With the demands of work life and after-work life, sometimes I don't take time to smell the roses. Days begin and proceed and end with barely a moment for reflection. Over the next few months, I will be sure to stop and be conscious of all that is around me, all that is taking place in a specific moment in time, and reflect on those things that matter most: family, friends, and time spent together.
When I'm taking my final breaths, I'm sure I won't be patting myself on the back for all those extra hours I stayed at the office. I hope, if I can't remember anything, that my grandsons will be reading these blog posts back to me and once again sharing all the precious moments that really mattered. That's what I hope to capture here now and then, not just recipes but moments worth remembering.
Happy July everyone! To greet the month, here's a collage of tonight's baking project: lemon-filled scones. I posted the recipe back in March, so this is nothing new, but I made them tonight, they're pretty, and they deserve one evening's spotlight!
