So I have decided that I am tired of being so busy and stressed, and crying at the drop of a hat, and being pushed around, and not taking the time to actually enjoy the good things in my life. So I am taking action.
Sick of instant coffee, I yesterday purchased a coffee plunger and this morning enjoyed fresh vanilla coffee straight from the pot. Instead of buying greasy takeaway noodles from the city for dinner last week, I took three hours (although it probably would have taken a proficient cook maybe half that time) to prepare and cook a beef casserole in my French cast iron pot, and ate it with some nice crusty bread and red wine. I have started wearing silk nightgowns that feel nice on my skin and having long steamy baths.
Some things are worth doing slowly.
