for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

best-moment

Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.

I would like to thank kanzensakura for awarding me the “Best Moment Award”! I hope everyone visits her blog for wonderful recipes, poetry, and devotionals. One of the things I love about blogging is “meeting” so many bloggers from around the world. I love reading about the dishes that I never heard of before and ingredients such as purple carrots and vanilla sugar. I have been inspired to try new ingredients and spices which led me to Indian dishes and adding more heat through Thai cooking.

As a Software Testing Manager my days are filled with production deadlines that must be met. My days are regimented in the respect that deadlines must be met but there is a level of creativity to determine the best way to meet those deadlines. And sometimes you only have a few hours to move the code to production! Cooking and testing have a lot in common as you start with a “recipe” and as you work with the ingredients you learn more about them. That leads you to modify recipes and create new ones. As testers we start out with a set of testing ideas that evolve as we learn more about the product under test.

Through my blog I hope to continue sharing with my friends around the world, my love of cooking, testing, and living a healthy lifestyle. Currently I am sharing with everyone my progress in Wegmans Eat Well Live Well Challenge. Today ends my second week and I think my numbers will be slightly better than week 1! I will continue my pancake series by testing out different recipes with interesting ingredients. As the weather becomes nicer I will be sharing our outdoor adventures of disc golf, biking, hiking, and other fun outings.

I enjoy so many blogs for different reasons. Here are a few that I enjoy for their wonderful photos! They are not in any particular order.

Vittle Monster A foodie who shares some wonderful food pictures! Her blog makes me hungry.

  2. Congratulations on receiving Best Movement Award! I love your testing series; I think that requires quite a bit of patience to do (of which I am trying to work on πŸ™‚ ).

      Thank you! Ironically I do not have a lot of patience! But testing is about providing information on what you witness through testing. It is investigating a problem and putting together a puzzle. I love creating testing strategies and figuring out the best way to approach a problem. πŸ™‚
