Vanilla, chocolate, or something else entirely?
I like Vanilla ice cream. I’m not so crazy about chocolate, once in a while I like chocolate cake.
My favorite is peanut butter cookies, although I eat other flavored cookies but peanut butter is the best for me.
Among cakes my most favorite is strawberry short cake. I used to bake a lot once but now I’ve almost stopped baking.My daughter has taken over, she loves to bake cakes, cookies. Most of the time she bakes chocolate cheesecake, and chocolate chip cookies.
When I want cream cheese cake I like cream cheese with the rest of the ingredients, no chocolate.
I do not indulge in sweet stuff any more, they have too many calories and I do not like to put on too much weight.
Chocolate and Peanut butter went for a walk one day, Chocolate boasted how it was the favorite of all the humans in the world, Peanut Butter was equally proud of himself ,he bragged how a sandwich is not delicious unless it’s made with peanut butter.
The two got into an argument , they got hold of a passer by to find out who was more popular, the guy had no clue, he never heard of either, he said”sorry” and moved on.
Next they saw a little kid and asked, “Hey little boy you like chocolate or peanut butter?”
I do not like chocolate or peanut butter, I threw up when I ate a chocolate bar and I’m allergic to peanut butter.
Both Chocolate and Peanut Butter were completely disheartened, they were sad to know they couldn’t find anyone who likes them,just at that very moment, they heard a commercial on TV, “Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a marriage made in Heaven”,they were so delighted to hear it they hugged each other and promised never to fight again!
Have you ever been addicted to anything or worried that you were? Have you ever spent too much time and effort on something that was a distraction from your goals? Tell us about it.
If you call reading an addiction ,yes I was addicted to reading Paulo Coelho’s books for quite some time.
I discovered him after reading his best seller and bought all his books available in our local store. I wasn’t distracted I just read his books any chance I got.
In the morning after breakfast was a good time to read his books, it’s the time when I didn’t have anything important that I must do, lunch was simple I’d grab two slices of bread and melt some cheese or put some peanut butter, this was a simple sandwich for me which took five minutes to prepare and another five to eat.I’d then read the book.
All my cooking was done before supper which was not a problem,I’d just put the book away and prepare supper.After supper, I’d wash the dishes and then go back to reading until all the books of Paulo was finished.
Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it ,or do you prefer to rely only on yourself?
It is easy for me to ask for help from people I know.I try to do it myself first if after struggling for a while I’m unable to do the task I think I can do, I ask for help.
Once I tried hard to open a jar of peanut butter, I kept trying but could not. I went to my next door neighbor to see if she could help. She tried and was not successful, it made me feel better, she let her sister who was visiting try, the sister opened it easily. I thought my neighbor and I loosened it which is why the sister was able to do it without trouble.
There are tasks I find difficult to do, such as mowing the lawn and snow shoveling, I let the professionals take care of it.
