Music and my eulogy

Hi Everyone,

I’ve never really shared my brothers blog. Actually not completely true. If you scroll through my blog and see who I follow? It’s there. So, I suppose you could say I’ve never said it was my brothers blog!!

Yet, here I am re posting it. His mind never ceases to amaze me and his blog is way more thought provoking than mine!! 🙂

He made me think of how important music is to my world too. Music can heal many things and has a way of bringing us all together, in one way or another.

If you get the time? check his blog and thoughts out. You will either love them or hate them. What his blog will always do, is make you think! Hence his blog title: Still thinking

Hope you all had a great New Year. Hugs Paula xxxx

Eating Alone…

IMG_20130830_162809_466

Okay, this whole single life thing isn’t that bad…  But there are a number of things to get used to. One of the big adjustments? The whole eating alone ordeal! Lol

Shopping for one person is a whole new experience for me. Yikes! I go to the supermarket and want to throw all this cool stuff in my trolley and then realise… Who’s going to eat it? Lol

I eat a high protein low carb diet. But days like today, my body craved the carbs and so I made a bowl of penne and just threw olive oil and salt on it. I know that sounds terribly bland but I kind of listen to what my body wants, and that’s what it asked for!

So, to avoid the whole over-spending on items I’m not going to eat, I have decided to do the majority of my shopping at the food markets. This way I’m only buying healthy food and not tempted by all the rubbish foods in the big supermarkets.

BTW: I love rubbish food but my hips don’t seem to agree! 🙂

Being 45 it’s not like when I was younger and can just throw whatever junk food down my mouth and still be thin. I actually have to work at staying slim. So not fair, this aging thing! 🙂

I still believe we can eat everything, as long as it’s in moderation.

Problem is, if you open up a bag of chips? Who’s going to stop at just a few?  Not I said the lady in the back row! Lol Or was it me who is typing this? Okay, it’s me! 🙂

The other bonus about not doing all the shopping in the big supermarkets is I will save a heap of money. You see I’m the person they pay millions of dollars to get into the psyches of our brains and make us think we need that sticky tape at the end of the checkout… Ohhhh and lets not forget the blu tack, egg rings, tongs, and any other junk thing they cleverly place within my line of vision!

I’m onto you Marketing companies. You’re attacking this Bipolar woman who  thinks she needs to buy everything! Or  just maybe it’s my weakened mind. Lol

One last thing. I’ve always like eating at the dining room table. Well, my table seats 8 people and when just 1 person sits there? You feel like a loner! Lol

Sakura sits in the chair opposite me and just waits till I’m finished and then she hops down. Actually the music keeps me company! Lol  So, I thought I might start eating in front of the T.V. It feels better, yet wrong at the same time!

The table can be just be used when I have guests for dinner. 🙂

So, any shopping tips or quick healthy recipes anyone wants to share? Remember cooking for 1. And in no shape or form am I a gourmet cook!
I’m an apprentice! LMAO 

Love and hugs to you all. Paula xxx
