Thank goodness for Pandora Internet Radio.
On a baking day (usually weekends), it’s typical for me to start my day by prepping my ingredients, bowls, cookie sheets, and etc., but another necessity for me is Pandora, a free service that lets me pick my music genre and I never have to change the station again. I tune into 70’s R&B; I listen to Earth Wind & Fire, The Isley Brothers, Brothers Johnson, etc., and it lifts my mood and energizes my spirit
So, when I need to make twelve dozen cookies, I don’t feel pressed because while the mixer is creaming sugar and butter, I’m measuring dry ingredients and grooving to the beat. When I’m scooping cookie dough and waiting for them to bake, I’m dancing through the kitchen and singing like an American Idol reject. I’m doing something I love and listening to music that takes me to a place and time of my choice.
I’m a true believer that things can be as difficult or as easy as I make it, and Pandora helps take the tedium out of repetitive routines. All day long, I’m dancing and baking, baking and dancing. Life is good!
Peace & Blessings.
