Still Recovering

Well, its a week later, and I am STILL recovering from this cold from hell!  I literally cannot remember the last time I was sick like this.  But I am definitely on the road to recovery, so I am going to concentrate on being grateful for that!

The upside to being down for a week with a cold...lots of time to read.  Since alot of you who follow my blog are bakers, you'll find this book interesting:

My Life from Scratch, by Gesine Bullock-Prado

If you haven't read this one, I strongly recommend it.  Gesine is actually Sandra Bullock's sister, although the book doesn't concentrate on that aspect hardly at all, other than it's an interesting fact.  As I read this, I found that I had alot in common with the author.  Gesine's mother was an opera singer born in Nurnberg, Germany.  My grandmother is from Stutguard (did I spell it wrong, mom?) Germany and has always truly loved opera.  Gesine seems to be a bit sarcastic and anti social, and let's face it, so am I.  :)  The book is extremely readable and informative at the same time.  Not to mention, it has some pretty good recipes scattered throughout as well.  I went to her blog and it looks like she has an actual cookbook coming out in April, which I will definitely purchase.

Oh, and I wanted to share this picture.  We had this taken of the grandkids in St. Augustine, at one of those old-time photo places.  Isn't it cute?!  Its one of the few pictures I have of them all looking at the camera and smiling at the same time!

On that note, I am going to crawl back onto my sofa with a book and resume my recovery!  :)
