This summer is a summer of many firsts for me. One first was planting my own garden. After a cucumber plant died and there were no signs of life for over two weeks I was getting a little concerned.... But, lo and behold, after a rainstorm I have sprouts! I was very excited.

I have also determined that I am going to try getting my nails done. I just did today; I love them even though they do make typing very difficult. They are very cute and feminine.
Another thing I am trying this summer while I have a good kitchen is cooking and baking lots of new things that I have always wanted to attempt to make. This last week it was a pumpkin cheesecake. It was delicious and a huge success, and I was extremely proud that I managed it with no supervision.
Here it is (I was very excited and took many pictures):
Next on the agenda is a Chocolate Souffle.
