Changing my thoughts

We are how we think. I’m ready to change how I think.RenewWhen I don’t feel like going for a walk, it’s time to change that thinking to being excited about going for a walk.

When I want to overeat, it’s time to change my thinking to other positive things that I want.

When I’m feeling sad, it’s time to change my emotions to gratitude for all the wonderful things I have in my life.

Wheat free bread

Mum and Dad gave us a bread maker for Christmas.  We are so excited about it.  Our wheat free bread costs us $7 a loaf from the health store – an expense we are looking forward to cutting down by making our own.

Yet, after several attempts, its turning out to be a lot harder to make gluten free bread than we thought.  And then, thanks to our baker friend, we realised the problem is the lack of gluten.  We are not gluten intolerant, just wheat intolerant.  And it is the gluten in bread that keeps it risen.   All the bread mixes out there that are wheat free are also gluten free.   Since realising this, I have looked for, but not been able to buy, just a wheat free bread mix.

It’s a pity I didn’t think to take pictures of the previous failed attempts.  You would have died laughing at the mishapen, sunken lumps of cooked dough that have come out of the bread maker!!!

We have TWO solutions though!

Learning how to make wheat free bread

Learning how to make wheat free bread

  1. I went to the local health store and bought a bag of gluten to add to the the gluten free mixes.
  2. And I also bought spelt flour, which has gluten in it and which is what our bought bread is made from.  We are going to try a spelt flour recipe as well and see how we go.

I’ll take a photo of our attempt and post it.  Fingers crossed!

Does anyone else out there make their own wheat free bread?  Do you use a bread maker?  Any suggestions????

The Individual Me

Hello to anyone still out there!!  And thank you for looking over here at this Word Press blog.

Why am I on Word Press you ask?  Well, I have taken on the responsibility of developing the website for the Flute Society of South Australia and the previous web designer placed it on Word Press.  And, as some time ago, I began a personal Word Press as an experiment, I figured I needed to absorb myself in this world and learn all the ins and outs.

I began a post on my beloved Blogger site and then thought of this.  So, I transferred it over and here I go on a new adventure.  I LOVE Blogger, and am heaving a big sigh at having to readjust over here at Word Press.  However, I am excited about developing the Flute Society’s website and am determined to learn all I can to make it a good site.

So, what’s been going on for me?  Life is so different for me now, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I don’t how all you women out there in relationships and with children do it! I begin a live-in relationship – just the two of us (and sundry animals)- and don’t get time for anything else!

One thing I am learning at the moment though, is the importance of still being the individual me. I can’t say I’m doing too well with that at the moment. But, as always, I’m still working on it!

  • The individual me is going to sort through all my nature shots and place them on the walls.
  • The individual me is going to stop carrying around so much baggage.
  • The individual me is going to begin, once again, taking photos of the world around her.
  • The individual me is going to experiment in the spare room with paint colours that will eventually go through the rest of the house.
  • The individual me has gotten back to going to Curves and walking regularly.
  • The individual me has blogged her first post in ages!
  • The individual me is continuing to develop and work on her own individual life

Welcome to my new blog!

It is time for me to try something new and begin to broaden my blogging education!

This is the very early result of that new journey!

It is definately in the early stages. I have a long way to go to achieve my vision of what I want my blog be and to look like. But it’s a start! I hope that I can eventually understand all that is confusing me at the moment.

I’d like to thank Krista for inspiring me to make this move. Her blog motivated me to want to expand mine and her willingness to help me through emails is wonderful. Thank you Krista!
