Hello everyone! How are you all doing? Today is "Wellness Friday"! And, I have some Flower Sugar goodness for you, too. I think I've died and gone to "Flower Sugar" heaven, really, (oh and home-baked cinnamon roll heaven)!!
This week was kind of an "off" week on the weekly tasks, yet a great opportunity for growth. We had an unexpected life circumstance that challenged us in the new things we are learning, in particular non-resistance to what is, to life, and enjoying the present moment. While we didn't sail through it perfectly, we handled it with much more love and compassion than we would have before. Amidst dealing with this life circumstance, we found many moments of peace and joy. So, all in all - we give ourselves a big ole :) for the week!
For the past several weeks, McStudly and I have been reading this:
It is a powerful, transformative book. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone, no matter where you find yourself in life, but especially to those who find themselves unhappy, stressed out, and heavily burdened by life, to those who are longing to find authentic joy, peace, love and compassion.
I say we are reading it together, but we are not reading the same book. Apparently, McStudly finds this
Now, amidst life and circumstances, I have been thoroughly enjoying making my version of the McStudly quilt!
The weather is cooler here - and I love the change of seasons. We have so many traditions and special things to enjoy in each season. I love the cool, crisp air of fall! And, I enjoy fall cooking! In the summer, we enjoy fresh and light food. When it gets cooler, we move into what I call "down home" or "comfort" food mode. So, I baked a batch of Hay Hand Bread yesterday
