Are You Growing?

Time to time I need to think where I am and where I want to go and what should I do next. These thoughts have been with me this spring. A lot. I know a lot of things I should do here at our home, haha... but now I'm talking about bigger things.

I love to be a person who just decide and make things happen with good attitude and courage. But I'm not. I need to think things quite a long time depending on how big THE thing is. About ten years ago I decided that I want to be a good photographer. So I've been going forward with that thought in my mind. Yes, I'm a professional photographer now and have quite nice portfolio.

But what now?
What I want to take for my next goal? I admit I'm not ready to say it aloud.

What kind of questions you have in your mind?

Maybe growing is like our lunch pesto today. I didn't have basil, I didn't have macadamia nuts or pine nuts that I normally use in making pesto so here's what I did.

I used nettle, dried sage, a bit dried basil too instead of fresh basil. I used almonds and sunflower and sesame seeds instead of macadamia nuts. It looks like pesto and it tasted good. On top of it I had small basil leaves. Fresh basil is already growing next to our living room window. 

There are so many ways to make things happen.



  1. I can relate you so much in what you said here.. I think also long before making some changes, be it in my home or in my life. Sometimes I feel, that I shouldn't think so much and do more instead of thinking, because many things can be changed along the way. For example the paint on the wall, which I have currently on my mind. Of course, there are things that can't be changed...

    Have a nice weekend, Kreetta!

  2. Hi Anu!Yes, that paint can be painted again - with different color if the first one isn't just the right one...but that you don't think when you are thinking the right color ;) I know what you are talking about. But you just have to start from somewhere!! Have a lovely weekend too Anu!
