Getting Motivated

Friday, July 13, 2018

TGIF. Its been a thoroughly unmotivated week here, maybe it’s down to the distractingly gorgeous weather, or just part of the ebb and flow of self-employment. It’s something I’ve really had to learn to grow into though, control freak that I am, understanding how best to listen to myself when I’m not feeling so inspired.

My advice? Don’t force it, focus your attention on something else for a while and it’ll come back when you’re in the right space. That’s not to say I haven’t been productive in the garden though - did you see the progress on our black fences on my Stories? Also, prep begins on the bedroom this weekend now we’ve settled on the paint.

Elderflower Syrup

Years ago I had the pleasure of tasting homemade elderflower cordial in Denmark at the home of the amazing Marina Pagh. The cordial was incredibly refreshing, floral and citrusy, it was addictive and I’m afraid I nearly drank their whole bottle on my own!

Over half a decade later, after trying countless disappointing store-bought elderflower syrups and searching far and wide for the flowers, I finally came across a huge tree dense with blossoms only a few doors down from the apartment. Needless to say, I’m over the moon!

A few days from now I’ll have my own syrup of summery bliss, packed into bottles and ready to provide that heady taste of summer year-long...I can barely wait!

This Phase Of Motherhood

This phase of motherhood:
Up at 7am, my coffee is actually hot, Baron helps do chores,
Farmer's Market with minimal to moderate whining,
fresh bakery lunch because eating healthier,
and home again for Roman's nap because
some days he's still just the little guy.
Wouldn't trade any of it for the whole entire world.

Favorite View

That first sight of Daddy walking through the door
after a long day is one of my favorite views.
And then he does bedtime with all my missing
patience and grace and I’m all, *heart eyes*.
Teamwork makes the dream work, baby.
