So glad I called this post the simple life - ha haha haaaahhhaaaa rolls on floor laughing....since last posting I have managed to vacola some beetroot and it was AWESOME - even my 80 year old mum marvelled at how tasty and lovely it was ...mmmmm yum! This is quite the accolade I must say because she is the queen of vacola in our parts :) I have done some volunteering at the Goomeri Pumpkin Festival this last weekend and have finally become accredited as a Marriage Celebrant, so now can perform Weddings, Renewal of Vows, Anniversary Ceremonies and Commitment Ceremonies. Instead of the simple life, I have been very busy building websites (www.weddingsbyknight.com.au) and establishing my business in the local community.
So I am feeling tired and battle weary as are my plants and surrounds! Just a little over the world right now and children who hurt you so unwittingly but so deeply! They have no concept of the impact they have on your sense of wellbeing. I just wonder if the expectation of giving absolutely everything you have to them ever stops and there comes a balance with some reciprocity??? Anyway enough of the negative energy....I am back on task and tomorrow hoping I can plant out my broccoli and parsely at least and then concentrate on the sad little beetroot and silverbeet and cauliflower seedlings :)
I have more beetroot and pumpkin than I can poke a stick at after the festival on the weekend plus my son will bop me soon if I don't try the Vacola Plum Pudding idea ...so hang in there ...will let you know how I go :)
