Waste Not Want Not

Well I have had a busy few days both enjoying the Sun, and gathering in some of the harvest and  freezing  some of it. First was the Peas,Freezing Peas to date we have frozen around 16 pounds in weight. Our peas are frozen straight to the freezer into bags once you have made sure they are clean and no grubs.. But all good protein Winking smile 

Next was the Broccoli which have grown huge this year Broccoliand I had come across a recipe for making Broccoli soup out of the stalks. So I thought I would give it a go..

The Full recipe you can find Here on my Recipe pages. With full instructions and photos stages in the making. Its delicious!

I don’t know about you but we put our veggie raw scraps and fruit into the compost bin, along with egg shells and salad waste, This is making a lovely compost which we will use next year dug into our Runner Bean row.

Kidney BeansHere are just a few of the many beans yet to come from our Kidney Runner Beans, Last year we blanched them before freezing.. But this year after seeing many more good results from freezing straight to freezer after washing and slicing, we have started to freeze on an open tray in freezer, once frozen then bag up, as they then don’t stKombucha Teaick together.

A drink that my hubby and I have with our meals is homemade Kombucha Tea  Its  so refreshing chilled especially during our exceptional hot Summer, and its good for you too.  My daughter bought me a starter kit in March of this year as part of a Mother’s Day gift. This tea is not only deliciously sparkly when brewed but has so many good health benefits, it is brewed using a scoby culture which you can find out more about Here, These cultures regenerate and multiply so now I have got quite a production line going as from my one jar I now have 4 jars on the go. So there is always a bottle ready for drinking in the fridge.

And between all of the Cooking, I have read another wonderful book by Paulo Coelho called Aleph Aleph Book Cover Click the Book to find out about it…  This book literally fell at my feet in a Pound store where I was browsing on holiday at the books  section a few weeks back, as two books fell from the shelves… A sign! you bet!.. I bought them both.

 Smile I always try to see the Signs the Universe throws my way. Smile 

Ok right Back to making the most of this afternoons Sun.. And I am gradually working my way around you all…. So if I’ve not caught up with you yet I will See you soon! 

Love and Blessings

State of Mind, State of Well-Being!.

For those that know me, they will understand that within me I’ve always said I feel like I have a Mission to fulfil. And yet if anyone of you were to ask me what that ‘Mission’ was I would still be unable to tell you, except to say I want to help and make a Difference in this world..

Sometimes it takes us the better part of a lifetime to discover our life’s work, even though we may have been doing it our whole lives without necessarily realizing it.

I remembered one of my Aunts who died many years ago now always calling me the ‘Little Mother’ as I looked after my siblings, one brother and 3 sisters. Being the Eldest I always thought I had to look out for them.. My middle sister still says I’m her Big sister, Mum and best friend all rolled into one.. As we both suffered lack of motherly affection at various times in our lives.. She will often remind me of the games I would invent and stories I would make up at bedtime. And says very often how much she loves me.. Some of those things I remember, but many I have forgotten as Life takes us upon our different journeys. I am always grateful for the pathway I have travelled, even though at times it had its twists and dark corners in which Ive had to climb over hurdles and obstacles just like everyone else upon this learning curve called Life.

Our life’s work is not always what we do to make money, although we often think it should be, and sometimes this way of thinking prevents us from seeing clearly what it is. It may be the work of having children, caring for them, and running a household. The way we know our life’s work is by how we feel when we are doing it.
When we are doing our life’s work, we feel an uncanny sense of ease and alignment. This doesn’t mean that the work is always easy, and it doesn’t mean that it’ the only work we have to do; it just means that there is a conviction deep inside us that tells us we are in tune with our innermost self. When we are engaged in our life’s work, our bodies feel more alive, because our energy is devoted to a cause that, in turn, feeds us. We may be tired after engaging in our life’s work, but we are almost never depleted. We feel grounded in the world, knowing that we belong here and have something important to offer.

I never felt better than when I changed my own life’s path to that of caring and supporting of others, even though my sister says that’s exactly what I always did. I never saw that I was doing anything special..
We can all get deeply unhappy, depressed, or subject to one illness after another, this may be due to a sense of disconnection from our life’s work. I know from my own perspective it took a nervous breakdown and long illness for me to eventually change my Career path, and once I made that transition and I dug myself out of the hole of negativity that I had dropped into it became a time of great inner healing.

Most of us remember a time when we felt fully engaged in some act of work, service or creativity, that made us feel good. And it is here that we may rediscover the work we are meant to do now. Since being out of work for well over a month while I waited for my new employment to start, although I was resting I became very lethargic, and tired, my bones and muscles began to ache again.. And I was worried that another flare up of FMS was going to start. But since having purpose back into my step the aches have subsided again..

A friend of mine who still hasn’t found the job she requires has quickly gone into a state of feeling low and depressed.. It reminded me that our state of mind helps to keep our bodies healthy too.. We can all too often fall into that trap of feeling worthless and rejected when unemployed and find the downward spiral of depression setting in.

If you should ever find yourself in this situation there are always I find many who are much worse off than ourselves and it may be time to explore what inspires us through volunteering, taking a class, going back to school, or just doing whatever it is we long to try. We all have callings, and when we find them, we owe it to ourselves to nurture and protect them, because while they may or may not be our livelihood, they are the keys to our wellbeing.

We are what we Think!… So I wish all my friends a Happy Weekend.. with Happy Thoughts and Good Health…

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
