warning….. u need to stand on your head to look at the photos i’ve uploaded. wordpress is upside down tonite
it’s autumn. my absolute favourite season. still, calm days. mirror flat water. burnt orange and yellow foliage and spectacular sunsets.
last night i cooked my first brew of yummy warming soup for dinner…..
madras curry powder
chop all veggies. fry onion, celery, spices. add veggie stock to pot. add chopped veggies. cover, cook till soft. stab blend to desired consistency. serve with a blob of natural yoghurt and a sprinkle of some paprika. if there’s a boy in the house, fill him up with crusty white bread as an extra!

I’m still working on “sunflower”. it’s a very slow process and gets slower when life takes over. i’m in a “way too much going on” phase. too many thoughts about life, finances, upcoming holidays, upcoming family wedding, bushfires, work, naughty visiting dogs, art extension group homework and weight loss!
on finances:- the house hunting cycle begins….any hints gratefully accepted
on upcoming holidays:- 2 weeks beginning with my brother’s wedding (see next bit), roadtrip from Peterborough to Halls Gap in the Grampians, to Mildura and Stefano’s restaurant, then east along the Murray river to Echuca for a spot of paddlesteamer spotting and canoeing, then south to Myrtleford to visit with Auntie Trish and Uncle Bruce and finally to Alexandra to leave the caravan for those who need it post-bushfires.
on upcoming family wedding – Stu’s getting married!!! My job for the day is to provide the metre long, Murray Cod shaped pinata as a replacement for a wedding cake….. the artist in me cannot do a dodgy job – the stress levels are starting to escalate….. any help here would be gratefully accepted too!
on bushfires – it just keeps going doesn’t it. I find it really hard to comprehend that there are still fires burning – people are still suffering.
on work – busy, busy, busy!
on naughty visiting dogs – no names neccessary! a very naughty dog that tried to bite my husband (seriously and three times…..) and thinks it’s funny to rip plants to shreds while I’m standing there looking at him…… He is quite funny but needs the wooden spoon…..
mmmm bugger – it’s upside down!!!
on weight loss – for those who are wondering how that is going…… not a drop of alcohol for 61 days + a healthy balanced diet + regular exercise = approx 10kgs lighter!!! i’ve still got a long way to go but i feel really healthy and virtuous!
stay safe in tomorrow’s predicted horrible, dangerous bushfire weather.
