It took some perseverance.  Became  more of a pelgrimage and an emotional one at that. Underestimated the time and work it took. Not finishing it – no matter what – was never an option.

There are periods in life when it seems you allow life taken out of your hands.

You way of thinking, your spiritual approach to things the overall grip on it eludes you.  FaceBook can be one of the negative infulences in this respect. Its often sad and  ridiculous posts. The disapointing reactions.

Neigbours maybe. Friendships that were not what you assumed them to be..

Once you are aware of this happening the moment must come that you tell yourself : “Wait, this has to change. I have to do something about it. Right Now”.

So, back to Fathers armchair, Sister Nen’s small pillows, Mother’s  small bedside chess and Grandmother Mona’s Bookcase…

…….back to my meditation corner.. it has been too long..

The Crockpot or Slowcooker

….if only I had known….

… but I am blessed with friends who give me many good ideas.  And the best thing to do then is … passing them on !

Just the same, if I only had known that this slowcooker existed when I was still working, rushing out of my small apartment at 6 AM to catch my train to Amsterdam … and dropping in at 7 PM, often too tired to even get around frying an egg for dinner…


Throw all kinds of nice things in your slowcooker on Saturdaymorning for – orcourse – the whole weekend.

Put it on SLOW ( = 6 hours in the morning) or FAST (= 3 hours in the afternoon).    And anytime dinnertime –  be it  early or late in the evening-  it is happily simmering along.  When hungry friends drop in.. there is always enough.  The KEEP WARM option proved very useful too .

Thank you Kimberly !

And they come in all sizes.  For big families, for bachelors.. fantastic.

As for recepies.. surf on the Internet. You will be surprised !
