  • Seaweed, You are a very lucky girl living in paradise down there. One day I am gonna live by the beach. That would be my ultimate dream, but DH isn't all that fussed !!!!
    The CW cake is for a wee girl. She loves pink and purples....... so not 100 % sure what to make?
    But I am sure you will all give me some wonderful ideas
    I posted some pics in my albums. Still not sure how to photo bucket them straight on here ??????

    • if it is photobucket, just post the url. fairy cake! as in the fairy's skirt as the cake. or fairy house even. or a unicorn cake which would be a challenge.

      love my ocean. it does get cold and windy and there is loads of things we just cant grow. some years, like this one, i think we have had 4 or 5 sunbathing days so far this spring /summer. we are also known to need to have the fire on xmas day some years as well. but i love the salt water more than anything. just looking at it and the different patterns the waves make and the different colours every day. the wind is wild but you get to actually like it. i poss could live way up in the mountains too as i do like a good hill to go up and down. in fact i am off in 5 for my last long walk of the day up a hill before the kids return home.

      • i love living on the water, too. it's very nice. my lavender is doing ok. in fact, that and weeds do really well. LOL

        today has been a lazy day -- very nice indeed just to hang around the house.

        we are down to two chickens a week, 3 fish, and 2 red meat days. I'm happy with this. I should get into offal, but we just can't get there.

        • we dont eat that much chicken. i still only really like the breast so i still feel guilty eating it. but we'd prob do 5 or 6 meat days and 1 or 2 fish days. offal you need to practise. having been vegan for so long i kinda had to eat it in the same way, i cant really eat chicken and the same way i have to shoot my own deer.

          nothing lazy about today. 20ks. i actual felt so tired i almost wasnt sure how i was gonna make the last hill. but the brain is the weakest muscle so i just concentrated on one footstep at a time. then i found one of the most poached lizards around squashed on the road =( i put it in my pocket so as i can take it to the man who photos them as apparently they have unique patterns. then it occured to me that if it was alive, i have never had anything of that value on my person. quite a freaky thought. i so hate foreign reptile traders.

          • I can get ground offal which we put into burgers and the like, and I suppose I could mix it with spices and make home-made sausages. . . still, who has the time these days? LOL

            Comment


            • i make sausages but only with game meats. it's actual quite easy if you have the gear. you could make meat loaf instead. ground heart you can put in chilli but once you have heart, you would think it is a waste. i did find a recipe for haggis which i reckoned would make a good spice mix for an offal sausage minus the oatmeal. liver pate is divine too.

              just loading the gun to go look for rabbits lol i got lent one which is sighted in properly so i am going to try it out. i have found yet another use for clubbells. training for carrying a gun!

              • offal, offal, eww yuk offal !!!!!!!
                I so do not do offal, however .....nah on second thoughts.....no way !!!! LOL
                Swam 100 lengths of our little 14mtr pool yesterday, and walked only 4kms today....but its a start. I have had an incredibly sore back since my wee grain/sugar bout........but its feeling a wee bit better today. I am convinced the those nastys caused it all. My gut was so bloated, like an 8 month pregnant woman, and not sure how that related to back issues, but it seems to. Anyway I kettlebelled after my walk, and only managed 20 swings before I could feel it in my back so have left it at that.
                Another big day on the puter today
                Spoke to our wee poppet in america yesterday, and she is so loving that country and all its wonderful people. Thank you America - for taking care of my weeny thing !!!!!!
                I organised a couple of baskets to send to her and the family....so will practice photobucketing.
                anyway off for some fried chicken breast..........yum !!!!

                      • today is a glorious, sunny day. so beautiful out. might go to the beach while DH is writing and before we head to the office for skype.

                        yay.

                          lmao gwamma. you so dont know what you are missing. but since you only get one liver, one heart and 2 kidneys per animal, i will take one for the team and have yours. glorious windy sunny day here. i would get sandblasted on the beach but i still may go for my pre-lunch on my own walk. if you back stuffs out with the swings, can you do a kettle bell version of a barbarian squat? the clubbell one you cast the clubbell over your shoulder and hold it out in front of you and squat right down then come up. continuing to hold the clubbell out at arm's length in front of you. it engages all your core and you do your arms etc casting plus all the ass and legs. but since you keep your whole core strong thru the movement, it doesnt hurt your back. or shouldnt.

                            Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

                              Gwamma - you know how I am about anti-inflammatory foods and my back, make sure you try and get in some fish oil, green tea, some berries, tumeric, linseed, kelp - all good things to get them muscles and joints back in action.

                              Anyone else got a low appetite with the warmer weather? I do this every year, but this time its crazy. I guess I'm not getting the low blood sugars this year so I'm finding it to be a great appetite regulator, but seriously I'm going whole days where I'm just eating because I probably should! Its not like me at all, my mother always describes me as a 'good doer', meaning I love my food, just not at the moment though. On the plus side I've lost a little more weight

                              Crazy busy week at work last week, so I'm planning on having a quiet one this week. Plans are all good but then reality hits..... DH and I are off to Auckland on Friday for my work christmas party and will stay the weekend too. We had a total miscommunication (ie he wasn't listening when I told him) and he thought he was coming to the party as well so now he's sulking and saying stuff like 'why am I bothering to go' and so forth. Normally they just fly each of us VM's to Auckland for one afternoon for the party and then home by 5pm, but they couldn't get me on the last flight out of Auckland so I'm forced to stay for at least one night. We thought it would be a nice excuse to catch a weekend away so paid for DH to fly up and then an extra night, so back on Sunday. Noone else's partners will be at the party which is only for like 4 hours on the friday, but he's going to sulk like a baby anyway. Men!

                              We had a blast at our cocktail party on Saturday night, and I even managed to keep most of the food primal. With the exception of the cocktail's of course (pretty sure Tequila and Champagne and Brandy aren't primal!). I did a nice big platter with cheese, gherkins, marinated olives and salami, and crackers for those who felt the need. Then at the restuarant meal following I had a lovely meal of Kumara mash, with steamed spinich, chicken stuffed with prawns and an onion gravy. Like I said though, the appetite wasn't exactly there so I left most of the mash and spinich on the plate. It was nice to eat out without making compromises though.

                              • LL good doers are horses or ponies that run on the smell of an oily rag so totally different meaning here lol i am feeling less like eating but it may also be coz i have been making an effort not to overdo it. but yes generally in the summer i dont feel like eating that much.
