Monday Menu 27 June

My poor blog has been a little neglected as of late.  What with moving house and living in temporary accommodation I seem to be lacking in time and brain space.  So here I am this week trying to turn over a new leaf and get blogging as it is very theraputic for me.

Here is mondays menu.

Monday  Chicken Fahija

Tuesday  Chicken curry pasta

Wednesday  cheese quesadillas with salasa cruda

Thursday  crockpot chicken cacatorrie

Friday  lamb, barley, and vegetable soup

Saturday  middle eastern pizzas

Sunday  Left overs

Denial is ...

Choosing not to stand on the scales this week when I know that it is the one way I can keep my weight steady and helps me feel really good about myself without being obsessive.

Read this article.  I sooooo know the feeling.

Man Meets Scales

I hope that your week is free from denial moments.

I am in denial

I can not deny that my focus on embracing life has hit a wall.  I am not sure what to do next or where to go.  I guess that I have lost focus as life has really been hectic in the last 4 weeks.

So I thought I would start with this quote

“Never anticipate a moment or day in your life, instead learn to anticipate every moment and embrace everyday. Find greatness in everything and purpose even in the hardest times.”


(unknown author)

So take this post as a heafty reminder to myself to take a hard look at my life and start laughing more so that I can embrace my little word a lot more.

Wardrobe Designer

I was pleasantly surprised with McKenzies move this year.  She tried out for a part in the school production and won a fairly major roll.  We are just so proud of how far she has come.  No kidding, just 2 years ago, as a 7 year old,  she was so shy she could hardly stand in front of a class and deliver a speech.  I have seen this kind of fear permeatate into something debilitating in adults so we decided to do something proactive to help develop her self confidence and put her into speech and drama lessons.  I guess they have been worth it because she is now prepared to stand in font of a paying crowd to perform.  Naturally I am the excited mother and personal wardrobe designer.

Wardrobe designer is not something I profess to be good at, in fact I fully admitt I have very little imagination when it comes to the whole dressing up thing.  Thankfully my wonderful mum has lots of little ideas for a gypsy like McKenzie needs to dress as.

So armed with my sisters daughters dress up dress, my Granma's bag of beads, earings and things, one two dollar shop scarf, we are almost ready for the dress rehearsals.


Now I am off to get the flower for the hair and photo can be taken.  Of course my job as Wardrobe designer will then be complete.

Gumboots

Oh my gosh, what is happening to me.  Since I have moved my footware of choice has become gumboots.


I hope this is only a temporary phase.
