Writing a seminar paper on Augustine's thought on evil.

Smelling banana and choc chip muffins that I just took out of the oven.

Reading The Goldfinch and loving it. I picked it as a prize winner to read this year (#1 on the list)

Hoping The Little Girl will finally make it to swimming training this week after being out of action for 3 weeks with sinus issues. The bag is packed at the back door and I will find out if it's a go when I pick her up from school.

Looking forward to the end of term ... but not happy that the kids holidays don't coincide, only overlaping for one week. 

Trying to avoid getting caught in today's intermittent showers.

2. Got lots of fresh herbs? Try this: Making herb paste.

3. Alexa has generously provided some photoshop templates for simple modern photo books.

4. With 3 kids I tend to have a lot of interruptions to my day with many of those interruptions a demand for my time and attention which can leave me feeling depleted. I find that reducing decisions can have a big effect on how I feel at the end of the day. Here's 7 ways to minimise decision fatigue.

5. Take the quiz to see which of the four tendencies you are. I came out as an upholder which is probably true.
