Taking care of a little cousin isn’t always easy. I thank God for Lala, my older cousin. She always had patience with me. She always showed me love. How did she have so much patience? I loved taking care of Nohely and Herlis but the latter was most difficult. Feeding our food, doing our daily activities, etcetera became difficult tasks to complete. She is little, it is understandable. Is this completely normal? I don’t know. Nurture vs nature, right? I guess. I’m not too sure the exact details or maybe I do. She did eat this Zesty Shrimp Salad, though, so we couldn’t have done that bad.
On July 4th, our friend Christine came to visit as well. Had I mentioned that? Well, she did and it was fun! She was part of the BBQ and behind the scenes of cooking all the yummies. I swear I will finish posting those recipes, stat. I have been working on recollecting all the stories I have yet to tell you all.
How does one contain all these stories, emotions and feelings to oneself? I truly don’t know. As for myself, this blog is healing and allows me to share stuff. I have so many recipes to share, including this incredible Zesty Shrimp Salad.
