Lately I have been thinking a lot about life and what it means to me. Besides my children and family what is the one thing I would miss most in this life. I would have to say it would be the ability to create. Whether it is creating in my kitchen or on canvas or painting furniture or a room. That outpouring of my soul is what makes me feel alive. I am so grateful for the ability to create in so many ways.
Indian food, is my latest craze as I find the flavors so enticing. You feel a little like a mad chemist, throwing this spice in and that spice in and having some amazingly tastey foods come out. Fun!
