Flour used to be on the shopping list monthly, along with butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and other assorted extracts. The counter was cleared for rolling out dough and filling cookie sheets and cake pans.
Now the Nordicware is getting dusty, as are the muffin trays and cookie sheets. My usual schedule for spring baking--Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day--passed by on the calendar without a single batch of dough made. I was going to bake this weekend for a baby shower today, and will have to run to the grocery store before work instead.
I used to love to bake! I've blogged before about the zen state I can get into when my hands are in the flour. Last year, I lamented the decrease in my baking time, so this is definitely a pattern.
Is my love for baking going away, or is it just life, getting in the way of a hobby? I know what I was doing yesterday instead of baking--compliance training for work for over two hours. I also spent over an hour prepping a homemade crockpot veggie soup (which was delicious!)...and doing laundry, watering the plants outside, getting my clothes ready for work, and taking a nap because this time change is still hard for me.
Maybe life is just taking over.
