Our Daily Bread (266/365)

“The best things in life are nearest:  Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you.  Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.”

Robert Louis Stevenson (Scottish novelist, poet, essayist and travel writer, 1850–1894)

TIME:  9:35 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  Homemade bread

At 8:15am, I started a beef stew in the Crockpot.  I then left for work; worked until noon; drove back home; started bread in the bread maker; let the dog out; put the back in the kennel; went to the grade school to work the book fair from 12:45 to 3pm; brought the two youngest kids home from school at 3; left for the junior high school to count money from a fundraiser at 3:45pm; attended a PTA meeting at the junior high after counting money; returned home at 5pm; ate the beef stew and bread for dinner; cleaned up the kitchen; walked back up to the grade school with the three kiddos for a grade school PTA meeting from 6:30 to 8:15pm; walked back home and helped children with homework.  I’m thinking I could have done a little bit more today.

Very much appreciate the Stevenson quote. I would never have guessed who had said it.

Sounds as if your life has rhythm.
