Taking Stock 1

I am excited to share with you my first 'Taking Stock' post. I was inspired by The day book blog. You should visit the blog by the way. I hope you enjoy reading!

Making: a cup of lemon coffee would be great for this weather. It’s raining.

Cooking: more vegetarian foods because I’ve just found me a vegan friend. I think I’m becoming a vegetarian myself; only that I will be a vegan who eats chicken choma and fish. ;)

The Birth of A Dream

I knew from an early age that I wanted to become a doctor. A surgeon. This was my dream. My calling. The idea of cutting up people’s bodies, smiling at their internal organs and maybe stealing one or two thrilled me. So much that I performed my first surgical procedure at 11 years. Not on a human being, of course. It was a damn housefly! Now, if you were brought up in the village, you know that houseflies were a huge part of the family. This especially if the kitchen (not part of the main house but an outside kitchen) was adjoined to the goat shed. I don’t know the connection but well, our kitchen was adjoined to the barn and to me this was the reason for the many houseflies.
