Well it is day three of the New Year and already I find myself reaching for a cup of coffee. The good news is that I have cut down to just one sugar. Part of the problem is that it is very hot today and I have had a headache since last night. I just don't have the energy to do much at all.
The company that provides the energy for the generation of electricity had a problem with the gas supply to power their plant and asked for householders to turn off their airconditioners. As if that was going to happen. I said I would comply with their requests, if they led the way and turned off their AC's. It seems as most of Perth thought the same way and eventually the day was saved when they found an alternative energy source. Makes one wonder where they managed to find a heap of natural gas? Why do these companies think we have air coolers? Do they think that we will blindly turn them off because they cannot get their act together in the middle of a heatwave? Right now the temperature is 41.9C that is over 107F. My message to these people is to stop making the consumers the culprit. Luckily for us we live on a hospital grid and hardly ever suffer blackouts. That is reserved for the poor families living on the outskirts of the metropolitan area. Well they are not actually poor. It's just that they get their power turned off in a forty minutes rolling blackout.
Now to talk about food. I made a great smoothie for breakfast this morning. It consisted of 2 bananas frozen, the flesh of one small mango, half a cup of passionfruit juice, half a cup of soy milk and a handful of parsley. It was delicious and I am always amazed at the great job the vitamix does with the passionfruit seeds. The smoothie was not at all gritty.
Later I had a few grapes, an ounce of avocado and of course that darn coffee, which has now left a sour taste in my mouth.
Tomorrow it will be cooler and I will get my act together and eat sensibly. Oopps I said that yesterday too. Well at least I am in there trying.
