|Look at it... I made that... with my own two hands... me.|
Without going into the long sob story of what went wrong all during the week, I'll just pick up after my good long cry. Yep, that's what I said, a good long cry. It was necessary and when I decided I was done, I was done... and I set to do what I always seem to do when my world feels chaotic and out of control - I cleaned and baked.
My mama does this and when I was younger, I thought she was bonkers but I get it now. When everything is wildly out of control, it helps - mainly because it puts you back in control of something. So after the aforementioned cry, I scrubbed my kitchen top to bottom... then I wrote out my menu plan for April (yes, the entire month), then I wrote out my grocery list for the week and went to the store for my tiny bit of supplies. Then, after getting Hobbit from school and putting up the groceries, I went on my own adventure.
|It's the little things that bring back peace and comfort.|
It's nice to know that no matter how chaotic, crazy and out of control the world may become, I can always count on being able to make something, anything, and it will calm me right back down. Some days it's crafting, some days it's writing and some days it's getting my hands dirty in the kitchen. Some days, like today, it just takes all three.
