Nothing major today. But here are few things we've been up to:
-Burning incense (this one is a favorite) while researching, studying, and planning our upcoming speaking engagements.
-Cooking up a storm: Garden Rice Pilaf, Sea Bass & Quinoa Asian Salad, Lentil Stew.
-Checking on car options for our return to the States. (Technology has upgraded so much since our last car purchases. Oh my!)
-Building fires for our fireside Sunday reading ritual.
-Riding a bike daily on the river trail, with the doggies.
-Chatting with our nephew and making plans for a possible stay with us in Ecuador.
-Listening to gorgeous songs like: O nata lux, Lux aeterna, Miserere de mei, Deus.
-Adding a few new foods: Sauerkraut (I get mine made local by a woman from the Ukraine which is kinda cool), Grass-fed Ghee, Grass-fed Jerky, Wild Sardines, Atlantic Dulse, Spirulina, Turmeric (capsules).
-Trying out: Primordial Sound Meditation (like this one.)
-Baking gluten-free/vegan chocolate chip cookies.
-Ordering a ballot to VOTE while abroad.
-Working on copy for our new site, coordinating with our web designer (getting closer and closer and closer, dear friends!)
-Watching real estate listings in Brooklyn.
-Playing tug of war with Mama and her stuffed animals every. single. morning. She gets all the animals upstairs so she's ready the moment I get up. <It is darling every time.>
-Learning to sleep in her new doggie kennel (we're prepping her for flights later this year.)
-Currently at a doggie training camp and letting her trainer's daughter play dress-up with her.
-Greeting each guest that comes to our house with her outstretched paw.
-Also at doggie camp. Guarding her sister while she eats (to protect her from the other dogs at the camp.)
-At camp, she saw a guy that looked like Danny and watched him like a hawk for 10 minutes!
Love from all of us!
P.S. The scoop on the new foods:
Sauerkraut - a fermented food that contributes greatly to the microbial flora.
Grass-fed Ghee - a super healthy fat (clarified butter) that has the casein proteins removed.
Grass-fed Jerky - I'm experimenting with adding in more meat.
Wild Sardines - one of the BEST sources available for Omega 3. They're also chock full of vitamins.
Atlantic Dulse - helps to chelate heavy metals. (see here.)
Spirulina - a major source of protein. Also helps to chelate heavy metals. (see here.)
Turmeric - one of the most anti-inflammatory foods you can eat. Hugely helpful for autoimmune disease.
