#324 Little Loaves

I have finally been testing out my little Zojirushi bread machine and I’m happy to report that it makes delicious bread! I’m looking for a recipe for bread that my sister in law brought over once from a farmers market. It was filled with figs, dates and spices and I don’t know what else, except…

#323 It’s Official

My Christmas shopping has begun! The reason is that some gifts need to be ordered and I need to factor in postage time. It’s pretty exciting and I’ve been saving all year. Tomorrow I will finish my lists and send through and pay for some presents 🙂 I love Christmas! I love giving anytime really,…

#322 Celebration 🎂

Today was Tommy’s birthday. I still can’t get my head around the fact that he is 10! And yet, that is the truth. Birthdays always make me feel nostalgic. It’s the nicest feeling. I enjoy going back through tender memories and also appreciating the person for who they are right now. Singing happy birthday to…

#321 Night off

I’m taking the night off 🙂 I’m in need of an early night. Sweet dreams. xo

#320 City

Today I headed to the city to shop for a birthday gift. Gift shopping is the best 🙂 It was boiling hot all day and the coolest places were the shops and the train. Glad to be home out of the heat, with the gift safely stashed and ready to be wrapped. xo

#319 The good kind!

I’m am tired, the best kind of tired 🙂 I smell of sunshine and warm summer haze. It was hot today, but lovely.

#318 Plans

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
