Onto the next stage - we have finally managed to have the new garage and office floor poured today (concrete), and hubby finished most of the front fence too! Now to actually build the garage and office, and attach a gate 😉! We're getting there... Not too much more, and we can start focusing on the house!
Tonight in Tokoroa we held a prayer vigil for Christchurch - but it wasn't a prayer vigil set up by the churches, it was a community one; and the community showed up. Hundreds and hundreds of people poured in and showered our local Muslim brothers and sisters with love, support and solidarity... It was a beautiful thing to watch and be a part of. The National Anthem was sung, a haka was done and the Muslim community showed up and prayed and sang with us; there were tears and hugs, laughter and prayers. I am so proud to be a kiwi, and so proud to be part of this community. #weareone #inthistogether #standingforchristchurch #youarenotalone #tearsforchristchurch #prayersforchristchurch
Tears and prayers for Christchurch... 40 families have lost a loved one today, but 4,000,000 of us mourn together. Once more Christchurch, you are not alone. #notalone #tearsforchristchurch #prayersforchristchurch
Having a wonderful weekend away with my Mum and a lovely friend... The perfect girls weekend - a great balance between sleeping, eating, resting, reading, talking and walking. Just what we all needed.
Massive Friday night in here... Everyone else is asleep in bed, and I am snuggled up on the couch watching and listening to a replay of @ruthsoukup webinar #frompassiontoprofit , this is the #ebaformula for growing your #blog or #onlinebusiness ... And I am feeling contented and pretty - thanks to @maoriboi886 for doing my hair tonight, I am loving this look (yes - that means you win 😜)!
It's been a very productive afternoon... Finished some chicken stock from the roast chicken yesterday, followed by making a huge crockpot of chicken noodle soup partially from the stock and leftover roast chicken (and all the old vegetables in the fridge). Then made a massive container of #glutenfreecereal for Luke for the week (yes, that is a 4.2L container, I yes he will finish it within the week)! Then I made him another batch of his favourite #glutenfree and #dairyfree #muffins (these and the cereal is a weekly minimum for me), these muffins are adapted from @lunchwithleah ! I then managed to make some chocolate and blueberry #blendermuffins - adapted from @healthyfoodguidenz , for the kids! I finished off making some #glutenfree and #dairyfree #damper to go with the soup for dinner! However it was much hotter today than I had anticipated, so Ashie and I had ham, tomato and grilled cheese on our damper instead... I wish every Sunday afternoon was this productive, but I will appreciate them as they come along!
Majestic Rainbow tonight...
Whangamata at 8am this morning...
