We chose the wood veneer floating floor-boards and it looks beautiful. So much nicer than the ratty old lino that was there before. I love walking on it – so smooth 🙂
The cupboards have been painted in an off-white colour called “scented wax”, and the handles are a simple brushed finish chrome.
Anyway. All this work in the kitchen has meant meals have had to be simple and quick. We’ve had take-away a few times, and other meals have been along the lines of this:
The eggs are from our chickens which have decided to start laying again. This is actually a favourite of both my husband and daughter. Hard boiled eggs with a fresh buttered roll. I don’t mind it, but I’m more inclined to mash up the egg and stuff it into the roll…
We also had quite a bit of fruit. The figs are from the garden and the peaches came from one of monty’s work colleagues.
Fresh fruit from the garden is such a treat. It really is totally different from most of the shop fruit you buy. The peaches were a real treat. The flavour was unbelievable. I am probably guilty of not being discerning enough in my shopping habits most of the time. If I managed to get to the Farmer’s Market at Wayville, or made an effort to source a really good, possibly organic source, we could enjoy these treats more often.
I am 100% committed to the idea and principles of organic and “slow-food”. I support producers when I can, it’s just not often enough. I am really am grateful, that at least I can make some organic and bio-dynamic choices in the supermarkets I go to (usually in a flying visit before or after work)
Life kind-of gets in the way doesn’t it? Busy, busy, busy 🙂
So, until I turn into superwoman, or they add another 6 hours to the day we are going to have to savour these moments as they come along 🙂
