Welcome to my little blog, where I will get the thoughts in my head out into the world. Here you will find my personal musings as well as some beginner html coding projects because I am a student web designer.
Are You Sure You Are In The Right Place?

I am writing a cookbook but’s not a cookbook that I ever hope to get published. It the Stanton family cookbook.
My mother had a notebook that contained her favorite recipes and in that notebook were some recipes that she had learned from her mother, my grandmother, and every her grandmother, my great grandmother.
Tonight I cooked a dish that is on the shortlist to get added to the cookbook.
I love food from eastern Europe especially Hungarian dishes with lots of paprika but tonight I ventured further east into Ukrainian cuisine and cooked something called vareniki.
Vareniki are a kind of stuffed dumpling that are filled with potato.
I found my Vareniki recipe at a cooking blog that’s run by a Ukrainian girl so I think they are probably authentic.
The recipe is simple. It’s a basic dough stuffed with mashed potato and served with sour cream and onion. Very tasty but I’m interested to try out next time the fruity versions. I think I’ll try the cherry stuffed vareniki next time I see cherries in the supermarket and if they live up to how I imagine they’ll be going in the Stanton family cookbook.
Who knows maybe one day my daughter or granddaughter will make them too!
Welcome to my new blog. I recently went through some personal changes in my life. I ended a long term relationship and suddenly everything was different in my life.
For starters I had time on my hands and secondly I had a need to speak. I feel I have exhausted the good will of my friends so when someone suggested to me that I start my own blog I thought it sounded like a great new hobby.
I have always been interested in webdesign but I never had the time to learn how to do it. So with my new free time I started reading about blogging, and then about wordpress and how to make a blog. It seemed a lot easier than I had previously thought so I gave it a go and can you believe it only 3 days later I have my blog online and I’m writing this.
Well… what should any wannabe blogger do… I headed straight to my nearest Starbucks, ordered a big frothy latte and plonked my big ass down next to all the other geeks with their laptops.
And here I am, writing, blogging, sipping my coffee and letting the words come flowing out. It’s rather exciting and new for me.
There is a song playing on the in store radio, I’ve heard it before and it’s words always resonate with me. Especially this line:
“Pretty little hairdo, don’t do what it used to, can’t disguise the living, all the miles that you’ve been through”
That line just about sums me up right now but of course we all grow older and we all face these hurdles in life. How to age gracefully? How to take the inevitable knocks of life and still keep smiling?
But I think we all can afford to give ourselves a break now and then. Take some time off from beating on yourself. The starbucks here has huge glass windows and the light is pouring in. Sure maybe my life isn’t exactly where I thought it would be, but all is not bad. And… I can worry about it tommorrow. I can save it for a rainy day like the song advises. You always have tomorrow for your problems.
