Over the years, I've become quite fond of the kimchi recipe I developed and always feel slightly saddened when I see my reserves get lower and lower. Kimchi easily takes the leaderboard amongst the several varieties of fermented vegetables I prepare each year.
This morning I woke up at 4:30am wide awake, ready to start my day. Still dark and snowy, but alas that's just the general thing happening on the daily. I have been embracing each winter more so than the last one. With ample amounts of darkness in the day, it feels like a perfect time to be productive, start and work on new projects, learn new trades or crafts, and lots of cuddles.
