Life Update

School is taking over my life, which I kinda hate (a lot). I just want to be done with it already, but I have awhile to go until I'm certified over here. Our friends from the States came to visit and we took them on a little hike to a place about 90 minutes from the apartment called Hanging Rock.

While there I managed to catch an in-flight picture of the lovely Rosella

I know, I know you're impressed with my photography skills. Try not to be too jealous . . . haha.

In other bird news, the Aussie saved a bird that knocked himself out on the window at the in-laws. My MIL likes her house clean, really clean. It seems to be a hazard for birds.

On the decorating front, I hung my first painting. And I do mean *I* because I was the one that was able to get the wire to sit on the screw. Okay, perhaps the Aussie deserves a bit of credit because he did put in the screw.

The painting was done by the Aussie's great-uncle and bought as a wedding gift from the in-laws. LOVE IT!

In eats, we've been devouring tempeh sammies ever since we found this recipe


Back to the grind,

**Eyes shutting**

It's 9pm on this end but my eyes feel like it's 3am. I plan to be asleep within the hour for an early, killer session of bodypump. I am still painfully sore from Monday's session, so let's hope I can walk after tomorrow.

The work people loved Katie's chickpea blondies, which was good, and also the cookies. Yippy for healthy, sneaky food

My highlights for the day including feasting on sourdough bread w. pumpkin and sweet potato soup and staring at my lovely flowers from the Aussie :)

The flowers went from this . . .

To this . . .

Bed is calling,

Whoah Two Days In Row

Who am I? Posting two days in a row is not the usual now-a-days, but after I ran home (okay, trammed home more like it) to do my lectures, I found out that none are up until tomorrow.

I'm not sure if work is ready for Choc Covered Katie's blondies made from this . . .

So I made another dish of Choc Covered Katie's, her healthy oat flour choc chip cookies. So good I got a bellyache from too many spoonfuls.

Let's hope the work peeps like them (if they make it out of the house). In other news, the alarm went off at 5:40am today and we actually got up. I felt great all day. It's amazing how the gym gives you the happies :)

Off to my heated bed (my MIL rocks for getting us a heated blanket),
