The Year of the Awesome

With my powers as princess of everything I am officially declaring it the year of the awesome. Sometimes I hesitate to do things for the sake of practicality or time. I've been trying to be even more awesome lately but still financially responsible. I just don't want to put off all of the little things that are easily delayed. If it's at all feasible for me to do something awesome or be more awesome this year; I'm going to do it. Here's a sampling of awesome stuff I've done in the past few months that I hesitated to try at first.

1. I cooked fried squash blossoms even though I didn't really know what they were. Apparently we don't see squash blossoms in markets or restaurants because you have to cook them pretty quickly after you pick them. Also, people would find eating flowers to be weird. They are delicious and totally worth growing squash (at least the blossoms) again next year.

2. I fixed the garbage disposal that had a bobby pin stuck in it. It was one of the few repair jobs that google hasn't been able to help me with because apparently it's never happened to anyone before. If it does happen to you just let me know I'm awesome at fixing it.

3. Smashed a geode open and found a crystal. I don't know why this took me so long or why it's been on my life list; but I did it and I found crystals. If smashing open geodes was a job I would have a calling in life.

What awesome things are you going to do this year?

I'm pretty sure only awesome people cook squash blossoms.

I don't know that I can outdo the squash blossoms, but I hope to try zip-lining. And keep my house clean--that would be truly awesome!
