This month of May has been so busy. I am only squeezing ‘My Daybook’ post just in time before winter begins tomorrow. The little three kids are in bed and I can sit and reflect on what has been a particularly crazy month of May.
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW I SEE…. Nothing….it’s dark! But when the sun is shining our rose bushes look beautiful at the moment.
I AM GIVING THANKS…..that I get to go out with my hubby Friday night. We are going to see one of our favourite bands “The Idea of North.” I can’t wait!!!!
I AM PRAYING FOR……..so many people at the moment. Mostly at the moment I am praying that this diet we are on will make our sick kids better.
I AM LISTENING TO…. Jay playing some Spanish music on his guitar. The heater is also whirring away trying to dry my bedding so I can get it back on my bed tonight.
I AM THINKING ABOUT…starting a journal to document how we are progressing each week on the diet. Each week there is new developments and I think I will never forget them, but I am sure I will 😉
I AM LEARNING….how to experiment with recipes to make them ketogenic/GAPS friendly. Prior to this diet I could only cook from a recipe. I am finding more and more that I can adapt recipes to suit our needs and even make up a few of my own.
I AM READING….’Gene Genius.’ It is a fascinating book about how our genes influence our health.
IN THE SCHOOLROOM….we are much more on track now after having a rough few weeks. Firstly, it was the adjustment to the diet, then we had our National testing, NAPLAN.
COOKING IN THE KITCHEN….coconut yoghurt, fermented apples, fermented carrots, kefir, lots of slow cooked meat and veggies, broth and a couple of fermented drinks. One yummy drink I made was a kefir beetroot and ginger juice – yum!
Here are some that I made with the kids on the weekend….
I NEVER WANT TO FORGET….our trip to the hills last week. We went to Mundaring Weir. It was a beautiful autumn day and the scenery was lovely. The whinging 3 year old in the back of the car on the way there wasn’t so lovely (he was crying that his foot was ‘wobbly’ – we think he might have had pins and needles!). Nevertheless, we arrived after 50 minutes of driving. We had a lovely walk and then cooked a BBQ lunch. We then got back in the car and drove to the other side of the Weir, had a walk across the dam wall and then made ourselves comfortable and began some nature journalling. It was a day to remember. Even Dami keeps asking me if we can go back to the hills.
PLANNING FOR THE WEEK AHEAD….appointments, a coffee night with a dear friend, lots of school and no doubt lots of cooking!
