I discovered the Ten on Ten projectona bit of sunshine blogby Rebekah Gough thanks to Food Loves Writing. What a beautiful idea, to find “life and beauty in the ordinary things of our day”, with 10 images representing 10 hours of the day, on the 10th of each month. I decided to give it a try today. And today wasn’t the most pleasant or exciting of days, I had a big work deadline and was cooped up at my desk for a big part of it. Yet, remembering every hour or so to look around at the beauty around me was a wonderful exercise in gratitude.
Here it goes…
7 am. What I find in our bed as I return from my workout.
8 am. Breakfast yogurt.
9-10 am. In my office, the week’s menu, gazing outside, then work.
11 am. Working. A visitor.
12pm. Lunch: my mother’s chicken liver salad.
Big plate, small plate. Hearts of palm, radishes, salami too.
1-3pm – Quiet in Pablo’s room. Naptime. Still working.
4pm. Pablo looks over the mail before going swimming.
5 pm. Finally done with work. Making a cold soup for dinner.
Pitting cherries we picked this weekend with my nifty antique cherry-pitter.
6 pm – Pablo helps make the lamb meatballs we’re having for dinner.
7pm. I loveeating dinner outside. Escaping the walls.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a new recipe… 🙂
