“Nowadays, people are so jeezled up. If they took some chamomile tea and spent more time rocking on the porch in the evening listening to the liquid song of the hermit thrush, they might enjoy life more.” – Tasha Tudor
I came across the quote from Tasha Tudor when researching corgi dogs (dangerous thinking I know)! Corgis appear in most of her books and artwork. The quote was the perfect sentiment at the perfect time for me. It’s been a S-L-O-W week at home, with people still recovering from illnesses, leaving me the only one still awake at 8:30 p.m. I’ve been reading my old issues of Victoria magazine, taking time to enjoy all of the beautiful photos and gracious living articles.
I needed to slow down, too.
I haven’t really found a good balance between home and work since switching jobs, and having my family resting so much made me realize what I high gear I am operating in.
I want to take a bigger step back into my “core business” of family-food-home and one step back from the demands of work. Thoughts, working moms?
According to Tasha, chamomile tea is required!
