Summery winter days

Sunday, May 26, 2013

I wished all of winter could be like today or yesterday. It was absolutely breath takingly beautiful. The sky was as blue as only an Australian sky can be, sometimes it really feels like the sky here is bluer than in the rest of the world... anyways, and the sun shone as if it was it's last day to do so, which might really be the case, you never know in Albany. The forecast isn't very promising.
Yet we made the most of the day and rode our bikes to church. It is slow going with my almost 5 year old, an average speed of 11km/h, yet better than no exercise at all right??? After church I thought it'd be a shame to just ride home again... so in the spur of the moment we decided to ride our bikes to the beach and to our favourite fish and chips place. I know, not the heathiest option on a beautiful day like today... yet I have this strange thinking in my head... and I might be wrong.
Ok, so me thinks, I'm not on a diet, and you all agree with that. I don't want to feel deprived, cause once I feel deprived and sorry for myself I will blow it eventually. And now I cut out sugar... I don't feel deprived about it at all, still rather liberated, yet I want to still live like a "normal" person and have some special, even if not healthy, meals out of the normal routine occationally, and we really just like meeting up with my in-laws, and we all love fish 'n chips. I only eat the chips (okay, I should eat the fish, it at least has some healthy benefits in form of proteins)... it was just nice eating this unhealthy meal like a normal person. I didn't drink a soda. I did not eat dessert which the others did and I had 1 glass of juice.
The way home my in-laws took the kids in their car so hubby and I basically raced home... it felt like racing to me, he was just easy-going, hmpf.... don't you just hate it to be out done by someone all the time who doesn't even train or anything????

Riding though the beautiful countryside of Albany is just breath taking. Way too often I take things for granted and look at my surroundings without really seeing them, "yeah, that's just were I happen to live presently", yet is is so stunningly beautiful and riding along the coast today my heart overflew with thankfulness, that we can call this beautiful spot on earth our home, people come here to have a holiday.

And I still can't get over the fact that pelicans are just normal, normal to see them hanging around the marina, normal to see them flying over Albany.... it still puzzles me that them birds actually CAN fly and don't just drop down like a rock

    I love pelicans, but like you I wonder how they can get off the ground. I love watching them land, the way they skid along the water. Sounds like you had a lovely day.

    Sounds like a lovely day! And I have fish and chips every so often - when I have space for a 500 calorie dinner. I figure it isn't that bad, because I usually have half a filet, eat two or three chips, repeat. By the time I finish the fish, the chips have gone cold, and I really seriously HATE cold chips. So I limit my intake that way. (And yes, the fish is the better-for-you part of that meal.)

    Hmmmmm - maybe we'll do fish and chips for dinner. After I log in our posh High Tea for lunch.
