A day in the life: 3.11.11

It's been a while since I did a day in the life post, so here's what's been going down at Table Tonic HQ: The livestock: We got chickens! Initially, we got four (2 Rhode Island Reds and 2 Silkies)... Ever tried to photograph a chicken? OMG.

(above) From the top: Fluffy, Soup, Storm Cloud and Teebee (TBC)

...then we got another one (Isa Brown)... But she was getting picked on, so we got another one (Isa Brown)

(above) Pancake and Syrup

They really are such a delight to have pecking (and pooping!?) their way around the back yard all day. And the sweetest thing ever? They take themselves off to bed each night, once it gets dark. This would be the coop (it was already here when we moved in!) - complete with an old Juju Hat, which was unsellable, "to make them feel at home", thought Mr Tonic:

The dinner date: I had dinner with my high school BFF, Dani last week at High St. Bistro, beautiful little place in Willoughby (outstanding food, by the way). And lucky me, Dani brought along some of the beautiful bits and bobs she makes and sells through Dan300, her business/online store. This girl put the craft in "crafty", make sure you check her out sometime! (And yes, Anoushka loves her new hair goodies!)

The words of the day: Anoushka's words for when her shirt/skirt/socks don't feel quite right include "it feels all waffly" and "these socks feel prinkly". I'm still laughing...

The back door: You know those moments that just beg to be iPhone-d and subsequently blogged about? This was 5pm, Tuesday 1st November at our place - out the back door, to be exact. A perfect moment...

The kitchen gadget: Got kids? Heck, even if you don't - head over to ricecube.com.au, watch the very short video and prepare to be blown away. I was. And then buy a Rice Cube online here (they ship worldwide!). You can literally stuff anything into them. (And are you thinking what I'm thinking?) SQUARE POWER BALLS!!!!!!

The bookshelf: If you haven't already heard, Book Depository sell books online, super cheap (no one knows quite how they do it) and ship them worldwide for FREE. I recently bought six books (the five below, plus The China Study), all at once for some absurd amount. Delivery to Australia takes around 2 weeks for in stock items.

The juice: After enjoying green smoothies daily for a month or so now, I decided to embrace green juices (thank you slightly hot Dan, aka The Life Regenerator) and am loving them! A stack of organic leafy greens (kale/spinach/coriander/parsley etc), celery, cucumber, ginger, lemon and apple. 750ml or so in the morning (about half an hour after downing 750ml or so of alkaline water) - ridiculously nourishing and refreshing to boot. You could actually stick the same ingredients in a blender with a cup or two of water and you've got a (more filling) green smoothie!

Happy Thursday Tonic-ettes! Anything been floating your boat? Leave a comment!


  1. Hi! I've been following your website for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the great job!

  2. Greetings from Carolina! I'm bored at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the info you present here and can't wait to take a look when I get home.
    I'm shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I'm not even
    using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, fantastic blog!

  3. Thanks on your marvelous posting! I seriously enjoyed reading it,
    you are a great author.I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and may come back down
    the road. I want to encourage that you continue your great posts, have a
    nice weekend!

    Feel free to surf to my page optical science

  4. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
    could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
    or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your
    videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

  6. Hi! I was interested to know if setting up a blog such your own: http://www.
    blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=1178957263222092897&postID=3344303621151495734 is challenging to do for unskilled people?

    I've been hoping to develop my own website for a while now but have been turned off because I've always assumed it required tons of work.

    What do you think? Kudos

  7. Undeniably belieνe that whіch you
    stаtеd. Yοur favorite justifіcаtіon sеemed
    to bе on thе internet the sіmplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to yоu, I certаinly get аnnoyed while ρеoplе think about worrіes that they
    just do not know about. You managеԁ to hit thе nail upon the top as well aѕ defined out the whole thing ωithout having side еffeсt , people
    can tаke a ѕignal. Will likely be back to get moгe.

  8. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet
    effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you've done a fantastic
    job with this. In addition, the blog loads very
    fast for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
