good morning! i've had a bit of a rough week, emotionally and i'm trying to surround myself with more things that make me happy. yesterday i had a sweet lunch with a new friend and i got a sneak peek inside a new chocolate factory. it's not really a factory yet, more of a chocolate making area. i've really been enjoying all the new uploads of my flickr friends. it is exciting to see new photos pop up and i really enjoy the ongoing conversations that will come up there.
i baked a leek bread pudding because baking always brings me some calm. it came out delicious, but very very rich (and i even used reduced fat milk!). i harvested some beautiful and tender kale in our garden, then steamed it for dinner. tonight i plan on using up the rest of our multi-colored potatoes. i also plan on a long walk.
i have to work all weekend, so taking little bouts of pleasure where i can is important right now. staying calm and happy can be hard sometimes.
