It is interesting that our Simple Living Toowoomba group started up after Rhonda's visit to Toowoomba at the start of her first book tour after writing Down to Earth and her last tour ended in Toowoomba as well.
Rhonda's talk was packed out as all 80 tickets were taken and I think many more people would have liked to attend.
She spoke about the different chapters in her book which follows through the months of the year and gives tips on appropriate simple living goals to set for each month e.g. January is the month to plan for the coming year and December is a time to review the year, celebrate with our friends and family and think about what will change next year.
Then the talk was over and it was time to sign books.
Of course, Rhonda's willing helper, her hubby Hanno helped with setting everything up and selling the books. He is looking quite well after his recent illness which was great to see.
So now Rhonda will settle into retirement but we had a discussion about this after the talk and we think she will come out of retirement eventually. It would be difficult for such a gifted writer to retire completely....wouldn't it? What do you think? :-)
After a pleasant morning out it was back to work when I got home as it was time to dig up the turmeric. Now I just have to work out what I am going to do with it. I will watch Jeff Heriot's YouTube video about how he harvests his and also I noticed that Rob Bob has made a video as well. Both these men have wonderful gardens so check them out when you have time.
I hope everyone is having as nice a weekend as I am. It is certainly a lot warmer than last weekend when our east coast was being battered by wind and rain. I hope that anyone who sustained damage in the storms is coping alright and receiving help.
