Jane The Capricorn (Very True leh ... haha...)

A cool and quiet woman. Once she is mad she can be very fierce.

In her opinion, woman is not just a flower or decoration at home or at an office.

She likes to control and hide her weak emotions. She will never try to change anyone, but she will learn to accept them as they are. If she does not like someone, she will not comments or criticize but she will completely ignore that person.

She hate plastic and an artificial flower because it make her feel that you are not being sincere. She loves real flower and it's scent. She loves a guy who wear after shave cologne. If you are a type of a guy who wear your Jean one month before washing, or wear an old sneaker, then you can forget about her.

She loves music and nature even there is a rare case otherwise. She loves to go picnic in nature, so if you don't have so much time for her, you can take her fishing too.

She is not as jealous as Aquarius or Leo woman, but do not cross the line O.K. Better not to see she gets mad, especially in front of public when she feels like loosing face.

She has her own goal in life and does not care if you have a doctorate degree or not, if she thinks you are not bright then she will not care about you at all. She likes smart people by character not by certificate shown.

She does not like a dreamer who talk about his dream but never put his hands in action to make it happens. Don't bother to tell her "everyone is doing it, you should do it too", or "I think you should do it, it's good for you", because she will do what she wants to do only.

She is a cool type and will not nag, so easy on your ears. She is a slow but sure type. She will always respect and honor you and will never try to make you loose your face. If she loves you, she will help you in anything you do.

She likes to help people and expect nothing in return. If she asks you for a favor and does not get one, she will feel very disappoint. She has a high hope and a high faith and beliefs in her own confident than believing in "Luck".

"The Baker's Apprentice" by Judith R. Hendricks

Finished reading this book last Friday, it writes about the personal and love life of a female baker Wyn Morrison who is one of the shareholder at Seattle's Queen Street Bakery.

From what i know, this is actually a continuation of Hendrick's first novel 'Bread Alone'. Maybe I will check for availability at the library.

In this book, Wyn is satisfied with the direction in her bakery life and anticipating new relationship with Mac, a struggling writer who seems quite conservative about his past life. Even when they grow closer physically, the self-defiant nature of Mac cause Wyn to developed an emotional distance when he refuses to share his personal information about his life and past. To complicate matters, Wyn's divorce from her husband
is facing obstacles and isn't getting wrapped up as she hopes. Her romance with Mac comes to an edge and to soothe the strain, he decided to head of to Alaska to 'figure things out'.

When love life of Wyn keeps hitting roadblock, she finds comfort in her bread baking session at the bakery. Yet managing the bakery is another problem - cash flow. To cut cost, they decided to hire a baking apprentice and an angry young woman, Tyler is chosen. Wyn's blunt, straightforward and caretaking attitude draws Tyler to look upon her as her mentor.

Due to replacement of landlord and rental dispute,
Seattle's Queen Street Bakery finally had to wind up. Although sad but the ending for Wyn and Mac had been a reunion one.

Hendrick's true-to-life characters let readers get intimately acquainted with. The author's ability to convey how the characters are feeling is affective. It is definitely an enjoyment read for me.
