It's true, my life revolves around my kitchen table.
I cook, eat, read, write, blog, paint, draw, crochet, sew, 'travel around the world' via favourite blogs, drink coffee, laugh lots, cry some, discuss, enjoy my family over dinner, savour their delihghted faces when they are liking the food I made for them.
And here this first morning of the year we cut our New Year's cake. I used my mother's recipe, which is pretty much an orange-brandy-sponge cake covered with icing sugar. A delicious and very aromatic beginning trully.
It's also true that I treasure the thing I learned over the past year:
Every single thing done for the home, the cleaning, the budgeting, the mending, the crafting the cooking and baking..- its all 'worthy', and really the foundation of the family's greatest happiness and wealth.
Which brings me right back to my kitchen table which now I see as the very navel of our home life and joy.
(do you love your kitchen table?)
I hug you-
