this is lemonade

A mindful, grateful, creative life: Life constantly hurls lemons at us. I’m on a mission to make lemonade as best I can, by God’s grace.



I’m patting myself on the back. Almost halfway through the challenge, without flinching. However, it would not be wise to push it. Let’s combine for the weekend again 😉

I have been using online resources for my foodie inspiration for a long time now. One of my favourites being the user archived I proudly say that I was a member from way back when it was still RecipeZaar. Anyway…I found that many of the recipes I loved, were uploaded by American cooks. Hence the need to use cups and spoons to measure things. I improvised with real cups and spoons, but eventually, got myself a set of measuring spoons and cups (I’m still in the market for a truly gorgeous set when I find it).

The spoon below is my favourite out of the set. I just love the roundness of it and the ergonomic curve of the handle sides. I want several just to keep in my glass jars for scooping flour or seeds or whatever.

[This post is one in a series inspired by Fat Mum Slim’s photo a day challenge. I’m exploring ideas and often writing off the back of the idea of the day. It’s a chance to relax a bit in August but also do something slightly different. If you take part let me know – I’d love to see how you get creative with the daily posts!]
