|« Getting Ready for a Party (O non)||A wonderful visitor (O non Expl) »|
Let's start this blog with the monastery. I haven't decided to leave society and become a nun, but the great part about my grandfather coming to visit has been exploring Perth a little more. On Friday of last week we went to New Norcia - a monastic town - and the Swan Valley. Honestly, fantastic. It was amazing to think of people moving out there in the 1800s when there were no services and building a type of Spanish monastery in the Australian bush. They had an exhibilition of Christian art as well that was just fantastic - different artists, stories about the thinking behind the works as well as sculptures.
Funnily enough getting there turned out to be an adventure because, I think this is the explorer in me coming out, I'd forgotten the map, took a few wrong turns and ended up just heading in a general direction where I thought it should be. Luckily I managed to somehow get on the right road and we had a great drive. There were roadside stalls, some art galleries, wineries and cool little businesses. I'm hoping that hubby & I can go out there one day.
In food type news, I had been dabbling in the Genotype Diet but am now reverting completely back to the BTD. Doing Dr D's calculator about 50 times, I always come up as BTD, so now I just need to focus on that. It's back to low/no grains (how I will miss my pumpkin/millet bread with ghee and pure raspberry jam) and a focus on proteins/veggies. Somehow I don't think I should be trusted near millet or sugary fruits. I joked to my husband that I get addicted to watermelon the same way people are addicted to nicotine - I almost needed a patch to stop eating watermelon, millet and raspberries. Hopefully that will get my health back on track.
Once my grandfather goes home it's tax-time in Oz. The only bad thing about having a degree in Commerce, aside from the jokes people make about Accountants, is that I get the great job of sorting through hubby's version of a filing system so that I can complete his tax return! I'm thinking I'll cook a beef roast on the weekend so that there's some handy protein to snack on.
It sounds as if you're feeling better, which is great news. Tell me again, what BT is your DH? If I did roast beef there wouldn't be any left for me to snack on - my A DH would be caught red-handed in the fridge at midnight!
Take care! xx
