It's apple season. This means that it's time for my trusty Ezipeeler to be out making piles of curly apple. This week I got 8kg of organic juicing apples from our food co-op.
“Spring, Spring, Spring!” sang the frog. “Spring!” said the groundhog.
“Spring, Spring, Spring!” sang the robin. It was Spring. The leaves burst out. The flowers burst out. And robins burst out of their eggs. It was Spring.
I have a secret supply of lemons from a sunny town where the lemons grow like crazy. And sometimes when I'm lucky I get a shopping bag or two full of them dropped off by my brother in law.
So when lemons come by the bag full, I juice them! But there's more to juicing lemons than meets the eye.
Last week I took the plunge and made an investment in a new food processor. Now I won't hide the fact that it was far from the cheapest around but what I can say is that there is no substitute for quality.
Its been nearly a couple of months now since Old Blue Mundo headed south in a couple of big boxes to its new home. Old Mundo served me well. It showed me the wonders of cargo biking. I carted kids, friends and the whole family. Groceries, kids bikes and swimming gear. I even got to go on a child free date with my husband.
As cheesy as it sounds, it changed my life, and potentially my kids lives. They know that if we're going somewhere then it's normally by bike. They ask for Mundo and take pleasure in finding their helmets (be it at 7am before everyone else is out of bed) or climbing on themselves. And for me, what fun it is. How versatile, and practical it is. It's how I get around. And is my first choice for short to medium length trips.
A few months ago I finally finished a project of mine. Well, actually it was a few projects that got finished. Firstly our shed got spouting. That was a few years in the making. But the thing that fuelled it all was wanting to install a water tank and hand pump for the garden and play.
