As for this week, nothing special has happened. I got upset a few time, angry (in-laws in the house!!!), I felt terribly tired and frustrated (not only with kids but with myself, as well). So… I would say: life as usual.
Just goofing off with No. 1
Such a playful little creature she is.
And sometimes it is hard to keep up with her.
Late at night I baked an apple pie. The next day we were going to visit friends and I had offered to bring something sweet.
Having said that, I’m reading a book “A tiger in the kitchen” where I have found words which couldn’t describe any better of what I feel:
Outside the kitchen, life was complicated and meandered in unpredictable and uncontrollable ways. But with my mixer in hand and two sticks of softened butter in front of me, the possibilities were thrilling and endless – and the outcome was entirely governed by me. There are few things more basic or satisfying than kneading a ball of dough or rolling one out. Having a mind than can not stay quiet, I’ve never been able to meditate without going stir-crazy. But give me a ball of dough and the not-so-distant dream of pipping hot cherry tart with a beautiful lattice weave top and a generous sprinkling of confectioners sugar, and a feeling of serenity washes over me. My mind instantly hushes.
On Sunday we went to visit friends and had such a great time.
We came back home late at night and that’s an artsy snap while washing down my make-up.
Drinking lemon-cucumber water. So yummy and refreshing.
My morning routine.
Drinking coffee first.
After that making face scrub/mask from leftover coffee grounds, honey and coconut oil.
Do you see what I saw?!?!?
That night I pointed those two crazy looking hair to my husband and instead of saying: “oh, that’s nothing, honey, just two gray hair” he started picking through my hair and pointing out each grey string he saw… I had counted about 7!!!!
Totally out of my comfort zone piece
Today morning, while attempting for the first time homemade pop tarts:
I came up with an idea for this week Bonnie’s theme - “container(s)”.
Have you ever felt like your mind is a one huge container filled with many wanted and unwanted thoughts?
Very often I feel like this container of mine is a mess. There is no order in it. It’s a labyrinth in which I get lost all the time!
I feel like a hoarder who has a very hard time to clean up her container full of unnecessary things. Things that are bad, rotten or rusted… things from the past that brings nothing but bad memories and feelings. But I hold on to them.
Wish you all a wonderful weekend, my friends.
