Organizing my Recipes-2012
This last week's tasks were a challenge. It was not the tasks but working through some thoughts. I have been reading Ro's stories about reorganizing her life and have reflected on my own path. My layout shows the beginning of my paring down stuff and keeping what is most important. My new recipe books include old papers from my Grandmother's days, new recipes made using scrapping, and copies. It has become an organized system that others can borrow and browse and share. My photos use all the different ambiences in Creative Auto.
My journalling was another challenge, mostly because I tend to think a lot but not talk out loud. Our family has had many challenges this year. Including the death of my father in law and the death of my husband's partner in business. Also my oldest daughter has been ill for the last year, she has spent the last few months in hospital. She is getting well but her
journey has been difficult. Lastly, my son was injured recently, just before school started for the winter. He suffered a broken jaw. He too will be okay. We look at our year and a bit and say "we are together and we are here, working hard and mending our lives."
The journalling on my page is the final paragraph in a letter I wrote today:
My daughter ison a road to recovery, she has gone to see her horse today.
My son has goneback to school, although he is living on milkshakes and breakfast drinks.
My otherdaughter won her hockey game last night and is back at school working on anassignment.
My husband isin Florida, golfing with his friends.
I am sitting atmy computer writing this letter, drinking a coffee and for this moment feelingas though everyone is safe.
