  • Super photo, Seas. Lovely kete.

    Yeah, our sand is darker but I'm sure your sky is just as blue on a fine day.

    Our incredibly green grass is compensation for the amount of rain we tend get all through winter and even summer (though not this year).

      • Noticed I'm filling out a bit again, and I can let that happen a bit cos it's winter, but gotta get back to strict primal for reasons of digestion, bloating and mood. So...


        B: One hard boiled egg and a banana.
        S: One apple, three slices cheese, few almonds.
        L: Two large bowls vege soup from lamb bone broth.
        D: Beef curry casserole with carrots and onion, roasted pumpkin and parsnip. Apple and berry crumble for dessert (a few oats in the crumble topping)
        S: Two squares dark chocolate.

        I also may have nibbled on a few almonds and a dried apricot. So that's pretty good going - I was intending to omit the chocolate and dried fruit altogether, as I feel the need to go a bit lower carb at the moment. So I will try again today.

        Workout was one-hour weights class.

        We're eating out tonight. Meal will be large and won't be primal, but I'll do my best and planning to enjoy as it's a rare occasion anyway and super rare because might be the last meal our family has together for 12 months.

        • B: Mushroom omelette, leftover beef curry, chunk of camembert, mandarin, apple.
          L: Banana or something that I grabbed because there was no time to eat properly (and I was saving my appetite for tonight).
          S: Chocolate mug cake (banana egg and cocoa), some dark chocolate.
          Dinner out: Large slice of soft white bread with liberal spread of garlic butter! Panfried fish, lemon sauce, mashed potato, green salad. A pork spare rib off my daughter's plate. And kahlua cheesecake for dessert. Loved it all. Non primal, but not actually disastrous after all.

          Exercise was a sunny walk with my daughter along the foreshore Beautiful.

          • Brunch: Two slices of bacon, two scrambled eggs with parsley and cream, grated cheese, an orange, 1/2 banana.
            Snack: Few squares dark chocolate.
            Dinner: Mince and kumara bake with cheese.

            Exercise amounted to stepping outside to feed the chickens.

              • Yes, it's a good wholesome smell out in the bush. We heard lots of birdlife too, though they are difficult to spot unless you are very patient and still.

                • Birdwatching is one of my absolute favourite pastimes! Smells are really important to me - I remember events a lot of times by the way things smelled. Like when I had measles and was in that hot dark room and my mom bought me a new doll - the smell of the material it was made from will take me straight back to that room with the royal blue velvet curtains and feeling as weak as a kitten!

                  I love the fact that you don't have snakes there! I might just have to move there!

                    • Loving your pictures. Looking forward to seeing the summer version So very different to what we have here on the edge of a desert! (Though it can be beautiful too. The light here is amazing).

                      • Hi Emma, Siobhan, Coll, thanks for dropping in and it's nice to know you enjoy my pix.

                        Today was very exciting, it was actually snowing during my tramp this morning. I can count on one hand the times I have experienced this in my life so this was very special, even more so because I had my daughter with me.

                        So I squeaked in my boots through the snow, following bunny paw prints down the track and ate snow and threw snowballs and touched icicles. So much fun. Also I think I saw a little native robin.



                        You can see the snowflakes in this one:

                            • Oh, the snow almost made me tear up! I was talking to an ex who's renting from his ex and he said she'd rent me a room if I moved back to Oregon. I've tried to make a go of it in this unremitting heat, but spending three months a year primarily indoors is starting to get to me in a big way.

                              Also, I love black sweaters and I hardly ever get to wear them here.
