I think my word of the summer is Balance–gaining some that is…

It has been a wonderful 8 weeks so far of winding down, working less, enjoying more. It has been a rewarding time of regaining the delicate balance of work, life and everything in between. I don’t know about you, but when I am in the middle of working, running, doing, working, running, tasking, doing…I have a bit of memory loss as to what it means to enjoy and seek out balance.

So here’s to the balance that summer has brought back–may we be able to keep it throughout the re-entry into “regular” life…

* also, I know that my blogging has been very sparse this summer–part of finding the balance and rejuvenating the creative spark…there will be a couple more weeks of this lackadaisical attitude….and then after labour day, it will be Back-to-Work…so stay tuned until then!!! ūüôā

Corn on the Cob with Chili Lime Butter
(beware, once you try this–you may never go back to plain butter again!!)

1/4 lb butter
juice of 1 lime
1-2 tsp chili powder

Combine all with the softened butter and spread on your corn just as you would plain butter. Mmmm!

Tip:¬† Have a couple of cobs of leftover corn no one is hungry enough to eat?¬† Use a sharp knife and cut the corn off the cob, freeze and enjoy sometime mid winter when all you want is to feel the August¬† sunshine on your face…
