Setting the Pace

It's that time of year isn't it? Where if you let it, the days fly by and the weeks shoot around...and you just may get caught up in all the frantic-ness that is the Festive Season...
Despite my commitment to go handmade this year and despite my silliness at still not having made a decent dent in my projects I am choosing to slow down instead....inspired by my love of the Slow Food Movement.

Last weekend saw Mia and I both clad in our pyjamas....as it was after all only 7am.....fossicking through the garden for goodies. What an early morning treat to have dew on your feet and fresh cool air on your face as you exclaim over each delicious find.

A happy little weekend harvest for our Thank You dinner. You can't get much slower than that can you?

We continued our pleasure and pace through the week with lunches as well......again straight from the garden......

via little chopping hands......

to our bellies.....

and back to the garden again......

This weekend I'm going to practice some slow sewing and slow gift making.......and just maybe, well most likely, more slow pyjama harvesting and eating.....will you slow down with me?
Happy weekend everyone.

Time is whirring faster and faster around here as we enter the season of holidays. Thanks for the reminder to pause, take a deep breath and quiet my anxious mind.

Sounds like you have a beautiful weekend ahead. I, too, have hopes for holiday gift making, but sadly no pajama harvesting and eating of such garden treasures.

Your garden and veggies look really great! Enjoy!
