Small Things - November 13, 2021

"Life is not, for most of us, a pageant of splendor, but is made up of many small things, rather like an old fashioned piecework quilt. No two people have the same, but we all have our own, whether it be listening to Beethoven's fifth with a beloved friend, or seeing a neighbor at the back door with a basket of white dahlias. Or after a long, hard day, having the family say, "That was a good supper."

In no particular order, here are six small things that inspired me this week.

1. As you may know, I love just about anything gingerbread flavored, and I'm thinking of giving this gingerbread jam a try. 

2. I don't eat donuts often, but my daughter bought a mini-donut maker and maple bacon donuts are my favorite and I'm hoping to make some this week. 

3. In thinking ahead to Advent, I watched this yesterday, Create Rest During Advent. You might enjoy it, too.

4. I've made little crocheted Christmas trees before, but I came across this pattern this week and they are so cute! 

5. I took part in a Cozy Virtual Summit hosted by Homespun Seasonal Living, and I was introduced to Jenn Campus of Old Ways For Modern Days. I really enjoyed her session, and I've also found some nice resources on her website, as well. 

6. I've been listening to Beth Kempton's Calm Christmas podcast and I'm really enjoying it. I bought the book last year, but to be honest its one of those purchases that I'm happy to own, but I haven't read it yet. But the podcast has really inspired me to pick it up off the shelf.
