James is smoking up the barn with all his activity.
The flame gazing is totally relaxing and one can feel the benefits to the old adrenals...
On way home we stopped in at Ruth Pretty's for a cuppa. I have never had a bad cuppa or treat there ever. As I no longer have coffee or cake in the home I do so enjoy a jolly nice cuppa and treat. Oh my the ginger slice was just how I used to make it with heaps of ginger - DELISH!
Changing the diet for family members has been totally worth it for their health.
But I have struggled. I miss cooking how I used to cook. I miss eating food I enjoyed.
It is quite the adjustment to flip your diet on its head.
And often it falls to the wife/mother as we are typically the ones that do the grocery shopping, menu plan to suit all dietary requirements as well as likes and dislikes and then us mums/wives cook it.
But saying that it has been totally worth it and the results outstanding for all the effort.
While listening I casted on my Pure Joy Shawl. The wool is 100% lambs wool from Otago New Zealand but it is dyed in Tokyo by Ruataniwhadye Studio. So far it is a super fun pattern to knit. I'm up to learning short rows.
The project bag was a gift from a friend - she embroidered it and is very special to me.
So another fabulous weekend. I even got to lie in bed both Saturday and Sunday - something I never do but as there are no Farm Stay Guests currently I do not have to get up. Plus I am trying ever so hard to work on getting enough sleep so staying in bed for as long as I can is terribly good for me, not just decadent.
Hope you all had a great weekend too, see yea on Friday.
