BAKING ……YEP!


prettycoolidea

My one main Fetish …..yep I love baking bread , there’s no big science behind it. I really enjoy it and it relaxes me. (got to score on that one)

  • Rosemary infused
  • Cinnamon and sugar
  • White Ciabatta
  • Raisin and carrot
  • Whole wheat
  • Pumpkin seed with oregano

This list goes on….. these, however, are by far my favourites.

After the dough has risen to twice the volume in size and already in the pan, I use a very sharp knife to make the slits on top, then either olive oil infused with rosemary or my go to cinnamon mix sprinkle on top for added flare.

To store:

place in brown paper bag and can be kept in the refrigerator  for a week or less. Always best though, fresh from the oven with butter and cheese. Enjoy:)

pretty cool idea

VOID OF THOUGHTS :)


rain-340885_1920

There’s nothing better I like than the sound of rain falling on rooftops. The sound is like a lullaby edging me to sleep, all thoughts, worries all on the back burner. My only conscious thought right now is listening and letting my mind drift to where my body wishes.

It’s truly the most relaxed I’ve been in a while….weeks actually. I’m loving it for now.

I think back to a time when I was much  younger, and loving the rain making the ground all muddy and sticky; can I just say; the smell when those first few drops hit the dirt, this smelled of chocolate and wet sand, mixed with the smell of the sea……to me! this was the scent in my head that I simply cannot forget. A treasured memory.

Today was like that….and I slept and slept. Dreaming of nothing, thinking of nothing except the sound of the rain an ever-present awareness, like a song thunderous and chillingly soothing all at the same time. I wish every weekend would rain.

THOUGHTS…..THINKING AWAY


smoothie-463331_1920

It’s been ten (10) days now of my smoothie blast-a-ton. Or something to that effect, truly it’s been a wretched period, with little to no breakouts on my face, just the random  show-casers who feel the need to be seen, when clearly they were supposed to be hidden; hence the action .

But, it’s all good , happy reporting that I feel less bloatish (yes that’s my word) and somewhat weightless. Is this what I really want to say right now? I feel light, extremely so. Morning routine/ day routine

1 8oz cup of turmeric tea a bit on the warm side

2 Eggs scrambled, or sunny side up/ cranberry pancakes  with English breakfast tea

1 glass of water (really an effort here, no kidding :))

8oz pasta or rice with peas, maybe some veggies depending and cucumber salad

more water, with much effort

1 cup ginger tea

5 crix  that’s a biscuit  or a slice of my special bread

more water

oats with milk chocolate

8oz cup of turmeric tea still on the warm side

Now after a full day I am left with a desire to get fit, and a desire to eat, and to my way of thinking I choose to eat, as sooner than later… with the right frame of mind I can overcome everything else, and still be healthy  .

 

STARTING OVER ……SAY WHAT!!


image

Yesterday I was thoroughly drained, exhausted and in badly need of fluids, so dehydrated I more or less felt really bombed out. I’m beginning to wonder if maybe I picked up a bug. Having to shake this very listless feeling is tiring indeed!
So much to get done and so little time in which to do these tasks. I need a booster! Lately I’ve been having berry smoothies, with a hint of vegetables thrown in for good measure, and I’m starting to see a difference in my skin’s texture. Mostly it’s been clear ……for the minor dark marks here and there, (total age killers, I might add)

image

Recently, though I had a massive breakout session with the lurkers. And then reality set in to further test my resolve; what you put in your body is what you look like on the outside!
image

My consciousness has perfect skin, though he may think otherwise….. Tight, poreless, ever flushed, and I have never, not once seen him dripping in sweat. Then again he’s a fitness guru, and being in the zone you tend to mimic the other.
So, I’m starting over , changing the course as they say, improvement is on the way. And at the same time, living the good life!
Till you hear from me……….

THE PARADOXICAL COMMANDMENTS

“The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”
Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council

INTERACTIVE CHIT CHAT AND MORE…..


Have you ever wondered why we say the things we do ?

He : I love you..

She: Why do you always say it like its the answer for everything, like it’d fix things!

He: Why do you always have to be so angry?

She: You never listen ! Its too much just being in the same room with you!! I’m trying to explain something to you, and all you can think of ….is sex!

He: We never see each other anymore, don’t you know I love you

She: You were the one who decided this, we are not living on mars, if you wanted to see me you could’ve made the effort, this was so last century!! don’t you get that I’m tired of this circus we have , its no longer fun. If you loved me like you say , you would make the time, make an effort dammit!!

He: I told you about my work! I’m very busy!

She: Bullshit! you’re full of crap I think you’re making excuses and I am done!!.

What can one think of the circumstances that led to the above scene? I am curious to accumulate some feedback and your help would be greatly appreciated. So why not let me know your thoughts in the comments below;

 

QUOTES……


public-domain-images-free-stock-photos-light-sky-silo-windows-lillyphotographer-1000x668

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

SONG OF THE DAY


MUSINGS (OR SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY)


IN FULL FLIGHT

 

I have begun to have second and thirds thoughts about this

           Am I doing the right thing

                  should I venture, or catapult

                           take the easy way or the hard way

 

Making it easier is not helping, the pressure is building…..

         I have to get there on my own,

            Or what would have been  the point of it all in the first place?

 

Nothing being said and done now will be totally useless;

        the ball was dropped and shit happened, on another note though,

             the clouds do have an answer, being so far away.

 

Try as I may it’s a long way off, but I have a plan or two;

           I didn’t get here by guessing and fumbling my way through this life,

                 the journey was planned, the ground-work layered from inception 

                   So am I worried? Never!  Am I going to do this? Hell yes! 

                           And no one is  stopping me …….
