Strawberry and mango smoothie

food, healthy, in the blender, smoothie

Here I am again with a yummy snack , a snack you can drink and eat at the same time. Depends on how thick you want it. With the use of lactose free milk 🥛. With the help of my hand blender I created something delicious.

With frozen strawberries and mango , defrosted a little bit , and lactose free milk I made a super yummy smoothie . Once poured into a glass , I put sultana bran, fresh strawberries and a drizzle of honey. For someone who doesn’t eat breakfast, this was good to have in the morning.

The darkness

personal

Im at that stage in life where I find sitting in the dark peaceful. Allowing my self to practice mindfulness, the running of the engine is off. The lights are off , here I sit with the stairs and the sugar cane . Away from the mess of mine room, away from drama and away from other people. Sipping on My ice coffee, inhaling that tobacco and listening to sad tunes.

I love my job but sometimes it can be very challenging for me. I haven’t been able to have a quiet time to myself for a while, not only is brain cluttered but so is my room. I go from having a stressful day , phone calls with the boss to back home when my grandfather is in my face stressing about the neglect I have done to myself. So here I sit in the darkness on a job site and hr before shift meditating. Trying to bring myself back to earth. Grounding.

This week my best friend lost her cat, and im so sad about that. That cat mesmt alot to me too. I’ve cried like four times. My uncles dad died and I have his funeral tomorrow 😢 I remember when I was younger my mum would take me to his farm for lunch he was a good bloke and has raised a wonderful son. As for the cat name lulu I had to break the news to my neice as it was to hard for her mum.

I’m so thankful for the ppl I work with checking in on me cause without their support I’d be under my doonah pretending I don’t exist.

800 tonnes!

construction

An 800 tonne crane starred at the Auchenflower train station in Queensland a couple of weeks ago. The performance was exceptional that member of the public even came to view the show it put on. Out with old walkway bridge , that was frequently used for trainstation users, including those who were just out for walk.

This 800 tonne crane is the second biggest in the southern hemisphere, with counter weights weighing 470 tonne.

Gotta love working in construction sites !

Inner child is calling

journal, mental health

The edge of being happy for so long yet super stress has led me to the edge of oh feck it’s happening again. Sadness , is lurking I can feel it internally. The feeling I get before , I break down. I’ve been neglecting my own inner child, as I physically fill her with sugar and smoke her out with cigarettes. As I send her broke by spending countless of money thinking I’m rewarding to spoil her, in reality I’m keeping my inner child quiet, ignoring her cries for help from all this stress. Compressing it into a box once again, hoping I never have to deal with it. Unfortunately, it’s an on going cycle , a cycle in which I’ve used to survive. Yet, some choices have led me to this edge before I breakdown.
A cry is good , sleep is needed and so is self love for that inner child of mine. She’s calling for help, hoping I’d listen … only time will tell .
Every sunset is different, as tomorrow is a different day . Hopefully, tomorrow I wake up feeling refreshed and all this worry from stress is relieved, so my inner child can be at ease.

Field Of Happiness

adventure., beauty, botany, garden, nature
When a sunflower has character , wearing his little hat and the hands as leaves. Way too cute.

Last week my friends and I came across a field of happiness. One of my friends confidently asked the farmer if we could take photos in his field. He kindly let us. Most of the flowers were facing the sun looking away from us, and some looked like characters with hats. Absolutely gorgeous!

Bees with love didn’t mind us being there. Covered in pollen they continued working as we took photos. “Be kind to the bees and they are kind to you,”, I always like to say.
The last three sunflower images were taken on my Canon 1100D camera.

Did I bring something home?

adventure., Spirit World, urban exploring, urbex

If you don’t know or haven’t read my journals before I have a gift, a gift of being connected to the spirit world. I have done much with this gift but I’m able to feel presence, see them at times and have been touched. They don’t scare me , but when I’m exploring abandoned buildings I usually get ones telling me to leave, in that case I do. However the recent explore I did was different…

In the image above , was a bathroom I where I stood at the entrance, I could feel something in thus bathroom, I stood there for a bit, after taking this photo I walked away but the presence wanted me to come back. I went back, I felt like it wanted my company, no idea why… I could hear my friends calling out to me, I told them where I was. They were ready to go… yet something did not want me to leave…

After the house we went here, my friends went one direction and I went the other, I don’t usually leave the squad but this time was different, I didn’t feel alone and I realised that when I felt something gently touch my hand . I stopped in my tracks and looked at my hand , haven’t been touched by a spirit since I was 13 . I was okay though.

That night when I got home, I was sitting in the toilet, the light turned on and off by it self. I thought great I’ve brought something home with me and it wasn’t my intentions.

It’s now the 1st January, 6 30 am, laying in my bed and the smoke alarm goes off, so I get out of bed walk to the kitchen and it stops,… then 640 am it goes off again and back to the kitchen I go , no smoke again, I put my hands over my face and whisper stop.. 2 seconds later it stops.

What the eff did I bring home, it wanted my company and now its doing weird shit around my house.

Caloundra locals infuriated about the old Post Office

adventure., journal, urbex

Caloundra locals are disgusted about the recent changes of the old historical post office, wishing it had been kept as a historical building rather then very much destroyed by the over use of orange paint for marketing purposes.

This orange building is now use to capture tourists attention leading then to qr coded stickers around the building, once scanned tourist get to a site advertising the infrastructure of new holiday apartments which is intended to be built on this site.

Without a care the painters covered this building including the plants in orange, what a strange way to advertise, but if it works it works.

I will be continuing to follow the growth of this site, curious to see how long this mess will be stationed here until the new site gets built. There are still so many unanswered questions, as the post office local claim to have been here doesn’t look like the building in the image. My guess would be that something else was built here after the old post office.

Plant growth update

botany, garden, nature, plants
Started another avocado plant as I am in love with the one I started last year, and this little guy is rooting. It’s a slow process when you germinate it this way ,but I love doing. I had another new one but I gave it to a friend who wanted a challenge involving patience. With these little guys you need that!
“GROOT” … I started Groot about October 2020 and he is finally growing a branch. This is so exciting.
I decided to put my Monstera in a hanging pot in the bush house and she loves being out there. We have alot new growth, look at those baby leaves.
I took a clipping from my Monstera a couple of months ago and we finally have some roots. Will leave this one in water for a few more weeks and then will give her a pot.
The snake plants I propagated a while back have been quite successful and have some babies growing, so I have placed it in a bigger pot then what it was in for more room. This will look gorgeous when it full.
Started propagating some more but these will be going to a friend.
