A lot has happened in the past few days. To put it mildly. Over a third of the world’s population is in lockdown. Almost all of the businesses in New Zealand are closed. We are allowed out of our homes only to go to the supermarket or to access healthcare, or to get fresh air and exercise. We are working from home, if there is work we can do – so many New Zealanders have no work anymore – you can’t bartend or cut hair or work in forestry when you’re stuck in the house.
In the midst of this, a lot happened to me, too, which is why I’m starting this blog. I finished up one job and started another this week (they ended up overlapping somewhat which is unusual but was necessary in these weird and busy times). I’m not going to say too much about my work except that its necessary and will be hard – not physically, but emotionally.
While my new job will be difficult, I’m expecting that I will have some extra time in my schedule to allow myself to explore other interests, and to do something a little more lighthearted. Which is where the idea of Liminal Spacecakes comes in.
Between 30 March 2020 (which is when I was initially meant to start the new job) until 1 April 2021, I am going to bake one hundred cakes, from one hundred different recipes. Two cakes a week, give or take. And I’m going to blog along the way.
Do you want to hear where the idea for this came from? I’ll tell you in my next blog post.
