today i'm loving
These beautiful Autumn days that bring so much joy, colour and comfort.
Time to think about our food and menu plan. Today using left over bbq lamb from yesterday that was still pink in the middle for one of my favourite lamb curries. Indian food is one of my passions. I adore mixing the spices, grinding them and exploring the different spices from different regions. Recently I discovered that each region has its own blend of garam masala. We have introduced spice into our little man's meals since early on. A pinch of cumin, coriander, nutmeg and now he really loves a bit of zing. I did accidentally once put sweet chilli sauce on his sausages instead of tomato sauce from a bottle. The faced he pulled was pretty impressive. I have been to India twice. Once on my own and then again for a wedding. A truly amazing place.
Trying to feel more graceful and gain some ease of movement by doing a daily practice of yoga and meditation. Many years ago I had an altercation with a train. Its a long story but I feel asleep whilst driving, my car leapt off the road onto the railway tracks in front of a train. Remarkably I only sustained a broken nose and a whiplash type injury to my neck. Neck pain is now an constant irritation. With the sleep deprivation and breastfeeding the tension has been increasing. Now I haven't been able to sleep because of this ache. I have been making some time before going to bed to do some simple asanas and a few moments sitting on the meditation cushion, having a big sigh and feeling the emotional release.
A lovely package arrived today with a courier. Thank you so much Posie.
Hope you have a lovely week and once again thank you for stopping by..
