Things continue for me in their uneventful, yet somehow never boring, way. I expected to be able to relax this weekend a little bit, but that's not happening! Yesterday a friend came over and we hung out all day. She and my dad took me to practice driving, because unlike me she has her license. I really should be trying harder to get it, since school ends in four months and I leave for college shortly after that. She and I are also supposed to go to Walmart today. So I need to work on scholarship applications before she gets here, or I'll never work on them. xP

Nothing puts a damper on creativity like worrying about things like my license, schoolwork, and scholarships. I am finding time to work on my quilt, though! I'm still cutting the squares out of my old jeans. I haven't started sewing it yet. I am not very good at sewing, with a machine or by hand. I'm impatient and I rush things. I want this quilt to be good, though, so I need to slow down when I'm working on it.

I have a question for you all. Has anyone made Amish Friendship Bread before? Someone my dad knows gave him a slice at work and now he is raving about it, saying it's delicious. He wants me to make it. People in my family have been given the starter before, but no one ever uses it. The fact that there are some clearly perishable ingredients sitting on a counter for 10 days just makes us wary. I have the starter recipe and the directions for what to do after I make that, but I just don't know if I want to. xD Am I being silly about it?

Lastly I know of a new blog that some people may be interested in checking out! Nydia posted about it earlier, but some of you may not read her blog. I have recently started reading Dani's new blog Magickal Mommy. Dani is going to be a mommy soon, and her blog is a treasure trove of interesting information. I believe she plans on sharing some spells and recipes as well as showing us things like the truly amazing grimoire she created and her garden-to-be. I love it and I hope some other people will, too!


  1. Just do it Tori! I didn't get my liscence until I was 29!!!! I was too scared to drive. When I finally "just did it", it changed my life! I cannot believe I lived so long without driving.

    As for the bread, I hear ya! I wouldn't want to chance leaving ingredients out for so long- sounds like a breeding ground for bacteria. Try looking on the internet for something similar?
    Have a great day!

  2. The Amish Friendship Bread made its rounds here. Those who did it; loved it. I don't respond well to chain anything. LOL! Anyway, there were no health related issues in the people who tried it. ;)

  3. Aww, you're awesome for giving me a mention! I finally learned how to "follow" a blog today but I won't let me follow you. Hmmph. I'll have to try later....

    Thanks for all your comments and for stopping by all the time to check me out!

    Oh I got my license late too-at 30ish. I am still terrified of being in cars, but oddly not when I'm in the driver's seat! I do miss that wonderful excuse to not go out, but I probably wouldn't be married now if I wasn't driving! Seriously.
