Gluten-free bread

Sorry it has taken me longer than the expected time to get this recipe up but it is worth the wait I PROMISE!

I know that blue cheese is not everyone’s cup of tea BUT I love every type of cheese, especially  blue cheese…the smellier the better LOL 🙂 this bread was an experimentation that worked a treat! The hubby and my brother loved it too – SCORE!

  • 1 cup gluten-free oats (I used red mill)

Mercury turns retrograde on the 22nd of Jan, and so it would be wise to complete all negotiations about contracts and other legal issues before then.  Discussions within business partnerships and also in situations where you work with your spouse should also happen pre the 22nd as thereafter it will be harder to reach understandings and have constructive conversations.

Attention to detail is very important in January, you must look at fine print and be more pedantic about the finer points.  As they say, take care of the pennies, and the pounds look after themselves, that is the motto this month – make sure you know the details, and do not delegate out smaller jobs as the key or solution to a problem may lie in something small you have overlooked rather than something big.

Things within your domestic life will come to a head right now – anything you have not been handling from a leaky roof to a mother-in-law with a health issue will demand your attention.  You may have to do a simple reshuffling of priorities or perhaps even a more extensive rearranging of household affairs.  Repairs to your home or a family member who has to move in may mean changes not only domestically, but also financially.

Your energy will be somewhat lower at the end of the month – Leos do need the sun, and January in the Northern Hemisphere is tougher for you Leos than for most.  Make the most of any sun available and get out in it whenever you can.  If need be use a sun lamp and do take lots of Vitamin D and Vitamin C.

For Cancerians involved in teaching or nursing, your interaction with children will involve you taking more responsibility than usual, and you may have to step into a difficult situation.

This is a good month for a capital purchase or some long-term business investment in a new area.  Even if you run a small business, you may want to invest in either new skills or new equipment so that you can expand into a slightly different field.

Try not to get bogged down or preoccupied with unnecessary detail, you need to keep things flowing, and you may have to decide that certain elements must be glossed over so that the overall progress is not jeopardized.  Prioritizing can mean difficult decisions this month, and you will find these tricky to make – you must act swiftly and decisively and not look back.  Make your mind up and go with it.

Business organization is very much a talent of Cancer, and this month you can use that talent to reshape your own business or the company you work for.  It may take a while for your ideas to gain acceptance, but that should not put you off, you must be persistent and not afraid to voice your ideas.

A strict adherence to a principle or a rule may actually hold you back in your work – be more flexible and cast aside ways of doing things that do not hold up in the current situation.

Do be careful of emails and communications you send out within work and social media – remember once it’s out there you cannot ever erase it.

A very hectic and even chaotic start to the New Year.  Your first priority is to get your finances in order, or you could be in for a nasty surprise mid-month.  Do not put anything off, and make sure that anything contractual is tied up before the 22nd of Jan when Mercury turns retrograde.  This is not a month to mix friendship with money: do not borrow or lend to a friend as it will become very complicated and create stressful bother.

You may find that your friendship circle and the events that are part of that i.e. weddings, christenings, baby showers, parties, etc. are beyond your budget this month, and that may cause you a dilemma – remember that sometimes a small, personalized gift that did not cost much means more that some standardized item, even if it was expensive.

In January, you are feeling highly restless and you are looking to squeeze out of commitments that you feel take too much of your time and effort, and which give little back; you may have been roped into PTAs, a focus group, a treasurer position or something of that nature.  You are now ready to throw the towel in, and it is not about being a quitter, it is about streamlining your life and your routine and getting out of what is not essential.

