And a donut muffin! I didn't have buttermilk on hand, and I left off the melted butter and cinnamon sugar.
Yesterday I was seeking balance and then I remembered to take my own advice. When stress would take over in my corporate life, I would often council to just wait a day. Often things would be experienced differently with nothing much changing except one's perspective.
I woke up craving muffins to go with the beautiful strawberry jam which was part of this weeks Farm Box. Rather then rushing into my day I took some time to put these together. The smell of nutmeg is heavenly and they were an excellent backdrop for the jam. I took my breakfast outside, something I forget to do often enough, and enjoyed the yard we've been busy developing.
The succulents are in bloom, and the sun danced patterns on the yard. The muffin was perfect and now I'm ready to start the day!
Bead and Button proposals are on the agenda. I arrive home from Seattle the day of the deadline and I think that could be a bad day to count on uploading information to the Kalmbach servers, so I'll do my best to finish up today. Tomorrow will be packing which I always think should be easier given the amount of times I do it, but sadly it is still a chore. I dreamt I had forgotten every single sample (sound familiar to anyone?) so I'll be sure to pack the jewelry first.
