#80 Faith.

Faith. That word means different things to different people. Yes I know, I’m stating the obvious. But, I started thinking about faith today. The kids and I had been talking about tolerance and respect. Big things. For many people faith is tied into religious beliefs. For me it’s something else. I have faith. I trust…

#79 Pasta.

When you haven’t planned your meals for the week because you were busy doing other things, pasta is a saviour. Pasta can be turned into a meal with ease and with whatever you have on hand. I love it. Shapes, fettucine any kind of pasta will do. So this morning while I was doing other…

#78 Connected

I just had a passing thought. Well I guess it was a stream of thoughts really. The other day I went on twitter and noticed in my feed there were notifications from the main roads department and News channels about an incident on the train lines and services being interrupted and cancelled due to the…

#77 Deadline

I am proud to say that I met my self imposed deadline for another writing project. Usually I feel really elated. This time, I feel more deflated. Weird. It’s an annual writing project that I do every year and is usally about 35 pages long. It sounds more than it is though because those pages…

#76 Repairs

Today my body ached and I had a massive headache which was subdued with paracetamol. I think my bag must have been heavy on my shoulder all day yesterday, out and about protesting, as you do 😉 I’ve been going to get a backpack for ages but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Anyway…

#75 Action

Today was great! For our relatively small city there was a good turnout. There was an energy buzzing through the crowd. It felt so powerful to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. We stood together in solidarity to save the planet and therefore the human race. Yes, it sounds pretty drastic, becasue it…

#74 Social Change

How is it Thursday already? I have let go of the need to keep up because its a fruitless exercise 😉 Time ticks away whether I’m taking notice or not, so I just keep living every moment pretty much engaged in whatever I’m doing. This includes daydreaming. Tommorow some of the kids and I are…

#73 Blank

I’m not sure why but I am having a huge brain blank. So I have nothing to write about. I have the hiccups thats about the extent of my thoughts this very second 😉 Also I learnt about hydraulics and Pascals law. I have had quite a headache most of the day so I’m not…

#72 Growth

Funny how things grow when you’re not really paying attention. We are so busy living our lives that when we take a meaningful pause we realise that things have changed. Growth is good.

#71 Dough balls

Weird title right? I’m here early because I am going to be making dough balls with one of my sons very soon 🙂 Dinner is already cooked, tonight it’s Thai Green Chicken curry and rice! Yum. It’s going to be extra good because I had fresh kaffir lime leaves, a fresh lime and even some…
