to make my life more healthy and beautiful
to redecorate and to have fun in the garden.
Her style, her thrift adventures, the way she decorates her cottage, the food that she chooses to eat
it's what makes me visit her as often as she posts.
I wish that she lived closer so that I could meet her in person.
Healthy yes and tasty too.
Take an avocado, mash it up
pop in on top of a skinny slice of bread
top it with tomato slices
a wee bit of pepper and salt
fast and easy
lunch is served!
(I used half an avocado)
Janet over at The Gardener's Cottage is excited about
their site is very interesting, inspiring and informative.
The weekend had it's ups and downs
the sunshine was around for most of the weekend hooray!
Mr. HB and I pottered about outside in The Humble Bungalow garden.
Mr. HB's mom had a fall and she broke her hip
many hours were spent in the emergency ward while they took x-rays
she'll be on bed rest for weeks while it heals
she lives in a facility that offers 24 hour care
so she will be well looked after.
Such a stressful day waiting, wondering, and worrying...
it's difficult seeing someone you love in pain
and however well informed we are there is always the chance that this might not turn out well.
For now we can breathe a little easier...
On the menu tonight:
organic free range chicken
I harvested some rhubarb this afternoon and made a crisp for dessert
which I'll serve with a dollop of coconut yogurt.
We discovered a fabulous red wine through our catering friend Julie
it's a Shiraz from Australia
not a very inspiring name but a great flavour.
the grass is green
with all our rain we haven't needed to water it
the garlic is growing taller
the rhubarb thicker
a bit of whimsy
bowling balls peek out from the plantings
the raised vegetable beds
sweet peas are planted at the back with lattice to climb up on
the clematis is glorious
everything looks so lovely in the sunshine
it was great to be out and not need a sweater or a jacket
We are both weary after a day of gardening but it's a healthy feeling
knowing that we worked hard and accomplished a lot.
I am going to sleep like a baby tonight!
How was your weekend?
