December 6 – Make.
What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

Yesterday I made banana oatmeal muffins. With, you know, mashed banana and rolled oats and vanilla yoghurt because I didn’t have the plain stuff.
It feels good to cook. I forget sometimes. But it feels good to use my hands. There’s magic in the transformation of ingredients into food into meals.
A more permanent thing I’m making is a baby scrapbook collage thing. Inspired by Leonie’s scrap-journal I’m filling up a binder with photos and cards and notes and reminders for the baby. It isn’t beautiful on the outside yet, but it’s already full of magical stuff.
