I must admit, there are many things I would like to think I can do as a homemaker which I wasn't able to utilize when I was still living in the Philippines.  Somehow, these skills manifest themselves when I'm bored or whenever I need to use them.

Sometimes, it makes me real proud when I can do things that I never thought I can do.  For instance, I learned that it's fun to experiment with cooking and baking. That Cake decorating is so therapeutic and that

Photo and Video documentations are worth learning. That playing with beads can reveal my artistic prowess and that writing a blog can be so relaxing. That Teaching a child how to sing is so fulfilling and who would have thought that I can sleep late at night to do the laundry and iron clothes for my family?

By doing things that I haven't done before, I'm adding a little spice in my life which makes it more exciting.  There are still so many things that I have yet to learn and discover.  And I hope that one day, I would find the one that would truly define who I am.

How about you?  What have you been doing lately?
