I loved receiving a comment yesterday suggesting that I take a picture of me reading a magazine with the title "gone fishing." Well more to the point I'm going to thrift today. I plan on really trying to take it slow and make sure I enjoy the day with no pressure to find anything that I.have.to.sell.
Yesterday I spent three hours with Cathe, sipping coffee and discussing my goals and future of blogging. I left renewed and inspired. I picked up Keiran from his half day of school and took him to ice cream at Screaming Mimi's in Sebastool, followed by a visit to a thrift store.
We finished our day together grocery shopping. Two moments stand out from yesterday. The first is when we were eating ice cream. We were each on our own bench although the benches were side by side in a park in Sebastol. He said to me "I want to sit next to you and be closer." What a tug at my heart. The second thing happened when he was reading Martha Stewart Living on the ride home and he exclaimed "this is the best magazine ever!" Of course it was the Halloween edition which he is excited about. He's counting down the day on the fridge. Spending time with him yesterday was the perfect and needed reminder to slow down.
Cooking more is also going to help remind me to take it easy. I plan on spending a lot more time on my foodie blog Flavor Stitch and in the kitchen. Here's a favorite recipe of mine from my past Chicken Teriyoki.
Do you have a favorite taste from the past that you have tried to replicate as an adult? What is it?
