vremea de tihna

Vremea de tihna

Cuvintele neaose imi vin in minte zilele astea pentru ca e vremea de tihna. Stau mereu pe fuga si viata mea e mereu contra cronometru. Dar aceasta luna care tocmai a trecut m-a invatat sa imi educ chiar si timpul acesta necontorizat si sa invat in fiecare zi cate ceva. Uneori inseamna doar sa imi refolosesc cunostinte dobandite. Alteori chiar sunt lucruri noi pe care le invat. Si impreuna cu fiul meu invatam impreuna sa facem lucruri, sa comunicam si sa ne dezvoltam. Copilul are nevoie de rutina. Si aceasta rutina merita din cand in cand sa fie schimbata pentru ca si el se plictiseste uneori. Incepuse sa mearga la cresa si invatase sa isi arate personalitatea: ii place sa stea in preajma adultilor si ii place sa ajute. Daca un copil plangea se ducea la el sa il ia in brate. Mi s-a parut ca nu a vazut asta nicaieri dar a simtit nevoia sa faca asta. Zilele trecute o oala s-a dezechilibrat din scurgator producand un zgomot puternic. A venit imediat sa vada daca sunt bine. A fost extrem de vizibila pe fata lui ingrijorarea. Si acum imi dau seama ca in tihna copilul invata multe lucruri noi pe care posibil sa le inteleaga abia mai tarziu. Dar e cea mai buna potrivire pentru educatia lui. Si vorbind de rutina, in zilele de munca normale nu apuc sa imi beau nici macar un pahar cu apa acasa inainte sa plec la munca. Dar de cand stau acasa mi-am impus sa am cana cu ceai, cacao cu lapte sau un simplu pahar cu apa pe care sa le beau inainte de a iesi cu copilul in plimbarea de dimineata. Uneori nu apucam sa iesim in plimbarea de dimineata, dar ne bucuram de gatitul impreuna. Aceasta este vacanta mea mult visata: copilul acasa si sanatos, eu si sotul stam impreuna cu el, uneori ne enervam, ne sufocam, dar sincer nu stiu de ce sa ne plangem? Nu vin bani pentru unii dintre noi si eu ma numar printre ei, dar imi place foarte mult acest concediu. Nu stiu cand se va termina, ma grabesc sa pun ordine si sa eliberez casa de nimicuri, fac ordine si curatenie si fac de mancare cum nu am apucat niciodata. Acum am inteles de ce postul, de ce sarbatorile, de ce tihna. Va dati seama ca daca ne ia cel putin o saptamana sa facem maiaua pentru o gospodarie mica, cam cat le lua bunicilor noastre care aveau mai multi copii si trebuiau sa se ocupe de ei, de gradina, de ograda, de mancare si sa dospeasca si maiaua. Nu vreau sa imi imaginez cum era cand erau si gravide. Femeile alea nu stateau deloc. Si uite ca au trait pana la adanci batraneti. Si cred ca tot ce vedem rau astazi in societatea noastra provine din acest stres continuu. Aveti idee cat de bine am slabit si cum m-am tonifiat de cand stau acasa? Ei bine, da, bunicile noastre nu mergeau la sala, nu faceau munca de birou, dar aveau mereu piciorul pregatit sa se ridice si sa faca ceva prin gradina, prin casa sau prin ograda. Si da, stiau sa foloseasca pana la ultimul rest de resursa: stiau sa salveze o maioneza taiata, sa foloseasca cojile de la mar pentru un compot rapid, sa foloseasca mamaliga veche pentru o portie apreciata de copiii de astazi ca fiind cereale cu lapte, pe atunci era mamaliga cu lapte. Noi aruncam mult. Aruncam si nu ne dam seama cat irosim din ce am primit cu binecuvantare. Si irosim si timpul uneori aiurea pe incarcaturi inutile de energie negativa. Asa ca hai sa ne asezam si sa ne bucuram de aceasta vreme de tihna si de soarele asta, de lumina asta calda a lui Aprilie, de timpul pe care il avem pentru dospit, de plamadeala pe care o putem face in liniste impreuna cu familia. Eu am testat o gramada de retete si de lucruri de facut. Zau ca nu stiam sa gatesc si acum simt ca pot sa fac si asta. Poate o data o sa uit sa pun nuca la strudelul cu mere, chiar am patit asta, si ce daca? Adica a iesit gresit? Nu, pentru ca reteta avea ceva unic: suflet. Si a iesit atat de bun incat toti membrii familiei au apreciat rezultatul. Si asta va sfatuiesc sa faceti si voi zilele astea: sa faceti lucruri in tihna si sa simtiti in liniste aceasta perioada ca fiind vacanta bine-meritata.

Time To Take Time

Local words come to mind these days as I have time to take time. I am always on the run and my life is always against time. But this past month has taught me to educate even this unmetered time to learn something everyday. Sometimes I am just reusing things I have learned a long time ago. Other times there are actually new things I am learning. And together with my son we make stuff, we communicate and we develop. The kid needs repetitive actions. And this routine it’s worth being changed with addons as otherwise he would be bored. He had just started daycare and he would start displaying a personality: he likes being around adults and he likes to help. If a kid would cry he would go and try to comfort him. I don’t believe he saw this anywhere but it was something he felt like doing. The other days a pot lost balance in the drying dish support making a loud noise. He came immediately over to see if I was ok. It was very visible on his face the concern for my wellbeing. And now I realise that taking time my kid is learning a lot of new things which he may fully understand later. But this is the best match for his education. And speaking of routine, normal working days I barely have time to drink a glass of water at home before leaving for the office. But since staying home I insist on having a cup of tea, cocoa milk or a simple glass of water to drink before exiting the house for the morning stroll. Sometimes we don’t get to go out in the morning, but we are happy to stay in and cook together. This is the vacation we have longed for: staying with my kid home and him being healthy. My husband and I take care of him, sometimes we loose our calm, we suffocate, but honestly we have nothing to complain. Some of us don’t receive payment and I am one of those, but I truly enjoy this vacation. I don’t know when it will be over, I rush to put order and free the house of useless stuff and I cleanup and cook like I never took the time. Now I understand why fasting, why the holidays, why the time. Can you realise if it takes us one week to make the sour dough for a small household, how much it would have taken our grandmothers who had more kids and they needed to take care of them, the household, the garden and animals, the food and to grow the sour dough. I can’t even imagine what it was like if they were also pregnant. Those days women had no time to waste. And they lived happily till old age. And I think most of the evil nowadays in our society is coming from this continuous stress. Do you have any idea how I lost weight and toned myself since staying home? Well, yes ,out grandmothers were not going to the gym, were not doing office work, but their feet were always ready to jump up and pick up something from the garden, from the house or from the farm. And yes, they knew how to use every bit of resource: they knew how to save mayo, to use the apple leftovers for a quick apple juice, to use old polenta for a quick milk and cereal evening or morning drink. We throw out a lot of stuff. We throw out and we don’t realise how much we waste from the blessings received. And we waste time on unimportant loads of bad energy. So let’s sit and enjoy the time we have to spend in the sun, the warm April light, the time we have for leavened, doughing we can take time to make with our family. Personally I tried out a lot of recipes and stuff to make. I swear I didn’t know how to cook and now I feel I can make this too. Maybe once I forget to add the nut to the apple pie, it happened to me, but so what? I mean does that mean it’s wrong? No, because the recipe had something unique: heart. And it came out something so good that all family members appreciated. And this is an advice for these days: to take time to make things and to take this period as a well-deserved vacation.
