October Again

It's been a long time, I know. I'm three and half years into this journey, and excited about what's to come! It's October again, and this year I'm actually enjoying it. Fall blend coffee, yeast bread, and homemade vegetable soup tend to do that for me.

In terms of an update on the 30 Before 30 project, I have the following snippets of new news...
  • I have opened a money market account that is growing interest at a slow and steady rate. I'm saving money in the account regularly as needed for future goals, such as a house or a computer or whatnot. It feels so nice to be putting money away instead of getting a credit card.
  • This fall, I became re-certified for CPR First Aid through the school where I am working. We sat through the class, practiced on dummies, and watched a little bit of a video. It is great to know I can help protect and rescue the lives of children and adults.
  • Yesterday, I mixed, kneaded, and baked two beautiful loaves of homemade bread. I used this simple yeast bread recipe and it turned out great. Unfortunately, the last step about rubbing the bread with water made the loaves a little soggy, but I've dried them out as best as I could, and they taste great. 

Many more updates to come!
