#318 Plans

I didn’t get to play with the Zojirushi mini bread machine today because we got busy with other things 🙂 That’s ok! I did find, download and print out the instruction manual/recipe book though. I’ve read through it thoroughly and am totally prepared 😉 As for the baby crock pot, the oatmeal/porridge was deliciously soft…

#317 New to me :)

I’m so excited! Mr Notebook kindly went and picked up my online thrifted finds for me today 🙂 As I write, the dinky little 1970’s made Crock Pot is filled with the makings of oatmeal. It will be ready for breakfast 🙂 It’s so awesome and a sweet 1.8 litre size. It came with its…

#316 New Vintage

Another full day and I’m not complaining! I’m feeling good and saw my Cardiologist and don’t have to see him for twelve months now. This is awesome because everything is going well and a little bit sad because we always have the most brilliant conversations. I’m so grateful for my health, I can’t even begin…

#315 The bed post

I’m in my bed and I’m writing this post 😉 It’s been a very full day and I am really looking forward to sleep. That delicious feeling when you just close your eyes and let the thoughts flow. I am grateful for every day and glorious sleep . xo

#314 Taking my own sweet time.

Sweet Sunday evening. Made an easy dinner. I feel calm. I’m totally at peace in myself. I feel at peace in the world. Maybe the meditation is working? If I could translate my laughter into words, this is where you’d here me laughing at myself. I am serious though 🙂 Maybe it is. xo

#313 Going Out

Tonight we are heading to a games night at a friend’s place. I’m not feeling super sociable exactly, however the kids are looking forward to it, as is the Mr. I’m pretty sure I’ll have a good time once I’m there 🙂 Everybody brings a plate of food to share and I always meet new…

#312 Meet the old days.

I’m. not sure if I’ve already mentioned this or not, but I’ve been watching a show on YouTube called the Supersizers. It’s attached to my interest in food history ad thas how I discovered it. It’s an english program and the hosts are funny and engaging. I started off with The Supersizers go War Time…

#311 Thrifting & more Bread

Today I got baking again. This time I made a banana and nut loaf. It’s a sweet loaf and I can’t wait to try it, but I’m still full from my dinner so I’ve decided I’ll toast a slice for breakfast and have it with my coffee. Stay posted for pics 😉 I made a…

#310 Breaking Bread

Today I decided to play with my bread machine, the one I scored at the thrift shop. I was waiting for my second eldest to finish getting ready before we headed out to complete her application for a tax file number. She is so excited because she got her first job! I’m excited for her…

#309 Making things up.

This evening I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner. I hadn’t planned it out at all. I knew I had some minced beef but I didn’t want to make any of my usual recipes. I wanted to do something different, so I did. It turned out quite nicely and was…
