I feel like a moment here. I am laying on my couch, writing this post and I am gazing off into the courtyard of my apartment complex. The sun is shining, there is a nice summer breeze blowing through the trees making them rustle. It is actually a beautiful sight to see. Yeah, I am having a moment here.
Sometimes you need that moment to stop and look outside and see the world going on around you. In my case, it was nature I was looking at. I have many things going on in my life, from working on this blog to my job as a phlebotomist, life can become hectic. So taking a moment and stepping back just to see what is going on or even to see what you accomplished is always a good thing.
Sometimes you just want the simplest of things. Nothing real fancy, just simple. It is funny, growing up we didn’t have half the stuff we have today. No smartphones, didn’t really have a computer, video games were at an arcade, not in your living room. Friends were people you actually saw, not names on a computer screen. Maybe it is me, but just seem simpler the times without all the technology, life seems less stressful. Then again, I was just a kid.
Don’t get me wrong, technology is great. I can not live without a smartphone or a laptop but just seems the more advanced we become in technology, things we have in life like manners, common sense, and imagination have been disappearing. They do say “simplicity at it’s finest.” I wish we could go back to simpler ways sometimes.
Speaking of simple, some the best recipes are the simple ones. This corn cake, there is nothing fancy about it, it is very simple to make and it has a nice taste. I was craving some, I used to get it at a Mexican restaurant, I loved the sweet taste of it. I was telling a friend how I was craving it, and she gave me a recipe that her ex-boyfriend’s mom would do, who was Mexican. This a very good cake and so simple, simplicity at it’s finest.
