Good morning, luvs! How was your weekend?
I stayed cozy, warm and dry at home whilst rain poured, drinking mug after mug of strong cream tea as I read and napped. It was the perfect time to think through things.
After writing about When One Door Closes last week, I went through a lot of emotions: sadness, fear, anxiety. But after the initial storm passed and I took a few deep breaths, hope crept back in and I realized that through the disappointment I had been given an unexpected gift: choice.
I was no longer tied to what was behind that closed door, and it got my creative mind whirling. My bed was covered with books and papers and a notepad as I read and dreamed and wrote and started narrowing things down to what really makes my heart happy. It ended up being so interesting and very eye-opening as I faced various fears and insecurities head-on. I feel so much stronger and braver now.
Forgive me for being so cryptic about this situation in my life. Hopefully one day soon I will have the answer I need and then I can tell you all about it so we can celebrate together. In the meantime, thank you, thank you, thank you for the love and support you’ve lavished on me. Your kindness has given me much courage and I wish I could hug you tight.
For this very rainy and thought-filled weekend I decided comfort food was in order. I’ve been reading so many old-fashioned stories lately and they put me in the mood for old-fashioned food like Creamed Eggs on Toast. Mmm, how I love the peppery white sauce studded with hard-boiled eggs. It goes so well with a crisp, well-buttered piece of toast and a steaming mug of Earl Grey tea.
What is your favorite old-fashioned breakfast?
