Up again at 8am after a great nights sleep … checked emails and then took Coco for a 75 minute walk.
And we do stride along … I can feel the muscles in my legs and bum working … that’s for sure.
Grey, cold and chilly today … Lock 5 was the same.
Decided not to bring my camera and just enjoy the walk.
Home to do some SKIL2 work by the fire … have designed the frontpage ‘look’ for the site … and sent it to Marc for his genius touch.
My design mantra for the SKIL2 learning space/site is … SIMPLE + FUNCTIONAL – like a deux chevaux.
Yummy and deeply healthy lunch … put the tuna bean mix I made yesterday into a wholemeal wrap … grated a wee bit of parmesan on it and then … baked it for 15 minutes. Put on top of a field of lettuce greens and sprouts sprinkled with herbs and some lime juice … yum.
Made one extra and brought it in to Dee.
Having fresh hamburger, mega vege & mustard and chive crushed potatoes for dinner.
Popped in next door to say hello to my lovely neighbour Therese Hamill. I made her up a big pot of bulbs so she can have colour and scent on these dreary weather days … we had a great chat and laughed away at things.
While I’ve been working Coco and I have enjoyed being by the fire … very very cosy and warm.
My friends Miriam and Jimmy were on an RTE program last Friday called ‘Nationwide’.
They run workshops for people wanting to build their own wind turbine and move to more sustainable and offgrid energy sources.
Over 400,000 people watched the show and they have been inundated with calls and emails … bloody brilliant I say.
They have just started another workshop in Ballinamore today and it is all sold out … they have started a waiting list.
They will also be running a week long course in Gort, Galway in September.
If you’re interested in their workshops and sustainable energy go check their site.
I think I’ll take a break and pop over for a quick cuppa with Mags.
Lynda and Derek are doing just fine in Athens Georgia … which I’m sure is a fine place … but it’s not Ballinamore folks. They are househunting and have found a couple that might be their new home … hope so.
I hear from another friend of theirs in Portland that they all may be meeting in New York in September. I just might pop over to say hi.
Hope your week has gone well.
A special hello to Trina … I see on Facebook that you’re back from New Zealand and working away in Dublin. I would love to catch up with you soon.
