Four times a charm

As I mentioned pre-weekend I’ve been tired and unmotivated lately, so I thought a little slow food would cure me. Not quite LOL.

Perhaps if I’d stuck to something at least relatively familiar, or even refrained from trying a new machine, it would have. But I’m a difficult girl lol and I like challenges.

But this is me. I know myself and letting it go would have bothered me internally forever. So I tried one more time and…

So… I’m still tired and lethargic but at least I can say I had ONE victory this weekend 🙂
