Calm on the Farm
Wow!! Who could have predicted the situation we all find ourselves in today?
It’s quiet unbelievably really. I’m not even going to try and explain the behavior of people. They are worried and scared. Scared about the virus and worried about their financial security. I think on some level we are ALL worried, it’s just that we deal with our anxiety differently.
I find it funny that the very things we deem to be “time wasting” or lament that we “don’t have time” to do are often the very things that we need to do to stay calm.
Horses, books, and cooking are my medicine. This week as anxiety levels everywhere hit new heights, and we went into self-imposed lockdown I retreated to my kitchen.
First up on my cooking list was chicken soup. (Old school I know!!) You can find my recipe here. I can get 3 different meals from 1 chicken. (Chicken & Vegetable Soup, Roasted Sweet Potato & Chicken Risotto and Thai Salad with Shredded Chicken) That should just about guarantee life membership to Country Women’s Association!!!
I hope everyone is doing ok.
What are you doing to stay calm?
