I’m sitting here after having enjoyed a spaghetti dinner that was made from scratch with sourdough garlic bread (not from scratch). It took the sauce about 2 hours to fully simmer together, but it was worth it and I now have enough marinara sauce for the next 2 weeks (ha). I wish had this much time to invest into cooking our meals during the week day, but I am just so tired when I get back from work that sometimes I just want to pass out in my bed as soon as I walk in the door. Now that the weather has gotten rainier, windier and darker, I find it more difficult to get my energy up for those everyday things. I can’t wait to be able to set my own schedule and work my own hours!
Anyway, I’m going to finish up my hot chocolate with marshmallows and head to bed. I’m sitting next to the window listening to the wind blow through the trees and I am so grateful for what I have. I often think about how things can be different which can be a good motivator to change, however, I don’t reflect often enough on how far I’ve come and truly see what I have.
