To have a good day is more than I expect, sometimes.
But I did enjoy the one that started with my child asking,
while looking at the calendar, “Is today an odd or evil day?”
(you can’t be sure these days)
Humbled and grateful to have my work featured in the Summer 2017 edition of “Bella Grace Magazine”. A sweet start to the season.

“Wasn’t there a spell for making yourself happy? Somebody must have invented one. How could he have missed it? Why didn’t they teach it? Was it in the library, a flying book fluttering just out of reach, beating its wings against some high window?”
~ Lev Grossman
I came across some old cookbooks in the library the other day.
And I found some happiness in the process of bread making.
“Bread baking is one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world’s sweetest smells… there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel, that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.”
~ M.F.K. Fisher
I believe that to be true.
Just the kneading alone is a wonderful stress reliever.
A spell of happiness
Have you fallen under any spells of happiness lately?
