Coffee, Lasagne and the Bullet Journal

I skipped coffee last week, I’m sorry I was caught up in crazyness and wondering what it was all about.  One of those why am I doing this stuff kind of moments.  That and time, where does it all go?

This week I came across Ryder Carroll and his Bullet Journal Technique…..he has a TEDx talk on ‘How to lead an Intentional Life’

 

I love the quote: ‘You can’t make time, You can only take time’

I’m 3 days into using his framework and really trying to adopt some of the techniques to manage my time, to take the time to manage my brain.  Just google Bullet Journal and all will be revealed!

So today I’m taking time to share coffee…..good morning!  Thanks for popping by.  I’ve got a fuzzy head this morning, the coffee is strong to help break through the fug and give me a chance of making the most of a Sunday.   No Sympathy is requested, a self-inflicted one glass too many on the wine front and a nice little night cap of Whisky.

We had pals round for dinner, long standing friends that have followed my wife and I round all our various tables through the last 20 years or so.  Sometimes the same table different location.  Always good to see them and aside from the 5 minute blip with the kids getting too excited which resulted in me reading the riot act.  We had a great night.

We served up a Veggie Lasagne and a Cranachan Cheesecake (A Scottish twist on a baked cheesecake).  Home-made Lasagne is a real labour of love and I always under estimate how long it takes especially when I choose to make the pasta as well.   I can’t find a link to the cheesecake recipe….but the Lasagne recipe I based mine on can be found at chez Jamie Oliver’s.

I learnt a few things making this recipe and definitely a keeper…..but it definitely needs to be doctored to make it your own and the way it’s laid out really frustratingly for finding one’s feet as you try and find where you are.

Just written in my journal…… write up my version, see if I can make it simpler!

Thanks for joining me for coffee, thanks to Nerd in the Brain who hosts the Weekend Coffee Share and for relieving my writers block this morning by reminding me of my organisation discovery this week.

  1. I’ll be curious to hear how you like the bullet journal and how you adapt it for your own needs. I’ve read a bit about it, but I haven’t actually started doing it yet. Have a good week! And that lasagne looks wonderful.

    • Still in my early throws…really trying to get myself organised. I definitely don’t have the time to make it into a work of art that you often find on You Tube. I’m in the space that I need to follow through on the bullets. Thanks for popping by

  2. Anything Jamie Oliver is a winner in my book! Yours looks amazing!
    I’ve also been looking into bullet journaling… just have to find the time to read more about it! 😉
