A Time for Reflection.

“Words do not express thoughts very well; every thing immediately becomes a little different, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom of one man seems nonsense to another.”― Siddhartha Gautama One of the most memorable years in a long time...

Beef and Barley stew

Old man winter has come and settled over us finally. The days are short and my inspirational urges to write, even shorter. The only reasonable way to make it through these long winter months is to make soup and stew, and a lot of it. Beef and barley stew is usually a hit or miss... Continue Reading →

Banana Muffins For the Soul.

I've been stuck at home for the last few days and I tend to get antsy and anxious when this happens. I'm not an emotional eater... but I am an emotional cook and baker. Come to think of it, this is how this whole blog got started. Being stuck at home also has some other... Continue Reading →

And while it isn't considered as effective as an actual road run, there are some advantages to using one that I'm finding out. One advantage to using a treadmill is the ability to set a pace and maintain it without thinking... Continue Reading →

Fore! (NZD #8)

They finally opened a golf course here! And while it is very different from last year and the clubhouse is not open for après golf libations, it was still great to go out and take part in some kind of normalcy again.
