It's 10H47 and I'm still in my pajamas. It's going to be much warmer today, up to 26 degrees Celsius. We started off at 10 so we're in for this big variances for a while. Just the weather to cause flu.
More pics of recent jewellery. I did it again, I made a bracelet for Carina, my sister in laws, daughter in law and promptly forgot to take a photo, AGAIN.
I've tested the balance of my chakra's with the help of the questionnaire in "The Magic of Crystals Colour and Chakra".
There is quite a large disparity between the chakras, with my heart, sacral and crown sacral chakras being overburdened. I'm now reading up on how to get some balance. I feel sure that the health tweaks I'm having, will improve if I have more internal balance. Going to give it a try, as the thought of going to the doctor, only to be sent for tests is not appealing. I know that the breakdown I suffered in July 2009, was related to mental stress over a long period of time. The aches and pains I'm suffering now, can't only be attributed to old age. I don't have balance due to all the changes we are undergoing.
The basins in both our bathrooms are cracked. The basin in the first bathroom finally gave in and a chunk fell out. Joce had the basin full of water at the time and was really confused when the water disappeared and she had a wet foot. We've bought a new aluminium basin but need to find a cabinet. We just don't seem to get the time to find one. Our microwave is packing up after more than twenty years of use, so Rich and I need to do some shopping soon.

I didn't have the required cheeses, so I used grated mature cheddar and mozzarella. It was still great.
Okay on with the day, it's now 11h38.
