My word for 2021 is shift. Like everyone I know, I’ve learned a lot, since this time last year. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is that change and uncertainty just are. Since I’m not in control of much more than which yoga pants, Zoom-appropriate top, and slippers I’ll wear each day, I needed to figure out how I could deal with all the change and uncertainty. That’s where shifting comes in.
For me, shifts involve acceptance and adjustment. I know I don’t have much control, but I have unlimited choices. I can shift.
Some of my recent shifts have been pretty significant. Some have been tiny. Some haven’t happened, yet. And I’m sure I’ll make a lot of shifts I can’t even imagine.
Our first oyster roast of the season! This has long been my favorite seasonal food shift to celebrate the cooler coastal days. What are your favorite seasonal food shifts?

Roasted Corn squash has been my favorite shift this week. I am currently experiencing the thrill of a shiny new range and microwave, while doing dishes in the bathtub and chilling a very few essentials in a plug-in cooler. I can do some simple things, but cleaning up is such a pain that I aim to make the simplicity even simpler! Every work day brings more completion to my home renovation. Autumn feels like Christmas presents daily!
Roasted corn squash sounds delish, Penny. And dishwashing in the tub aside, your renovations sound even yummier! Congrats!
