My birthday (the big one nine) is Sunday, the 26th.  Shouldn’t I be happy?  it’s weird…

i guess i just feel a little down….

no, i’m not depressed or anything.

things just don’t seem to be sunshiney and looking up i guess

it’s cold, it’s rainy, i am sick again–with that HORRID cold, and i’m just tired and worn out

and i couldn’t get a cute “happy birthday” picture to go into my post.

NOW VOTE!

4 Apples cut into fourths 

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup brown sugar

Some cinnamon, and some less nutmeg(dash)

 

Put your apples in a saucepan and pour the water over them and cook over med/high heat stirring to break them up.  (water needs to have a constant boil)  Yes, they will look like they don’t have enough water, but they do! 🙂  

After they are broken up and soft, stir in brown sugar and the cinnamon and nutmeg.  I like mine to have small pieces of soft apple left.  If you don’t, you will have to cook the apples awhile.  

This is one of my favorite sides!  I could even eat it for dessert!  ENJOY!

That’s right, my baby is back!  I should be back on this week!  Yay!  Sadly fall break is over though. 😦  Look forward to a post soon this week…probably Wednesday!  Hope all is well!!

There’s a show on CBS (I’m pretty sure!) called Worst Week.  It comes on on Mondays.  It’s rather funny.  A tad crude humor, but it’s in moderation.  But I kind of came in the middle of it, but there’s a guy and girl and I don’t believe they are married living in her parents house and she’s pregnant. They are waiting till the “perfect” time to tell her parents while everything seems to go wrong.  He’s done quite a few interesting things.  It’s just funny I guess……but I’ve felt like that guy this week!

This has been a horrible week.  First off there has been a situation going on where I have been battling God. Thankfully I’m leaning on Him for guidance now, but it’s been very hard.  I believe that with Him all things are possible.  But before when this situation arose, I just “knew” he was going to “fix” it and he didn’t and it was kind of a wake up call for me I guess. I hate SO bad it had to happen like this.  But it boils down to I’ve lost one of my best friends to an injust court system.  I’ve really been upset about this all week, so your prayers are REALLY appreciated.  For both of us. 

Then lets see, I failed a Philosophy exam I’m quite sure of this week.  I’m sorry, but it’s hard to prove the existence of God and then on the same exam prove that he DOESN’T exist.  Sorry, but I don’t think that way. I guess that’s just one of the “joys” of college life. 

And my grand conclusion is, MY BABY CRASHED.  😦  That’s right, my laptop went out on me Wednesday.  I had TONS of homework to do.  I get out of my class, go to start typing it all up and my laptop wouldn’t come on, it just kept freezing.  So it’s currently being worked on and who knows when I’ll get it back. 

But to put the icing on the cake, I have a lot of friends going through some tough times right now and it’s just getting hard to be there for everybody while you’re going through so much too.  But God’s taking care of me. 

And foody wise, I made an apple pie last night that was so YUMMY.  It made me so happy!  AND also another happy moment God blessed me with is I received a cedar chest as a surprise gift this week.  It was handmade and I was so surprised.  It’s absolutely beautiful.  God takes care of me, and I know he does you….  Have  a  happy  weekend!

First off, let me apologize for my negligence of this site!  I had told myself I would keep it up better. I enjoy doing it.  I am probably one of the very few people of my age that don’t have a myspace or facebook, so I tried to keep this up after my computer class last year just for the fun.  I have strong views against myspace and facebook.  I was into it once, and all it is, is a place to brag about yourself and put yourself out there and it is just wrong.  I know–everyone disagrees with me–but that’s my opinion!  I have a right to that, right?  But I just don’t see the use of putting personal information up like that and for those reasons.  
I promise you, my recipes and life stories are on here to put a smile on your face and make your life more enjoyable!  I HOPE!

SO, back to “Daisy”…I felt bad because I hadn’t posted a picture of my baby on here!  So there she is!  She’s my “little” stinker! Yes, she’s grown a lot!  I need to get an even newer picture!  But she is my time consumer. I have had to be extra careful to put college before puppy, friends, and free time.  I’m doing pretty good. I run home after work and we go for a walk thru our woods and we usually get done just before dark.  Then I help with dinner and after dinner I’m up till late doing homework and then I go to bed when I get done.  I’m ending up being a very tired person but it’s working.  I’m worried about when the time changes!!  😦  Also, I was sick as could be last week and Daisy missed me so much but my family helped out with giving her love.  I’m thankfully feeling better now.  

My cooking:  I have not had time to cook at all hardly.  I know, I’m sooo ashamed 😦  But between homework and my recent illness there hasn’t been much time.  I must guiltily admit that Monday night I made snickerdoodles in between homework, etc.  My mom helped me to wash some of the dishes too.  But they were sooo good.  There were only a few left today!  I’ve been sending them with dad to work.  I had an unhappy employee who had missed my baking!  You know how those employees can get without my sweetness!  HA HA!  Too many sweet teethed people out there!  😛

Hope all is well…I’m gonna try to keep this up better.  I have lots of free time between classes on Wednesday’s so I’ve been bringing my laptop so I plan to at least have 1 post a week!  I will try to have a foody one next week!  

God Bless!  Bakerista
