Tuesday, I am grateful...
...for chocolate-y snacks and taking the time to bake, for not letting food go to waste.
I had a few eggs that were coming close to expiring. So, I made two dozen chocolate muffins with them. Yes, that is a lot of muffins for two people! Luckily, my partner has a sweet tooth. And luckily, muffins are the perfect size to give away to my co-workers as well. I find a certain level of peace when I bake so it's like I'm passing it on.
I think when you go through a patch of stress, it is good to focus on and do what makes you happy and find that simple solution that may bring a calm to you. For me; it could be baking, taking a long hot bath, forgetting the dirty dishes and curling up with a book. I know it may not some like much but sometimes it is the little things that count.
