You may have noticed that I've not posted for a while. It has not been by choice, as I have not been able to do all the things I've been used to (cooking, baking and of course, posting) and I had to sit back and learn to be patient with life and myself.
As if life wasn't hectic enough, a few weeks ago I had suffered a fall, in the house of all places :-( which landed me in the emergency room in a a lot of pain. It turned out, I had a broken bone in my upper arm. Thankfully it was what the doctor called a "good break" ( meaning it was in a good place) but needless to say, it was still very painful. I was not able to do many things that before the accident, I took for granted. I had to rely on my husband for help. My patience was greatly tested and I had to learn to take one day at a time. It is hard sometimes to rely on other people to do things for you. I'm not good with that at all but I had to learn to accept it. I welcomed the home cooked meal that our friends had brought over for us to enjoy as I was not able to do any cooking. I felt very fortunate and blessed to have friends like that! Some words by Ralph Waldo Emerson that decorate a plaque I received years back from my son-in-law, says: “The decorations of a house are the friends that frequent it” Those words have a special meaning now. How true indeed.
Here I am with my 3 day old little bundle of joy.
So, hopefully my arm is going to heal soon and I will be able to resume my activities in the kitchen.…and with Easter coming soon, I am looking forward to do some cooking of our favorite Easter dishes.... I have to say, I can hardly wait to be able to entertain again .
Until next time, (when hopefully, I will have a recipe for you) enjoy doing the things that bring you joy, (cooking and baking and trying out new recipes :-) keep safe (in the house too) and be happy!
