Sunday stuff  
My niece's birthday is tomorrow and to celebrate we went to a paleo cafe in Paddington for lunch. No gluten, no dairy, just really tasty food freshly-made. Most meals came with a side order of sweet potato chips with lemon aioli which is just delicious but to my regret I couldn't get through them all. Probably just as well, my waistline didn't need the extra.

Earlier this morning I was wandering around my back yard in bare feet, ostensibly looking for weeds but in truth just loving the feel of the lush grass underfoot. We've had a couple of weeks of regular rain and everything has suddenly sprouted. Lawn was mowed on Wednesday but it's already looking untidy again. I'm not complaining, though; up to a few weeks ago my lawn was dry and crumbly underfoot.

Just about finished my Christmas shopping too now. I have two more gifts to buy and the decision has been made so it's just a matter of actually getting to the shops in question. Every year I swear that I'm going to start early, and every year it's a last-minute scramble, so I'm pretty pleased that this year I had just about everything done by late November.

Sounds lush, all of it! I love your description of the grass under you feet, I can just feel it... *g* And ooh - I happen to have a couple of sweet potatoes hanging around... though I'll have to think about the dip! Happy weekend (you efficient Christmas-er, you)!

I love walking barefoot on grass, it's such a refreshing, invigorating feeling. Until you stand on a bindi that is. *g*

I prefer sweet potato chips to normal potato, with or without the dip.
