A quiet Monday

I had a very quiet day today.
A dear friend reminded me of encouragement I had gotten
when I blogged about feeling that I would not be 
I see that I have written about it again, here.
I am learning that I can slow down,
that I can take days I need to rest so that I am better
able to handle my week.
I am seeing how much gentleness and space each person needs;
I know that I am not perfect, that I don't always do the best 
for others or even myself.
But I hope I am learning.
Today I baked a chicken, 
am baking potatoes,
I am thinking always of my writing,
of my long list of things to do.
But I am trying not to let the long list produce a 
need to do things when the best thing to do is rest.
I got a new cookbook today, from a dear friend;
I hope to make the flour-less cake sometime soon, if God so grants. 
But I knew, today, that it was OK to rest, be quiet...

Good days. Your chicken looked delicious and perfect!
I love that creamer and sugar bowl.

yummy post and that book looks delightful! I love my slowed down days as much as my busy days too much of either is an imbalance!
