Yesterday I had really had it. Enough already! I yanked myself together and I forced myself to get out and take a walk. That helped a lot. Then I threw in some laundry so I could feel useful and get myself moving and having clean clothes is always nice. And I just couldn’t shake this complete and utter need to bake. I was a bit concerned that I would be pushing it physically but mentally my mind was ready to explode. I needed to do something with my hands. I find that when I create with my hands it helps my mind immensely. My soul was ACHING TO BAKE.
So I did. I baked yellow cupcakes with vanilla creme filling. Cupcakes are kinda hard for me to bake usually because of the extra hand, wrist and arm movements they take to scoop the batter in the little cups but I wanted them so I made them. Good ole Ms. Betty Crocker and I got together and made them actually. We had a rockin’ time! And you know what? They weren’t as hard for me to make as they used to be. Sometimes I gotta just try and do it. I’m glad I did.
Turns out these were pretty darn yummy! And because I baked yesterday I’m feeling better today mentally. And a lot of the time when I’m feeling better mentally I feel better physically. So today is a much much better day overall!
Now I’m just trying not to eat the rest of the cupcakes that are sitting in the kitchen calling to me…
