It is amazing to me how a simple task like baking can bring me a few moments of serenity in an otherwise busy and bustling day.
Flour and butter, eggs and cream. The weighing, the mixing, the rolling out. A pastry case turned into quiche, scones rising in the oven and eaten still warm. Sunshine in the kitchen, warming as it touches.

Emma, this brings a little poetry to the day, doesn’t it? I am moved by, and I find serenity in, the same things: simple daily activities that appeal to the senses and quieten the mind. I also liked your former post on motherhood (although I didn’t react to it for lack of time): becoming a mum has also changed me, or rather, I think it has revealed things that were deep inside me. One of them being able to love so much, sooo beyond my own self, and with such devotion!
Oh, yum. A feast for the eyes and the tum!
There is nothing like a bit of feeding up to lighten the mood!
