#ThursdayThoughts AND #WednesdayWisdom: Scale it down


Wow, I wrote this and never published it yesterday. So you can have it today, when I was going to go postless. Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!

And the actual post:

I had plans for a semi-complicated dessert to make for tomorrow. But then I decided…


I didn’t feel like the work. I didn’t feel like hassling with a cheesecake water bath. So I decided to scale down. I’ll probably make cheesecake bars, all of the taste, less of the work.

Not sure why it’s easier, but it is.

It’s a strange time of the year, and the pressures are constant. But we don’t have to accept the pressure, we don’t have to give into it or live with it.

We can just do something else.

It’s OK to do something else.

Some years I’d enjoy the challenge of something more complicated, but I can say without reservation this is not one of those years.

So I’ll go easier. Maybe I’ll go completely different.

We’ll see, I haven’t yet settled.

But whatever it is, I will give myself permission to scale down. And so should you.

Have a great holiday tomorrow if that’s your thing, and a bearable one if great is out of the question. Not sure yet if there will be a prompt.
