domestic goddess

There are all kinds of domestic goddesses out there. Women, who whip up a meal from nothing, bake scrumptious cakes, knit the most complicated fair isle sweaters :) and women who can artfully decorate a home from thrift shop finds.

I absolutely love to while away my time perusing Nigella and Alice Waters' cookbooks - I leaf through Jane Brocket's Gentle Art of Domesticity, and I read a gazillion blogs written by accomplished women.  These things don't quite come easily to me but I love that day off work, no school courses, and I can make chocolate chip cookies and roast a chicken....and, ya'all sit down for this one, start some SOCKS. It all looks kind of nice on photographs - let's face it, anything can look nice in a Le Creuset pan, but this all took time and primping. Now I just want  to sit and eat.

Happy weekend.
