namaste (nah-mas-tay): My soul honors your soul.
I honor the place in you where the entire universe
resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace
within you, because it is also within me. In sharing
these things we are united, we are the same, we are
one. I mean it from the center of my universe.
in the 90's there has been a shift this week,
a noticeable change in the light, lower
humidity levels, the 'smell' that says
fall will arrive, if not today, then soon.
Needless to say, I've loved it.
I have spent hours outdoors in the
beauty and peace that surrounds me,
soaking it all in deep.
The books are ready, my lesson plans
are written, on-line classes have been
signed up for, and the pencils sharpened.
Tuesday Alex begins his Junior year
of high school, I am excited for both
of us, it's going to be a great year.
Daenarys surprised me and started laying
eggs. I thought the eggs would be the size
of quail eggs, tiny, but she is laying pullet
size eggs. She is such a big girl now.
I discovered an apple, just one, but it's
one I grew and the squirrels didn't take;
an apple that will be cut three ways so
we can all enjoy it's sweetness.
My kitchen creativity was a little bit of
a flop this week. I made quinoa patties,
replacing the carrot with freshly ground
raw spinach. The patties looked pretty
with the flecks of green, but the taste just
wasn't what I hoped for so from now on
I will stick with carrot.
Next I made gluten free blueberry muffins
with brown rice flour and they were a little
on the dry side, ahem. They weren't wasted
though since I have a 17 year old garbage
disposal with legs and he loved them. Gluten
free cooking is new to me and I definitely
need more practice.
I've enjoyed this week and now I am getting
ready for the long weekend and spending
time with my favorite six year old. There
are no plans, just hanging out here and
playing, I'm so excited!
I wish you all the love, light, beauty, truth
and peace that this universe has to offer,
from my heart to yours, you deserve it!
