I woke up this morning to a light dusting of snow. As the morning went on, the snow was falling heavier.
I had to drive to Guelph, but I did not mind.
I had my trunk packed with my stand mixer, flour, milk, eggs, butter, ham, cheese, asparagus, tomato sauce and my wonderful crepes pan for a cooking demonstration at my husband’s company Intrigue Media.
My husband and his partners had a meeting and I showed them all how to make crepes and how to eat them ( well actually that was easy, I guess)
After I cleaned up, I drove home and got a call from Kelsey: The book is here!!!!
I met the lady from Fedex and drove my precious cargo home.
I was nervous, but with the help of my friends Karla and Lea, I opened it and looked at it.
Yes, I am very happy, because it is everything I hoped for and more.
This was a very long journey.
We always say, that the trip is as important as the destination and yes, the journey was a long, but wonderful one.
I learned a lot.
I opened and sold a bakery/restaurant on my way.
My daughters both met their partners on my way.
I became a grandmother on my way.
I met new friends on my way.
And now, my book is here.
I reached my first goal and more to come, more books, more goals, new ventures.
Life is exciting and even though I am almost 56, I am looking forward to many more new adventures…
My first Mount Everest is climbed, now to K2, selling it…
I am looking forward to book signings and meeting new people. I hope I will give them the pleasure for cooking beautiful meals back..because my way of cooking is simply easy and fun.
The cook will be able to sit at the dinner table, people will be digging in and enjoying the food and the cook will not be exhausted…
I am sitting down with a glass of red wine now.
