Recently, we bought a magazine with a beautiful chocolate dessert on the cover. I made it and it was yummy. There was also a chocolate souffle recipe in the magazine, which I made and is pictured above. It turned out amazing! My son said I always have good luck with the first try. I guess I need to make it again to see if it wasn't a fluke.
I volunteer weekly at Centre Volunteers in Medicine. It's only two weeks but it gives me so much meaning. I love it. I love meeting the patients. I enjoy working with the other volunteers and staff. I'm lucky to work with a great nurse. While I think I would like to work full-time, I know I would miss this special place if I did.
I don't know what it is about traveling. Is it seeing the sights? Meeting the people? Eating the food? The escape from reality? What ever it is, I love it. I know longer work at the airport, but it's OK. It's good to be grounded and I enjoyed the crazy trips while they lasted. I still have a long list of places I want to go: Istanbul, Cape Town, Buenos Aires. I wouldn't mind going to New Zealand again. We are going to Southern France this summer to see my sister-in-law's vineyard and we will fly to Barcelona and then drive up--thanks to my father-in-law. I can't wait to show the kids a little bit of Spain.
And finally, singing. I have a duet partner and we will do our first official gig this Saturday. I must be getting nervous because I had a strange dream last night about it. I really hope we do a good job. It would be fun to make this thing become a reality (although I will have to learn how to stay up late).
