Life is so full on. It could be the crazy Christmas period. They don't call it the 'silly season' for nothin!
So, what have I been up to this week, thinking about the highlights?! Im sitting with a Pure Blonde White beer (lowish carb), very nice, not a Margaret River beer, but that's ok. Have tried the beers out at The Cowaramup Brewing Company, all good, my favourite would be the white. They have a lovely little beer tasting 'plate'.
Anny whoo... getting back to my week. Sid has put me on the Body Trim diet, just in time for controlling the Christmas Cheer! The diet sounds quite reasonable. Haven't been able to get my dvd to work until the last couple of days, so on dvd1, it's all about 6 smallish serves of protein, cutting down on the carbs, and in the first week just doing a half hour of walking, per day.

The vege patch has gone to seed. So, now it all has to come up and go into the compost. I love it when it goes to flower and then seed, all the bees visit, and then the birds. And, I kinda like the cottage garden thing, where random plants pop up and you let them.

Put my hand up to help photographically document the regeneration of the coast after the fires. Im very excited about that. It will be very interesting to see how the new growth returns. I have noticed, walking along the beach, quite a few lizard tracks to the sea weed. Their habitat has been burnt and they have turned to what the sea washes up to nourish themselves.

Dinner at Sid's with the girls, very healthy chicken and steamed vege's (some silverbeet from my garden), very yummy also. You can see I love my food.
Made myself some dhal, again, using some of my silverbeet. I made it just for myself and it is so hot it would blow your head off. But I like it like that.
Made dinner for Madge and The Doctor, following Sid's diet, I compiled a Aristos whisky cured smoked salmon and prawn salad. An early night.
Made it a mission to shop and buy my Christmas items in Margaret River. So had a lovely time wandering around. You can buy it all in Margs. I was impressed. Finished off the shopping at the HandMade Markets yesterday morning, good variety and selection quality products, all very individual.
