Perfect day

What can I call a daily perfection?
Hmmmm... this delicious food, my lunch that I prepared myself in a calm , cold and cloudy day which made me feel inspired and I had to cook!

This food is called in Portuguese: Polenta com Carne Moída which I printed from this website to put in my recipe personal cookbook because I enjoyed making it and its result was perfect, sooo good!

And after all the Polenta consumption lunch , I went to sewing my quilt which I called Maricota´s quilt because most of the scraps I used here came as a donation from my choir friends ( the Maricotas!) and they´ve turned to a very special quilt, all handmade by me with a hundred percent cotton fabric .

It may sound silly but I get strenght from this little ritual and these moments leaves me aware of this very present time, so full of good energy, handwork, peace , stillness and so much goodness!

And talking about goodness, these pretty buttons and fabrics , they came from a very special friend , very talented artist and ceramist that went to visit the US these past few days and she reminded of bringing these for me!Thank you Celia, from the bottom of my heart! And plus, I heart Mondays when I go to your cozy atelier to learn Patchwork!!!

Hmmm!! I love polenta. But a little too difficult to get here. So I make it with Mashed Potato instead!! Not quite the same, but it works fine!!
Your lunch looks beautiful!! And I am going to sleep. And I shall dream with this dish of yours.
