Hey there Sparkers It's been a tough week or so and I took some time to sit with the things that have been going on. Didn't exercise except in the garden, but the last couple of days I have been swimming and that has helped me regroup and get ... Read more

Thought I'd better get a picture before we eat them. Tallulah, who lays the green eggs, is going broody so this might be the last one for a while. The other eggs are laid... Read more

Slept like a log

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      6 comments

Got over six hours which is unusual for me. Even though the gardening is persistent, it doesn't feel like effort, so I haven't been tracking it. Or using my fitbit, I find wearing a bracelet tends to give me tingling in my wrist, and we don't w... Read more

Work has been a mad house. We are two people down in our team and the work has been pouring in! Yesterday I was just tired working away, my hands were sore and I could hardly see when I stepped away from the screen. Far too sore to swim the la... Read more

Cauliflower rice by request

Sunday, October 26, 2014      9 comments

You can do this with a grater or food processor. Chop the florets off the core of a cauliflower and discard the core. Grate or process the cauliflower until it is in rice sized grains. At this point you can freeze some of it. I keep it in my f... Read more
