Super Impromptu Holiday!
Friday, June 06, 2014      13 comments

Had a wonderful time just walking and walking, enjoying urban life, going to the art gallery (special Bacon and Moore exhibition, and I also enjoyed revisiting some old faves). Found two very nice bow ties for DH also (he's a bit of a bow tie ... Read more
Soup All Gone Plan B
Thursday, June 05, 2014      15 comments

And what a great Plan B! Nope, not a non-vegan version to stave off dear daughter with chicken or fish. That would just attract the attentions of dear husband anyhow, especially if I made my chicken minestrone with basil pesto: he love... Read more
Within Range
Tuesday, June 03, 2014      21 comments

Well within calorie range yesterday -- and that exceptionally wonderful Indian eggplant/lentil supper soup was just terrific. Only problem: it's vegan and dear daughter loves it too: so it won't last out the week. Sigh. Gotta learn to share, ... Read more
Carb and Calorie Overload!
Monday, June 02, 2014      17 comments

Yikes!! Sure didn't "stick to the program" yesterday -- clocked an excess of calories mostly due to an excess of carbs (but the fats were high too). How often do I eat a hamburger? Maybe a couple times a year. And this was grille... Read more
Sunday More of the Same!
Sunday, June 01, 2014      12 comments

Well, different a bit -- but same mood and tone. Made a second batch of that fabulous Indian eggplant lentil soup with even more fresh ginger and garlic and flaked coconut (but no coconut milk): and two huge gorgeous shiny eggplants prepare... Read more
Saturday Morning
Saturday, May 31, 2014      13 comments

Don't you just love 'em? It's a gorgeous day here -- blue sky, warm, birds singing, flowers blooming (iris! chestnut candles!!) DH has headed out to the golf course for his sacrosanct Saturday game with the guys (we played last night t... Read more
Flying High!
Friday, May 30, 2014      18 comments

At the end of April we'd attended our son's graduation -- and it was so memorable. What a tough tough program, to become a commercial pilot: literally so many ups and downs! And: the aviation school is a long long way from home too in the far... Read more
Muffler???
Thursday, May 29, 2014      13 comments

Elderly Volvo needs a new muffler (and no, not of the variety that you tuck around your neck to ward off wintry breezes)! Just a bit ironic, when we're finally getting the summer tires installed. But can't complain: this is a car which had cos... Read more
Leap of Faith!
Wednesday, May 28, 2014      22 comments

Oh what a winter that was. Even with a gloriously scented garden bouquet on my kitchen table (lilac AND lily-of-the-valley, plus forget-me-not and japonica, so pretty) I can't forget what we went through. But nevertheless this morning I'm ... Read more
Easy Day Coming Up
Tuesday, May 27, 2014      9 comments

Adjourned a matter that was pressing. Whomped through a whack of over-due-to-be-read professional reading yesterday (and inserted some key entries into our "law digest" for quick retrieval). Nothing urgent, for once. Gorgeous day ou... Read more
May Fave
Monday, May 26, 2014      15 comments

What a marvellous month! Now my lilacs are in bloom -- and the bouquet on the kitchen table smells wonderful. Lily of the valley will be next. Lots and lots of golf. Going to fit in a little work too, of course -- yes I will!!... Read more
Verandaaaaaaaah!
Sunday, May 25, 2014      12 comments

Planted my geraniums yesterday on the front verandah and the back lower and high decks . . . Swept the decks and the breezeway (lots and lots of pine needles) and completely exhausted myself actually: yikes!! However, it's now warm enou... Read more
It Never Hurts To Be Kind
Saturday, May 24, 2014      19 comments

Just a follow up thought to the modern manners blog with thanks for all the great responses. We all encounter contemporary rudeness, for sure. (Even very occasionally here: some of those recipe comments can be a bit un-nuanced!! Really, if yo... Read more

Contentment
Thursday, May 22, 2014      19 comments

Experiencing a contented patch. All round, things are humming along quietly. Sure I'm aware that I could freak out about this. Or that. But for some reason, not. All good, or pretty good, which is good enough. Yeah. ... Read more
