at home ..

Hi there.
Well I thought I'd better post about SOMETHING seeing as I haven't posted anything in a while so here are some random things and thoughts around and about my house.

Today I have been eating like a queen. My wonderful husband went out fishing last night and caught a snapper which he then cooked for breakfast - YUM. (I never used to be a fan of fish until I tasted it the way he cooks it! - in butter crumbed in breadcrumbs and yummy herbs n spices).
I didn't take a picture but here is a picture of lunch which was also yum..Fried egg on toast with avocado and tomato and a glass of coke.

Whilst I ate that delicious lunch I managed to squeeze in a couple of pages of the book I'm reading (in between feeding the kids!)
It's quite a good book - I love Ted Dekker's books :-)
Here is a book review on it:

This week and last week has been great for cooking dinners thanks to Kristy over at PaisleyJade for recommending these free printable lists!
It got me all inspired to organise my dinners for 2 weeks
(we'll see how long it lasts ...)

After all that organising I thought maybe I should get back into this list making stuff so I made a list of stuff to do for the day and it actually really helped me be motivated to do more!! Yay!

So after feeling all organised and had the house all clean I was SO pleased to see K helping to clean the window with his slobbery hands and face .. not.
This is a picture of said window. The blurry bit is not the camera, but where the window is so smudged you can't actually see out it clearly haha!!

And the mess continues.. it was tidy that morning I promise!!

So anyway that's my random blog on house stuff.
Also, in case you're interested during my clean up I put a couple things on trade me, a skirt (size 6)and some car mags. (as in tyres, not magazines)

p.s. Roast chicken for dinner too .. YUM what a yum food day! :-)

Brief Post on Sprouts...

Hi there.
Thought I'd better blog seen as I haven't in a while!
Just a short one mind you - on growing SPROUTS :-)

Apparently my mum used to make them, and my mother in law still does make them. She inspired me to start my own growing of sprouts! It's super easy - all you need is a preserving jar, a sprout lid (mine is from Bin Inn in Kamo, I'm not sure if all Bin Inn's have them?) and some sprout seeds.

You just put some seeds in the jar, let them soak for about 10min, then let the water out the lid (which is cleverly designed to keep the seeds in). Then you rinse the growing seeds twice a day for about 3-5 days and wa-la - sprouts :-)

I used about 2 Tablespoons of seed which made far too much for me (since I'm the only one who likes them in my house) so I'll be using less next time haha!!
SO .. go grab yourself a lid and some seed and get growing!
(fun for the kids to watch them grow too!)

Also, here is a shot of my car with it's new mags on. I like them :-)
