A few things

A few things that both pleased me and didn’t create any waste


Plastic Free July is kicking off soon. I’ll be on the panel at this event on 2 July if you’d like to say hello, or just catch The Clean Bin Project. Watching this film always makes me homesick for Vancouver. There are lots of other local activities listed here too.

Throwing back to the long weekend in May when we went against our normal instincts and headed north to the central coast. We were rewarded with perfect surf, 24 degree water temps and dolphins galore.

My shoes always wear out on the outer edges of the heels. $30 fixes my shoes, but not my gait.

I love sprouts, but hate the plastic packaging. With persistence, I’ve finally gotten the hang of sprouting at home. Perfect for Ottelenghi inspired salads.

The plums were a rescue from the work fridge. The eggplant is ‘ugly’ according to the supermarket I bought it from, and I foraged the passionfruit. Gleefully if you must know.

I finally visited Pocket City Farms in Camperdown. I went to collect my crowdfunding reward and check out the Crop Swap Sydney event. I didn’t have anything from my garden to swap, but still somehow left with armfuls of goodies from this generous group.

 

 

A few things

Life, lately.


Cuteness:  This past week was tough. These paws were a much needed distraction.

Ocean swimming: Temps near 30 mean it’s back to the big saltwater pool down the street. And by pool, I mean the ocean. And by swimming, I mean floating.

Pollinators: So many butterflies lately! It’s pollinator week in Australia from November 20th – 27th. We owe these animals more than a week’s consideration. If you want to get them a gift, they do love flowers.
