How do YOU spell relief?


In the Spring and Summer, I grow vegetables to relieve stress. 


Digging, pulling weeds, and tugging baby carrots and onions from the soil--even the smell of tomato plants--soothes and relaxes me. 



In the autumn, I bake. Kneading dough, mixing pumpkin bread and Christmas cookies, then inhaling the warm, spicy smells that dance across the kitchen make me feel safe and cozy.


As to winter, well. . . never mind. We won't talk about that today. 

How do YOU spell relief when you are stressed?
