My fav breakfast

This is my go-to at the moment.  Lots of avocado and sauteed spinach with garlic on toast and a egg on the side.  So good.

these days

This is still our favourite cd... probably our oldest one too.

We went to the Hillsong Christmas Spectacular... the singing was so beautiful.

My baby girl cut her hair.  A beauty.

It's a baking day today... Becca and I are baking and listening to the cd mentioned above!
Happy holidays!

Along our paths

There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the incarnation.—Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water

Yes, he was born and walked along our paths and touched what was separate and made it profoundly sacred and inclusive.

Cherry picking

We did our annual picking in Ceres and I had to take a picture of the beautiful dam
on the farm.  I ate so many cherries.

We always pick too much - cherries are so addictive.

Picking with these beauties is always so much fun!!  A full tummy and a full heart!

Easy banana ice-cream

This is silly easy.  Chop up two bananas and freeze (at least 2 hours)
Place the frozen pieces in a food processor and blend.  It will turn from mushy to creamy.
Done!  If you want to flavour it some more, then these are 2 options:

Choc-banana:  I added a heaped tablespoon of nutella and choc chips. Quick mix.  Eat
For the Almond-banana: I added a heaped tablespoon of almond butter. Quick mix.  Eat

Picking greens

My spinach is growing beautifully.  This is such an easy thing to grow.  Well worth it.
