Rambling from the Roost: Volume 18

Hey friend, it’s time for another round of Rambling from the Roost and random thoughts! The weeks are flying by and I’m finding I could use another 24 hours in my day.

During life’s hustle and bustle, there are moments when slowing down becomes an unexpected yet invaluable gift. Have you ever noticed this as well?

Recently, our household experienced this pause when the sweet one was a bit under the weather which brought our home into a much slower place. While tending to the care that enveloped us, it ushered in a serene calm that prompted both of us to embrace this slower pace.

Amidst the quieter moments, something beautiful unfolded. The enforced slowdown became an opportunity for creativity and exploration in the kitchen. A few new recipes danced on my stovetop, filling the air with comforting aromas and providing solace to both our hearts and souls.

The extra time afforded by the slowed rhythm allowed me to engage in a therapeutic bout of cleaning and organizing, transforming our living space into a haven of further organization.

As I navigated through these unhurried days, there was a silver lining that brightened the horizon—the prospect of a home that is not just well-tended but radiates warmth and joy.

This unexpected interlude serves as a gentle reminder that amidst the chaos of the impending Christmas rush, there is beauty in simplicity and rejuvenation in taking things one step at a time. Even if you, or someone in your family, is under the weather and your list seems unattainable.

If you find you are also in this place, I’m here to encourage you that these unhurried moments can linger, slow it down, and bring forth a sense of peace and fulfillment, even as the holiday season approaches with its joyful whirlwind.

What I Was Up To This Past Week

Once I cleaned out my pantry, the kitchen drawers, the linen closet, and more I took a trip down memory lane.

Do You Have Extra Ornaments Laying Around?

I took a bin of green ornaments I wasn’t using and created this ornament wreath! It took only about thirty minutes from start to finish to create this last week.
