From My Garden
I need to remember that enthusiasm is not
an accessory to my life. It is an absolute necessity.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
I have 100% of the rest of my life left to live.
Yesterday, I did some cooking in the morning. I made Hungarian Goulash. I’ve never made this dish before. It was quite simple, very colourful, with very few ingredients, and enough , with mash and peas, to serve 4 people. I couldn’t find a recipe in my multitude of cookbooks, so I resorted to asking the internet for help. I was delighted with the result. My next culinary effort is going to be goulash soup. We had some on board ship in Hungary and I quite liked what we ate.
Later i was able to fit time in, in my garden. I had bought punnets of flower plants and planted up my hanging baskets. Soon I will have baskets of flowering delight. Evev now with only the greenery the baskets look so much better than empty bare baskets.
Today I found it hard to be enthusiastic about a visit to the accountant and all the paperwork and information required. However, at the end of my visit, when the accountant told me my tax return results, I became most enthusiastic indeed. In my head I was spending it on the new roof for my deck which we have yearned for, for a couple of years now. In summer it gets so hot out there. A roof is badly needed. The visit was very productive.
So once again I have contributed to positive, productive and peaceful and added enthusiasm. Well done!
So on to my next project for today, which is Apple Slice – with only 4 ingredients. I have made this dessert before, and it is even easier than Hungarian goulash. I will have that ready in no time…. and it is very yummy indeed!
And then into the garden…….
I wish you a positive, productive, peaceful, and enthusiastic day and hope you too can share it with others. C
If I am to particpate in the game of life I will need to appreciate every precious moment.
