When my Chicas come home, I'm frequently forced to take a step back; to marvel that my babies aren't babies anymore. They're all grown up but, in a sense, will always be the little girls I carried.
Ella Numera Una worked on a project over the Christmas weekend. While both my gals spend a preponderance of the day tapping away on their laptops, Una seemed a tad more engaged than usual. That, plus yesterday, when I tried to cuddle and take a glance over her shoulder, she shrugged away from me.
She had a secret, for sure.
But when Una wrapped things up yesterday evening, she showed me she still has the element of surprise down pat.
Presenting Ella Numera Una, the latest of the Blogger Chicks in La Familia Scribe. Her newest effort, how do I boil water? was inspired by her fondness for The Food Network and her strong survival instinct.
"After 18 years of having home-cooked meals by Mom, four years of a dining hall and pizza delivery, I had to start relying on myself (apparently, you need to cook in order to eat)," Ella Numera Una says in her new blog's "About Me."
"I was terrified at first, but soon learned cooking isn't too hard and can even be fun," galfriend says.
Please drop by how do I boil water? to catch favorite recipes, observations and food critiques. Una characterizes her new creative effort as an "experiment." And she'd love to have the blogging community join her in trying new things.
