Wimsical Art to Inspire

Do you ever see a drawing, painting, (some peice of art) that you just FELL INTO?

Let’s go fly a kite, Up to the highest hights!

Mary Poppins

Maja Lindberg is a Swedish artist with a whimsical flair. I just want to fall into a beautiful picture. Her amazing illustrations make me want to BE in the picture. I think She’s my new favorite artist, though she’s not “New” per se. She’s been around a long time.

Her pictures make me dream. I feel inspired. I want to be wisked away on a sea swept cliff. Be lost in a field of poppies. Run through a field with the wind in my hair.

Do you have a favorite?

I’m still not there yet!

Too much information is not necessarily a good thing.

Nowadays everyone has something to say and no responsibility for the consequences for their words or actions.

This makes for a world of crazy information we are left to decipher into usable, logical, useful knowledge.

It’s exhausting!!!

I think I will just hide under a blanket and read a novel until the world makes sense again.

Peace out! ✌️

Wisdom from Voltaire

“What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other’s folly – that is the first law of nature.”

Have You tried any meal prep service?

We recently started a trial with HelloFresh. Our first order of ingredients for 3 meals arrived December 13, 2021.

12/13/2021: southwest beef cavatappi*, one pan moo shu pork bowls, chicken ramen in shout-style broth*,
12/20/2021: spiced chicken in apricot sauce*, sheet pan walnut-crusted salmon*, middle eastern chickpea bowls

12/27/2021: sheet pan herby balsamic pork tenderloin*, Tuscan chicken with balsamic tomato sauce, middle eastern chickpea bowls*(week2),

Week 1 favorites: Ramen💯. Week 3 favorites: chicken and the chickpea bowl. Week 3: pork tenderloin (haven’t made Tuscan Chicken yet).

Thoughts on trying the service:

  • Convenience 100%
  • Ease of use 80%
  • Trying new dishes 100%
  • Taste 60%

Having at least a few meals delivered with all the ingredients, instructions, and perfect portions is definitely a MAJOR PLUS. The opportunity to try new dishes: also a big plus. Ease of recipes, prep, and cleanup is decent, not perfect.

Now the biggie: TASTE. I think this is highly personal. Our family: not a fan of sauces of any kind, unless it’s on pasta. Also, we LOVE spicy food. These meals didn’t often hit the spice level we were hoping for.

Still, overall it’s been fun. We still have 2 weeks more to go. I’m still not convinced the value meets the benefit, but I’m keeping an open mind.

Have you ever tried a service like this?

Which one?
