NaBloPoMo’08, Day 16: Domestic Goddess

I spent the early part of this afternoon making both pumpkin whoopee pies and chocolate cupcakes.  I like the way the whoopee pies came out (well, I got my father’s approval, and he’s not one to mince his words), but the cupcakes were fairly average.  I personally don’t care for chocolate, in the least, so I can’t tell you if the cupcakes were good or not.

I might be a woman who is after a career, and alphabet soup after my name, and aspirations to run my own business and spend my own money on my own things, but I have a very domestic side to me.  Martha Stewart Living for December came in the mail the other day, and I’ve already leafed through it about three or four times, marking off different things I want to do this year.  I love to cook, bake, decorate and keep house.

I don’t think that these two traits are at odd with one another – in fact, I think it probably ups my street value.
