Monday night is stir-fry night

You'd think after many weeks of the same Monday meal I'd have thought to take a photo.
But no ....
Do you have certain days that are assigned a particular evening meal?  I never thought I would do this but it's become apparent that Monday night in our house is stir-fry night.  More specifically it's stir-fry-sauce-from-a-jar night. Ok, ok, let's just call it Kantong night and be done with it.

Day 1790 - Hello Spring

Welcome Spring!

I have just a handful of words today: new, fresh, blooming, growth and possibility.

Day 1789 - ACT State Cheerleading Championships

It's a cheerific kind of day

It was an early start today with Good Shepherd cheerleading competing at the ACT State Cheerleading Championships at the Australian Institute of Sport.  This is our BIGGEST comp in the ACT and quite a daunting experience for our youngest cheerleaders.  They performed beautifully and we can now say that we are State Champions (again).  Three firsts, some seconds, thirds and fourths.  I honestly can't remember the results exactly, but I can remember their spirit and it was AWESOME as always.  Goooooo Good Shepherd! Woot.

Now can someone please find me a glass of champagne ...

Day 1788 - Birthday Cakes

Saturday is cake day. 

Tahlia's been at it again.  She's baked up a storm this week for two birthdays - her rugby playing boyfriend and her "it's almost spring" sister.  Nice work Tahlia Jane.

Day 1787 - Deep Fried Brain

Today I have a Deep Fried brain

I can't believe I googled Deep Fried Brain and got a result. This is a deep fried pork brain.  YUK!  But to be honest, it's kind of how I'm feeling right now so if the pic fits ... then let's roll with it.

Day 1786 - The Fringe

It's time for a Deep Fried haircut

I decided to be daring.  It took a lot of courage! But I did it. I finally caught up with the fashion. I went the fringe.  Better late than never ... What do you think?

Beautiful table decorations with so much to see, touch and taste

Day 1784 - Positive Energy Activator

Start each day in a positive way

Ever heard of a Positive Energy Activator?

It's when you do something positive for someone else right at the start of the day which not only turns on your own "happiness chemicals" but creates a positive energy flow.

Day 1783 - Cold remedy

Got an end of winter lurgy?

Apparently you can treat a common cold without the need for a trip to the chemist.  According to the book "Natural Remedies" by Mim Beim, you can treat a cold as follows: In a teapot combine the juice of one lemon; add half the lemon rind chopped up; half a stick of cinnamon; a handful of fresh thyme chopped; 3cm of fresh ginger root thinly sliced; and a dollop of honey.  Add boiling water and stand for 5 minutes. Drink 2-3 cups daily.

I have been lucky enough to avoid the winter lurgy this year, so I haven't had a chance to try this remedy.  But I'll be sure to keep it up my sleeve for next time!

Day 1782 - Tahlia Jane

A quick pic

I spent the day chaperoning Tahlia at a fashion event where she walked the runway for Gwynnie's Emporium, as well as Rockstars and Royalty.  This is just a teaser. The rest of the pics will be shown on Wordless Wednesday.
