Time is a created thing.

“Time is a created thing.  To say ‘I don’t have time’ is to say ‘I don’t want to.'”  — Lao Tzu

I used to say this about cooking that I don’t have time to cook.  For some odd reason I decided over the last couple of years that I don’t like cooking which really is not true.  Since moving into the condo, I have been working on re-teaching myself how to cook.  I enjoy cooking again.  I just think having the house in Plymouth became so overwhelming that I stopped cooking to ‘save’ time.

Now, I make time to make lunches for the week.  This has been a conscious decision for me to get food organized to be healthier.

When you say ‘I don’t have time’ meaning ‘I don’t want to’ what are you trying to avoid?

Table Centerpieces

A designer, Aubrey Smiga, said the following about table centerpieces:

“Do away with the expected.  A collection of interesting objects – an old pewter pitcher, a big bowl with mounded moss and a small crystal sphere, and antique mercury bottle – is so much more interesting as a dining table centerpiece than candlesticks.  The more unusual the better!”

My family and I created unusual table centerpieces for a 50th celebration which was a HUGE success.
