Its all to do with the kitchen.
Its where I go when I feel good, in control and organised, its where I'm in nourishing and nurturing.
When things are out of control there are dirty dishes everywhere and food prepared in advance ... what's that?? Actually what food?
This week I have made cake, muffins, and two varieties of cookies ...
Two loaves of kneaded bread and a first try at experimental finger buns. I started to get right elbow pain so took a break from the kneading.
I have made pickles and roasted tomatoes. I have Shopped for fruit and Veg, I love opening up the fridge and seeing all the colours peeping through the crisper, the full fruit bowls, strawberries and grapes there for the nibbling.
Today I made hamburger patties, A pie and a batch of bolognaise sauce which I made up into pasta lunches for my love : ) So my freezer is full of meat now some pre prepared meals and some muffins too, I still have plans for pizzas and Vege stock ... Its too hot now for stock and Pizza requires kneading so is on hold.
I'm starting to feel a bit irritable, restless ... My other crafts are feeling neglected. A pile of old T shirts call to me from a chair, 'make us into shorts'! A bag of inherited fabric calls to me from a corner in the lounge room where Dave plopped it last week 'fold me and put me away and dream of what you can make with me', a partially finished paper pursuit calls from the cupboard 'It won't take long to wrap me up'.
Their voices are not quite loud enough to rip my anchor from the kitchen where it is holding me fast.
Perhaps now I have a planner sorted ... no not my original ordered pages ... that's in a paypal dispute and claim ... with a non responsive seller. Grrr. Nonetheless I have a planner up and running now. So perhaps in the next few days I won't need the kitchen to be my primary focus area for organisation.
This one was sent off to the USA for one of the D2E family members. So hopefully soon I'll regain a more even balance and you'll see some sewing or paper craft here and not just the very bountiful product of my work in the kitchen
