Recipe – Nurture Thursday

I am going to get a little lame here…

2 Tablespoons of humanity

2 Tablespoons of Listening

1 Tablespoon of understanding

1 Tablespoon of Compassion

1 Tablespoon of Self-Love (it’s alright if it spills a little bit more every now and then).

Break for one day

Roll yourself back together…Remember to not spread yourself out too thinly.

  • Try on jackets and coats, get rid of ones that I haven’t worn in either years or ever.

I have done this one. It’s amazing how big coats and jackets are! They are not like tshirts and tops where you can fit a few in one bag to get rid of. You can put one or two coats into a bag only. There were a couple I “fit into” just can’t close them up anymore. Which is so sad! Of course they are my favourite coats as well.

  • Look into making my own candles and getting my own quotes on jars. (I was initially inspired by this after thinking about putting Magical Monday on a candle jar for myself. Then I thought why not look more into this?)

I have actually found a couple of sites which look great! It’s been completely fascinating and I have been getting even more ideas!

http://www.labelprintingco.com.au/candle-label-printing.html – There is a pop up conservation window, where they’ll ask if you want any help.

  • Try to create candles with certain fragrances as well…Try to research into what a “motivating” fragrance might be, for example.

This has been a bit harder just because you can’t really “smell” things over the computer. So when I’ve been going into stores, I’ve been trying to see if I can smell them. I actually found a few soaps and I liked their smells,lol. So I’ll have to see if I can create those smell…Watch this space for more!lol

  • Finish up writing the review for “Lord of Shadows”.

I did that too…And you can read it here.

  • Look into healthy Winter recipes.

There are a LOT of soup recipes for Winter. Soups and Stews…When I was little, I used to call Stews…Spew,lol…I have discovered lots of different lasagnes and yummy pies too! I can’t wait to make some of them! I might even post them on here…Don’t you feel lucky? =D

What was the last URL that you bookmarked or saved?

https://therecipecritic.com/2016/07/easy-sparkling-blueberry-lemonade/ … I am excited to actually make this, but I probably wont make it just yet. It’s Winter here at the moment, so I tend to try warmer drink recipes during Winters and then cooler drinks during the Summer. It sounds really easy to make as well.

Do you believe in the afterlife?  Reincarnation?

I do think there is an after life, not so sure about Reincarnation. My Gran believes that and I guess in some ways I do. For example, sometimes when you see a new born baby and you think it already looks so wise, they must have been here before.

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?

I do like to write mainly for myself and I’ve written a bit of everything. At the moment I have been working on a fantasy type novel of a game that I used to play years ago. In the past though I have written a lot of “episode ideas” for tv shows. There was a online role-playing game I used to play years ago. For a while there I used to write episode ideas based on the characters my friends and I were playing. It was very X-Men Evolution type theme. Except instead of mutants, we had teenage elves and sorceress and half animal, half human type characters.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Story – Someone made a really good point about Facebook and I had never thought about it before. I find it easy to stay off of Facebook these days mainly because of the negativity on there. The “so called” and self appointed ‘silent majority’. You know the types, horrible, racist bigoted people. Who for some reason think that first of all, they’ve been silent and that they are the majority. There was a post on Facebook and of course the “silent majority” were being very vocal, as they usually are.

Someone pointed out, even though these horrible people were being horrible and VERY vocal. This one lady pointed that if you actually look at where the “Like” button is. There was something like 500 hearts, 300 likes and only 25 angry faces. Which means that MOST people reading the article could see the positive, could see the kindness, could see the good in what was happening. The so called “SILENT majority” were NOT a majority at all, and in most cases never are. They are just very loud, so to themselves they think they are the majority, but in actual fact, are not.

That really did make me think and made me happy. When I went back and had a look at a lot of things on Facebook, the majority of people ARE positive, they are just not very loud about it. Probably because they are happy in their lives and don’t really feel a need to make something it isn’t. Unless (hopefully) it is really important…Even if it’s just important too them.

Happy Hot Cross Bun Day and long weekend to some

Just a quick little message, in the past I usually write a whole blog post about hot cross bun day and all the different religions and tradition behind it. This year though, I just wanted to keep it light. I’m going to keep it light by asking:

What is your favourite Hot Cross Bun flavour? Is it (I can’t find polls!)

Plain

Sultana/Currant

Fruit/Fruit Peel

Chocolate Chip

Other…

Please discuss in the comments!

Find some yummy recipes to make your own hot cross buns at Taste.com (Also if anyone could tell me where I can find polls, that would be great!)

Christmas in July…Kinda

A few years ago, I was just a student and was not making much money, pretty much nothing. I was on, I think America and Europe call it Welfare. However, one of the bad thing about being on Welfare, I wasn’t always able to give the best Christmas presents.

Until one year, I came up with a solution and I’ve used it ever since, even now that I work. From the beginning of June, I put away an round amount every fortnight. So if my bank account had 232.57, I would put 32.57 dollars into my savings account, the day before I got “paid” my welfare.

Then from the end of July, I start to get little bits and pieces. I usually get three presents for my Mum, Dad and Brother…and if I’m dating someone I do the same thing. Two presents are usually something a little smaller and then one “big” one. One top of that, until last year I used to get a present for my very best friends and my mothers side have a ‘secret Santa’.

What do you do, are you a Christmas Eve shopper, do you plan ahead? How many of you write Christmas cards?
