Eating Healthy

Hubby had accumulated some points from the use of our credit card. What better way to use them than to get a piece of useful equipment for the house? 

And that's what we did. We decided on something useful and desired by both of us, with a bit of a nudge from a friend.

Here's the result - yummy bread. 
This is homemade wholemeal multigrain bread. I added bran and rolled oats. Also put in three kinds of seeds - pumpkin, black sesame and sunflower. Love it! 

And this is how I enjoy having my bread - cheese on toast with slices of cold cucumber.

Gosh, makes me want to go make a slice right now!

Raindrops and Roses....

I wonder how many remember the lyrics of that song sung by Julie Andrews in the famous, "Sound of Music" What a classic! I must have watched the original umpteen times. So many wonderful songs. Loved Julie Andrew's voice. Tried so hard to emulate her - unsuccessfully of course. 

But, back to that song.... "I simply remember a few of my favourite things ....." she croons so effortlessly, assuring the children under her charge and redirecting them to more positive thoughts.

Perhaps it's because I need redirecting of thoughts now that I decide to flick through my photos! Ha! Ha! Post holiday mood and all that.

Well, this is one thing that never fails to cheer me up! Steamed popiah, with the sweet sauce, done in my hometown style. Not fattening either! 
Just looking at this picture puts a smile on my face! Must try to make another trip to get some soon!

At A Loss

At a loss for words

Hence the silence prolonged

Unlike times past

This one seems to go on and on and on

Walk View

Sometimes we go for walks. Hubby, the dog and I. Sometimes I even go by myself. We need to do a bit of a workout for our hearts to stay healthy. 

Most days when we do, we see spectacular sunsets .... like this. 
Love where I live!

New Breakfast Fad

Hubby and I are into healthier eating these days. He has discovered a new thing - microwaved breakfasts. I decided to join him and this is what I do - heat up the oats with water and cook the eggs at the same time.  
Then I add some nuts, or perhaps fruit and voila! A nutritious, filling start to the day.

Feeling Better

So glad that Arrow #3 is feeling better. We go out as she recuperates. 

I can't help but think of the familiar adage - you don't appreciate good health till you lose it. Thankfully in this case, she hasn't lost it! If anything, she has gained it. 

Yes, thankful!
