books. It’s a bittersweet moment. I’m a bit sad that I’m retiring them, but it makes me ridiculously happy to know that people have enjoyed them — and found them useful.
My pudding never solidified last night. I stuck it in the freezer this morning. We’ll see what happens. But I’m not too worried about it.
And I almost had the idea for my side business last night. I even registered for a state tax license thingie. But then the domain was taken, and I started to hate the name. Then this morning, as I was looking for non-existence ice cream carts to buy, I realized that this isn’t what I want to do. This isn’t what’s pulling me.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”—Steve Jobs
I haven’t been able to get the story of the grilled cheese guy out of my head. I know I’m supposed to do something with this. I have this incessant urge deep in my gut… I have to do something with this driving pull that’s growing within.
I love making things in the kitchen. I’ve realized that my favorite things to make are of the dessert variety. I’m making pudding tonight after I cook dinner. I think I may try my hand at waffles as well. Or I may just wait until tomorrow night for that.
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with this, but I have to do something.
As I was making four dozen tea cakes last night (I’d been craving them for weeks), Boyfriend told me the story of Bread.Butter.Cheese. He told me this story after realizing just how much I love making things.
I went to bed, had some fuct up dream, and woke up thinking about this grilled cheese story. I learned more about it, and started wondering… Boyfriend told me this story because he said I remind him of this guy. And I actually had a business once where I was handing out foodstuffs in brown paper bags for $5 each. And I do love making things in the kitchen…
Yep. I thought it would be used for something else, but we went with a different (read: much cooler) name. I’ll probably be putting it back together soon. I may also be rebooting another business of mine, should I feel so inclined. (For those of you who liked my bath cubes, I’d love to hear your thoughts on that idea.)
But yeah. For right now, it’s nothing but blankness.