QVC is the motto as you start this New Year, and I am not talking about the shopping channel – everything in your life must pass the QVC test, i.e. Quality, Value added and Contentment.  Make quality use of your time, be sure what you do adds value to your life and creates contentment.  If activities this month are stressful and confusing, drop them, don’t go there, it isn’t worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don’t read this too late or you’ll miss your bedtime by hours., January 5, 2015
This review is from: Next of Sin: A psychological thriller (Kindle Edition)
I was provided with a free copy of this book so I could give an honest review. When I started the book, I was thinking where is this going, maybe I picked the wrong book. After a few pages, ooh my! I couldn’t stop reading. After 3:30 in the night. I finished and I have to say, it is one of the better books I’ve read. The author is now on list of must read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Just when you think you’ve figured it…, December 21, 2014
This review is from: Next of Sin: A psychological thriller (Kindle Edition)
This is one of those stories where the author lets you know early on who the villain is, and that’s not a bad thing, because the story is more about discovery and burden of proof. The main character, Gabrielle, is forced into a position where she knows who the villain is, but also knows she can’t go to the police immediately because he’s a powerful and wealthy man, with an even more powerful father, leaving Gabrielle with the simple knowledge that if she didn’t present irrefutable proof to the authorities, the villain would easily weasel his way out of justice using his money and status. Another thing I enjoyed about this novel was the twists and turns, you feel like you’ve got the story down and suddenly the author makes a sharp turn and blam, the game is on all over again, I enjoyed that, it kept me guessing until the very end.

Although Gabrielle is clearly a flawed character, she discovers more about herself and what is really important in life as the story goes forward. Some of Gaby’s personality traits are a bit annoying, but I think they’re integral in portraying who she was at the beginning of the book versus who she is at the end. She’s imperfect on many levels, something I think we can all relate too to some degree…

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced and exciting…., January 6, 2015

This review is from: Next of Sin: A psychological thriller (Kindle Edition)
I was provided with a free copy of this book so I could give an honest review. I enjoyed the book immensely. It was fast paced and exciting with several unexpected twists and turns. As an American, I did have a little trouble with some of the colloquial references and some of the ideology of the pop culture in England. However, that did not impede my enjoyment of the story. If you like great characters with realistic dialogue, this is the book for you.
3.0 out of 5 stars Slow to start but finishes with a BANG!, January 16, 2015
Joyce Lazenby “Joy” (Kannapolis, NC United States) – See all my reviews
This review is from: Next of Sin: A psychological thriller (Kindle Edition)
I almost gave up but about a quarter of the way through it, the story started coming together. After that breakthrough, I could hardly put it down. The British colloquium was hard to follow but the book had sucked me in and I was determined to finish even if I didn’t quite understand what the phrases meant. Over all, a good book with lots of twists and turns the reader won’t foresee. I wish I could give it 3.5 stars but that option is not available. I was provided with a free copy of this book so I could give an honest review.

CAREER; A good time to re-organize spending and arrange cutbacks in your outgoings or that of your business.  A great month to prepare budgets and forecasts for your business as you are realistic but not overly pessimistic.  Try and bring down accumulated debt starting from this month.

A grounded attitude will help you in all dealings and financial matters; like I said in the opening paragraph, big decisions will be delayed until the end of the month.  You may feel that your hand is being forced in certain respects, but that may be a misconception, so do get good advice on important matters.

A fair amount of mixing business with pleasure and also socializing with business colleagues and clients.  It is a time for cooperation and improving the way you communicate and cooperate with your business contacts becomes central.

Whatever industry you are in, it is time to be more creative in the way you work and how you present your business to others.  A new marketing plan or advertising initiative can be very effective.  As the focus is value for money this month, you do not want to spend heavily on marketing, the idea is to use your creativity and imagination to make a little go a long way when it comes to publicity.  It may be a simple thing such as making your website look more attractive and accessible or a new set of business cards and a new logo.  Think of how you project yourself and how your image can improve.

Self-understanding through love and relationship dynamics is the end result.  In the beginning of this month, there is quite a bit of restlessness, and you will resent orders or limitations that your loved one seeks to impose on you.  Freedom of expression and the freedom to act on impulse is what you need right now to feel alive and respond to the challenges you face – however, your partner may find you erratic and confusing, and may even doubt your fidelity.

There needs to be more give and take from both of you and some compromises to create more balance for you both – you cannot expect more freedom and understanding for yourself yet fail to give it back in equal measure.

Sexual gratification is very important this month, and so you need to iron out the domestic issues between you and your partner so that a wonderful potential for great sex is not lost.  You want to be loved up in a magic bubble not sulking at opposite sides of the bed.  Don’t let small issues and arrogance drive a wedge between you this month – be spontaneous about lovemaking and let her/him feel your passion.

For single Arians, a hint of vulnerability hides a real animal this month – new relationships that are deeply spiritual and involving can develop quite quickly.  Love liaisons this month will really help you get in touch with who you are, and even if they don’t last, you will remain friends.
