Hello my fellow steemians, accept warm steem greetings from my end. It is a cold morning here and I hope everyone is faring good. Today, I will be sharing with you all my diary of Friday 05/08/2022. I wake from bed at 5:00 am receiving a phone call from my elder sister that my niece arrived safely but one of her luggages was missing. I told her to file in a complaint and she did just that. She took a selfie with my niece and send to me when they arrived home. After the chat, I logged into my steemit account and reviewed, comment and curate posts in the Steem-cameroon community.

After curating, commenting and review of posts, I had to do some house chores before entering the kitchen. Today I decided not to prepare breakfast since my kids slept late and will obviously wake up late. I decided to prepare lunch at once. I made pounded potatoes with beans.
This is one of the traditional meals prepared in my village. My kids love it so much and it’s been long I prepared this meal. I had to remove my potatoes from the bag and peeled them off, washed and put in the pot.

Later on, I arranged the other ingredients to be used, which included; salt, Maggi, palm oil, country onion, boiled beans and onion. I had to sliced the onions and put in the potatoes with all the other ingredients.
After putting everything in order, I placed the pot on the cooker and dropped a little bit of water and allow it to boil with normal heat. It boiled for about 30minutes, I checked if the water had dried off. I cannot pound it unless the water dried off if not it will be too soft and not good. I waited until the water dried off and I removed it from the cooker and used a stick to pound it until it has a desired texture.
I was done cooking at about 2:00pm and my kids had wake up at 1:00pm. Since the food was not yet ready at that time, I gave them some snacks to take while I completed with lunch. Immediately I completed cooking, I served them food and they were eating. My mum has been sick for some days now and was hospitalised in my hometown and I am not around. My sisters went to visit her and make a group call that some of us not in town could connect and spoke with her.

I was so happy after discussing with her and her situation was getting better. I took my shower, bath the kids and log into my steemit account to continue reviewing posts, comment and upvoted. This day is my curation day in Steem-cameroon community as MOD. After the curation, I selected 8 articles for booming support.
I later on engaged discussion with other MODs and Admins of Steem-cameroon community. We discussed for a while till at about 11:00pm. After the discussions, I went to bed, got into the sheet and my night sleep commenced.
