Another day from the 30 Days of Truth Prompt for Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on. Bonus posts this week!! The 10th will be “A Memory Shared” and then the 12th will be Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
As much as I write, the compliments are surprisingly few. Typically remarks that I write a lot and a few compliments that my writing is good. If you have not figured it out by now, I had a few years with low self-esteem, and I do worry about my writing.
Something I get a lot of compliments on…
Two things. As far as something I can do, my baking skills have always gotten compliments. I had the easy oven and started baking cakes then. When I first got on my own, I made cakes quite often. Now I bake breads, cookies and pies. Recipes to me are guidelines. I replace things with what I have, or what I think will compliment better.
In a few weeks, neighbors expect to receive Cinnamon Apple bread. It is a zucchini bread recipe with this, that and the other changed. Gradually modified into the current recipe. Today I made Lebkuchen, you can read more about that story in 2 days. It actually followed the recipe other than making icing with orange juice.
The physical thing people compliment me on is my smile. People tell me it lights up, it’s beautiful, that I shine… *blushing*
Smile, Bake, Laugh, Love
