Gee these days all I seem to manage is lots of photos with an update of our doings.
My days have been so full of activity that I am not managing to do regular posts. The weather has been really pleasant, as one would expect for Autumn. We are still getting warmer days, but they are so much nicer. Yesterday it reached 40C (104F) but it didn't feel that hot, even though I did need to put the air conditioner on for a little while. Today was warm too, but now it is looking a lot like rain. My fingers are tightly crossed.
My daughter has arrived home safely on Australian soil. She left London the night of the latest air crash, so it was a stressful time. For me anyway, but that's what mothers do when their chickies are away from the nest. Here is Sarah's "baby" not looking too impressed about being dumped at Nanna's.
I have my new lens, but most times my photos are captured on my phone as I carry it with me. The quality is not as good as my Canon because I only have a cheap phone...
We have rockmelons galore, but they are so yummy and healthy, so I am not complaining!
And still picking capsicums and the occasional tomato...
Some sunflowers at my parents place...we went for a visit.
Here is a piece of machinery (harvester) that my dad has restored. I will take more photos next time, so I can show you how clever he is...
Home grown tomatoes from my mum J
I saved my Valentine's Day flowers, dried them and popped them into a blue vase J
I am loving my new wind chimes.
Making use of an old retro teapot...
Weekending with my friend Wendy.
We went to the farmers markets in a nearby town and enjoyed a tour around our area. I packed my lunch, camera and hat and off we went.
And I came home with this lot.
Saw some of these on our way home,
there they were just grazing in the paddock
Strawberries were on special, so I bought them and soaked thoroughly in water and vinegar then froze on a tray and later put them into bags. These will be used for my daily smoothies. After the recent scare with frozen berries here in Australia, this is how I will be doing mine from now on.
I am getting my health in check and claiming my life back. I have grown tired of feeling lousy, so it is time for change. Less screen time, more exercise and mainly a diet of vegan/plant based food. I started my new life change over a month ago and I am feeling fantastic!
This is what my healthy looks like. Small portion of stir fry veggies and brown rice, sourdough bread with real honey and a glass of clear rainwater.
Zucchini burger and greek salad.
Healthy fruit and nut log.
Healthy and delicious chocolate fruit and nut balls.
I am enjoying eating lots of raw fruits and veggies, and my body is loving it!
Hubby has been busy working on his shed, the end is near now. Here he is fixing a water leak we had last week. The leak was right at the base of the tree.
And with Jennifer Aniston last week in Adelaide lol!
Hope he doesn't slip.
It was a bit tight trying to put tin up on the shed on the weekend, but he did it and survived!
Beautiful sunrises this time of year J
Hope everyone is well.
Blessings to you all,
