Little Things

Today has been an extraordinarily tiring day.  Full of energy this morning, lots of good work done at the bakery as we tie up the loose ends of another wild five month farmer's market season and plan, plan, plan for the holidays to come.  My to-do lists are endless and on-going...and that doesn't even include the barrage of ideas I keep fielding for the blog.  What was a full tank this morning has resorted to fumes come nightfall.

Sound familiar?

You, me, my husband, most of the people you're fighting rush hour traffic with...same boat.  And then there's the question...that question...

...what's for dinner tonight?!

Truth be told, we had dinner all planned -- grilled steak and our favorite buttermilk caramelized onion mashed potatoes.  But when it comes down to it, there's no energy to put it all together.  All the greatest ideas are nothing without the energy to bring it to fruition.

It's a gift, a luxury even, to consider that we have a choice not to cook.  Before I started this new angle on the blog, when I was smack in the middle of my food funk, I couldn't help but feel a little bit guilty for choosing not to cook.  What laziness is that?

But now?  I just feel grateful.

Grateful for the choice.  Grateful for the food options we have surrounding us where we live.  Grateful for the financial situation we have that allows us to splurge.  Grateful to take the night off, so to speak, and just relax.

For the little things, that are big things, when we are in a space to be glad of them.//

What's For Dinner Tonight?
Chinese.  What are you having?? :)
