So my husband has been wonderfully "domestic" lately. I put that in quotes because he's not really domestic, he's just been doing some domestic activities. Mostly baking and doing some of the dishes that I never seem to find time to do. But seriously, in the last four days he has made:
no-bake cookies (his specialty :) )
homemade chocolate chip cookies.
They all turned out fabulously. Last week I had him make no-knead whole-wheat bread. It was in the More-With-Less cookbook, and I figured, hey, no-knead! Easy, right? Have the hubby make it. The bread turned out tasty, but very, very dense. Read: cutting it gave me writer's cramp. Or I guess bread-cutter's-cramp. Anyway, this week I had him do white bread instead, which turned out really good. And the cookies were all fantastic.
But tonight we made banana bread. It was fun, working together. But then we were watching Smallville, and I left the bread cooling in the pans too long.
It fell apart as I tried to ease it out of the pans. :(
I nearly cried. Especially because I was going to give a loaf away, but it's not very pretty anymore. It does smell good, however, and I know it will taste great! (I haven't had any yet because I just had two fabulous chocolate chip cookies and a mug of vanilla tea!)
That's how life goes. It's never perfect. It might look really, really messy sometimes. And often I goof up so much I just want to cry. But that's ok, because I'm human. I'll never be perfect, no matter how much I try or how good my intentions are. Things will definitely not always go the way I want them to.
I know, though, that life is and will always be good. I will always have more blessings than I can count. I will always live forgiven and loved by God. And sometimes, life will even be great. :)
