Friend Of The Week – Karin’s Cottage
I’ll confess: after sheltering in place and social distancing for what feels like close to a month now, I can’t help but feel a little stir crazy at times. Don’t get me wrong – I’m glad that I live in a state that is taking the coronavirus crisis so seriously, Still, I long for the “good old days” where life was normal and we all went about our day to day lives, blissfully unaware of the potential dangers that lurked all around us!
That’s why it’s such a joy to hang out at Karin’s Kottage this week. Even though Karin and her husband are empty nesters, they learned how to adapt to their “new normal” and create even more fullness in their lives than they had previously. This seems to me like a lesson in joy that we could all use a little of right now!
One of the things that struck me as I explored Karin’s blog is how important the people in her life to her are, and how – even when they aren’t around – she was always planning for the times when they would be. That’s one of the things that I’m reflecting on in the midst of social distancing: how can I find new ways to reach out to family, friends, and the people God is bringing into my lives in ways that will let them know that they are loved, remembered and seen, even when we can’t be there in person to convey that message?
Perhaps, when we’re preparing our meals, we can make a little extra to share with a friend or neighbor who lives alone or who (for various reasons) shouldn’t leave their home, even to shop. Karin’s Quick And Easy Thai Turkey Yams is a scrumptious meal that brighten anyone’s day without breaking the bank!
Want to go the extra mile? Why not bake some Heart Shaped Valentine Cookies for your family and include some extras in your friend’s or neighbor’s care package as well!
Craft projects are not only a fun family project to do together, but they also make gifts and care packages a little more special as well! Karin’s Make Your Own Old Fashioned Paper Snack Bags allow you to add a personal touch to any goodies and treats you make for the special people in your life!
Finally, we all could use some added cheer around our homes! When I was growing up, I loved making paper flowers out of tissue paper. See how Karin used this fun DIY idea (and more) to create a festive Easter Tablescape And Centerpiece for her home!
Making new friends is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Be sure to visit Karin this week, explore the creative ideas she’s shared on her blog, and congratulate her for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy?
