Oh Valeria...

Today Val came over after church... It's been so weird not being able to see Val everyday like we used to, but I am so thankful that we still share church so we can stay connected! Well Val was kind enough to come over to teach me to knit! We listened to music, watched This American Life, talked about James Franco... and attempted to make pumpkin scones. Actually everything was running pretty seamlessly. We had made the dough, put it on cookie sheets, and popped them in the oven. We were cleaning up when I realized it seemed a little smoky. I asked Val if it looked smoky and she said it did a little bit. It dawned on me that the scones were still in the oven so I opened the over and was greeted by clouds of smoke! The paper we had put on the cookie sheets was burned and smoking! We had to open the doors and turn on the fan. We made it out alive, and still ate our scones:) All in all it was a great day, but this incident further confirmed to me that I should never cook.

I'm Currently Reading...

Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte. I am definitely surprised at how much I am enjoying this book. In reality it is semi-mundane, but totally pleasant and very well written. I highly recommend this book!

When I grow up...

I have recently come up with some great ideas for my next career... I thought I would share a couple of the greatest ideas...

1) Petting Zoo Owner

2) Personal assistant for Ira Glass.

4) Voice on Adventures in Odyssey.

5) Starbucks Taste-Tester.

6) Any kind of critic (book, tv, movie...)

7) And of course, Stay at home friend.

If there were absolutly no limitations... What would be your unrealistic career dream???
