Nourish: I currently use organic and what I thought were chemical free skin products, it turns out that most of them still use Phenoxyethanol and Ceteareth-20, both of which we would be better off without! I am going to try making my own nourishing skin care product using this recipe from WellnessMama. I've bought the organic beeswax chips on line...will give you an update on how I go .
|Organic Bees Wax chips...smell amazing...these have not been purified so still smell like honey.|
Prepare: I am keeping my eye on the baby capsicums that I am growing. Am going to have a go at making Preserved baby bell with feta. Just need all the little capsicums to ripen. I think these will be a great gift idea. More next month on this project. Fingers crossed.
|Can see few have gone a gorgeous ripe red.....still waiting on the others....|
|Not all of this will find it's way to the worm farm...most would have to go in recycle bin|
|Made whole sheets and envelopes not printed on both sides into scratch pads....|
Grow: It's autumn and time for the pumpkins !! I love pumpkin and a pot of pumpkin soup on a cold day warms the body and soul. Have started to harvest and their are still about 10 more on the vines....leaving these outside under shelter to dry out for about a week.
|The pumpkin Harvest....Qld Blue and butternuts.|
|Still a few hours worth of hand stitching before this panel is completed....each panel measures 50cm x 50cm|
Discover: There is always so much to see and do and find out about. We had a weekend down at our holiday spot and I love the beautiful native plants that are growing wildly there... I also discovered that Life is short and we should all take the time to enjoy beautiful surroundings.
|Cute native plants in amongst all of the beachside scrub.....along with the wombats and native birds.|
Enhance: I love to look for beautiful ways to make life more joyful.....my sister-in-law who passed away 12 years ago always made the most amazing sponge cakes for family birthdays and I sadly thought the recipe was lost, but my brother tells me he found it....can't wait to get that recipe....would love to try this:
|Found this amazing cake decoration on pinterest.....sliced almonds with raspberry & blueberry centres..|
|This cable knitted cushion in boucle....I have some boucle wool I pulled down from a half knitted|
jumper.....long story...wool bought from US on line...$45 postage for one more ball...didn't happen.
Enjoy: I do try and enjoy simple things everyday. A walk along the beach with my two fluffy girls....they love to run and chase birds and paddle at the water's edge....trying to take their photo is always difficult...after several failed attempts, the magic word was smacko...they looked at the camera with big smiles on their faces....shame about my man's hairy legs in the photo !!
|After a long walk on the beach......happy snap....enjoy !!|
