JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

This and That

I have been trying very hard to lose a few kilos before our cruise next month so it's been all about healthy eating this week.  I made a delicious Chicken Noodle Soup for lunch yesterday and today I made a vegetarian lasagne.  Both were very delicious and healthy and the added bonus is that most of the ingredients came straight from our garden.
The vegetable garden just keeps on giving and I think this year has been the best we have ever grown.  This is what I picked this morning....



and this is what I turned them into.....

Tomato Sauce, Bok Choy & Silverbeet with Pesto, Roasted Zucchini, Eggplant Sweet Potato

And added all those ingredients to a dish to make a lasagne (this is halfway through the layering)


I received another anniversary present (2nd) from HSV in the mail today.  This time it is a gorgeous leather overnight bag.  How good is that!


I had an overnight stay in hospital last week to remove a very large ganglion from my right hand index finger.  I let it go too long and it took the surgeon almost an hour to remove it.  It had wrapped itself around the bone and had to be scrapped away.

It's still quite swollen but the swelling is not as uncomfortable as the ganglion had become

Philip is on his way to Townsville to bring his mother home for a few days.  She was admitted into Townsville hospital yesterday with pneumonia so we will give her some TLC and hopefully she will be well enough to go on her holiday to Western Australia at the end of the month.  She has also made the decision to leave Magnetic Island and move to Cairns.  The family are very happy that she is doing this.
