Food, music and other simple things

"I will go before thee, and 
make the crooked places straight"
-Isaiah 45:2

Every day try to enjoy and find beauty in simple things. Nice music - no matter if it is a song by a bird sitting somewhere outside or a song on the radio, things you do or manage to complete, food you are given. Every day is a chance for something new to be done or achieved, and it doesn't have to be a big thing at all. However, all little things are big - if you can only notice and appreciate them.

What else could you add to your simple things list?
Do not forget about your family and friends - but it's obvious they are on the list - at the very top of it. :)

'May the sound of music 
and the lilt of laughter,
fill your heart with gladness,
that stays forever after.'

Apple Pie

No matter how good or bad (hopefully not bad at all!) the New Year has been to you, you can always improve it with some good classic apple pie!

Southern Apple Pie - Polecam!

Visitors and Black Eyed Peas

These two guys popped into our kitchen around Christmastime and are going to stay there till it ends.

The ones below are staying with us for good. They have found their spot not exactly in the kitchen though.

It's the time of the year when many people are making resolutions - most of which are going to be forgotten pretty soon. Isn't it better to try to do your best each and every year of the new year? If something doesn't work, do not give up, you can try again another time.

Did you have your black-eyed peas on New Year's Day?
