Which is something I ran out of last Monday night!
My week became chaotic due to an assignment at work, and I was very tired by the time I arrived home.
Every time I sat down to write, I had writers block and couldn’t think straight. The only saving grace was my very first downshift day on Wednesday and I managed to relax a little bit.
We have been eating so many veggie meals, and have only had meat once during the week which was sustainably harvested fish with the Marine Stewardship Council logo on it. We certainly have not found this lifestyle change boring and find that meals are so quick to prepare. My favourite veggie meals so far has been Lentil and Mushroom Bourguignon. It was easy to make, and was delicious. I served it with mashed potato.
Over the weekend, I managed to help Kim decorate a room, hung lots of shelves for the new classroom/art studio, cleaned out the both chookhouses and gave them a coat of lime wash on the inside, harvested some tomatoes (now in abundance) and a cucumber, and planted some spring onions.
Other than that, Ben and I went to the movies to see the new Tin-Tin movie. I haven’t been to the movies for over a year so thought it would be a nice treat. We both enjoyed it and had a good time.
However, a big surprise for us when we got back to the car was that some one had side-swiped us and smashed my rear bumper in. They were nice enough to leave a note with a phone number, however it rings out every time I give it a call. Looks like I am up for $550 for the excess on the insurance. One expensive movie!
I am hoping that my blogging mojo will return during the week, so stay tuned! I am hoping to get a fortnightly podcast up and running again about all things sustainable living wise. I just need a few ideas. Any suggestions for a podcast theme would be welcome to get the creative juices flowing!
