Baked Feelings

It's been way too hot to bake this summer, but I got home from a family gathering today and decided it was time.

Those who know me understand that I'm somewhat socially awkward. I don't say the right things at the right time. I never know if I should hug someone or just shake their hand. I don't always pick up on innuendo or insinuation. The only feeling I can express easily is anger. I cry easily, so I don't share intimate feelings very well.  It's a frustrating way to exist.

I've learned that I've been using baking as a way to show my feelings. My sister in law has had a rough time for the last month or so. After seeing her briefly today, I figured I'd come home and make her some lemon blueberry muffins. It wasn't the best batch I've ever made (I didn't have a lemon, but I did use lemon yogurt), but hopefully, the love is evident. If they could speak, they'd say "I wish I could do more for you."

I'm working on expressing myself better, but for now, this'll have to do.
