#294 The days go by…

I am amazed to realise that there are a mere 71 days until the end of the year! I was thinking about my writing project here and how on some days or evenings, when I’ve opened up my computer I have had no idea what I’m going to say. Some posts have just been short…

#293 Glitz & Glam

On my YouTube travels I’ve watched a few documentary style shows about Jewellery collections. This evening I came across one about the sale of some of the Jewellery of the late , great and very glamorous Elizabeth Taylor. Wow! I was totally blown away by the story of her life through her jewellry. What an…

#292 Eagles & Pasties.

**Saturday night movie reccomendation**If you haven’t seen the movie Eddie the Eagle, then take my advice and watch it! Such a wonderful and heart warming movie based on a true story. I really love this movie 🙂 I made some pasties minus the swede, which is required for a traditional Cornish pastie. I even went…

#291 Done & Dusted

I got all my food shopping done today 🙂 Tomorrow I will organise a few things such as separating and freezing items. I’m going to try and do some prep for the week too. Just simple things like peeling and chopping. I bought a few items in bulk too. Everything came in under budget which…

#289 Cardiac Rehab

I’m all listened out today as I spent all day at the hospital. Because of the stuff with my heart, I’m listed as having a heart condition. I know I have coronary artery disease and some other irregularity of the aorta, but in my mind that doesn’t mean I have a heart condition. Anyway it…

#288 Boxes.

Today I was going through some things and sorting items to donate to the thrift shop. It was enjoyable and I found so many things I love in my storage boxes. We rent our current home and because of that I have lots of storage boxes. I found some great notebooks I forgot I even…

#287 Being Resourceful.

On my travels around the internet today looking for good and budget conscious ideas for food, I came across a really great site. It’s called Love Food Hate Waste. They do have a YouTube channel with a few good videos, some are recipes, while others share useful tips. The best thing by far is the…

#286 Fabulous!

This new to me book is, as today’s title proclaims, fabulous! Seriously. It is full of great recipes using all sorts of creative shortcuts, and who doesn’t love that? I also love her conversational, witty style of writing. I’m about halfway through and even more excited about it today than I was yesterday when I…
