Choose life. Life is wonderful.

It was a lovely weekend with lovely sunny days. I took this picture on Saturday morning out of my lounge-room window, beautifully cleaned to sparkling by P:-).

Sadly this is not my yard. It belongs to my next door neighbour. Daughter R bought me the blown glass decoration several years ago for Mothers' Day.

P:-) and I spent Saturday afternoon visiting the house of his daughter M and son-in-law B. It is about 20 minutes away from Wollongong - half way up the expressway towards Sydney.

M and B's house is a coal miners cottage in Helensburgh. It is about 100 years old.
It is a cute little cottage, which M and B virtually gutted before starting renovations.

They are gradually replacing the walls and the floors. 

There is a big backyard which needs a lot of work but M and B have great plans for it. Part of it will be taken up with house extensions. In the centre of the yard is a tree covered in blossoms which we are guessing is peach, but it will be interesting to see which fruit eventuates.

On the way home P:-) and I bought lattes and sipped them in Helensburgh Park as the sun set.

For dinner we had tuna bake. Unfortunately pasta is not part of the Primal Diet . Cauliflower made a great substitute. I cut the cauliflower into small pieces and blanched it before mixing it with the tuna and sauce and baking it in the oven. I think the key is not to over cook the cauliflower. I used a commercial sauce - Leggo's spinach and garlic tuna bake, which is very tasty, but plan to make it from scratch next time.

Finally, I have just read an article entitled  You Must Resist the Urge to Quit. I found it quite inspiring. Sometimes things just seem so overwhelming. This article gives 6 tips on what to do when you feel like giving up. Hopefully, you may never feel this way, but if you do this article may be worth reading.
