Icecream for Breakfast


Not as bad as it sounds. I've been pushing frozen bananas through my Champion juicer and it spits it out banana icecream Mr Whippy style.


I like to add maca powder and healthy sprinkles for crunch. Maca is purportedly a superfood and I like the way it takes the edge off the sweetness of the bananas. This would be an all 'raw' breakfast if it wasn't for those chocolate sprinkles.


Speaking of superfoods, I've been listening to David Wolfe in the car, and I got to meet him after a lecture once. Charlie was a growing in my belly in this photo.


I've never felt better than when I was a raw foodist. I want to get back there, but you're weird enough being a vegetarian out here.

The Weekend





Charlie gator strip

We headed off to Perth after the welcome new residents event at the pool on Friday night.

Every year, we have Shiraz Picking Day at Stakehill Estate Winery. We pick grapes and get paid in wine! It is great having a winery in the family. I love their Chilli Creme wine :)



We stopped to check out the Mr's old boarding house from high school on the way home. Beautiful grounds on the river but not a good experience for the Mr. Something we will have to think about in the future for Charlie.


We drove off out of the sunset.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

The Weekend


Poker night - I won, about to hop on to Book Depository and spend my winnings...

Tennis - Inter Club Day, I sat on the sidelines with my embroidery (I didn't get picked for  a team and one of us has to watch Charlie anyway). I love being older, I would have been too worried about looking uncool when I was younger, now I craft it up in public all the time...

Charlie - has a mosquito problem not an acne problem. I normally put Charlie's cutest photos on here for Grandma, but these goofy ones just make me laugh...


[arggh, bread stick!!]

A couple more shots of Charlie's strange hair...


And ducky face...

Happy days...

The Weekend

[cafe window heart]

[river realestate]

Oh my we had fun!!

It was great to stay with a friend who is in her own place again, have breakfast at a cafe with a heart shaped smudge on the window mullion, walk to the river gawking at insanely expensive real estate, celebrate one of us architecture graduates being in their own architecturally designed pad and be surprised on the way home with an iPad :) which I am writing this post on sitting on the front porch. It was also nice having the time for an extended chat with the Mr on the drive home. I love him.

The Mr is ready for another baby and now I am ready (iPad in hand) to carry that baby. I remember the first trimester and just not wanting to do anything but sit on the couch. Now I'll be able to sit outside and watch Charlie play while I keep up with my favorite blogs and Internet fun. I still love my MacBook but its no so portable anymore (it needs a new battery so has to be plugged in and it's also plugged in to an external harddrive for photo storage).

Just so many good things this weekend. I hope yours was good too.
