I should put up decorations, it’s so festive around here. Two Christmas Specials in two weeks! Dang! Actually, speaking of decorations, how awesome are these? I see a lot of them in my immediate, idiot-crafting, future. Apparently, they are called Himmeli. And there’s a full tutorial here. I like me a good craft tutorial [...]

Home grown persimmons: a gift from a student. Delicious sunny Sunday lunch with my man. Side note: those elliptical bowls? OMG! Love them! The view from the yoga room at this year’s winter yoga retreat.
I am so inspired today, by Australian yogini Tess Heine, who lives most of the year in Nicaragua, and runs community classes for the women there. In her words, she’s always wanted to make a difference, and help people enjoy their lives more. ‘Hopefully,’ she says, ‘ others are inspired to put themselves out there [...]
On Monday morning, I was not at all surprised to find that the yogAttitude card I randomly pulled from my pack was…accepting. I have been having a very hard time with this lately, folks. Why? Because life is so good. It’s been a while since I could honestly say that. Throw me challenges, I can [...]
I’m tired. When I am tired, I get paranoid. Have I mentioned this before? Anyway, KNOWING this fact doesn’t actually help much with the actual experience of the paranoia. Some things do though. Sleep. Watching cooking shows. And writing lists of what I’m grateful for. Even if I am too frikkin tired to be really [...]
It’s been a long weekend here in Australia, in honour of the Queen’s Birthday. The British Queen. Oddly, I don’t think it’s even her actual birthday. There are one or two things about Australia that I don’t yet understand. But hey, a three-day weekend, who’s complaining? Not I, not I! It’s been spent in Lorne, [...]
I have, once again, not had enough sleep. But otherwise, life is good. This week, here’s why: Autumn weather: sometimes sunny, often crisp, always changing. It’s a beautiful season & I really love watching the leaves change, then fall. Seeing people sitting in the sun on the State Library lawn. Parties! There were lots this [...]
The highlight this week, without a doubt, was watching Taasha & Tristan from The Audreys perform live. I went with my rather delicious man-friend (oh, yes, I have kept that rather quiet haven’t I?) and the lovely Pam. We ate Japanese and drank plum wine before the concert. It was all kinda perfect. Well, give [...]
It’s officially chilly here in Melbourne, and with the turning of the seasons come all the pleasures of winter. Well, Autumn, but you know. Same diffs. Cold, dark, wanting to eat too much. That sort of thing. So, le list: Sitting on the couch, knitting & watching Poh’s Kitchen. I am really keen to try [...]
