The importance of your thoughts

"Like your heart, your immune system is also neurologically sensitive to your thought life.  When your immune system faces attack, which it does when your thought life is toxic, it generates blood proteins called cytokines, which are known to produce fatigue + depression... toxic thoughts and the emotions they generate interfere with body's natural healing process.

Your thoughts can de-stress you, making you more clever, calm and in control of your emotions, or they can do just the opposite! The choice is yours."

Really enjoyed this book and she goes through 12 steps to detox your thought life.

A little holiday

Spending a few days away just boosts the system... and Hermanus is still stunning in winter!

Early morning & hot drinks all round... let's go

Our "home" for a few days was beautiful & modern.

This quaint coffee shop had the best treats!!

Wayne had Banting Cheesecake

Relaxing with my favourite human beings.

Chia porridge

So easy and delicious, with whatever toppings take your fancy.

Overnight Chia Goodness:
3 - 4 tablespoons Chia seeds
+- 1 cup milk
1 teaspoon honey
2 tablespoons yoghurt (if you don't have, don't worry)

Place all in a tupperware dish or large jar and seal.  Leave overnight and it will swell and be delicious in the morning.

His kindness

Ain't nothing better than a big mug + a bible... Chai latte!

I love this passage in Titus... when the kindness of the LORD appears, it brings washing, renewing and abundant, lavish pouring out on us through Jesus Christ. Oh boy, thats good!!
